The Free Melbourne Cup Horse Racing Betting System

This horse racing betting system selection method has consistently highlighted the best winning chances in the Melbourne Cup. Last year it found the $8.50 Melbourne Cup winner Dunaden. In 2010 it found the $13.00 Melbourne Cup winner, Americain. While in 2009 it found the $17.00 Melbourne Cup winner, Shocking.

Here are the tips to help you find the Melbourne Cup winner.

1. The horse should have finished no further back than fourth at its last start.

2. Look for good performers, particularly in the Caulfield Cup, Cox Plate Day and Derby Day - the Saturday before the Melbourne Cup. The 2009 Melbourne Cup Winner, Shocking won over 2500 metres on Derby Day.

3. Don't ignore horses that have at least placed over 3200 metres.

4. Look for a leading jockey, preferably a jockey with local knowledge.

5. Look for trainers with a track record of success in the Melbourne Cup and big Group races.

6. Look for last start winners, particularly dropping in handicapped weight. The 2011 Melbourne Cup winner, Dunaden, was a last start winner dropping 3.5kg. in handicapped weight. In 2010 Americain was a last start winner and dropped 3.5 kg. in handicapped weight when it won the 2010 Melbourne Cup. While in 2009 Shocking was a last start winner and dropped 2.5 kg. in weight before winning the 2009 Melbourne Cup.

7. If the track is rain affected, then check that the horse has shown it can handle the going. A horse won't be scratched on Cup Day because it's raining - but after the race we'll be told, "It didn't handle the conditions."

Good luck.
