THE BEST backed horse yesterday for Saturday's Cambridgeshire with Coral was Supply And Demand, who was cut to 9-1 from 16-1. The firm's spokesman, Simon Clare, said: "From the moment we opened this morning, Supply And Demand was the only horse our customers wanted to back. We cut it from 16-1 to 12-1 in the first half an hour of trading, then to 10-1 and finally to 9-1.

"If Dokos doesn't run, Kieren Fallon will ride and Supply And Demand will start favourite." However, a spokeswoman for Dokos's trainer, Henry Cecil, confirmed that their horse is on course for the race.

For Your Eyes Only will carry top weight of 9st 10lb in the race, for which 47 horses were confirmed at yesterday's five-day stage.

Tim Easterby, the horse's trainer, said: "For Your Eyes is in good form and working well, Jason Weaver rides." The winner of three good handicaps already this season when carrying blinkers, the four-year-old gelding was without the headgear last time when he disappointed behind Great Dane in a Listed event at York.
