How to Pick the Melbourne Cup First Four Bet

It is incredibly difficult to just pick the first four finishers, let alone the exact order they finish in. This is why most serious bettors making a Melbourne Cup First Four bet will make it a box bet.

If you decide to go with a box bet, your first step to winning is to narrow down your picks. The Melbourne Cup field is large, with a capacity 24 starters, making it even tougher for the punters doing the Melbourne Cup Tips.

For a Melbourne Cup First Four box, you really just need to decide where you will stop with picks. Take into account the weights the horses are carrying, ages, spring carnival performance, and previous Melbourne Cup results.

You are looking for the horses that stand a chance of finishing in the first four, not just those with a chance to win. A Melbourne Cup First Four box bet will usually need to cover a large portion of the field to be successful.

Placing a Melbourne Cup Box First Four Bet

Once you have made your picks for your Melbourne Cup First Four box bet, you will want to calculate how much it costs.

The formula for working out the cost of a First Four bet is (number of horses selected) X (number of horses selected – 1) X (number of horses selected – 2) X (number of horses selected – 3) X base bet amount.

For example, if you have a First Four box bet on the Melbourne Cup with 6 selections at a $1 base bet, you would have a bet of (6)X(6-1)X(6-2)X(6-3)X$1 to equal $360.
