Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival Form Guide

Many of Australia’s and the world’s best thoroughbreds target the Melbourne Spring Carnival. 

It’s the most famous carnival in Australian racing and form can come from many different levels. 

Typically, winners of the Group 1 races have form at the top level. 

International raiders don’t necessarily need form at the top level to compete in Australia, as we’ve seen in the recent Melbourne Cup races. 

For the sprinting features during the Melbourne Spring Carnival, punters should look at the form from the Sydney Autumn Carnival. Form out of The Championships stacks up nicely and it usually carries over to Melbourne. 

For races like the Melbourne Cup, punters should look at not only international form but also runners that have come through the qualifying races. 

The Geelong Cup has had a good record of producing good winners. 

Overall, stick with the tried-and-tested runners when making bets during the Melbourne Spring Carnival.
