Furphy Trophy 2024 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Bold Bastille comes up favourite. Pulled up with issues last run and can atone in this. Looks well placed from barrier 1. Drifting has good upside and won well last start with no favours in the run. Always Enuff is a market watch on debut. Lovers Forever also is in the same boat and has the Ellerton Lane combination.

Furphy Trophy 2024 Runner by Runner

1. Bold Bastille (1)

Had excuses last start and can bounce back here. Go off the debut win prior and it looks very hard to beat. Deserving favourite.

2. Sky Cap (7)

Sound second but finds a decent rise in grade. Place chance.

3. Merchant Of Cool (10)  – scratched

4. Raging (3)

Solid jump out but tough draw and tough race on debut. Keep an eye on the market.

5. Drifting (9)

Logical danger to the favourite. Had no luck on debut and still won well. Kah steers and gets in lighter than the favourite. Level of progression free the debut run is the key to its chances.

6. Always Enuff (8)

Has been well respected in early markets and the jumpouts have been impressive.

7. Grinzinger Love (11)

Solid jump out but the draw makes things hard. Barrier 11 won’t be easy but Willo steers.

8. High Flyin’ Rosie (4)

Can’t have.

9. La Bella Bondi (5)

Prefer others.

10. Lady Alabama (12)  – scratched

11. Lovers Forever (2)

Solid jump out and maps well. Respect any market moves on race day.

12. Toroness (13)

Prefer others.

13. Zetalyn (6)

Can’t have.
