2021 Futurity Stakes Tips


Futurity Stakes 2021 Best Bet - Arcadia Queen

Purely based on a price perspective, this mare wins if she gets anywhere near her rating from the Theo Mark Stakes of two Springs ago.

We know Arcadia Queen had hoof issues early last campaign, but that has been resolved and importantly she has a turn-of-foot over these trips, which will come in handy on a slow or fast speed.

The daughter of Pierro looked sharp in a WA trial and does look set to run a big race in this, seeing as she was arguably the best performed horse over the Melbourne Spring Carnival.


Futurity Stakes 2021 Next Best Bet - Behemoth

He is the map horse of the race and is the one that only needs a split to be looking the winner.

My only issue with him is that he has drawn two and although things may pan out as they did in the Memsie last year, outside of Streets Of Avalon, he does not really have a horse to take him into the race while some of the stars are out the back building their momentum.

Behemoth is the deserved favourite based off of his Caulfield Group One 1400m form and his recent win, but things may look a little stressful if he does not find galloping room around the bend.


Futurity Stakes 2021 Value Bet - Streets Of Avalon

He proved last start in the CF Orr that he is more genuine than most have him credit for at this level, leading a smart field a merry dance.

There is no question that this race is the next level compared to what Streets Of Avalon faced last start, but he did win this last year and looks the likely leader.

His 1400m Caulfield form is immaculate so once again, he is the one they need to run down and is a double figure price.
