The 2013 Melbourne Cup trifecta and first four pools have reached astronomical figures in the past, with these exotic dividends paying out an average of $4,207.76 for the trifecta and $33,759.20 for the first four in the past three years, and with such a talented field in the 2013 edition of the race the dividends are sure to be extremely large once again.

2013 Melbourne Cup Best Bets – Quinella

Sea Moon and Seville

Lloyd Williams has won the Melbourne Cup on four previous occasions but, unlike master trainer Bart Cummings, has never prepared the quinella of ‘the race that stops a nation’.

You can make a case for all six of Williams’ runners in the 2013 Melbourne Cup but Sea Moon and Seville are both in winning form, after winning the Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes (2400m) and Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m) respectively, and are sure to run out a strong 3200 metres.

2013 Melbourne Cup Best Bets – Trifecta

Sea Moon from Dear Demi and Masked Marvel

This is a sneaky trifecta play that could result in a massive payout if Sea Moon, Dear Demi and Masked Marvel are the first horses across the line in the Melbourne Cup at Flemington this afternoon.

Sea Moon is one of the best winning chances in the race, while Dear Demi and Masked Marvel are both consistent stayers who are sure to play in the finish; with both finishing in the placings in their past two starts.

2013 Melbourne Cup Best Bests – First Four

Sea Moon from Dear Demi, Masked Marvel and Ibicenco

This first four is a real lottery ticket but if it is successful it will likely break the record of $ $1,467,099 that was set by the first four of Green Moon, Fiorente, Jakkalberry and Kelinni in the 2012 Melbourne Cup.

Ibicenco is a rank outside in 2013 Melbourne Cup betting markets but he is a tough stayer who will run the distance out strongly and is in-form after winning the Group 3 Geelong Cup (2400m) in the lead-up to his tilt at the 2013 Melbourne Cup.
