Our Racing Podcast team led by host Tom Stanley lay out their best bets for day 2 of the Dante Festival from York including two Matchbook sponsored races.
More open handicaps to get stuck into – both sponsored by Matchbook. The feature is the Dante and it looks a fascinating renewal with once Derby favourite High Definition lining up. The team are all against him here though…
Matchbook Betting Exchange Handicap (13:40)
Deasy and I are with the winner of this race two years ago while Steve sides with a horse who has gone very close at York before. Plenty of pace on and Rixy thinks that will suit Count D’orsay.
- Steve – Illusionist
- Deasy – Copper Knight
- Rixy – Count D’orsay / Mid Winster
- Tom – Copper Knight / Glory Fighter
Middleton Stakes (14:10)
Not the strongest betting heat for the team but Steve is with a filly at a fair price. Rixy is going for more Irish success on these shores.
- Steve – Chamade
- Deasy – No bet
- Rixy – SIlence Please
- Tom – No bet

Matchbook Betting Podcast Hambleton Handicap (14:40)
The race this podcast sponsor and Steve and I agree with a previous course and distance winner whilst Rixy is with a horse bang in form. There’s a fair shout from Deasy for one at a price too.
- Steve – Ouzo
- Deasy – Kynren / La Trinidad
- Rixy – Brunch
- Tom – Ouzo / Hartswood
Dante Stakes (15:10)
Well, we’re all against the favourite. Steve likes the Godolphin runner, I’m with Gosden’s charge and Deasy and Rixy go for an Irish raider for a man bang in form. Cue the favourite bolting up…!
- Steve – Hurricane Lane
- Deasy – Flying Visit
- Rixy – Flying Visit
- Tom – Uncle Bryn
