Take Cover is set to head to Ireland for his next race before embarking upon two treble attempts.

Trainer David Griffiths is targeting the Listed Midsummer Sprint Stakes at Naas on June 18 after he shaped well behind Battaash in the Temple Stakes at Haydock on Saturday on his first start since winning at Dundalk in October.

After that, the plan is for Take Cover to go for the City Walls Stakes at York on July 14, which he won in 2014 and 2017, and then bid for a third success in the King George Stakes at Glorious Goodwood on August 3. He lifted that Group Two dash in 2014 and 2016.

“He’s had his normal, first-time-out race in the Temple Stakes and wasn’t beaten far. He’s come out of the race fine,” said Griffiths.

“He’ll probably go to Naas, then to York for the City Walls. He’s won that twice before.

“We’ll try to win that for a third time before hopefully having another go at the King George at Goodwood.

“If he could win that for a third time it would be nice.”
