Dante Festival Day 1 Tipping Cheat Sheet

3 min

Our Racing Podcast team were on fire last weekend with lots of big priced winners. Needless to say, they’re hoping to repeat the trick for the opening day of the Dante Festival from York!

The midweek fun continues, and the Classic trials keep coming. The Dante meeting provides a fantastic mixture of Group heats and big field handicaps. Hopefully, the big priced winners from last week keep flowing on the podcast, particularly with Matchbook sponsoring two of the races on Thursday.

Jorvik Handicap (13:40)

Tough place to start, but a future Group horse wins this and Steve, and I think Ilaraab fits that bill. A few others are going up at reasonable prices too.

  • Steve – Ilaraab
  • Deasy – Ryhmic Intent / My Frankel
  • Rixy – Throne Hall
  • Tom – Ilaraab / Mr Carpenter

6f Handicap (14:10)

Deasy and Rixy like the look of Manigordo here in a very tricky contest. My best bet of the day lines up (win and place), and he seems a horse that’s best fresh.

  • Steve – Aberama Gold
  • Deasy – Manigordo
  • Rixy – Hey Jonesy / Manigordo
  • Tom – Gulliver / Roulston Scar BEST BET

Duke Of York Stakes (14:40)

Steve and Deasy going head-to-head with their best bets. Rixy fancies Starman could be the best of them and also saves a bet for if the ground comes up soft.

  • Steve – Art Power BEST BET
  • Deasy – Nahaarr BEST BET / Final Song
  • Rixy – Starman / Molatham if soft
  • Tom – Art Power

Musidora Stakes (15:10)

I’m sitting this one out, but Rixy saves his best bet here for Auria the place market. Steve and Deasy are focussing on the pair at the top of the market.

  • Steve – Noon Star
  • Deasy – Teona
  • Rixy – Auria place BEST BET
  • Tom – No bet
