The big race on the Saturday at Glorious Goodwood is the Class 2 Stewards' Cup Handicap and we have picked out one horse at an each way price that we believe will be shorter come the off of the race.

The four year old son of Bated Breath seems to take to 6f round Ascot, especially with cut in the ground and for that reason he could have the edge on some of these.

Back in October 2020 he finished a good second over course and distance on soft ground and then backed that up at Newcastle with another solid runner up performance.

He returned this year needing the run at Kempton, but next time out over 6f at Ascot he got off the mark for the term when taking an 18 runner handicap in good style.

The gelding was sent over the same course and distance last time out at Royal Ascot and finished a narrow second to the Group Two winning Rohaan.

Having soft ground and big field experience, he looks an obvious each way bet in this field, and only 3lb higher than his latest second makes him a big player.
