Bookies Take Cover In Nunthorpe Betting

William Hill slashed Take Cover to 8-1 from 20-1 for the Nunthorpe after the David Griffiths-trained sprinter scored in the Qatar King George Stakes.

“It is worth considering that Take Cover loves Goodwood, but even accounting for his track preference, he would have every chance if lining up in the Nunthorpe at York,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
