Nothing will make your day more than pulling off a Melbourne Cup trifecta on race day. Trust us we know as we nailed it last year and you will be the envy of all your mates and become a legend within the office.

So who to back in for your Melbourne Cup trifecta? Well, we have some insights below for you on strong trifecta and boxed trifecta bets.

Trifecta is when you are able to pick 3 horses to finish in the exact order ie first, second and third – yes it’s very hard!

A boxed trifecta, however, is a little more fun allowing you to choose multiple horses in which any of them can finish first, second or third – allowing you a greater chance to win – however this generally means you will win less and have to bet a higher amount to claim a decent amount of the trifecta payout percentage.
