The Cambridgeshire on Saturday

Statistics for Saturdays main race are below for you .
This race won’t play a significant
part in Saturday’s full member message.
I know however that many will like
a crack at one of the best handicaps of the year
so if you want to have a go the angles may help.

You may come to a different conclusion from me
if applying these angles as these are left open to
some interpretation. On my first scan of the race
I came out with two horses that I liked best. They
are not selections yet, simply early impressions.

Preliminary Shortlist

VELOX 12/1
BRONZE ANGEL 20/1
