Quiet afternoon for us, so we’ve reviewed some of the races at Windsor this evening. Just a bit of fun rather than any serious tips but hopefully they’ll be a few winners highlighted.
6:15 Windsor - It must be said that the current favourite here (TYGER BAY) is clearly the horse to beat. He comes into this race in form and the conditions won’t pose him any problems at all. However, at a bigger price, we expect NAPPING to run a solid race. Whilst he’s still 3lb above his last winning mark, he’s a CD winner, he handles soft ground and may well end up being the biggest danger to the fav.
7:15 Windsor - A sprint handicap which has cut up a little due to the ground. As with the first race of the night, we think that the favourite (CLAREDON HOUSE) sets a very high standard. There is however a question mark surround the going suitability. He’s bred to handle it but both his runs to date have come on quick turf, so it is certainly an unknown. We personally think he’ll win though and the only real danger would appear to be A SURE WELCOME but he won’t love the ground either.
7:45 Windsor - KNIGHTS OF KINGS - This is a trappy old contest featuring a bunch of largely disappointing types. Truth be told, we could make a case for quite a few including the likes of STIGWOOD and LA FORZA but in the end we sided with KNIGHTS OF KINGS who ran well on his last start and is expected to be in the mix this evening.
8:15 Windsor - HOLLYWOOD LADY - Usually we wouldn’t get involved in a race like this but we’ve had a positive word for this filly and she probably won’t find an easier opportunity than this. Looking at the form, the only horse that could potentially give her a run would be GLENCORA but even that horse would need to take a big step forward if he’s to beat Ralph’s filly.
