Melbourne Cup 2010 Betting Tips

The best 2010 Melbourne Cup betting tips to help you pick the winner of the $6 million handicap at Flemington today can be found below as the team at look at the Melbourne Cup winning history and stats to find the value in the field today.

The 2010 Melbourne Cup field features 23 runners following the scratching of #18 Bauer this morning.

Melbourne Cup Tip # 1 – Look at Wet Track Form:

With the Flemington track currently rated a Slow 6 and the possibility of things getting wetter and softer oncourse today, looking for horses in the Melbourne Cup field that can handle the conditions and have proven form over the ground will help you find value.

Melbourne Cup Tip # 2 – Barrier Draw:

The Melbourne Cup barrier draw can play a big part in the chances a horse has of wining the 3200m race. Barrier 21 produced last year’s Melbourne Cup winner Shocking. Wider draws prove more favourable, so barrier eight or further outside.

Remember, with Bauer out who was drawn in barrier 2, every horse except for Descarado (already on the rails), moves in one today.

No Melbourne Cup winner has ever started from barrier 18, which is now Campanologist today.

Melbourne Cup Tip # 3 – Bart:

Bart Cummings is the Cups King with 12 Melbourne Cup winners. He knows how to train them for the Cup and has plenty of experience taking home the Loving Trophy. So You Think is the red hot favourite and the Bart factor means you should have him at least in your exotics, even if you don’t think he can win over the distance.
