Weather key to Tregoning plan
Marcus Tregoning is keeping an eye on the weather as he considers the Betfred Cambridgeshire for his duo of Boom And Bust and Bronze Angel.
The Lambourn trainer fears the ground may not be suitable for Boom And Bust, while Bronze Angel is not yet guaranteed a place in the final field.
"Boom And Bust has only just run and ran a fantastic race in a conditions race at Newbury on Friday when finishing second to an improving three-year-old (Grandeur)," Tregoning told At The Races.
"He's in very good form and takes his racing really well, but he's a top-of-the-ground specialist.
"I think the weather is a bit better today and they haven't had as much rain as they have had in some parts of the country at Newmarket, so we just hope for the best.
"He's in good form and has taken his race well, so he'll be considered for it anyway.
"If it was soft, I don't think he would run and I can be fairly certain if he did he wouldn't be seen at his best."
Bronze Angel has not raced since finishing third to Fast Or Free in the Britannia Handicap at Royal Ascot in June.
Tregoning gave the three-year-old a break as he had been on the go since January.
"His big advantage is that he's coming into this race deliberately fresh," said Tregoning.
"He's had a nice holiday in between time. He is certainly working very well and at the moment William Buick will ride him. The weights need to go up a little bit just to help us.
"He's in very good order and if the ground was on the easy side it wouldn't worry me for him.
"He did plenty of racing early in the year and was racing on the all-weather. It's very hard to go from one end of the season to the other without having a break somewhere in between.
"Hayley (Turner) is actually riding in America otherwise she definitely would have ridden him.
"William has had a great year. I love to have jockeys riding our horses when they are riding at their very best like William is."
