Hurricane Lane is available at 6/1 for next month’s Epsom Derby after an impressive victory in the Dante Stakes at York.

The Godolphin-owned three-year-old finished strongly to beat Megallan by three-quarters of a length on the Knavesmire. High Definition – the 13/8 favourite – could only place third while Roman Empire held on for fourth after making all the running.

Paddy Power traders reacted to Hurricane Lane continuing his unbeaten record by cutting his odds for the world’s greatest flat race from 12/1 to 6/1.

“This horse is still learning on the job, he jumped out and we got ourselves a nice position where I could just leaved him alone and build him up when I wanted to.
