Melbourne Cup Trifecta Tips

Looking for Melbourne Cup Trifecta Tips and First 4 Predictions? Our form analyst has a great record landing the exotics and reveals his betting strategy to try and win big.

Anchor Horses

The 2020 renewal of the Melbourne Cup looks to be a wide-open contest with at least five horses that stand out as top winning chances.

As well as that quintet, every other runner is in with a chance and the Melbourne Cup always delivers at least one rough result in the First 4.

My top pick is PERSAN ($41) and you can read why in my Melbourne Cup Tips & Preview for 2020. VERRY ELLEEGANT and PRINCE OF ARRAN are the two I want to follow from the Caulfield Cup, while SURPRISE BABY and TIGER MOTH have the x-factor and must be included.

Second Tier Horses

Those that fall just below my top five include ANTHONY VAN DYCK, MASTER OF REALITY, STRATUM ALBION, RUSSIAN CAMELOT and MIAMI BOUND.

Third Tier Horses

Those in with a rougher hope to fill third or fourth include: AVILIUS, SIR DRAGONET, FINCHE, KING OF LEOGRANCE, STEEL PRINCE and ASHRUN.
