Dante 8 includes big guns
All set for a real acid test for the Derby contenders this week at York as the Dante declarations this morning left eight remaining, including the top three in the ante post market for Epsom all set to line up amongst the field.
Ante post fav Jack Hobbs will bid to step up against proven Group performers and cement his claim as the most exciting and potentially the best of the middle distance three year old colts this year. John Gosden saddles his star plus also intends to run Fielden winner and still unbeaten Golden Horn in the trial.
John F Kennedy will bid to rebuild his reputation for Aidan O’Brien after defeat on his return this season and similar comments apply to his other entry Ol’ Man River and Thursday afternoon will reveal a lot more about the master of Ballydoyle’s hand this year.
Elm Park, winner of the Racing Post Trophy missed the 2000 Guineas but looks set to line up here ahead of Epsom and Andrew Balding will be looking forward to testing last years star against the best this term and should he be succesful this week will surely head the market for the Classic with an ideal profile.
Nafaqa will run for Barry Hills after missing the Dee at Chester whilst Medrano who ran at the Roodee finishing third in the Vase and Karl Burke’s well regarded Lord Ben Stack make up the magic eight.
