Multi-million dollar colt All Too Hard looks to have a mortgage on next week’s Australian Guineas after scoring the easiest of wins in the Group 1 $500,000 Cathay Pacific Futurity Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield.

All Too Hard made a one acted affair as jockey Dwayne Dunn scored his third winner for the day with an armchair ride on the glamour three year old.

The Casino Prince three year old made it two weight for age wins from two starts this campaign and Wayne Hawkes for Team Hawkes said that All Too Hard was ninety-nine per cent sure of backing up next week at Flemington.

“He’ll be ninety-nine per cent sure of running ,” Hawkes said.

“He was much more focused today. The other day pre-race he was out the back stuffing around a little bit.”

“The best part about today was that it was very very hot here in Melbourne and he paraded exceptionally well. Colts can get a bit hot but he was pretty relaxed.”

Today’s win was arguably All Too Hard’s most professional from the time he went to the barrier, the way he jumped and was actually first to leave the gates and the way he accelerated in the straight is frightening for his opposition in the future.

“He began really brilliantly today, that’s the best he’s left the machines. Our pre-race was if we could land fourth it would be perfect,” Dunn said.

After jumping so well, Dunn eventually eased All Too Hard into a lovely spot, one off the fence in fifth place, and after easing him out on the home turn had a clear run down the straight to win as he liked.

All Too Hard started the $1.90 favourite and made it look easy, scoring by three and a half length from Glass Harmonium ($18) and King Mufhasa ($5.50).

Melbourne Cup winner Green Moon ran a good race first up winding up in fourth spot after having a checked run down the straight.

    Whats up this is kinda of off topic but I was
    wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have
    to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
