For those who missed our ante-post tips from earlier in the week, get the latest prices and value selections for the Chevelely Park Stakes and Cambridgeshire Handicap at Newmarket.
Three weeks ago our in-house racing expert Alan Kelly sounded out Cornrow as a Cambridgeshire beauty at 14/1 and those who followed the ante-post tip will are now sitting pretty with a cracking value bet in hand. The son of New Approach should find this assignment well within his compass and following the withdrawal of Air Pilot, John Gosden’s unexposed 4-year-old now heads the market at best odds 7/1 with Paddy Power.
Alan is cetainly confident on his selection coming good over the 1 mile 1 furlong trip, but with a host of bookmakers paying enhanced place terms he also has a long-shot for your consideration. Spirit Of The Law could be among the pace-setters when the stalls open at 3.50 this afternoon and with just 8st 6lb to carry, odds of 50/1 with Ladbrokes (1/4 odds 6 places) or 40/1 with William Hill (1/4 odds 7 places) look worthy of a small each-way investment.
Before the Cambridgeshire gets underway, the Group 1 Connollys Red Mills Cheveley Park Stakes takes place at 3.10, for which Tiggy Wiggy heads the betting as a warm favourite. Alan feels the mount of Richard Hughes may be vulnerable over today’s 6 furlong trip after a busy campaign and tips High Celebrity to reel her in in the closing stages. Some firms are quoting odds as short as 11/4 about the mount of Maxime Guyon, but punters can still pick up a decent price at 9/2 with bet365.
