Saturday’s big race is the Cambridgeshire on the Rowley Mile at Newmarket, where more than thirty runners will battle it out in the world-famous Heritage Handicap.

Luke Parkinson has taken a look at all the runners and picked out three outsiders who could run better than their odds suggest.

Bedouin’s Story

The well-travelled Bedouin’s Story has seen more of the all-weather than he has of turf in the UK of late, but he should run a big race this weekend if the expected rainfall can add a bit of cut to the ground.

He was last seen on turf at York in July, winning fairly comfortably on soft going, which now means three of his four victories have come on good-to-soft or slower.

He’ll run with a mark of 101 this Saturday, but that shouldn’t put him out of the picture either with a second-place effort coming off that mark on the all-weather at Chelmsford just over two weeks ago.

He is clearly in good form and may well hand trainer Saeed bin Suroor with a first win in the Cambridgeshire.


The Alan King-trained Beringer has shown a decent level of form this season, including a win on the Rowley Mile in a class two back in April, a race in which he was only a pound lower than he is this Saturday.

He was also second in a similar event at Sandown off a mark of 98 and has shown he can handle these big field events with a consistent run to finish fifth in a sixteen runner handicap at Goodwood just two starts ago.

However, he does have a tendency to throw in a below-par run and that looks to have come last time out at York when he was way down the field finishing twelve of fourteen.

That shouldn’t put you off though, and might just reward you with a bigger price if he can bounce back to something like this best.

Nicholas T

Dolphin Vista was a 50/1 winner of the Cambridgeshire back in 2017, and Nicholas T could well follow suit at a similar price this weekend.

He was seen just seven days ago at Ayr when he was beaten just a neck by Certain Lad off a mark off 96.

His last three runs, all in class two’s,  have seen him go fourth, third and then second off 96, so there’s a reason to believe he can continue that improvement off this same mark this weekend.

Ayr is a track he seems to excel at, but if he can transform that consistency to Newmarket then he could well be a dark horse and a real each-way player at a huge price.
