It’s time to go head-to-head with your mates with our 2021 Melbourne Cup sweep generator. Here’s how you can easily take part for the big day.
To take part, simply follow the instructions below.
But which numbers do you want to see next to your name?
The luckiest numbers in the Cup are saddlecloth numbers 4 and 12 with 11 wins each while
No. 1 has won it 10 times. But on the flip side No. 7, 18 and 21 have only tasted victory twice each.
Barrier curses are a real thing with no horse ever winning from barrier 18 while barrier 5 has been the most successful with eight winners.
Since 1983 barriers 6, 12, 15, 18, 22 and 24 haven’t produced a Cup winner.
And how about the colours? And the odds?
Blue and black are the silks with the best record. In recent history navy blue (ie Lloyd Williams) and royal blue have been the most successful.
Favourites don’t have a great record with only 34 in the race’s history saluting, the last one being Fiorente in 2013.
This is probably the most pressing for Incentivise who many consider already over the line.
