Betting Tip: Covert Love @ 10/3 with williamhill

Hugo Palmer’s record at this meeting – a winner and three places from his four runners 12 months ago – makes it even easy to side with his Covert Love, who has done nothing but improve this season, winning all four of her starts, including the Irish Oaks last time by a comfortable one and three-quarter lengths. The last four winners of that Classic to bowl up at York achieved finishing positions of 1221 and there is no obvious reason why the Curragh second and third, Jack Naylor and Curvy, should reverse the form. Especially when you consider the winner may not have finished improving.

Of the rest, Pleasach could leave her disappointing fifth in the Pretty Polly Stakes when last seen behind as she is likely to be refreshed after a break, but a bigger threat may come from French challenger SEA CALISI. She showed a smart turn if foot when winning a Group 2 at Saint-Cloud last time and this race was immediately singled out as her next target by her trainer Andre Fabre, whose runners on this side of the English Channel are always worth a second look. While Covert Love is put up as the most likely winner, I wouldn’t put anyone off having a few quid each-way on the French horse at 10/1 with bet365, who are a quarter the odds.
