RMIT maths wiz crunches stats for Melbourne Cup 


What are the chances of your tip winning the Melbourne Cup?


Which horse is the best outside bet?


What do 60,000 mathematical simulations of the race predict?


Dr Anthony Bedford is the Head of the Sports Statistics Group at RMIT University.


Dr Bedford and his team of researchers have simulated statistics for the 2009

Melbourne Cup.


The predictions are based on simulating times for different tracks – good, dead,

slow and heavy – for all the horses.


Based on history, weights, track, time, distance, the group simulates the race

60,000 times to come up with their predictions.
