As well as providing early clues for next year’s Classics, the Vertem Futurity Trophy serves as the last Group 1 contest of the Flat racing season in Britain.

The juvenile race boasts an illustrious roll call of winning horses who went on to bigger and better things. A quick scan of the history books shows that three of the last five winners subsequently landed the 2000 Guineas, while four winners since 2001 went on to claim the Epsom Derby including the legendary Camelot.
