Run over 1600m, the 2020 Cantala Stakes looks incredibly even, as we should expect from a Group One Handicap.

Fifty Stars was runner-up in this race last year and looks as if he is ready to peak third-up into his campaign, while Chief Ironside was scratched from a wet track last week in favour of a much drier track here.

2020 Cantala Stakes Tips

Cantala Stakes 2020 Best Bet - Fifty Stars

The class of the race who finished second last year, before subsequently winning the Australian Cup in his following prep.

He has been travelling along really nicely this time in, not having won, but hitting the line very well, including last start in the Moonga behind Wild Planet.

He will be ridden cold and looking to hit the line with gusto, if the likes of Streets of Avalon, Age Of Chivalry, Buffalo River and possibly The Velvet king can roll along.

Although carrying the top weight, he's a weight-for-age group one winner at Flemington and certainly has the class to take this out.

Cantala Stakes 2020 Next Best Bet - King's Legacy

The 3YO tackles the open handicap with just 51kg and Cox Plate winning jockey Glen Boss in the saddle.

He did not seem to be himself when running a shocker in the Caulfield Guineas, but we will put that down to not handling the track.

He looks as if Flemington will suit his style, get back and rocket to the line, although he may be able to settle two or three pairs closer with the light weight and positive gate.

Boss knows how to ride mile races, so epxect him to feature somewhere in the finish.

Cantala Stakes 2020 Value Bet - Chief Ironside

He has been going really well this prep and is flying under the radar.

He flopped in this race last prep after winning the Crystal Mile the week before, but that was due to the wet track, total opposite conditions to what he will get this week.

Third-up and sticking to the mile will suit well, so we are expecting him to be in the finish somewhere, but his main worry is that he might just lack a little bit of class to the top weights and some of these light weights who have been running well.

Verdict

Fifty Stars would love wet ground, and if this eventuates, we are happy to stick with him on top, but confidence is slightly dampened on a dry track.

King's Legacy will love getting to Flemington with the light weight.

Chief Ironside will love being on top of the ground at Flemington.
