Futurity Stakes 2011 Betting & Race Tips

The first of three Group 1 showdowns highlighting the Caulfield racing action on Saturday’s Blue Diamond Stakes Day is the $500,000 Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) and below the Races.com.au let our readers in on our exclusive 2011 Futurity Stakes betting and race tips.

Set to run as Caulfield Race 5 on Saturday jumping at 3:10pm (AEDST), the 2011 Rokk Ebony Futurity Stakes final field of 10 is lead by odds-on favourite #8 More Joyous.

Hands down More Joyous is the classiest and most competitive runner in this year’s Futurity Stakes field and her short price of $1.55 at Luxbet is well deserved.

Gai Waterhouse’s stable frontrunner, four-year-old More Joyous has already won 11 of her 15 career starts including back-to-back Group 1’s during the spring taking out the George Main Stakes (1600m) at Randwick and the Toorak Handicap (1600m) at Caulfield in her Victorian race debut.

Time and time again More Joyous rises to the occasion and makes her rivals look second class as she did first-up for the season coasting to a 2 ½ length win in the Group 2 Breeders Classic (1200m) last start at Randwick on February 12.

With the ideal barrier one draw, Nash Rawiller in the mount and an imposing second-up record of three wins from four attempts, More Joyous is the one to beat.

The Races.com.au recommend not laying the favourite here, More Joyous is just too good and we are taking her no matter how short she gets.

2011 Futurity Stakes Betting – Caulfield Race 5 Tips

  • Races.com.au Favourite: #8 More Joyous – Rated Special to Win – Bet now at Luxbet
  • Best Place Bets: #1 Whobegotyou and #5 Ortensia

The punters look right on the money in the Futurity Stakes betting and to finish one-two behind More Joyous on Saturday we are following the order of the odds.

Second favourite in the market is the resuming Whobegotyou at $6.50 through Luxbet.

A proven champion in the weight-for-age arena, Mark Kavanagh’s Whobetoyou may be out wide in barrier 10 but has the tenacity to overcome this and run second.

At his two most recent starts back in the spring Whobegotyou finished third behind So You Think in both the Group 1 Yalumba Stakes (2000m) and Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m), has a stunning Caulfield record and impressive Place Rate of 80%.

Occupying the third line of Futurity Stakes betting at Luxbet is Testa Rossa mare Ortensia paying $9.50 to cause an upset.

Drawn in barrier five, Ortensia is a shoe-in for a minor placing having run third behind Typhoon Tracy at this track and distance last start in the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes.

Betting on the 2011 Futurity Stakes is really starting to heat up at our preferred online bookmaker Luxbet so our tip is to get in now and back our selections before prices shorten further!
