Melbourne Cup 2022

Tips for Betting On the Melbourne Cup in 2022

The Melbourne Cup, known as the race that "stops a country," is just around the corner. For the first time ever, the classic Australian flat horse race will be held on Tuesday, November 1st, 2022. The Lexus Melbourne Cup, which has an $8 million prize fund, is the showpiece of the festival.

Along with some truly great Melbourne Cup betting markets, there are numerous additional races and exciting social events that are guaranteed to keep everyone entertained. Below are my top tips for this year's event if you are looking to place a bet.

Find The Best Melbourne Cup Betting Offers

Numerous races and fun social gatherings will be taking place in conjunction with the Melbourne Cup, including several with excellent betting opportunities. If you're interested in placing a wager on this year's tournament, it is vital that you shop around for the best Melbourne Cup betting offers so that if you do win, you win the maximum amount possible.

International Horses Have Been Dominating

Look for horses that have finished in the top three or higher throughout the entire distance. Although having a local jockey is a benefit, it isn't a must. The majority of imported racehorses originate from the United Kingdom and Ireland, but any Japanese-bred horses should be studied closely. If possible, try to find an imported runner with ties to the community in which you want to run.

There is a good chance that the field for the 2021 Melbourne Cup will be announced in the days leading up to post time. At 6/4, Incentivize, a multiple Group One-winning Australian thoroughbred racehorse, is the current betting favorite, but Spanish Mission is a more reasonable bet at 11/2, according to the current betting markets.

Despite the fact that this is going to be a 24-horse race, bookmakers and punters alike anticipate that it will come down to only two horses. Blading's Spanish Mission, which almost missed out on taking off Stradivarius at York last year, is coming closer to the front of the pack.

At roughly 14/1, last year's victor, Twilight Payment, is amid the betting. The Joseph O'Brien-trained horse came back to defend his championship after two fine races in Ireland, including a Group Three victory at The Curragh in the Irish St Leger Trial, which followed a second-place finish in the main event. Tralee Rose, who won the Geelong Cup in Group Three without a weight penalty, is also in the running.


Many bettors may be taking a chance on a name or a number they see in the form guide since the Melbourne Cup is notoriously difficult to predict. What are some things you can do to improve your chances of winning the Melbourne Cup? It's just as important to take horses out of your calculations as it is to include them.

Who do you think will win the Melbourne Cup in 2022? Let us know in the comments below which horses are your top picks.
