With plenty of money in the exotics pools, value can be had on Tuesday and in our preview, the focus will be on the trifectas, both in standing the favourite out with more options for second and third, along with a boxed trifecta of five selections should Incentivise lose.

Check out who we are placing in our exotics for the 2021 Melbourne Cup.

2021 Melbourne Cup Exotics Definitions

Quinella - Selected horses must run in the first two placings as they cross the finish line.

Exacta - Selected horses must finish in first and second spot, in the correct order that you choose them in, unless the bet is boxed where they can finish in any order.

Trifecta - Selected horses must run in the first three placings as they cross the finish line.

First Four - Selected horses must finish in the first four placings as they cross the finish line.

2021 Melbourne Cup Exotics Tips

Boxed Trifecta


Selections: 1,2,3, 21 & 22. $60 gets you 100%.

Limitind this tip to five runners for the Boxed Trifecta option, form and class tells us that both Twilight Payment and Spanish Mission are likely threats to Incentivise.

While it's debatable, we feel down in the weights that both Tralee Rose (can find a new peak off a brave Geelong Cup win and hasn't finished outside the top two at Flemington) and Floating Artist (has escaped the handicapper in last two outings) profile the best of the rest.

Trifecta


Selections: 2/1,3,4,12,15,16,19,21,22 & 24/1,3,4,12,15,16,19,21,22 & 24. $90 gets you 100%.

Having Incentivise stood out in this option allows us to go deeper in the selections for second and third.

The more popular runners added to this trifecta is the star mare Verry Elleegant and Grand Promenade, while Persan Sir Lucan and especially She's Ideel (100/1) are included.

Punters can also take a fraction of this with the 'flexi option', with even a $20 spend still allowing for 22.22% of the dividend.
