Ladbrokes offering 1/4 place odds on every race at York today

| 11.05.2011

York’s Dante Festival offers punters the chance to witness some of the finest flat horses in training in action this week as the flat season swings fully into action.

Channel Four is screening the first four races of the day at York, starting at 1.30pm, and with Ladbrokes offering punters place terms of a 1/4 odds for every race on day one, punters are in for a real treat.

New customers who open an account will receive a free horse racing bet worth up to £30 when depositing between £5 and £30 today! Sign up here.

The highlight of the day is the Duke of York Stakes and Regal Parade currently heads the betting at 11/2 with Delegator and Genki in close attendance at 6/1.

A field of 14 will take to York’s racetrack for the six furlong sprint at 3.00pm, and with so much quality in the field punters could be in for one thrilling finish.

Prime Defender won last year’s Duke of York Stakes and the Barry Hills-trained seven-year-old will line up in the race this year although he is the 25/1 outsider.

Only two seven-year-old’s have ever won the Duke of York Stakes in its 30-year history which is bad news for fans of Prime Defender, Regal Parade and Genki, and Delegator, the mount of Frankie Dettori, looks the pick of the Duke of York Stakes odds.

The Tatterstalls Musidora Stakes at 2.30pm will allow punters to witness a potential star of the future with the likes of Short Skirt, Lush Lashes and Sariska winning this in the past.

Arizona Jewel looks likely to start the race as the favourite and is currently trading at 6/4 with Barefoot Lady (5/2), Amazing Beauty (3/1) and Joviality (13/2).

Whey Sauce is the outsider of the five runners at 50/1 and his chances look slim in a race that has produced the winner of the Epsom Oaks on five occasions.

A £10 stake on Barefoot Lady winning the Musidora Stakes would return £35. New customers can sign up here to take advantage of a free bet worth up to £30.
