Windsor has its usual Monday evening slot and the following three horses all look to have solid chances at the Berkshire venue.

The feature race on the night is the Sky Bet Royal Windsor Stakes, a Listed contest over an extended mile, and David Simcock’s LIGHTNING SPEAR should be up to beating his four inferior-rated rivals. The winner of his first four starts (a maiden and three handicaps) when with the now retired Olly Stevens, he ran some excellent races in defeat when stepped up into Group company, including when finishing in a Group 1 at Deauville last August. The five-year-old son of Pivotal is making his stable / seasonal debut this evening and his in-form trainer is hoping this race can be a stepping stone to greater things later this season.

He wrote in a recent Stable Tour: ‘A lovely acquisition for the yard and, on what we’ve seen so far, he’s pretty talented. He’ll be campaigned in the majority of the top mile races and the Queen Anne [Group 1, Royal Ascot] will be the first big target. As a starting point we’ll look at the Royal Windsor Stakes on Monday. He’s showing up well and could be very good.’
