Will it be All Too Hard for 2013 Futurity Stakes Contenders?

At $1.65 in the Group 1 2013 Futurity Stakes (1400m) market, star colt All Too Hard is one of the shortest-priced favourites you’ll find anywhere this weekend.

The half-brother to Black Caviar is the most valuable stallion prospect in the country and his recent form has been nothing short of spectacular.

His Caulfield Guineas win and Cox Plate second were backed up in his first start of the autumn when he flew down the outside to claim the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes.

But can this talented three-year-old justify his short price this weekend? Will he produce a flat run second-up? Keep reading to find out the stats that matter as well as the reasons as to why the good form can and can’t continue for the glamour galloper.
