Dante Hero Septimus On Derby Trail
Septimus justified favouritism when running out the impressive winner of the totesport Dante at York. The Aidan O'Brien trained three year old looked the likely winner from the halfway mark before taking command inside the final three furlongs and going on to score by eight lengths. The run certainly caught the eye of bookmakers William Hill who promoted Septimus to 5-1 second favourite (from 12) for the Vodafone Derby.
At Salisbury Henry Cecil's Novellara impressed, when beating Dayrose and Jewaar, earning her a 33-1 quote (from 50) for the Vodafone Oaks.
