Dare To Dance is attempting to be the first of his age group to win the prestigious nine furlong handicap since Pipedreamer after the three-year-old ended up being the 33rd name on the list
Questioning is next in the market at 9/1 after being well backed but Arlequin, 16/1, heads the weights. Cry Fury is a 10/1 shot whilst Godolphin will be looking to continue their rich vein of form with Man Of Action.
Betfred spokesman George Primarolo said “Ante-post punters will be breathing a sigh of relief after the well-backed Cambridgeshire favourite Dare To Dance scraped into the field though there is a chance he may not go off as jolly as there has been plenty of support for Questioning over the past few days.”
Sponsors Betfred are offering a bonus of £100,000 this year to any stable which provides the winner of both the Betfred Cambridgeshire and Betfred Cesarewitch. The bonus will be split two ways with £50,000 going to the winning trainer and £50,000 split amongst the stable staff in the yard.
At Friday’s Newmarket meeting, Fallen For You is now a 2/1 shot (from 5/2) for the Shadwell Fillies’ Mile with Betfred. Consequently, Lyric Of Light has been eased slightly at the head of the market to 7/4 (from 6/4).
