Anyone taking our ante-post advice on the Betfred Cambridgeshire are sitting pretty having taken the 14-1 available about the John Gosden-trained Cornrow who now heads the market as the general 6-1 favourite and off what could be a very lenient mark of 94 the mount of William Buick is strongly fancied to come home in front from stall 30 in the thirty five runner cavalry charge at Newmarket.
Trying to pre-judge where any draw advantage lies is always difficult in these races but there appears to be plenty of pace among the high numbers and with that in mind it could pay to have an each-way saver on a horse who is available at 50-1 with several bookmakers including Betvictor and Betfair Sportsbook who are both quoting a quarter the odds the first 5. Spirit Of The Law is the animal in question who is drawn right on the rail in berth 35 and this five-year-old likes nothing better than to bowl along in front and with just 8st 6lb to carry the mount of John Fahy could outrun his huge price by some way.
The trip of nine furlongs looks perfect for the son of Lawman who gained his last victory over this distance when making most to win a York handicap back in June. Beaten just over a length by Queensbury Rules at the Yorkshire venue on Ebor day Richard Fahey's gelding is 3lb better off with that horse who is no bigger than 16-1 to confirm the form in the £160,000 Heritage Handicap. Despite finishing a well beaten sixth behind the impressive Air Pilot ( missed the Cambridgeshire cut by one ) at Newbury last weekend Spirit Of The Law ran well for a long way and will appreciate the drop back in trip on better ground and while unlikely to repel the challenge of Cornrow is certainly capable of making the frame.
