Crowded House the 11/8 favourite for the totesport.com Dante
Crowded House has been installed as the 11/8 favourite by the sponsors for the totesport.com Dante Stakes at York next Thursday.
Brian Meehan's colt won the Racing Post Trophy on his final start as a two year-old and was the winter favourite for the Investec Derby before being usurped at the head of the market by Sea The Stars last weekend.
Both Godolphin and Coolmore have been successful in the race before and are responsible for two promising typesin the shape of Kite Wood and Freemantle at 5/1 and 7/1 respectively. Redwood splits this pair in the market at 13/2.
'Crowded House has been at the forefront of the Derby betting ever since his Racing Post Trophy victory and fully deserves his place at the head of the market for the totesport.com Dante,' said totesport spokesman George Primarolo.
'However, there are a couple of unexposed sorts in the field and it wouldn't be a huge surprise to see something well backed in the run up to the race.'
Elsewhere, South Easter has been cut to 40/1 (from 50/1) for the Derby following his narrow victory in the Addleshaw Goddard Dee Stakes at Chester this afternoon.
