3.40 York: Darley Yorkshire Oaks (Group 1), 1m 4f
Plenty of these fillies have ran against each other this year. They share more or less similar form. it seems, whoever turns up on the day, wins it. Says, I can’t have Covert Love at all at 3/1. She is the favourite after her excellent Irish Oaks win, but let’s be honest, she has had the run of the race at the Curragh. But does that make her twice as good as Curvy? No. No way.
However it is the French filly Sea Calisi who intrigues me most and who is potentially a big price at 9/1. She was late foal, born in May, is still lightly raced, pretty unexposed and comes here after an impressive Group 2 success at Saint-cloud. She should be primed for this and won’t mind the ground.
Sea Calisi @ 9/1 Betfred – 5pts Win
