Five potential classic winning two-year-old horses to follow this autumn

Aidan O'Brien Will Run A Number Of Young Horses This Autumn

The autumn is always a special time of the flat season as we get to run the rule over the potential classic generation for the following year and we can expect a host of excellent races to follow in the coming weeks and months.

This is the time of the year were the best trainers and owners in the business look for their two-year-old horses to put their talents on display and there is no doubt that the bookmakers will be watching closely as they chalk up their ante-post prices for the Guineas in May and beyond.

It can be a difficult time of the year for punters with the key juvenile races coming thick and fast on both sides of the Irish Sea with the Middle Park, Dewhurst, National Stakes and Beresford just four contests to keep a close eye on.

We have picked out five potential superstar two-year-old horses to follow this autumn...

Mums Tipple

We will start with an easy one with Mums Tipple one of the most talked about young horses in training at the moment and the Richard Hannon horse needs to be watched closely this autumn as a result. The Footstepsinthesand colt produced a remarkable performance at York to win by 11 lengths last time out to mark himself out as a potential superstar and he has multiple entries in races like the Mill Reef and Middle Park this September so be sure to watch his next run closely.

Palace Pier

A John Gosden trained son of Kingman is always to be taken seriously and that is certainly the case with Palace Pier who is a horse with bundles of talent. Owned by Sheikh Hamdan, the two-year-old was an excellent winner of a maiden at Sandown on his only start to date and that was the sign of a potential star of the future. The Dewhurst Stakes has been mentioned as a possible target for the Gosden in-mate and he will certainly start a short price for that contest if he does indeed turn up at Newmarket next month.


It is always difficult to pick out the best of the Ballydoyle colts each season but at this stage we are going to take a chance on the exciting Armory. The son of Galileo has already had four starts, winning his last three, and looks set to take high order in at least one race over the next month or so. An excellent performance in the Futurity Stakes at the Curragh last time out was certainly eye-catching from Armory and quotes of 12/1 for the 2000 Guineas at this stage highlight the regard he is held in.

Cayenne Pepper

Jessica Harrington has enjoyed great success under both codes over the past five years and in Cayenne Pepper she may well have another star of the flat on her hands. The daughter of Australia is already being touted as a potential Oaks filly in 2020 in the wake of her Group 3 win last time out at the Curragh and she could have another chance to show off her talents this autumn with the Moyglare Stud Stakes and the Fillies Mile at Newmarket the two obvious options.


Godolphin and Charlie Appleby have enjoyed a stunning 2019 with Pinatubo and there are high hopes that the Shamardal colt could be something special. Four wins from four have certainly made people sit up and take notice, especially his five length victory in the Vintage Stakes last time out, and a run this autumn in a race like the Champagne Stakes or the Dewhurst would certainly be an event to watch.
