Andrea Atzeni has been one of the finest jockeys around in recent years. He has had some high profile jobs and is always on the shortlist for big race spare rides. Atzeni has had just 14 rides at Windsor during the current campaign and seven of them have resulted in victory. This 50 per cent record is particularly impressive and he bids to extend it with one ride there on Monday evening. Check out our free tips page for daily content across British and Irish racing.
Pride Of Nepal (11-4, William Hill) is a progressive four-year-old who has been in particularly good form of late. The gelding has a solid track record at Windsor, including his course and distance victory last time out. A consequence of that win is that he’s now on a career-high mark of 71. This isn’t a massive concern because as he’s in the form of his life at the moment.
Jeremy Scott’s charge tends to just do enough. As a result, he leaves the impression that there’s more to come from him. It seems possible that the handicapper may not have him in their grasp just yet. Atzeni was on board last time which gives the pair a 1oo per cent record together.
There are plenty of recent winners in this super-competitive five-runner affair. Winning will require a career-best but it would be risky to rule out further improvement. 5o per cent could become 53 as the on-fire jockey has been presented with a cracking opportunity to win at Windsor again.
