@Suffolk for the Cambridgeshire

I like this shot. I like to watch from the head-on stand, but whilst you can see the runners come into the dip from there, this photo gives a better sense of the camber they are dealing with. No wonder so many become unbalanced going into it.

I’ve had a look at the declarations, but with massive fields in the first two races and the ground going soft yesterday I couldn’t possibly pick anything out from those at the moment. I might be tempted by William Haggas’ Fury in the second if the paddock inspection offers some hope. In the Sun Chariot I would like to see Seta hack up, but she will only run if the ground is suitable according to Cumani. If she doesn’t run I will be back to banging my head on the Spacious door.

Big Saturday handicaps give me a rash. I managed to find the Cambridgeshire winner last year, Supaseus, in the paddock. A repeat performance is highly unlikely. I may have a closer look at the Irish raider Pires and Elliptical. Really I just want some fresh air and a day out…

  1. For the purposes of not aftertiming when the money spider has come good later I am recording that I have done an ew lucky 15 comprising the following:

    Fury, Seta, Kithonia @ Epsom and Ed Dunlop’s filly in the first @ HQ name begins with M.

    All should cope with soft ground.

  2. I don’t want to spoil or pre-empt tomorrows blog, if planned, but will Workforce win?

  3. I would be utterly amazed if he did.

  4. Stephen Foster

    Lope de Vega.

    • Can’t have it myself. Connections said after his win in the Prix du Jockey that the 10.5f was as far as they felt he would get.
