David Loughnane has been very selective of his runners at Windsor so far this season. That’s a strategy which has worked out very well thus far. The Shropshire-based trainer has had just five runners at the track during the current campaign and four of them have won. He sends just one to the Berkshire course on Monday and it has to be of interest with this 80 per cent strike-rate in mind.
Loughnane’s charge is currently available at 12-1 which looks a big price on the balance of its best form. Rossa Ryan is on board and he tasted Group 1 glory at Newmarket on Saturday. Check out our free tips page for daily content across British and Irish racing.
Mojomaker (12-1, William Hill) hasn’t been in the best of form so far this season but the handicapper is beginning to relent accordingly. His best performance during the current campaign came at Goodwood in and he was a four-length second of six. Loughnane’s gelding did finish third last time out but was again beaten by a comfortable margin.
On some of his best form, he looks very interesting now down to a mark of 83. He ran a couple of nice races at Doncaster last season in a higher grade and off higher ratings. This includes a narrow second last July off a mark of 86 and a repeat of that effort would put him bang in the mix here.
Now that the handicapper has given him a chance, we could see a much more competitive horse. The trainer’s excellent strike-rate at the track is hard to ignore and that in itself would give him a big chance. It’s unlikely that he’s there to make up the numbers and a big run could be on the cards.
