Betting Tip: Desert Haze @ 14/1 with bet365

Last year’s Rockfel Stakes winner Promising Run heads the market for what is a wide open fillies’ contest and that’s understandable as she’s the top-rated runner and was back in the winners’ enclosure last time in Turkey last time, when taking advantage of a drop in class. With her stable now firing on all cylinders after a long quiet spell due to a virus, she’s not opposed lightly and is preferred to main market rival Ashadihan, who has a long absence to overcome and still has to conclusively prove she stays 1m.

But there is plenty of each-way value to be had further down the betting list and I stopped at Ralph Beckett’s DESERT HAZE. She stays this trip well, winning thrice over it this season, and can be forgiven a below-par effort at Chantilly when last seen as the slow pace was against her. Best when coming late off a strong gallop, she ought to have the race run to suit and there are no worries over the forecast fast ground either. She does have a little to find on the ratings, admittedly, but she’s still improving and Beckett rates her his best chance of a winner at this meeting. At 14/1 with bet365 who are alone in offering one quarter the odds as opposed to the standard fifth, she’ll do for me.
