Melbourne Cup 2012 Tips – Quinella

The count down to Australia’s biggest race, the $6 million 2012 Melbourne Cup (3200m) is nearly over so it’s time to work out your 2012 Melbourne Cup tips.

With the field labelled by many as one of the best ever, are here to help narrow down your Melbourne Cup selections with our 2012 Melbourne Cup quinella tip.

Why just back the winner outright when you can have more fun and increase your chance of a big win by choosing the first two horses past the post?

Interestingly this year, the past two Melbourne Cup quinellas will again be running, with 2010 top two Americain and Maluckyday joined in the field by 2011 quinella Dunaden and Red Cadeaux. 2012 Melbourne Cup Quinella Tip

#8 Mount Athos $7.00 and #1 Dunaden $7.50

It will come as little surprise that we have selected two overseas raiders to fill the top two spots in race 7 on Tuesday.

Mount Athos is a form galloper from the Newmarket stable of famous trainer Luca Cumani and provided he has travelled well enough he could be the one to deliver Cumani his first Melbourne Cup.

This son of Montjeu won three consecutive races in the UK during their summer including announcing himself as a genuine cup contender when winning the Group 3 Geoffrey Freer Stakes (2670m) by nearly four lengths ahead of the well-known Brown Panther.

Drew barrier eight which Cumani said was “great” and is well weighted with 54kg, which is 0.5kg less than Dunaden carried to victory last year.

Dunaden is a classy stayer and despite the 59kg he has to carry, he is deservedly one of the top fancies againt this year.

Carried 58kg to power through the line to a Caulfield Cup win and looks an improved horse from the one that beat Red Cadeaux last year.
