The first four on the Melbourne Cup has the possibility to pay out enough to cover your rent for a month anywhere up to buying you a brand new house.

With so many punters pouring so much money into the race the first four pool is simply massive.

Combine that with the sheer number of runners and the possibility of a huge dividend is plain to see.
