2021 Vertem Futurity Trophy Betting Trends and Tips

Vertem Futurity Trophy Betting Tips


The Vertem Futurity Trophy is staged each year at Doncaster racecourse and is for 2 year-olds only.

The Group One race is run over a distance of 1m and is an excellent guide and trial to the following year’s Classics, in particular the 2,000 Guineas and Epsom Derby – backed up in recent years with High Chaparral, Motivator, Authorized and, most-recently, Camelot all winning the Vertem Futurity Trophy before going onto take the Epsom Derby the next season, while recent winners – Saxon Warrior, Magna Grecia and Kameko – went onto land the 2,000 Guineas the following season.

Jockey Andrea Atzeni has also been having a cracking time in the race in recent years – winning it 4 times in the last 8 years, while trainer Aidan O’Brien has won the race 9 times.

Here at JUICESTORM we take a look back at recent winners and highlights the key stats ahead of the 2021 renewal – this year run on Saturday 23rd October.

JUICESTORM VERDICT: A race the Aidan O’Brien yard have farmed in recent years – winning the prize a staggering nine times. With that in mind, their LUXEMBOURG is the call here to make it win number 10 in this end-of-season Group One. The vibes coming out of the Ballydoyle camp are strong for this juvenile, who heads here 2-from-2 after easy wins at Killarney and the Curragh. The last of those was a smooth 4 ¾ length success in a G2 over a mile so it might take a good performance from one of the others to stop him remaining unbeaten. Of the rest, the Johnston runner – Royal Patronage – continues to improve and heads here having won the G3 and G2 Acomb and Royal Lodge Stakes. He’s a bold front runner, but you feel that he might just be setting the race up for something with a bit more stamina. Bayside Boy and Imperial Fighter are others to respect, but it’s interesting the Donnacha O’Brien yard, from Ireland, also send over SISSOKO (e/w). This 2 year-old was a nice 6l winner at the Curragh last time out over a bit further and that proven stamina will be a plus in what could turn out to be testing conditions.
