Melbourne Cup 2019 predictions are in and the international runners are expected to win. With the market narrowed to 24 runners, experts are weighing in. Of course, the odds are the most important, so we’re reviewing them for tomorrow’s races. As always, this is just speculation, so we recommend hedging bets for this year’s event.
Tab is offering some great odds on Cross Counter and Mer De Glace for first and second. With Master of Reality to place third. This is a great three-way bet, since we don’t recommend straight bets in this case. Race 7 is the one to watch, but the others are equally exciting for racing fans who want to make some cash.
Melbourne Cup 2019 Predictions
While experts agree on Caulfield Cup winner Cross Counter, there’s a chance that he could lose. Back-to-back events are usually where winning horses lose momentum. However, he still tops the list for the Melbourne Cup 2019 predictions. Our experts believe that he could take it, if he’s rested enough and given the room to move.
Constantinople is an underdog favourite, as is Vow and Declare. These selections are a passable top four, but filling out a six square is less certain.
