Dissident Odds-On Favourite in 2015 Futurity Stakes Betting

The Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) is one of three Group One races running at Caulfield Racecourse this Saturday, attracting a small but high-class field of eight sprinters.

Just three runners are offering single figure odds in the betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au, led by odds-on favourite Dissident at $1.75.

The Peter Moody-trained horse is already a four-time Group One winner and will be in search of his fifth this Saturday. Dissident was odds-on favourite for the Group 2 Australia Stakes (1200m) first-up however the horse got lost on the tricky Moonee Valley circuit, just plugging home for third in a disappointing run.

However he returned to the form that wowed race fans during the spring on February 14 when he returned to Caulfield and stepped back up to 1400 metres for the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes. Dissident was smartly away before settling nicely in fourth place, one out and one back. He switched deep on straightening before quickly sprinting away from the 200m to win decisively.

Dissident will need to overcome a wide start from the outside gate, which is the only thing working against him ahead of Saturday’s race.

Peter Moody has won the Futurity Stakes twice in the past five years with Typhoon Tracy (2010) and Moment Of Change (2014) both completing the CF Orr-Futurity Stakes double.

Dissident appears to have the 2015 Futurity Stakes in the bag but he will have to face seven other top sprinters, including single figure hopefuls Entirely Platinum and Driefontein, both of which are paying odds of $6.50.

Team Hawkes’ five-year-old gelding Entirely Platinum was runner-up to Dissident in the CF Orr Stakes in a well-raced run that saw him beat many classier rivals to second place. Entirely Platinum has won four of his six starts over 1400m, the last of which was a Rosehill Handicap last August.

Entirely Platinum will jump from barrier six with Dwayne Dunn.

Gai Waterhouse’s Driefontein will enjoy the inside jump from barrier one as she continues on her lengthy campaign that has seen the racing since October and travel from Melbourne to Sydney to the Gold Coast back to Sydney and now returning home to Melbourne.

The tough mare remains without a win from her seven starts but has come very close her past three starts. She was a very good fourth in the Magic Millions Cup (1400m) on January 10, just three-quarters of a length off the winner, before being out bobbed on the line by Weary in the Group 2 Expressway Stakes (1200m) on the 29th. The mare was once again beaten late on the line in the Group 3 Southern Cross Stakes (1200m) two weeks ago.

The 2015 Futurity Stakes is sure to be an action-packed race with much on the line for all involved. Check out the live fixed-price odds for the race below and place your bet at Ladbrokes.com.au to receive a $250 bonus match on your first bet.
