How to Pick the Melbourne Cup Quinella
Compared to picking the Melbourne Cup Trifecta or Melbourne Cup Exacta, picking the Melbourne Cup quinella is a piece of cake!
As usual some reasoning beyond your pick beyond “a lucky feeling” will improve your chances. Consider the favourites and how dominant they are compared to the rest of the pack. If you find you can’t narrow it down to just two, then go with a box quinella to cover the full range of possibilities.
Where to Place a Melbourne Cup Quinella
We recommend that you place your Melbourne Cup quinella at an online betting site, as it is the most convenient option and will often offer the best odds. Our favourite site is Ladbrokes.com.au as they offer the best prices and betting bonuses.
Beginners are encouraged to try placing a quinella at Ladbrokes.com.au first as its betting system is very intuitive. You simply find the Melbourne Cup, choose the quinella bet type, mark the boxes for your selections, then click the “place bet” button and enter the amount you wish to wager.
Placing a Melbourne Cup Box Quinella
If you can’t limit your picks to just two runners, then you can try placing a Melbourne Cup Box Quinella. This is essentially placing every combination of quinella bets involving the horses you pick.
The cost of your Melbourne Cup quinella is equal to (the number of horses you are choosing X [the number of horses you are choosing -1]) X your base bet amount.
For example, if you have narrowed it down to 5 horses and want to place $1 per combination, your total Melbourne Cup box quinella will cost (5X[5-1]) X $1 to equal $20.
So head to Ladbrokes.com.au now and get ready to place your Melbourne Cup bets this spring!
