He’ll be All Too Hard to beat in 2013 Futurity Stakes

Both form and betting suggest dual Group 1 winner All Too Hard will be extremely difficult to upset in the Group 1 2013 Futurity Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on Saturday.

The Team Hawkes-trained three-year-old is a $1.60 favourite to continue his impressive early autumn form after storming down the outside to win the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes first-up.

Drawn ideally in barrier four for regular jockey Dwayne Dunn, the pin-up colt has a distinct advantage under the weight-for-age conditions of the race.

All Too Hard will be asked to carry 55.5kg which is 3.5kg less than his fellow males in the race and 1.5kg less than Lights Of Heaven and Koonoomoo who are the only mares in the race.

If all goes to plan and the half-brother to Black Caviar gets through this weekend’s test unscathed, he could back up the following week in the Group 1 2013 Australian Guineas (1600m) at Flemington.

Co-trainer Wayne Hawkes is confident the stable star is at the top of his game for the Futurity Stakes but is by no means writing off his opponents.

”King Mufhasa has won the race before and will be fitter, while Green Moon is a top class stayer and won first-up last Autumn,” Hawkes told Racing Victoria.

But both King Mufhasa and Green Moon will have to overcome some serious obstacles if they are to beat Australia’s most valuable stallion prospect.

New Zealand veteran King Mufhasa was beaten 1 1/2 lengths when fifth in the CF Orr Stakes and Green Moon has never won at less than 1600m.

Hakwes is hoping All Too Hard can slot into a perfect position behind the speed, with his ideal scenario seeing Glass Harmonium and King Mufhasa challenging each other for the leader’s position.

”It would suit me just fine to have to have King Mufhasa and Glass Harmonium tearing at each other in front,” Hawkes said.
