As one of the four Group 1 Melbourne Cup Carnival races held on Victoria Derby Day the Saturday before the iconic Melbourne Cup on the first Tuesday of November annually, the Kennedy Cantala tips are some of the most popular with punters every spring.

Each year the Group 1 Kennedy Cantala (1600m) – formerly the Emirates Stakes run the following weekend – attracts a star-studded field of the season’s best milers and the showdown takes place at Flemington Racecourse in late October / early November.

As soon as the Kennedy Cantala Field is released the Wednesday before Victoria Derby Day, punters are keen to uncover the winning Kennedy Cantala tips.

Looks enormous value on the Hawkes Racing-trained Wild Planet in an open and winnable edition of the Cantala. Loves the track (4:2-2-0) and was strong at Caulfield winning the Moonga in easier grade over 1400m. Carried 59kg there and is down to 55kg for this. Up in grade and needs to run out the distance, but has William Pike in the saddle and the Perth hoop has been on fire this season in Melbourne.

2020 Kennedy Cantala Lead Up Races

Checkout the Kennedy Cantala Form Guide for the lead-up form the runners in the mile feature have come out of. Because the race was, up until 2016, run a week later as the feature of Emirates Stakes Day this form line is harder to follow. The best guides to the Kennedy Cantala Results in recent history have been the Group 2 Crystal Mile (1600m) and the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) both now run the Saturday before the race.

2020 Kennedy Cantala Favourite

The Kennedy Cantala favourites have been moderately successful for punters in the past decade or so, so tipping the shortest-priced runner in the Kennedy Mile betting markets each spring is a good tip. From 2008 – 2015 three of the eight favourites in the Kennedy Mile odds got the job done. During that time there were also a number of upset Cantala Stakes results from longer-priced winners including: Albert The Fat ($16 in 2011), All American ($40 in 2009) and Tears I Cry ($101 in 2007) who won at triple-figures!

Exotic Kennedy Cantala Bets

Exotic Kennedy Cantala bets are more complex than simple win, place and each-way bets. However, they do offer longer odds and are therefore more lucrative when your selections come through.

Exotic Kennedy Cantala bets include trifectas, quinellas, exactas and First Four bets. All of these best require you to choose more than just the winner, which makes them more difficult to pick and so they get longer odds.
