Vertem Futurity Stakes Guide

1. Cherokee Trial

Trainer - John Gosden

Jockey - Kieran O'Neill

John Gosden has two runners in the rescheduled Group One at Newcastle on Friday and the first is this colt who has raced three times during his career all to a fair standard.

He won on his first two starts in Class 4 contests at Ascot and Newbury of super quick ground and then when stepped up in trip and class to a Group Three he flopped in the Autumn Stakes.

The soft ground may have been the undoing of him that day and it looks a concern him having his all weather debut in this sphere, opposable.

2. Geometrical

Trainer - Jim Bolger

Jockey - Kevin Manning

Jim Bolger has entered his horse Geometrical who looks one of the most experienced runners in the field running six times this season over in Ireland.

Soft, tricky conditions seems to be his best ground and that suggests he may take to the all weather quite nicely but having only won one of his six contests and struggling when stepping up in trip makes him vulnerable in the field.

3. Innisfree

Trainer - Aidan O'Brien

Jockey - Seamie Heffernan

One of the big chances from Ireland having three races to date finishing second on debut but landing his last two contests in smart style and also has a huge improving pedigree.

He got off the mark at Galway on good ground in a maiden but stepped up massively last time out when landing the Group Two Beresford Stakes in Heavy conditions.

Japan won that last year for O'Brien and he turned out to be one of the superstar horses and it would not be a surprise to see him take this contest if handling the all weather.

4. Kameko

Trainer - Andrew Balding

Jockey - Oisin Murphy

The only runner from Britain is Kameko and this two year old has shown smart form on his three starts to date and was unlucky last time out to not land the Group Two Royal Lodge Stakes at Newmarket.

He got off the mark on debut at Sandown in a Class 4 and then finished a superb second over the same course and distance in the Group Three Solario Stakes.

Last time out he was unlucky but now on the all weather which his owner thinks will suit him more than Doncaster would of he could have a say.

5. King Of The Throne

Trainer - Emmet Mullins

Jockey -

Emmet Mullins is a trainer not many punters would have heard of and in the Group One he fields King Of The Throne who cost $60,000 as a yearling and has only had two starts.

He is yet to break his duck and has some serious form to overturn finishing behind Mogul on his debut at the Curragh and then running poorly in a weaker maiden.

The colt needs to massively improve on his first try on the all weather and if not doing so could be very much outclassed.

6. Kinross

Trainer - Ralph Beckett

Jockey - Harry Bentley

This two year old colt has only raced once during his career but got off the mark at Newmarket in taking style beating 15 runners which included some already proven winners.

That form has since been franked with the Godolphin horse that was second that day since going on to win and if handling the all weather this son of Kingman could be interesting.

He is one of Beckett's best juveniles in his yard from the way he landed his debut race and with the form this trainer is in at the end of the season there is certainly a lot to like about Kinross.

7. Mogul

Trainer - Aidan O'Brien

Jockey - Donnacha O'Brien

The favourite on the day is the expensive Mogul and this 3,400,000 Guineas purchase looks a class above the rest in this field having won his last two events in taking style.

He made is debut back in August finishing second but looked like he needed the experience for the run more than anything and from there has massively improved.

He scored at the Curragh next time out in a Maiden and then last time out at Leopardstown took the Group Two Champions Juvenile Stakes which is he best form heading into the contest.

8. New World Tapestry

Trainer - Aidan O'Brien

Jockey -

The third of the five runners on show for Aidan O'Brien on Friday is this two year old who finally got off the mark last time at Newmarket in a decent maiden.

Before that he had ran twice in maidens behind some smart stablemates with Group Two Coventry Stakes winner Arizona and Group Two Futurity Stakes winner Armory being the winners of those contests.

He looks overall to be a really smart son of War Front that will have to improve for his latest win but looks to be progressive enough to be in the frame.

9. Royal County Down

Trainer - Aidan O'Brien

Jockey - Ben Curtis

The fourth colt from the Ballydoyle yard is another the big outsider of the field finishing five lengths behind Mogul last time out which looks to much to make up.

He is also the lowest entry on ratings having to make up 16 pounds on the favourite which really should put him out of contention but O'Brien is known for having big outside winners and he is still respected.

10. Tammani

Trainer - William Haggas

Jockey - Ben Curtis

Another horse low down on the ratings is Tammani for William Haggas who has ran to a fair standard in less Listed events winning at Deauville and finishing a nice third at Haydock.

Both of these runs came on soft/heavy ground and like many of these runners he is having his all weather debut which could bring even more out of him but it needs to in this class and he looks vulnerable if not improving.

11. Verboten

Trainer - John Gosden

Jockey - Robert Havlin

Gosden's second juvenile is this colt that is very much an unknown entity to many racing fans with the Godolphin two year old only racing once at Yarmouth and getting off the mark in nice style.

The youngster was very expensive as a youngster being bought for €82,000 as a foal and then a further €350,000 as a yearling being related to some smart horses being a son of No Nay Never.

He could turn out to be anything and may be better as a three year old but looks to hold plenty of potential and could be interesting.

12. Year Of The Tiger

Trainer - Aidan O'Brien

Jockey -

The final runner of the Group One contest is the fifth chance in the race for the Ballydoyle maestro and this son of Galileo will have to perform a miracle to win this.

He is arguably the worst from his stable and has constantly run in defeat albeit behind some nice horses but still nowhere near them to compete on the same level.

All weather is an unknown and should be a big price.
