At first glance, the analysis shows that the Top 3 weighted horses have not won, or placed between 2012 and 2018.
- There have been five horses that have carried 56.5 kg. One of them has won.
- All of the past winners carried 56.5 or less.
What can we take away from this analysis?
Anything over 57.5 kg has not won or placed, and the winning rides carried 56.5 kg or less. Many of the runners carry between 54 and 54.5 kg, yet none of them has won a race.
How can I use this information?
If you into lay betting (betting the horse won’t win), then taking a look at horses carried 54.4/54.5 kg is a great place to start. Out of 40 runners carrying this weight, none have won a Melbourne cup race between 2012 and 2018.
