Ad­ver­tise to tempt mar­ket

South Wales Echo - - Motors -

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.
