Our racing expert has a trio of Windsor runners for you to back.
DRAGSTONE ROCK was caught late on when making his turf/handicap debut at Pontefract seven days ago and he can go one better in this evening’s 5f handicap. That run was hardly a surprise as he had shown ability on a couple of all-weather starts and this half brother to Justice Day (a Listed winner over this trip) might have even more to offer on what is just his fifth start. He’s certainly less exposed than most of these and if getting on the lead early he could prove hard to catch over this less demanding track.
Henry Candy has had a couple of winners in the last week or so and his runners here are always to be respected, so that bodes well for his PAST MASTER in the 1m2f handicap on the card. The five-year-old is the form choice too having finished third behind Stormy Atlantic on his debut at Sandown in August 2015 and second in a Lingfield maiden run over this trip last December. The five-year-old has clearly had his problems given he’s been restricted to just three runs, but he’s surely got more to give and looks handicapped to win on a mark of 77 (his Lingfield conqueror is now rated 83).
Petitioner is a worthy favourite for the 1m3f handicap as he was a clear second at Newmarket when last seen and is open to further progress. However, one of his rivals further down the weights, Philip Hide’s ZAMBEASY, catches the eye for several reasons. For one, he’s very well handicapped having dropped to a mark of 71, which is 6lb less than his rating when successful over this course and distance a couple of years ago. He followed that up with a close second, again over this track and trip, and on both occasions he was ridden by Jamie Spencer, who takes the reigns this evening. At 14/1, he has to be worth a small each-way interest.
All odds were correct at time of posting.
