Advertise to tempt market
ADVERTISE could prove the value call in an intriguing renewal of the Darley Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket.
Much of the pre-race chat has focused on red-hot favourite Too Darn Hot and it is not difficult to see why.
A son of Dubawi out of the topclass racemare Dar Re Mi, the youngster has so far lived up to his regal breeding by registering three consecutive victories in impressive style.
Successive wins at Sandown were followed by a dominant display in the Champagne Stakes at Doncaster and, given he represents the formidable combination of John Gosden and Frankie Dettori, it is no surprise to see him priced up as a shortpriced favourite.
That said, Advertise has arguably achieved even more as the only Group One winner in the field and odds of around 7-1 are too good to pass up.
Martyn Meade’s youngster made a big impression on his racecourse debut at Newbury in the spring and found only the Gosden-trained and subsequently sidelined Calyx too strong in the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot.
Advertise has since proved he belongs at this level by landing the July Stakes and the Group One Phoenix Stakes, showing he has courage to go with his class on the latter occasion at the Curragh.
The son of Showcasing has been trained for the Dewhurst ever since, the step up to seven furlongs should suit and Oisin Murphy looks the perfect supersub for Dettori in the saddle.
With a massive prize fund of £500,000 up for grabs, Willie Mullins throws several darts at the Dubai Cesarewitch and the one who makes most appeal at the prices is Low Sun.
