With the likelihood of a soft run on speed, plus the good record of three year olds in the race, Showtime has been the best backed to take out the Futurity Stakes (1400m) this Saturday at Caulfield via the Sportsbet.com.au market.
The Team Hawkes trained youngster resumed in the Expressway where he did a very good job against the tempo/bias when second to Trapeze Artist. He is likely to get over here and sit up outside Lord Of The Sky ($12 – $13 – $12) and punters think he can get the job done, backing him into $7.00 after opening $11.
Favourite for the race is Brave Smash, who was one of many hard luck stories in the CF Orr. He was $3.40 but is now out to $3.50 with the support for Tosen Stardom and Showtime.
