Day two of the Future Champions Meeting at Newmarket is headlined by the Dewhurst Stakes. This historic Group One was first run on the Rowley Mile back in the 1870s, and many winners of the Dewhurst go on to run in the 2000 Guineas the following season.

We've taken a look through the confirmed field for this year's Dewhurst Stakes and picked out our best betting tips.

2021 Dewhurst Stakes Runners

Native Trail dominates the betting for Saturday's Group One highlight. Charlie Appleby's youngster is unbeaten in three starts this term, and was handed a superb rating of 122 after romping to victory over Point Lonsdale in the National Stakes last time out.

Bayside Boy defeated three dangerous challengers to win the Champagne Stakes and he sits second in the betting. Like Aidan O'Brien's Cheveley Park Stakes winner Tenebrism, Glounthaune hasn't been seen since winning a maiden in the spring, but he's likely to take his chance in this Group One.

Fellow Irish raider, Straight Answer will fly the flag for Ger Lyons and Juddmonte Stud. Dubai Legend and Berkshire Shadow will both be looking to bounce back from poor runs at York. Dhabab and Go Bears Go round off the field.

2021 Dewhurst Stakes Tips

I'm a huge fan of Native Trail, who sits 10 pounds clear of his closest rival in the ratings here. I backed Charlie Appleby's charge to win the 2022 2000 Guineas at 16/1 following his victory in the Superlative Stakes, and that emphatic triumph in the National Stakes saw his price for that Classic slashed into around 4/1.

While I think he's just going to be too good for them on Saturday, there's little point backing Native Trail at 8/11. So, with three paid places available, I'm going to have an each-way stab with BERKSHIRE SHADOW.

Andrew Balding's juvenile looked a horse to follow when he bolted up in the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot. Oisin Murphy's mount then looked to be labouring on soft ground in the Vintage Stakes at Glorious Goodwood, but made steady late headway to finish a close second behind Angel Bleu.

I'm prepared to put a line through his poor run in the Gimcrack. Berkshire Shadow was very slowly away and seemed a little out of his comfort zone on fast ground. The form of his Goodwood run was boosted significantly when Angel Bleu won the Jean-Luc Lagardere on Arc day last weekend, and I think the extra cut in the ground will help this talented young horse.



Native Trail could simply outclass the opposition again, but I'd rather side with Berkshire Shadow each-way at 25/1.
