2 plays in the handicap, the first of which is MUSADDAS (best price 12/1)
. The visor didn’t work at York but he ran a cracker at the track prior to that and so too in the Cambridgeshire. He came up the middle before drifting stand side, not where it paid to be, and he’s got the cheekpieces back on which have worked well before. He seems a horse that needs to change up the headgear and Eddie Greatrex is a very useful booking. I like he’s drawn low too, where it seems to have been the place to be at the track this year in the main. There’s not much pace on, perhaps Empire Storm in 16 the most likely to go forward, but I’m still looking low and Michael Attwater’s other charge, PROFESSOR (best price 25/1)
, looks overpriced. Very well treated on old form, he shaped well in the Ayr Gold Cup after an absence and 7 still looked on the sharp side here last time. 8 is well worth a go and he’s had a light summer in comparison to some of these.
