Dante Festival Day 2 Tipping Cheat Sheet

3 min

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
