2019 Cantala Stakes Tips

The Canatala Stakes is a Group One contest run on the first day of the Flemington carnival over a mile.

This race carries a purse of $1 million and has been won by some of the best handicap, middle distance horses we have seen.

This year looks an even contest with Group One winners Royal Meeting and Fierce Impact heading the market from Night's Watch and Cascadian.

Cantala Stakes Best Bet - Chief Ironside @ $12

I hope everyone got $51 after his first-up run when bookmakers updated their markets.

He was explosive at Moonee Valley last week when winning the Crystal Mile at $31.

Before this, his run was fantastic first up in the Toorak when having no luck in the straight. 

He was travelling in the run as if he had something to give but just could not show this, stuck behind runners the whole way down the straight.

He now has the crucial Australian win on the board and can serve it up the Australian horses at the big, spacious Flemington track.

Cantala Stakes Value Bet - Royal Meeting @ $8

I think the internationals are the standout horses of the Spring and they both will feature here.

Although disappointing to eye first-up, his run in the Moonga was actually full of merit, being caught three-wide on a track that probably does not suit his style of running.

Something that most people would not have seen before the race is that he actually had cut his mouth on the bit when I saw him pre-race.

This may have caused him discomfort which is another reason to forgive him.

Now he gets to Flemington and ultimately what will be his grand final and main aim for the preparation. 

The mile will suit and if he can draw soft, he should be explosive as he was in France for his Group One win.
