2018 Predicted Finishing Order
The predicted finishing order for the 2018 Melbourne Cup will be published here in the days leading up to the race.
How do you determine the finishing order?
The predicted finishing order is based on a range of factors. These include but aren’t limited to;
- Breeding & bloodlines.
- Horses form with track and condition both in Australia and abroad.
- Barrier Draw
- Jockey & Trainer
Once all these factors and more have been taken into account our professional tipster, who tipped last year’s winner and quinella ($151 fixed!), will order them into his predicted finishing order.
How accurate is the predicted finishing order?
The Melbourne Cup is one of the hardest races on the planet to predict given the large field and form lines from all across the globe. So predicting the finishing order is a near impossible task. While we do our best we also expect our readers to take our predicted results with a grain of salt.
Despite this we have had reasonable success in the past tipping winners including last year’s winner Almandin who won paying $11.
