    Godolphin’s Quick Wit has been left at the head of the weights for the Betfred Cambridgeshire at Newmarket on Saturday.

    With Set The Trend being taken out, the Saeed bin Suroor-trained Quick Wit, who picked up a 4lb penalty for his recent win at Doncaster, will carry top weight if he runs.

    Clive Cox has also taken out Black Spirit after his win at Newbury on Saturday. Godolphin could also run Start Right and Man Of Action.

    Fury, Boom And Bust and Mijhaar are also towards the head of the weights while ante-post fancies like Mukhadram and Chil The Kite have stood their ground.

    Last year’s winner Prince Of Johanne could run again but Bronze Angel and last year’s runner-up Stevie Thunder need a few to come out to guarantee a run.

    Spanish Duke could aim to give John Dunlop the perfect send off into retirement while his son, Ed, may run Dragonera. King’s Warrior, Mull Of Killough, Making Eyes and Rewarded are also in the mix.

    Declan Carroll is counting down the hours to post time with Swiftly Done.

    The Driffield handler has had his eyes on the big prize ever since the five-year-old won at Doncaster way back in early June.

    He endured a troubled passage last time out in the Betfred Mile at Glorious Goodwood when beaten just over three lengths into seventh.

    “This has been the plan since he won at Doncaster in June,” said Carroll. “If the forecast for rain is right that should suit him as we know he handles testing ground well.

    “I’ve been really pleased with him all season and he’s been training very well since Goodwood.

    “He was unlucky not to be closer in the Betfred Mile. I’m not saying he’d have won but he’d certainly have been closer.

    “That form is top class. It proved to us that he’s worth his place in races like this.

    “I’m sure he’ll get the trip, certainly the way he finished at Goodwood suggested he will.”
