Top Picks For Melbourne Cup Quinella 2011

There’s no greater feeling than picking the winner of the Melbourne Cup, except maybe picking the first two!

In 2011 it looks as if there’s quite a good chance for punters to pick the quinella as well with a top group of horses seemingly separating themselves form the pack.

Let’s be honest snagging the Melbourne Cup quinella is never going to be ‘easy’, but that’s exactly why it has so much attraction.


Americain a top pick to feature in 2011 Melbourne Cup Quinella

Listen to the stories of the old timers that have been going to the Melbourne Cup for decades and no doubt if they’ve got the quinella before it’s a story they’ll enjoying telling time and time again.

You can get lucky and pick a Melbourne Cup winner but getting the first two is a true sing that you’ve done your homework and read the form right.

We’d like to help you get your own little bit of history which is why we’ve put a guide below to picking the 2011 Melbourne Cup quinella.

2011 Melbourne Cup Quinella

#1 – Americain ($5 @ Luxbet)

He’s the defending champion and on the back of his Moonee Valley Cup win he simply has to be a force again in the 2011 Melbourne Cup. Forget the big weight as he’s a strong type and he’s dealt with plenty more than this over in Europe. Unlike a lot of Europeans he has a little bit of early speed to not get buried back in the pack and his closing kick can be second to none. We expect him to come very close to making it back to back wins and he’ll probably win the race.

#3 Dunaden ($7.50 @ Luxbet)

He’s out to repeat the effort of Americain last year so it’s only fitting that these two are the ones battling it out on the line. Dunaden took the first step in replicating Americain by winning the Geelong Cup, a race that’s become a huge form race for the Melbourne Cup. Over the last five years the Geelong Cup winner has always gone on to at least place in the Melbourne Cup and we expect it to be no different again. Will it be the master or the new arrival? Either way it’s going to be a French one / two in the race that stops the nation.

Value Quinella Roughies

If you’re looking for some more value in your quinella then these are a few of the horses you should also be looking at.

#7 – Unusual Suspect ($35 @ Luxbet)

Ran the fastest final sectionals from last in the Caulfield Cup and could be a big danger on the wide open Flemington circuit.

#14 – At First Sight ($14 @ Luxbet)

Another late swooper with a huge turn of foot that can come very close if he gets some luck in the run.

#22 – Tullamore ($26 @ Luxbet)

Consistent as the day is long and versatile enough to settle anywhere, best chance for Gai to claim a maiden Melbourne Cup win.

These are the best options for the 2011 Melbourne Cup quinella and are best supported by the Tabcorp owned Luxbet.
