The bookmakers at Palmerbet are tipping Prince Of Arran in the Melbourne Cup

The race that stops a nation always provides plenty of value but the Palmerbet Price Push is an added incentive to increase the rewards. To help you identify the horses to use your Price Push on our team has tried to establish where the value will be.


2015 Melbourne Cup was an historic day when Michelle Payne became the first female rider to win the great race on Prince of Penzance. Can history repeat itself five years later and another Prince create his own mark with his female hoop aboard.

Jamie Kah is a female rider but beyond that tag she is the leading rider in Victoria this season and fresh off four winners on Cox Plate Day. She teams with an old Melbourne Cup veteran in PRINCE OF ARRAN whose run in the Caulfield Cup lead up was exceptional and a guide to his chances here.

The similarities with Michelle Payne’s historic win are too close to ignore. Firstly they both are riding a Prince, secondly they will both start from the inside barrier creating a distinct advantage. You will not get the 100/1 Michelle Payne and Prince of Penzance started but with Palmerbet Price Push, you can certainly pump more value into your odds.



In 1930, the year Phar Lap took out one of the most famous Melbourne Cups, Geoffrey de Havilland built an aircraft for the British Royal Air Force and named it the TIGER MOTH. 

Hard to imagine that 90 years on a horse from Ireland carrying the same name as one of the most reliable flying machines will be flying around Flemington as favourite in a Melbourne Cup but he is and he can win.

Arguably the worlds greatest trainer in Aidan O’Brien has been trying to take the Cup back to Ireland for a long time but his son beat him when Rekindling took out the 2017 running.

TIGER MOTH looks to be the best chance he has had for years. He has managed to escape the handicappers gaze and got in with a lightweight. Don’t worry about his barrier Kerrin McEvoy won the 2000 Cup from barrier 22 on Brew.

Looks ideal value and with the Palmerbet Price push the value only increases.



Surely ANTHONY VAN DYCK is the best credentialed import to take on the Melbourne Cup and arguably any import to race in Australia. This is an Epsom Derby winner and Irish Derby placegetter who beat the most hyped stayer in the world Stradivarius two starts back.

The story virtually writes itself with Aiden O’Brian chasing his first Cup and arguably Australia’s best rider in Hugh Bowman trying to win his first Melbourne Cup to add to his illustrious resume’.

ANTHONY VAN DYCK is the best horse in the race but he has to win under handicapped conditions but don’t let the punters be handicapped with the price. Add to his price with a Palmerbet Price Push and reap the rewards.
