The form tips and expert selections on Flemington Race 7 are flooding in with the count down on until 3:00pm (AEDT) and below is the late mail 2016 Melbourne Cup Exacta betting tip.

A capacity 24-starter field is engaged for this year’s $6.2 million Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) giving race fans and punters plenty of form and historical data to sort through to find this year’s Melbourne Cup winner.

Markets at have three single figure Melbourne Cup betting fancies led by the John O’Shea-trained Hartnell who has eased out to $6 to become the fourth winner since 2000 to come off a Cox Plate run.

Earlier we released our exclusive 2016 Melbourne Cup Trifecta Tip, but what two horses and in what finishing order should you lock into that Melbourne Cup Exacta bet at


#1 Big Orange ($12)

Now is the time to cash in on the value in the Melbourne Cup field and betting markets with the money coming in for this Michael Bell-trained British raider. The internationals have a strong recent record in the Melbourne Cup results, but no British visitor has been first past the post as yet. Last year Big Orange ran 2.4 lengths back fifth to Prince Of Penzance ($101) finishing just out of the Melbourne Cup First Four. He is going better 12 months on and was last seen carting 61kg to victory in the Group 2 Goodwood Cup (3219m) in late July. Historically he can’t win not having had a race in Australia since, but the Melbourne Cup is won on the turf at Flemington not the history books.


#6 Hartnell ($6)

Hartnell was well-supported in Melbourne Cup betting early when the field was first released, but with all the tips coming in there’s been money for plenty of his rivals seeing his price drift to $6. Likely to see him continue to ease in his price, but can’t see him not jumping favourite. He is just going too good form-wise and within himself not to have him battling it out in the Melbourne Cup Exacta. Needs to settle early and save the energy, and think he’ll be just off the Melbourne Cup winner.
