Dubai Dante Stakes odds has Highest Ground odds-on

The current 4/5 odds-on favourite in Dubai Dante Stakes odds is HIGHEST GROUND* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 23:17 GMT on Wednesday 8th July 2020).

It has been an explosive start to his career without question.

The son of Frankel scored on his debut and on his return put in a blistering show of pace and power to score against at Haydock.

Highest Ground has Oisin Murphy booked and the Sir Michael Stoute-trained charge looks a classy prospect.

Al Madhar could be the one to challenge Dubai Dante Stakes odds favourite

It is an unbeaten record of two wins from two for AL MADHAR as well. Around twelve months ago he got off the mark on his debut at Newmarket.

Then he really had to battle to dig out a win over Encipher at Newbury over this same trip to maintain his perfect record. That score was by a neck.

But Al Madhar can’t be dismissed in Dubai Dante Stakes odds at 10/1* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 23:17 GMT on Wednesday 8th July 2020)

Cormorant looks to double up

There was a score for CORMORANT on his last run when he did superbly at Leopardstown to beat Russian Emperor (who won at Royal Ascot in his following race).

That success in the Derrinstown was in early June. Because of that he is going to pique plenty of interest in this one. It’s been two wins from four on the turf for him recently.

Rest of the Runners

ENCIPHER will still have some appeal after narrowly missing out to Al Madhar in his last trip. That came on his reappearance in mid-June. He scored on his second race track appearance over 7f at Newbury in July last year.

JUAN ELCANCO has not quite lived up to the potential that he showed on winning his debut. But on his return to action he did seem to be heading in the right direction with a fifth place finish in 2000 Guineas. But then he failed to stay the distance over this trip when he was last seen in the Hampton Court.

THUNDEROUS is not one to dismiss. He won all three efforts in his juvenile campaign. On his first effort as a three year old he was beaten into second place among Listed Company at this trip. He didn’t particularly run well there however.

Predictions & Tips for Dubai Dante Stakes Odds

What a great race this could well turn out to be. There are some fantastic three year olds squaring up in this one.

We would have to stick with the faovurite HIGHEST GROUND with jockey Oisin Murphy who won this race last year on Telecaster. Highest Ground looks like something a bit special.

The biggest challengers to him that we can see is CORMORANT who is a fascinating entrant in this contest and there is likely plenty of improvement to come from AL MADHAR too.
