The shortest priced horses in the Melbourne Cup odds only have a fair recent record in the time-honoured clash with the only favourite to win since Makybe Diva (2005) being Fiorente (2013). This opens up value in the Melbourne Cup odds and markets for punters then to tip an upset Melbourne Cup result. Recent upsets to salute at juicy Melbourne Cup odds include Prince Of Penzance ($101 in 2015), Green Moon ($21 in 2012) and Viewed ($41 in 2008).
