The selection for Newmarket’s major betting race has been given a preparation that looks a lot like a build-up to this day
Surely the Cambridgeshire was among the thoughts of Ian Williams and Dr Marwan Koukash when they acquired Restorer (3.40) last November. The grey’s best performance to date was when winning a Listed race over a slightly longer distance on this course at Newmarket, back in 2015.
Having won for them at Chester in May and then failed to cope with a quick return to the track, Restorer has been given a preparation that looks a lot like a build-up to this day. If I’m right about that, he will surely shorten from his present odds of 50-1. Godolphin’s Very Talented would be a more conventional choice and seems likely to fare well.
