Monday night means we return to Windsor for an exciting card. There are nine races to dig your teeth into and the Tote Placepot will be available across the first six of them. We are on hand to help you win a share of the pool.
Simply pick a horse to place in each of the opening six races to claim your reward.
How's the Going?
The going has been confirmed as good to soft, soft in places. However, with thunderstorms due over the course of Sunday night and part of Monday this may change. With this, we don’t expect many non-runners to come through, so with big fields there could be a large dividend available.
The Placepot banker comes in the final leg of the Placepot in QUEEN OF THE SEA (6:30pm). She was very unlucky last time out to unseat Oisin Murphy here at Windsor. Before that she had three thirds on the trot. In each of those races, the winner has gone on to win again so that form is looking good. Cieren Fallon takes the ride today, who will be claiming three valuable pounds and it will be no surprise to see them grab victory here.
Outsider to Consider
The penultimate leg of the Placepot is a very open ten-runner handicap. The 10 are separated by 17lbs and there are only two horses that arrive with winning form. We are going for two here, one of which will be going off with huge value and not many units, CHASANDA (6:00pm). The daughter of Footstepsinthesand has fallen down the ratings from 74 to 67 and with a best speed figure of 74, there is so much more there than what we have seen.
The other selection is sprint specialists, Charlie Hills’ SPOOF. A very consistent sort who manages to do everything right except win. Once rated 100, now off a mark of 73, this could be dangerous and there might be a lot left in the tank.
The fourth leg of the Tote Placepot has 14 runners, meaning there are only three places up for grabs. It is another open handicap and should the top two or three in the market have an off day, the units remaining could be broken up.
WINNETKA (5:30pm) has not finished outside the top four in each of his four appearances and probably needed his first run of the season last time out here two weeks ago. Off a mark of 72, and this time Mollie Phillips takes seven pounds off as a claiming apprentice. That makes this race very achievable.
I’M WATCHING YOU has yet to feature as a three-year-old meaning he may be ahead of the handicapper. An improving three-year-old is always difficult to spot meaning any sort of improvement for the Ronald Harris trained gelding could mean a surprising victory.
