Futurity Trophy Odds: Luxembourg tops field of 15

The Futurity Stakes is known for producing future stars.
The Futurity Stakes is known for producing future stars.

The final Group 1 of the season is nearly here, with 15 still in to take their chances following the five day declaration stage...

The flat season is all but over now Champions Day is behind us, but there is still one more Group 1 score to settle with the Vertem Futurity Trophy, a race where stars of the next year get to strut their stuff for one final time.

As always, Aidan O’Brien has a plethora of classy two-year-olds that he will hope to bag classic success in 2022, and it’s his charge Luxembourg that heads the market at 6/4 following the five day declarations.

Unbeaten in two starts, he was last seen running out a cosy winner in the Group 2 Beresford Stakes at The Curragh and under the guidance of the maestro O’Brien, he really could be anything. He won’t be the only representative for the Ballydoyle based trainer however as he is responsible for a third of all the current entries, with Glounthaune, Aikhal, Stone Age, and Howth also being left in at the five day stage. Neither quite have the form or backing of the market like Luxembourg however, with Glounthane currently 20/1 and the remaining three above 33/1.

Mark Johnston has had a pretty exciting season with Royal Patronage, who has gone from strength to strength since his debut 5th at York, the colt now coming into this race off the back of a three win streak, the latter two being at Group 3 and Group 2 level respectively. He was latterly seen beating the well regarded Coroebus in the Royal Lodge Stakes so a shot at this race is well warranted, and he is currently trading as the general 11/2 second-favourite ahead of Ralph Beckett’s Angel Bleu, a horse with plenty of miles under his belt after a busy first season.

Heading into what will be his eighth race this year, he has scooped major honours this season with both a Group 1 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere lately and a Group 2 Vintage Stakes, reversing the form with Berskhire Shadow who easily had his measure in the Coventry Stakes at the Royal Meeting. The only Group 1 winner in the field, he’s currently around 13/2 to make it back-to-back Group 1s and go into the winter as the top two-year-old.

Roger Varian’s Bayside Boy completes the sub 10/1 runners, looking to return to the winners enclosure after a more than impressive third in the Dewhurst Stakes recently, with Andrew Balding’s Imperial Fighter also teetering on the edge of a single-figure price after back-to-back second place finishes at Group 3 level recently. He won’t be the only Balding runner either, with Hoo Ya Mal also entered and trading at around the 20/1 area after a Listed second last time out.

The challengers further down the field are mainly all from the other side of the Irish Sea, with both the younger O’Brien’s - Donnacha and Joseph - sending Sissoko and Buckaroo, trading at 20/1 and 25/1 respectively.

Jim Bolger has had a brilliant season with his three-year-olds thanks to the likes of Poetic Flare and Mac Swiney, and will be hoping for another like them in the form of Mctigue, who is twiced raised and is certainly one to watch at a huge price of 40/1.

The market is completed by the Brian Meehan trained Hannibal Barca and the Karl Burke trained Bullet Force, 50/1 and 100/1 respectively and both with plenty to find on their best form, though both are winners at Class 4 level.
