Vertem Futurity Stakes betting preview: Is the Group 1 at Doncaster an Aidan O'Brien benefit?

SIX are set to go to post for Saturday's Vertem Futurity Stakes – with Aidan O'Brien responsible for five.

Will the Irish maestro land the odds, or will Andrew Balding's Kameko spoil the party?

1. IBERIA – Aidan O'Brien/Andrea Atzeni

Aidan O'Brien's first runner is likely making up the numbers.

He finished a decent enough second in the Killavullan Stakes last time but needs a fair bit more on that form and it was disappointing he wasn't able to win.

Andrea Atzeni is the king of this race but even he'll need a bit of magic up his sleeve to see this one home in front.

2. INNISFREE – Aidan O'Brien/Seamie Heffernan

Progressive two-year-old is still very babyish but demonstrated a fine attitude to see off Shekhem in that Group 2 last time out.

It's widely agreed that he'll be better next year but he nevertheless has plenty of form to suggest he's capable of lifting this prize.

Plenty of Beresford winners have gone on to glory here and he's not underestimated, for all that Mogul looks the stable's main hope.
