Ground set to rule Boom And Bust out of weekend showpiece

Marcus Tregoning has booked William Buick to ride Bronze Angel in Saturday's Betfred Cambridgeshire with regular rider Hayley Turner unavailable.
His three-year-old looks likely to creep in at the bottom of the weights for the autumn showpiece, especially as stablemate Boom And Bust is unlikely to run if there's any give in the ground.
Bronze Angel will be having his first race since running third in the Britannia Handicap at Royal Ascot and the trainer told At The Races: "His big advantage is the fact he's coming to this race deliberately fresh. William Buick will ride him and he's in very good order and if the ground is slightly on the easy side it wouldn't worry me.
"Hayley is riding in America otherwise she'd definitely have ridden again but William is having a great year and it's good to have a jockey riding at his very best as he is."
Of his other runner the trainer added: "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).
"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."
