Turn Me Loose finished his 2015 Spring Racing Carnival with three straight wins in the Listed Seymour Cup (1600m), Group 2 Crystal Mile (16000m) and Group 1 Emirates Stakes (1600m) and he lost no admirers when he finished a gallant fourth in the Group 1 Ladbrokes Orr Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on February 13.

The Iffraaj entire has an excellent second-up record and he is set to receive a much softer run in front in the Futurity Stakes than he did in the Ladbrokes Orr Stakes.

Suavito finished over the top of Turn Me Loose to win the Ladbrokes Orr Stakes and the talented mare is on the second line of Futurity Stakes betting markets at a quote of $6.50.

Suavito had not been seen at the races since she finished seventh behind Kermadec in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) in April last year, but she was still able to produce an outstanding effort and trainer Nigel Blackiston is confident that she will improve in the Futurity Stakes.

Hucklebuck produced arguably the run of the race in the Orr Stakes and he is on the third line of Futurity Stakes betting.

The son of Elvstroem was caught wide in the early stages of the Ladbrokes Orr Stakes and he was still able to make up ground late, with the Group 1 winner set to receive a much cruisy run in transit when he jumps from barrier four.

One horse that is set to take winning form into the Futurity Stakes is Politeness, who is priced at $8.50 to claim her second win at Group 1 level.

Politeness proved that she was capable of mixing it with the boys when she finished second behind Turn Me Loose in the Emirates and she returned to the races with a more than credible in the Group 2 Rubiton Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield on February 13.

The only other horse that is available at single figure 2016 Futurity Stakes odds is Boban, who is priced at $8.50 to return to winning form this weekend.

Boban finished a credible sixth in the Ladbrokes Orr Stakes and he is set to reunite with regular hoop Glyn Schofield, who has previously steered him to victory at Group 1 level on five occasions.

There has been plenty of early support in the 2016 Futurity Stakes betting with Ladbrokes for the Darren Weir-trained duo of Stratum Star ($16 into $12) and Trust In A Gust ($15 into $13), while the likes of Rebel Dane ($13 out to $17), Scissor Kick ($17 out to $18) and The United States ($31 out to $34) are on the drift.
