2023 Futurity Trophy Stakes Betting Odds at Doncaster racecourse

Saturday, 28 October 2023

Diego Velazquez has secured back to back wins heading into the Kameko Futurity Trophy Stakes and the two-year-old might well be sent off favourite to win this one mile encounter. Aidan O’Brien saddles a runner who looks to be Group 1 material, although Ancient Wisdom has scored three victories in the four performances enjoyed to date.

Charlie Appleby will have high hopes for his charge considering that William Buick is in the saddle, with Dancing Gemini trading at a bigger price and Roger Teal certainly has a claim with a runner who has landed back to back victories. Capulet and God’s Widow are other contenders for a race which is likely to include a number of outsiders.

2023 Futurity Trophy Stakes Tips

Diego Velazquez has scored at the Curragh and Leopardstown already this season, with Aidan O’Brien saddling a horse that began his career with a victory in the Bord Na Mona Recycling Irish EBF Maiden. Maybe it was no surprise that the runner was able to score as the 2/5 favourite, although there was a further success in a Juvenile Stakes race at Leopardstown.

Ancient Wisdom looks to have similarly solid credentials, with the horse able to achieve three victories in a short career to date. The latest performance saw the runner oblige in the Emirates Autumn Stakes, with the two-year-old scoring by nearly four lengths. Previously to this, the horse could only finish third in the Pat Eddery Stakes over seven furlongs.

Dancing Gemini could be worth considering as a bet to nothing from an each-way point-of-view, with the horse able to oblige in the Betfred Flying Scotsman Stakes. Sent off at odds of 5/1, the Roger Teal-trained runner claimed a comfortable win. This came after a Maiden Stakes win at Newbury in the middle of August.

Beyond the front three in the betting, it would be a surprise if we saw another horse claim a victory, although Capulet and God’s Window are trading at around the 10/1 mark at the time of writing. The former was third in the Juddmonte Royal Lodge Stakes when sent off as the 7/4 favourite, while the latter won on his debut at Doncaster.
