1pt double Muhaarar, Covert Love @16/1, Ascot 17th October

Muhaarar is a worthy favourite for Saturday’s Champions Sprint Stakes. The form of his three Group One victories this season – not to mention his Greenham Stakes win in April – has been franked time and again, ranking the best in Europe.

9/4 is short, but a repeat of his course and distance win in June would comfortably be good enough and his consistency since has been encouraging. That price might just be on the generous side and looks likely to come in before they’re off.

Covert Love is another who looks a shade generously priced at 9/2 despite winning the Prix De L’Opera at Longchamp and Irish Oaks at Curragh. A close second to Irish Guineas heroine Pleascach in the Yorkshire Oaks was sandwiched in between and she’s another highly-consistent Group-One performer with a big chance.

As singles, value is slim but the double is 16/1 with SkyBet and looks very good to me.
