Futurity Stakes Tips
It’s an outstanding edition of the Futurity Stakes, with four absolute stars of the track clashing, as well as C.F. Orr Stakes (1400m) winner Streets Of Avalon.
Will one of the stars take out the 2021 Futurity Stakes, or will Streets Of Avalon pinch another Group 1 from the front of the pack?
Let’s take a look at each and every runner in the 2021 Futurity Stakes…
1 – Behemoth – $3.20 👀🏆💰
Hard to knock the current favourite, he’s a perfect two from two at this track and trip and they were both at Group 1 level in the spring when he took out the Memsie Stakes, and the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes.
If we’re being picky, Craig Williams had the galloper jumping exceptionally well from the barriers to sit handy or at least midfield in those wins, and Oliver must do the same to avoid being trapped on the fence from gate 2. Deserved favourite and must go in everything.
What a win in the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes. 🎉🎉 pic.twitter.com/zxuzG0bykJ

2 – Streets Of Avalon – $11 👀🏆💰
It’s going to be a flint dry track on Saturday due to the hot weather in Melbourne, and Streets Of Avalon maps perfectly to eyeball Crosshaven and will be enormously tough to run down. Hasn’t got the raw talent of some of these, but will give you a great look at double figures if some of the stars further back in the field find trouble in the run.
3 – Mr Quickie – $16 💰
Resumed well over 1400m last preparation to run second behind Behemoth in the Memsie Stakes, and could very well run a hole here with the on fire Jamie Kah onboard. Is running into a few very smart ones here though, and will be better over the mile deeper in his preparation.
4 – So Si Bon – $71
23 goes at Group 1 level without a win paints the picture, will be better later in the preparation over the mile or more.
5 – Too Close To The Sun – $91
Price is about right. Absolutely not.
6 – Arcadia Queen – $6.00 👀🏆💰
Arguably the best horse in the race, and showed her star power last spring when knocking off hot favourite Russian Camelot in the Caulfield Stakes. If she doesn’t get too far back she is right in this if she’s ready to go.
Uh oh. 😮

7 – Probabeel – $3.70 👀🏆💰
Was outstanding when absolutely dropping them first up in the Geoffrey Bellmaine over the 1200m, and will relish the step up to seven furlongs. If Lane can use her tactical speed and have her motoring with cover handy like in her Epsom Handicap win in the spring, she’s in this up to her eyeballs.
Class Class Class!👌Wide the trip was no issue for wonder mare Probabeel as she takes out the G3 G. Bellmaine Stakes and gives Savabeel a stakes double. She was Waikato-bred & sold to top judge David Ellis purchasing for Brendan & Jo Lindsay. Congrats to trainer @JamieRichards3🍾 pic.twitter.com/HeyOPykUh9

8 – Ole Kirk – $8.00
Was a good enough return first up in Sydney where he got a long way back, and should bounce out of that pipe opener. Barrier 1 is a worry, he may be trapped on the fence three or four pairs back, as he doesn’t have a lot of tactical speed. A great three-year-old, but this setup at Weight For Age level doesn’t appeal.
9 – Amish Boy – $34
Doesn’t look up to it. No.
10 – Crosshaven – $16 👀💰
Stuck on well enough in the C.F. Orr Stakes when resuming, and gets the blinkers on first time. We’re getting a much better price about him now and is worth throwing in exotics if you’re a fan.
👀 = Must Watch
🏆 = Big Winning Chance
💰 = Worth Including in Exotics
