2021 Cantala Stakes Tips


Cantala Stakes 2021 Best Bet - Mr Brightside

Having won his last six races and simply flying through the grades, Mr Brightside faces his toughest test to date, but gets the luxury of a good barrier which has ultimately helped me land him on top in this field.

He settles forward and shows a sharp turn of foot once given his head, along with being proven at Flemington two starts back and enjoying this flat track.

After proving too good in the Seymour Cup last start, he will be right and ready to be winning at the highest level for the first time in his career with some stakes form coming out of that event.

Cantala Stakes 2021 Next Best Bet - Aramayo

He is low-flying this galloper who raced in the Derby as a three-year-old before heading to Singapore and racing in some top class races, subsequently coming back to Australia as a much sharper horse this time around.

His run last start in the Epsom Handicap was fantastic, looking the winner before being just nabbed by Private Eye who came from last to win.

He once again gets in light with just 53.5kg and with the right run from gate 3 with Glen Boss in the saddle, we could see him claim this Group One.

Cantala Stakes 2021 Value Bet - Cascadian

The baldy faced chestnut finished third here in 2019 and second in 2020, so maybe 2021 is the year for the big boy Cascadian?

He will have to give some good horses a bit of weight seeing as he is carrying 57.5kg, but his fourth placing in the Epsom says he still has what it takes to pinch another handicap.

He is going to get right back from the wide barrier, but as he has done in years before, watch down the outside of the field as that is exactly where this boy will be making his run.
