THE BUNBURY CUP at Newmarket is always one of the most fiendishly difficult handicaps of the flat season to unravel and today’s renewal is no different with 19 runners going to the post for the 7f cavalry charge and they include Dean’s Kadrizzi.
Well handicapped, he is two pounds below his winning mark at Ascot last year although that was over 6f. The 4yo son of Hurricane Cat today runs in a first time visor and Harry Bentley takes the reins for the first time.
It’s stretching it to say he’s a good each-way bet at 66/1 but he is overpriced. Dangers abound including the well backed favourite Tashweeq who could give John Gosden a Bunbury and Bunbury Silver Cup double following Parfait’s win yesterday.
