The Bunbury Cup is ran over 7 furlongs at the Newmarket July meeting, it's been won by some decent horses in the past.

The 2016 winner picked up almost £75,000 so it's certainly a prize worth going for.

The last 10 winners of the race were as follows -

Tabarrak, Steady Pace & Bossy Guest are the only 3 horses to have passed 5 of the 6 trends used, they all failed on the same trend, the Official Rating trend

Also, with Richard Fahey having such a good record in the race, his only entry Withernsea passes 4 of the 6 trends and could surprise at 33/1.

So my 4 against the field are -
Tabarrak, ew @ 16/1(Betbright)

Steady Pace, win @ 10/1(Betbright)

Bossy Guest, ew @ 20/1(Betbright)

Withernsea, ew @ 33/1(Betbright)
