Strong Support For Deauville

Deauville is 5-1 from 10-1 with William Hill for the Dante Stakes and is the key horse to be backed ahead of York’s big meeting this week.

“Deauville might just have the je ne sais quoi for the Dante,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke. “He’s been backed from 10-1 to 5-1 and is the best-backed horse in the race.”

Midterm is a relatively popular favourite at 11-10, while Wings Of Desire has shortened to 8-1 from 12-1.

In the Duke Of York, Moviesta is coming under pressure at 20-1.

“Moviesta could shorten ahead of the Duke Of York as he is being solidly backed,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

Meanwhile, Clever Cookie is 6-1 from 7-1 with William Hill for the Yorkshire Cup.
