Which Horse Will Win The Furious Stakes
The best way to pick who will win the Furious Stakes is to take into account the form, assess the barriers, consider the weight the horse will carry, among other factors.
Additional factors to take into considerations are as follows:
- Local Fillies – Sydney-trained fillies have a sensational record in the race.
- Best Lead Up – The Silver Shadow Stakes is the one to watch. Any fillies that graduate in top form in that race should also do well in the Furious Stakes. Libertini (2019) followed by Dame Giselle (2020) are the latest fillies to win the Silver Shadow – Furious Stakes double.
Furious Stakes Favourites
Early favourites in Furious Stakes betting 2020 include Chris Waller’s returning Group 2 Sweet Embrace winner Hungry Heart and the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Dame Giselle coming off a first-up win in the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes.
Libertini ($1.18 in 2019) followed the next year by Dame Giselle ($3.80 in 2020) are the last Furious Stakes favourites to salute in the race, both having come off a lead-up win in the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes a fortnight earlier.
Furious Stakes 2020 Field
The 2020 Furious Stakes field of final acceptances is announced on the Wednesday of race week and will be available in full here.
