Mackinnon Stakes Futures Best Bet - Kings Will Dream @ $12

He ran a very credible sixth in the Cox Plate in what was a race run not suit him.

Coming back to Flemington and staying at the 2000m looks ideal.

We see a lot of horses in the market ahead of him will likely not run in the race, so these odds are probably double what he would start on the day.

That Cox Plate run showed that he is holding his form and, he will only need to hold for one more run to possibly put a second Group One to his name.

Mackinnnon Stakes Futures Value Bet: Harlem @ $31

Harlem finished just one length off of Kings Will Dream in the Cox Plate on a track that does not suit his style of running.

He is a two-time Australian Cup winner, a race run over the same distance and conditions as the Mackinnon Stakes.

When he draws soft, he runs fantastic races, so if he can draw from barrier one to five in the Mackinnon, he is one that needs to be included in everyone's multiples.
