Melbourne Cup tips on which horses in the field for the world’s richest handicap to back in Flemington Race 7 at 3:00pm (AEDT) on the first Tuesday of November are highly sought after. Each year punters are keen to get the insider Melbourne Cup tips to sort the pretenders from the genuine contenders in the $8 million Group 1 showdown.

Melbourne Cup Tips 2020

Our insider Melbourne Cup betting tips including the horses to back for the Melbourne Cup Trifecta on the first Tuesday of November will be detailed below the week of the race so stay tuned.

Early Melbourne Cup Tips are to watch the international stayers contending Royal Ascot races over the winter and the lead-up spring racing form of horses that performed well over the autumn carnival.

In 2020 however, the COVID-19 pandemic means local horses are more likely to dominate the Melbourne Cup 2020 field and tips.

Punters can lock in their Melbourne Cup race selections at juicy all-in prices online right now with Ladbrokes, with big Flemington odds on offer for horses tipped to run in the Melbourne Cup field.

  • To Win: #23 Miami Bound ($31 at time of publish) 

She’s a genuine roughie in the market, but this VRC Oaks winner for last year’s successful stable was excellent winning the MV Cup in the lead-up. She’ll run out the two miles and is a light-weight hope forgotten in a market dominated by internationals.

  • The Danger: #1 Anthony Van Dyck ($7.50 at time of publish) 

He has to do it with that top weight, not an easy task, but his second in the Caulfield Cup first-up down under was excellent. The barrier three draw here suits, he’s got the class, hugh Bowman can get him inthe right position and just needs to hold off those lower down the weights to win this for Ireland’s Aidan O’Brien.

  • Each Way: #5 Sir Dragonet ($8.50 at time of publish) 

Lock in the Cox Plate champion Each Way. Ciaron Maher & David Eustace now prepare this import and had immediate success in the WFA feature last weekend. It’s no easy feat to now step up to 3200m, and the draw doesn’t help, but think he could be a genuine star.
