2021 Australian Cup Best Bets

There is a fair bit of value in the Australia Cup futures market, with a number of runner prominent in the market not heading to the race.

Arcadia Queen, Verry Elleegant, and Sir Dragonet are all very unlikely to line up in the 2021 Australian Cup, with Arcadia Queen and Sir Dragonet targeting the All Star Mile, and Verry Elleegant likely to stay in Sydney.

Nonconformist looks a reasonable chance at the double figure quote, and if Master Of Wine and Colette head to the race, they will be right in the finish.

Mount Popa is one to keep an eye on, he flashed home for second in Sydney and his 2021 Australian Cup odds were slashed from $51 to $26.
