Both Beyond and Sentry Duty have been well-backed in recent days with the former now 11/1 (from 16/1) and the latter 11/1 (from 14/1). Both horses have also landed plum draws in stalls three and one respectively.
"We’re really struggling to find an outright favourite for the Cesarewitch and whilst Tuscan Gold and Keys have been at the head of the market since the ante-post book opened, the momentum is clearly with the likes of Beyond and Sentry Duty who have been really well-backed over the past few days," said Betfred spokesman George Primarolo.
A field of nine has been declared for Saturday’s Dubai Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket and Betfred make Bronterre and Power the 3/1 joint-favourites. Impressive Doncaster winner Ektihaam has shortened slightly in the market to 7/2 (from 4/1) and it’s 7/1 bar that trio.
