The end of the flat season is upon us as we look to Doncaster and the Racing Post Trophy! The 52nd year of the event brings only seven two year olds in what promises to be a very competitive race.
Aidan O’Brien will be hoping to emulate Camelot’s success last year with the favourite in the field – Kingsbarns. The colt is going into the group 1 race with general odds of 2-1 and is already being placed at around 14-1 for next years Investec Derby.
Following Kingsbarns in the betting order is Trading Leather another Irish trained colt who won at Newmarket earlier in the month in the Group 3 Autumn Stakes. Jim Bolger’s colt is just ahead of the Mark Johnston trained Steeler, who won the Group 2 Royal Lodge a few weeks ago along with two other victories this season.
Richard Hannon’s Van Der Neer is placed around 13-2 with two wins since September including the recent Leicester conditions contest.
The remaining horses in the field are Andrew Oliver’s First Cornerstone, David Simcock’s Birdman and Harry Dunlop’s Sir Patrick Moore.
