Windhoek: Could run in the Dante Stakes

Sky Bet

Newmarket winner Windhoek looks set to take his chance in the Betfred Dante Stakes at York next month.

The Mark Johnston-trained three-year-old is unbeaten in two starts after a profitable reappearance in the £200,000 Tattersalls Millions 3-Y-O Trophy at HQ on Thursday.

The result plesantly surprised Johnston, who expressed the view afterwards that he had expected the Cape Cross colt to have needed the run.

He is not in the Investec Derby at this stage, but is owned by Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum and looks like getting the chance to stake his claim for a Classic chance in the major Knavesmire trial on May 16.

Johnston said: "I've only had a brief discussion with John Ferguson (bloodstock advisor to Sheikh Mohammed) but he'll probably go to the Dante."
