Decided to add Bronze Angel at 25's ew 5 places, and 42's to 44's on here, to go along with original 2 selections. Now just to hope they all make it.
Was there any word on why he hasn't run since April? Couldn't find anything myself.

Interesting that with the defection of Sacred Act, Frankie's now riding Bravo Zolo and Ryan switched to another Gosden runner.I wonder which trainer ' claimed' who ?
My take - which is little more than guesswork admittedly - is that once the fav defected Frankie wanted to ride Bravo Zolo and Noseda wanted him (seems to ride the majority of Noseda's when they have a big chance, only forfeited the ride on Nemoralia to Spencer because he could n't do the weight), probably RM's choices were limited at that point 'cos most of the other rides were taken so Gosden was happy to let Frankie off knowing he could get a top class replacement in Moore - and Moore still has a ride in the race. The big hole in this piece of supposition is that RM has ridden Bravo Zolo before but Frankie has n't.
Anyway, I would n't be surprised if Bravo Zolo is the gamble of the race come Saturday morning and goes off favourite.

Pipedreamer....."As for Sandown being a good place to PREP a horse for this race.1 out of 26 aint a good stat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.30 out of the last 34 years for example is!!!".....Ok then, look at it this way, in the last 19 years there have been 623 runners in the Cambridgeshire with 19 winners and 76 placed horses. Only 26 of these 623 runners had a prep race at Sandown but it produced a winner and 4 placed horses...16/1 winner and limiting to only 4 places it gave 7/1 25/1 25/1 50/1....I disagree thats a negative as its above average....
If a horse previously ran at Sandown it is more likely to place in the Cambridgeshire than a horse from any other track. Fact! (last 19 years, tracks with >3 examples.)
People do get caught up with silly stats too much. If you're knocking a horse or even choosing a horse because it ran at Sandown last time then you have issues.
