  • Read what the experts have to say – The best way to get information on the Melbourne Cup is to read the data and analysis yourself. Some horse betting experts offer their picks for free like us right here at Races.com.au.Some experts provide analysis for their picks. Reading the opinions of others will help shape your opinion. Weigh their opinions carefully and do not hesitate to consult other punters or read experts that contradict your analysis. This way, you can have all bases covered when you make your wager.
  • Invest money to win money – Most punters are usually conservative with the money that they are willing to risk. While it is true that you should not risk money that you cannot afford to lose, it is better not to bet than make an improper bet just because you are not committed to make a full bet. Exotic bets like Trifecta require a larger sum to have a realistic chance of winning. If you seriously want to win in exotic wagers, you have to pay for the best combination. Otherwise, stick to simpler bets with lesser payouts.
  • Recent Performance and Workouts – Many punters wagering on the Melbourne Cup will tell you that the horse is only as good as his last race. Experienced punters carefully study the last couple of races and find a trend in their performance. In addition, punters can also look at their recent workouts to have a better judge of their current form.
  • Condition of the Track – The overall condition of the track including the wind, weather, and the softness of the soil matter in the race. Although Flemington is one of the well-maintained race tracks in the world, slight changes in track conditions favour certain runners in the field while putting some runners at a disadvantage.

Other factors that can influence Melbourne Cup betting include the expertise and reputation of the jockeys and trainers, injuries, and medication changes.
