Cantala Stakes Betting Odds

Cantala Stakes betting changed from 2016 onward. Run on VRC Derby Day, the race now known as the Cantala Stakes was formerly the Emirates Stakes (1600m) and run on the following Saturday. In 2016 the new-look Emirates Stakes runs over 2000m, the race formerly run as the Mackinnon Stakes moved and renamed.

This has impacted the Cantala Stakes betting markets as punters must look at horses with previous form over 1600m and those looking to run on Derby Day instead of a week later.

Strong milers will dominate the season’s Cantala Stakes odds and gallopers with form over further distance at other tracks stand a big chance down the testing Flemington straight.

A good early Cantala Stakes betting tip is to watch the form coming out of the Group 2 Crystal Mile (1600m) run over the same distance at Moonee Valley on Cox Plate Day. The last horse to complete the double was Turn Me Loose (2015).

Last start winners are also your best bet when looking over the Cantala Stakes betting markets as from 2013-15 all three winners came off a lead-up win in Melbourne.
