Caulfield Race 6: Italktravel Futurity Stakes 1400m

26/02/2016: Beating Bow Creek in the Schweppes Crystal Mile, when that horse was a fraction unlucky, and defeating Politeness by a slender margin in the Emirates Stakes didn't convince me to have Turn Me Loose in my first four first up in the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes. However, it was a ripper run from a horse one start below maximum fitness level and this week I am in his corner. He is going to receive an A+ run in transit (I really hope they allow Entirely Platinum to lead). If Hucklebuck was a horse who raced a length or so closer early in a race he would be my A selection, just. His runs in both the Group 1 Australia Stakes and CF Orr Stakes, coming off a massive 252 days break, were excellent and with a clear run watch out. Suavito has clearly stepped into the list of genuine Group 1 horses with two honest victories at that level and why not again? In both runs this campaign Trust In A Gust has been caught wide and from barrier ten it may happen again but he is tough and a win is on the cards soon. Boban is a freak of a racehorse. Just when many punters started to wonder if he still had the winning feeling... bang, he went with wins at Group 1 level in the Doomben 10000 and Memsie Stakes. He is never to be underestimated.

Caulfield Race 6. Track Condition: GOOD (3). Weather: FINE. RaceTime: AEDT 16:05, 27/02/2016

Front Runners (7) Entirely Platinum, (9) Turn Me Loose.
On Pacers (3) Suavito, (4) Hucklebuck, (10) Trust In A Gust.
Mid Fielders (2) Boban, (5) Stratum Star, (6) Scissor Kick, (8) Rebel Dane.
Get Back (1) Politeness, (11) The United States.
PACE COMMENTS There's no problem working out the leaders as either Entirely Platinum will lead on his own by a length or so with Turn Me Loose sitting on his girth or Turn Me Loose will surge forward hard and fast. The best option is for Turn Me Loose to allow Entirely Platinum to lead. Either way it means the on pacers and mid fielders will be able to slot into their preferred positions early in the race and if good enough win. The horse (mare) with the real problem is Politeness who will need to be Black Caviar to win from the rear.
