With a 50-1 winner and two more at 40-1 in the last five years, the Cambridgeshire has re-emphasised its status as the most unpredictable Flat handicap of the season and the bookmakers will go into the latest renewal at Newmarket on Saturday with high hopes of another upset to boost their bottom line.

Mujtaba, a lightly raced son of Dubawi from the William Haggas stable, heads the market at around 5-1 but he failed to justify a similarly short price in a 22-runner Lincoln Handicap back in March and looks painfully short in the betting against 28 battle-hardened rivals on Saturday.

Haggas’s challenge is backed up by Protagonist, the second-favourite, who beat Dual Identity – also fancied for Saturday’ race – by less than a length in a well-run race at Sandown in August.

Both are dropping back from 10 furlongs to nine here, however, and also have single-figure draws, which has not been a positive in recent seasons.
