Place Lay Bay Of Poets @ 2.427/5 in the 14:20 at Newmarket
Back Treasury Notes each way @ 14.013/1 in the 16:10 at Newmarket
Back Shady Mccoy @ 10.09/1 in the 17:20 at Newmarket

Today's negative comes from the 14:20 Royal Lodge Stakes over 1m. Selection Bay of Poets has proved easy to back this morning drifting from 6.05/1 out to the currently available 7.87/1, and due to his price is advised as a place lay at 2.427/5. After a poor debut finishing last of six at Haydock, he got off the mark second time out at Kempton in a weak race. The difference in quality between that field and today's Group 2 contenders suggest he will finish outside of the placings and it would be no great surprise if he were to return a double figure BSP.

Our each way pick comes from the main event The Cambridgeshire, run at 16:10 over 1m 1f. Treasury Notes has seen heavy support halving in price from 28.5 to 14.013/1. With five career wins including his last two outings, he looks to have come into form at exactly the right time. An impressive winner of a decent race at Ripon last time out over a mile, he looked to have more in the tank so 1m 1f should suit.

For our second positive we go to the 17:20 Handicap over 7f. Selection Shady Mccoy has had a steady stream of money come for him and is now trading at 10.09/1 from 13.5. He hung right when finishing sixth last time out in the Goodwood Revival Stakes, however if you ignore that blip he has been in great form over the last year including beating 15 others home at Goodwood in July and has the speed to take this race.
