Overview for Sunday - please scroll down to the bottom of the page
2.10: It seems inconceivable that the only older runner (Dance With Kate) can five ten pounds to seven three-year-olds, the pick of which should turn out to be DAME JUDYI, EJAYTEEKAY and (possibly) ECNCORE MOI. The first named pair of selections should be good enough to get us through to the second leg of our favourite wager.
Favourite factor: All five favourites in this opening event had won before last year's 6/4 market leader could only finish sixth of seven.
2.40: Only George Margarson of the five represented trainers is struggling to saddle winners of late, whereby the fast ground Yarmouth winner Shypen is easily dismissed. SILKEN SKIES is a soft ground (Haydock) winner who deserves to land another prize. Connections might have most to fear from THIS IS FOR YOU and TERESAR. All three horses are likely to be included in my Placepot mix, as Shypen is not certain to line up having run on Friday, whereby this race could develop into a 'win only' four runner contest.
Favourite factor: This is a new race on the Windsor card.
3.10: Favourites used to have appalling record in this event as you see below. Richard Hannon comes into the race on a hat track and BLUE SUEDE certainly boasts claims, though two recent winners will surely provide a decent test on Sunday, namely QUEEN CELESTE and MRS DANVERS. The trio are just about listed in order of preference at the time of writing, though oh so marginally.
Favourite factor: Just two (1/10 & 8/11) favourites have obliged via ten renewals during the last eleven years. The last two successful market leaders followed eight favourites which all followed out of the frame.
3.40: The last eight winners have all carried a minimum burden of nine stones, whilst five of those gold medallists weighed in with at least 9-4. Marco Botti (ROCKSPIRIT) and William Knight (GOODWOOD ZODIAC) have saddled winners of late and this pair are the only 'qualifers' via the extended weight trends on this occasion. From what I witnessed at Windsor early on Saturday, the ground will be very testing and the low weight that LILBOURNE PRINCE is asked to carry could bring the David Evans raider into the mix at the business end of the contest..
Favourite factor: All nine winners during the last eleven years have scored at a top price of 13/2, statistics which include three successful market leaders. Six of the nine favourites have secured toteplacepot positions.
Record of course winners in the four event on the card:
4.15: Soft and heavy ground winner BIRDMAN 'deserves' top weight having secured eight victories thus far, with the next pair in the handicap expected to provide the sternest opposition, namely FELIX LEITER and STORM ROCK. The other four declarations might struggle in the conditions going by previous form lines and I expect the first named pair to get us through to the Placepot finale.
Favourite factor: This is another new race on the Windsor programme.
4.45: OWER FLY scored at 25/1 for Richard Hannon and his team here at Windsor on soft ground back in April and there is every reason to expect another decent run from the Pastoral Pursuits course and distance winner in this grade/company. Soft ground Leicester winner ALIZOOM is feared, especially with the runner up (Saintly) having franked the form in no uncertain terms at Newmarket on Friday.
Favourite factor: Favourites of one sort or another have secured four of the last six renewals of the Placepot finale.
Record of course winners in the last leg of our favourite wager:
1/1--Art Collection (good)
1/2--Ower Fly (soft)
1/1--Alizoom (good to soft)
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.
