The 2013 Melbourne Cup is set to run at Flemington Racecourse in less than an hour and it’s time to determine who you are going to back in the field.
If you’re stuck when it comes to picking a winner then a good place to start is by checking exactly which horses have won over the distance before.
Green Moon, Voleuse De Coeurs, Simenon and Ibicenco has all won over the two mile trip in the past and have no query surrounding this year’s run.
Last year’s winner, Green Moon, will be looking to win his first race this year when he lines up for the 2013 Melbourne Cup.
The six-year-old placed ninth in the Group 1 Cox Plate last start and will be out to go eight places better in the 2013 Melbourne Cup field.
Green Moon placed seventh in last year’s Cox Plate before storming to victory in the $6 million Cup.
Voleuse De Coeurs is the only horse to have a perfect record at the 3,200 metre distance.
The four-year-old won her most recent start in the Group 1 Irish St Leger on September 15, 2013, by an astronomical six lengths.
Voleuse De Coeurs is paying $34 at Ladbrokes.com.au with Double The Odds to win the 2013 Melbourne Cup.
