Dewhurst Stakes Betting Preview And Tips
John Gosden's star juvenile Too Darn Hot will aim to maintain his unbeaten record when he lines up in a fascinating renewal of the Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket, but while he is a prominent figure at the top of the betting he will have some smart two-year-olds to beat in what is a superb renewal of the Group One showpiece on Saturday afternoon.

|Too Darn Hot to win Best Bet||1/1|
Dewhurst Stakes Odds
A stunning winner of the Champagne Stakes at Doncaster last time out, Too Darn Hot shaped like he is the next superstar of the Gosden production line and if he can build on that Group 2 win here then should prove to be a cut above his rivals in the Dewhurst Stakes and is entitled to be the Evens favourite with William Hill bookmakers.
Already a warm order for next year's 2000 Guineas, Too Darn Hot looks like a colt that can reach the very top of the ladder and it would be no surprise to see him shorten in the Classic market after Saturday's contest, and if he can produce a performance anywhere close to his display in the Champagne Stakes then he can duly cruise to victory at Flat HQ.
Sir Michael Stoute's Sangarius is another colt putting his 100% record on the line and having been well backed when winning on debut he went on to win a Listed event last time out, so has to be considered a lively contender at 7/2 with Paddy Power, but he may just lack the quality Too Darn Hot has to offer, so may struggle to maintain his unbeaten record.
Aidan O'Brien has won four of the last five renewals of this race and will unleash a three-pronged attack with Anthony Van Dyck (5/1 with Coral), Mohawk (22/1 with BetVictor) and Christmas (33/1 with Ladbrokes) all aiming to land the prize for Ballydoyle once again, and the market appears to have got that trio spot on with Anthony Van Dyck having the best form going into the race.
Martyn Meade's Advertise was a fine winner of the Group 1 Phoenix Stakes in Ireland, so could be the one to take the favourite on with at 8/1 with Betfair, but he may just lack the scope that Too Darn Hot posseses, and it's the Gosden-trained raider that can land the spoils for favourite backers.
