A Melbourne Cup quinella is a great way to get paid when you are betting on a somewhat unreliable runner, or when you think it is too close to call.

A quinella is a bet on which two horses will finish first and second, but you do not have to pick the exact order. As long as your two picks finish in first and second, you will get paid.

An example of a successful Melbourne Cup quinella from the 2023 race was

  • 1st: #3 Without A Fight ($8)
  • 2nd: #6 Soulcombe

If the Chris Waller-trained Soulcombe had defeated the last start Caulfield Cup champ Without A Fight, as long as you had those two horses in your Melbourne Cup quinella, the bet would have been successful.

How to Pick the Melbourne Cup Quinella

Compared to picking the Melbourne Cup Trifecta or Melbourne Cup Exacta, picking the Melbourne Cup quinella is much easier.

The best Melbourne Cup quinella tips include:

  • Looking for in-form stayers with strong form over 2400-3200m
  • Backing proven two-milers that can handle the distance and the tough Flemington straight
  • Backing horses further down the Melbourne Cup odds over the favourites who don’t have a great strike rate
  • Looking for the value Melbourne Cup international raiders in the field
  • Backing horses coming off a previous run down under

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!
