While he's yet to win in three attempts past a mile, Mr Brightside was narrowly defeated in the 2023 Cox Plate via his last try in this distance range.

With back-to-back Group 1 wins in the Cf Orr Stakes and Futurity Stakes, the six-year-old kicked off 2024 in style and while he was no match for Pride Of Jenni last start in the All-Star Mile, a wide gate did prove costly via that March 27 attempt.

Mr Brightside is a $3 second favourite with Unibet Australia to win the 2024 Australian Cup, with Pride Of Jenni ($2.80) now heading the market.

The exciting front-runner has got the better of Mr Brightside in two of their last three clashes, which includes an outstanding last start display in the All-Star Mile.

2000m does look a query for the Ciaron Maher-trained mare, however, given she's failed via her only other try over this distance, although that defeat was on a heay track.

Three-time Group 1 winner Cascadian ($7) is aiming to defend his Australian Cup crown and the Godolphin veteran is ticking over well, arriving here off a third in the All-Star Mile.

Atishu is one of two runners on the fourth line of betting at $9 and given she bolted in over this track/trip in spring when taking out the Champions Stakes, the Chris Waller-trained mare should have her fair share of admirers for this feature, especially.

The daughter of Savabeel did bounce back with a second-up victory last start and she does have a decent overall record at Flemington.

Australian Cup Winners

The Australian Cup is one of Victoria’s most prestigious middle-distance autumn races. 

Now worth $3 million, this 2000m weight-for-age contest will effectively round out the Melbourne Autumn Carnival in 2023, with this race being pushed to the end of March and allowing the All-Star Mile to be run one week earlier.

The legendary Bart Cummings leads the training record for the Australian Cup with 13 wins overall, while Tom Hales is the most successful jockey, riding eight Australian Cup winners from 1875 to 1890.

In what's arguably become a stronger race in the last 50 years, champions such as Leilani, Dulcify, Vo Rogue, Better Loosen Up. Northerly and Makybe Diva all feature on the winners list.

Homesman (2021), Duais (2022) and Cascadian (2023) have won the last three editions of the Australian Cup.
