Weekend Ante-Post Focus

Cesarewitch Tip

The Cesarewitch Handicap over the marathon distance of 2 mile 2 furlongs is the feature contest this weekend with a usual field of over 20 runners heading to post.

Looking from an ante-post perspective there is some huge value in some of the horses running and the the gelding that takes the eye is TIME TO STUDY at a big price of 16/1.

The Ian Williams trained five year old has ran to a credible level in the majority of his races this season, especially getting the hang of things in his last two contests.

Soft ground or good to soft conditions play to the strengths of the horse who has put in his best performances this season when getting this type of ground.

At Royal Ascot in testing conditions he finished a smart third in the 2 mile 4f Ascot Handicap and then recently has won his last two races in very soft ground over in France and soft conditions at Haydock.

With the way the weather forecast is supposed to be going and how the Rowley Mile sits at the moment everything is right for Time To Study to give a bold showing.

Another bonus for Ian Williams' runner is that he has he clever claimer Cieren Fallon taking off three pounds and it could make all the difference.
