2014 Group Two Bogie Leigh Futurity Final Preview

An octet of young bitches of the highest quality will grace the Albion Park circuit this Thursday night as they vie for the $40,000 winners cheque in the 2014 Group Two Bogie Leigh Futurity Final.

It is hard to remember a more even Futurity field with a unique blend of early speed and strength, meaning there is six or seven genuine chances.

Last year the event was dominated by Victorians with Purcell Bale defeating Xylia Allen. There is every chance the cash could be headed south again in 2014 with the Jeff Britton and Angela Langton team boasting three finalist.

Here is how they line up;

Comments: Peter Ruetschi (Trainer) – “She went good last week but I think she will improve tomorrow night. Hopefully she can lead, the one is the only other one that can lead I think. The box is good for her, I like her close to the rails but three is fine because she races one or two off the fence. She is well and I expect her to go good.”

Comments: Angela Langton (Trainer) – “We will need some luck in the run, she hasn’t got a lot of pace, she is a 700 metre bitch. If she can sit just behind them then she will be close enough and she is strong enough to win the race. We only took her up because she had seen the track before and we knew she would be one of the oldest bitches in the race. We are not really expecting her to win. She had a little bit of a spell and we were bringing her back and she led a couple of 500’s at Cranbourne, we just thought we have nothing to lose so why not.”

There looks to be a multitude of scenarios that could unfold in this event. The likely early speed will come from Abby’s Fantasy (1), You Can Talk (3) and possibly Oakvale Flyer (7). Should they get a clean break on the field they could make their own luck in front.

Expect the fastest qualifier Oakvale Destiny (6) to be motoring home along with stayer Tarks Nemesis (5). Their fate will rely on gaining some room in transit and getting a clean crack at them as they head for home.
