2015 Futurity Stakes Betting Tips

Racing fans and punters alike will be spoilt for choice this weekend with three Group One races running at Caulfield Racecourse alone.

Eight sprint-mile runners have a chance to win at the highest level in the Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m), three of which are offering single figure odds in the betting at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Peter Moody’s Dissident is the $1.70 odds-on favourite to win the race considering the 1400 metre distance at Caulfield is the four-year-olds ideal race conditions.

Dissident won the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) at the track first-up last spring and after getting off to a rough start in the Group 2 Australia Stakes (1200m) on January 24, returned to the winner’s circle with a strong victory in the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) two weeks ago on February 14, earning his fourth Group One in his short career.

The bookies would have you think the Futurity Stakes is a tailor-made race for Dissident, and it may be, but will the odds-on favourite win his fifth Group One race or is he in for a shock upset once again?

Check out our 2015 Futurity Stakes betting tips below to get an idea of who the main contenders are.


#1 Dissident ($1.70

You really can’t go past the Futurity Stakes favourite Dissident. Four of the past six winners have come via the CF Orr Stakes, all but one which won the race two weeks prior, including two from Peter Moody’s care – Typhoon Tracy (2010) and Moment Of Change (2014). The trainer will look to make it three from three on Saturday with four-year-old Dissident. The horse is a master over 1400m, finishing in the first two in all five of his starts, and has placed in five of his starts at Caulfield. Dissident is in great form after decisively winning the CF Orr Stakes two weeks ago, winning one and a half lengths clear of runner-up Entirely Platinum. With four Group One victories already under his belt, Dissident is well-tipped to make it five on Saturday. The only thing that could work against the horse is jumping wide from the outside gate.


#8 Suavito ($13)

Nigel Blackiston’s four-year-old mare is the market mover of the betting, seeing her price shorten to $13 from $16, which could be due to her experience over the track and distance of the race. Suavito has placed in all five of her starts at Caulfield and has run unplaced just one of seven starts over 1400m. More Joyous (2011) was the last mare to win the Futurity Stakes but Suavito is in perfect form to bring the race home for the girls. The four-year-old has finished in the first three in four of her past five starts, the only mishap being when she failed to leave the gates during the Group 2 Blazer Stakes (1400m) on October 4. She returned to winning form quickly however, taking out both the Group 3 Eliza Park International Stakes (1600m) and Group 2 Momentum Energy Stakes (2000m). Suavito will be resuming on Saturday as she jumps from barrier four with Damien Oliver but she has finished first three in all of her first-up starts.


#4 Entirely Platinum ($7)

Five-year-old gelding Entirely Platinum did well to finish runner-up to Dissident in the CF Orr Stakes last time out, beating home a range of much classier and experienced rivals. The gelding went to the front early before slowing down to a mid-race tempo. He fought back particularly well to finish one and a half lengths behind the winner. The Team Hawkes-trained gelding is set to jump from barrier six with Dwayne Dunn. He has won four of his six starts over 1400m and finished runner-up his two times at Caulfield. Entirely Platinum also has a solid second-up record, winning three of his four starts.
