Derby trio to up ante in Dante!
The Dante Stakes at York is set to be a truly sensational renewal featuring three hot Investec Derby market principles vying for favouritism in the Knavesmire highlight.
William Hill cannot seperate World Dominination and Seville, installing them at both 7-4, with the latter being the subject of consistent support throughout the week having been available at as big as 3-1 when betting opened.
The Queen's Carlton House, who represents last year's Derby-winning stable of Sir Michael Stoute, is next in the betting at 5-2.
Yaseer (14-1), Pisco Sour (33-1) and Ashva (100-1) complete the line-up.
William Hill spokeswoman Lucy Rhodes said, ‘With a host of premier Derby contenders set to line up, this year's Dante could prove to be a truly vintage renewal, and there is no doubt that whoever is victorious on the Knavesmire will emerge as clear favourite for the Epsom Classic in less than three weeks.'
