Win Cover on Quickthorn at 4/1
Well worth a saver on Quickthorn, who was so impressive last time and will appreciate all the rain at Ascot, he could easily be better than a handicapper in time.
Win O’Clock will also relish the underfoot conditions, with all his best form shown on a softer surface. He’s also a strong stayer having won over 1m6f last season. A cracking return to action in a really high class York handicap when 4th to Ilaraab, that form is very strong and he looks to be a far bigger price than he should be here.
