With almost £100,000 going to the winner, it’s no surprise that the Two-Year-Old Trophy race is massively oversubscribed most years. That kind of money is a big deal to northern owners and trainers and uncommon at tracks like Redcar. However, the 16 runners this year is not a maximum field with some frightened off by the prospect of soft going.

Two-Year-Old Trophy History and Trends – Not a race for outsiders?

The Racing UK Two-Year-Old Trophy is one of the most valuable races in Europe for juveniles. Contested over a distance just short of 6f at Redcar, it is worth almost £100,000 to the winner and was first staged back in 1989.

Won in the past by top-class sprinters such as Somnus, Captain Rio, Pipalong, Peak To Creek and Misu Bond, the 2008 winner Total Gallery went on to land the Group 1 Prix de l’Abbaye at Longchamp with the 2014 winner Limato going on to glory in the July Cup in 2016.

Tim Easterby has trained the winner on four occasions, most recently in 2013. Richard Fahey finally won the race in 2017 and the Musley Bank handler has three entered this year including the short-priced favourite.

  • None of the last 12 winners have been drawn higher than stall 17. The stalls are in the centre of the track this year but only 18 are entered.
  • Only one of the last 10 winners has started at bigger odds than 12/1.
  • Just one of the last 10 winners has carried more than 8st 12lb so it’s still rewarding those trainers with an eye for a bargain regarding purchase price (the weights are framed with regards to a sire’s stock value as well as previous form).
  • Only five fillies have won since 2002.

Summer Sands carries just 8-3 and a strict interpretation of her run in last week’s Cheveley Park Stakes suggests she is thrown in at the weights. But that run, just seven days ago, was so much better than what had gone before that you can’t help thinking it may have been a bit of freak result. However, she would have still have a good chance on previous form, though she has drifted from odds-on to odds against and is now 11/8 with William Hill.

Troubador was unlucky not to complete a four-timer at York and has already won over 6f at Redcar. He is a best 6/1 with William Hill but may not want the ground to be too testing.

Desert Safari is so far unbeaten but Mark Johnston may have a better chance of landing the spoils with Praxeology, already three times a winner this season including on soft going. The latter can backed at 16/1 in places.

Know No Limits is tough and 22/1 with some bookmakers but both of her victories so far have come at Chester.

GLASVEGAS looks overpriced at 16/1 with Unibet. A winner twice at Hamilton this summer, the Zebedee colt was also an excellent third on soft going in the Windsor Castle at Royal Ascot when finishing ahead of Summer Sands. It’s true that he is 6lb worse off at the weights but he would have gone very close to winning that Listed contest had he not been hampered inside the final furlong. Keith Dalgleish’s stable won this valuable prize last year and will have high hopes of a double.
