2019 Toorak Futures Tips

The Toorak Handicap has been one of the grand Spring miles for a while now with some strong winners in the feature event.

The race is run under handicap conditions and is run over 1600m, most often the next step for horses after competing in the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes over 1400m.

Stars such as Gunsynd, Umrum and more recently More Joyous have all been victorious in the event.

This year looks set to be a clash between Age Of Chivalry, Junipal and So Si Bon as they all look to head towards the 1600m event.

International Galloper Chief Ironside adds some questions to the event as we don't often see horse come to Australia with no cups aspirations.

Toorak Handicap Futures Best Bet - Chief Ironside @ $12

The Northern Hemisphere four-year-old is owned by Australian Bloodstock and has his eyes set on this race.

His pet distances are between 1600m and 2000m so under Australian racing conditions where there is often pace up front, the 1600m looks ideal.

His last run was in the Group Three Gala Stakes at Sandown (UK) where he did not look to run out a strong 2000m.

He is a natural front running galloper but does have the versatilely to settle back if he draws an average gate.

The key to this horse is that he needs to strike firm ground. On soft conditions he has shown to be a little weak, so if there is a good track, watch out.

Toorak Handicap Future Best Bet: Chief Ironside - $12 via Ladbrokes

Toorak Handicap Futures Value Bet - So Is Bon @ $12

This enigmatic gelding has suddenly come to life this preparation.

His run was good in the Sir Rupert Clarke, well beaten by Begood Toya Mother but he came home with the rest of the field.

I feel that when he gets out the mile he will be better suited as his turn of foot is only a short and, we have seen him run out the mile before.

A lot of the horses in the market ahead of him are not likely to head to the race, so I believe he will start under $10 on the day.

Toorak Handicap Future Value Bet: So Is Bon - $12 via Ladbrokes.
