Overview for Monday - please scroll down to the bottom of the page
6.00: Probably the best juvenile event staged at Windsor yet this season, with Richard Hannon (HIMSELF) and Jamie Osborne (HARBOUR MASTER) particularly 'bullish' about their two-year-olds via stable tours earlier in the year. At least three other leading trainers are also involved whereby the market should give a good indication of the chances of Bin Battuta (Saeed Bin Suroor), Silent Echo (Roger Charlton) and Fiendish (Mark Johnston).
Favourite factor: This is a new race with which to open proceedings at Windsor on Monday.
6.30: Last year's 25/1 winner was 'second mentioned' in my trio against the field and desperately hoping for an 'encore', I'm offering up MOUNT SHAMSAN (unplaced 7/4 favourite last year), KING TORUS and KIAMA BAY in this 'dead eight' contest.
Favourite factor: Two of the five favourites have secured toteplacepot positions to date via gold and silver medals.
7.00: 24 of the 31 toteplacepot positions have been claimed by horses carrying weights of 8-13 or more to date (including seven of the last ten winners) which effectively eliminates the bottom two (of nine) horses in the field if you take the stats seriously. Four-year-olds have won five of the last nine renewals (the vintage was not represented four years ago) and putting the stats and facts together produces a short list of OASIS SPEAR, GOLD SANDS and PRENDERGAST HILL (well beaten 9/2 favourite in a York event on penultimate start). The trio is listed in order of preference this side of midnight. My trio against the field last year included the second and third placed horses at 11/2 & 25/1.
Favourite factor: Six of the twelve market leaders have secured toteplacepot positions to date, statistics which include four winners.
Windsor record of course winners in the third event on the card:
2/7--Craftsmanship (good to firm & soft)
3/23--Starwatch (2 x good to soft & 1 x soft)
7.30: Chris Wall saddled a winner the other day and his stable is ready to rock and roll in my book whereby FIRST SITTING is the first name on the team sheet ahead of the two course and distance winners SPARRING and BAADI. Edward Greatrex remains rock solid value for his five pound claim whereby Passover is not (despite the name) easily passed over in a fascinating contest by Monday night standard.
Favourite factor: This is another new race on the Windsor programme.
Windsor record of course winners in the fourth contest:
1/1--Sparring (good to firm)
2/3--Baadi (good & soft)
8.00: Several of the leading trainers take each other on here with DARK SHOT (Andrew Balding), ANGIE'S GIRL (Clive Cox) and RAISING SAND (Roger Varian) expected to lead the field home. DARK SHOT will have disappointed his trainer thus far but once again, Andrew had found decent opportunity for his Acclamation raider.
Favourite factor: All three favourites (5/4 -11/5-5/4) have finished in the frame to date, the first pair having won their respective events.
8.30: Of the horses which should go well according to the official assessors in this Classified event, HIGHLY SPRUNG, HITMAN and ANOTHER BOY make most appeal, albeit only 'three spots' separate the twelve runners, whereby 'loose change' should be the staking plan if you must have a bet aside from our favourite (Placepot) wager.
Favourite factor: All seven market leaders have finished in the frame via six renewals, statistics which include five gold medallists.
All place details offered on my pages relate to an 'exact science', whereby horses that finish third in 5/6/7 runner races (and other such scenarios) are not 'placed' regarding my statistics.
