Heading the early betting markets is Dhabab for the Gosden’s and Frankie Dettori.
The 2 year old son of No Nay Never was last seen at Royal Ascot in the Coventry Stakes. Well backed until post time, he was sent off the 4/1 favourite but some trouble in running saw him only manage 6th place.
He made significant late headway when he saw daylight and surely would have gotten a lot closer had he had a clear run.
A smaller field here hopefully means he won’t have the same traffic problems and the bookies are already ducking for cover as Dettori takes over in the saddle.
Only tested over 6 furlongs to date, he powered home up Ascot’s stiff finish in the Coventry, the new further trip should unlock some more improvement.
