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 and he backed that performance up with a second in the Group 1 Champions Mile.

A consistent gelding who is now one of the premier weight-for-age gallopers in Australia, Mr Brightside is fancied in many summer/autumn features and that includes the Australian Cup, which he is the $5 favourite for with Unibet Australia

Alligator Blood ($8) won a Rosehill trial on January 11, which was his first public showing for the year, with the seven-year-old spelled following a third in the Champions Mile.

The Waterhouse & Bott-trained galloper proved his credentials over this distance last campaign when recording a two-length victory in the Group 1 Might And Power.

Atishu is one of six runners on the third line of betting at $11 and given she bolted in over this track/trip in spring when taking out the Champions Stakes, the Chris Waller mare should have her fair share of admirers for this feature.

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.
