Why Aidan O’Brien knows what it takes to pip the opposition in the Racing Post Trophy

Our resident Bros lookalike (ask your older sister) savours the racing this weekend and reveals why he can't look past Century in the Racing Post Trophy

by Matt Chapman | October 25, 2013

The next few weeks are some of the most exciting of the year for me. If you are a Flat fan there’s the Racing Post Trophy in the UK, then the Breeders’ Cup and Melbourne Cup just around the corner.

If you are a jumps fan, some of the big guns are beginning to rev up for some action.

I’m off to the Breeders’ Cup on Tuesday, so I really need some of Paddy’s cash this weekend for a bit of spending money! So let’s get some. You hear me, Paddy?

This year’s Racing Post Trophy is one of the most open I can remember, but the one to be on is CENTURY, trained by Ireland’s champion Aidan O’Brien.

  • The Ballydoyle genius has landed three of the last four renewals of the Group 1 contest, and Century looks just the type to provide O’Brien with another success [bet here: mobile | desktop]

The son of Montjeu impressed when landing a big field maiden on his debut at the Curragh. He’ll stay strong and the ground won’t be a problem.

O’Brien should know what it takes to pip Kingston Hill as that animal defeated his Oklahoma City last time, while Pinzolo was only a narrow victor last time. I fancy Century, a lot.

Elsewhere at Doncaster, check out STEPS in the 5f dash – he’s up 2lb for scoring at Ascot last time, but he could have a great draw and he’s fully capable of defying the extra on his back. Thoroughly consistent, acts on any ground and loves the track. Yeeehaaa!
