Permian wins Dante & boosts Derby hopes of Cracksman

Permian wins the Dante Stakes at York

Permian won the Dante Stakes at York and boosted the Derby credentials of non-runner Cracksman.

The 10-1 winner, ridden by Franny Norton, saw off favourite Benbatl in second with Crystal Ocean third.

Cracksman, who beat Permian in Epsom’s Derby Trial in April, was ruled out of the York race by trainer John Gosden because of the rain-softened ground.
