Futurity Stakes 2024 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Mr Brightside looks the winner. He has been in incredible form and this race looks easier. Buffalo River got close to him last run and must be respected off that. Attrition has 2 lengths to find on the favourite and can’t see the rest troubling.

Futurity Stakes 2024 Runner by Runner

1. Mr Brightside (5)

Massive win last start and hard to see any of these beating him. Maps for a good run and he looks a class above. Should win.

2. Pericles (1)

Should be hard to hold out up to the 1400 but needs to find a few lengths to be beating the favourite. Place hope with barrier 1 and Kah aboard.

3. Munhamek (4)

Can’t have.

4. Dom To Shoot (6)

Prefer others.

5. Nugget (2)

Classy runner but may want further. Can run into the placings with even luck from barrier 2.

6. Buffalo River (7)

Gave a huge kick last run and looks a big chance to give this a shake. Logical threat to Mr Brightside but would need to be able to pinch it out in front.

7. Attrition (8)

Classy runner who I have plenty of time for. Has a few lengths to find on Mr Brightside from when they last met. Place chance.

8. Hey Fat Cat (3)

Can’t have.
