Monday nights at Windsor are now a regular fixture in the flat racing calendar, and the Berkshire venue plays host to a competitive seven-race card this evening.
One rider who has excelled at the track this season is James Doyle, with the Godolphin retainer operating at an eye-catching 40% strike-rate with his rides at Windsor so far this campaign.
He arrives with three strong chances of success today, and here at myracing, we will delve further into the chances of his respective mounts – analysing whether he will be able to pull off a 92/1 treble – which is currently best priced with William Hill, who have a sign-up offer available on our free bets page.
The opening race on the card is the Zupermann Automotive Handicap, which is a 0-75 six-furlong handicap. With their retained rider Silvestre De Sousa currently out injured, King Power Racing turns to Doyle to ride their filly Chil Chil – who at the time of writing heads the market at 10/11.
This daughter of Exceed And Excel benefitted from a wind operation, and the switch to handicap company, to score at Kempton five days ago. She has a six-pound penalty to contend with on her return to turf today, but the manner in which she pulled clear suggests it is unlikely to prevent a follow-up success as long as this run does not come too soon.
Our tipsters’ certainly rate the fillies’ chances strongly, having selected her as our Nap of the Day!
The British Stallion Studs EBF Novice Stakes sees a field of twelve juveniles do battle over six furlongs. James Doyle takes the mount on the William Haggas trained Bryn Du, who has had the two starts in his career to date – finishing fifth on both occasions.
This Ivawood colt needs a step up on those efforts to be competitive here, but he is certainly in the right hands to progress, and he is one of only three horses in this line-up to have already run at Windsor.
James Doyle’s final mount on the card is Incinerator, who is currently jostling for favouritism in the Windsor’s Greatest Show Fireworks Extravaganza Nursery Handicap – which sees a field of six go to post over the mile distance.
Hugo Palmer trains this colt by Oasis Dream, who has won one of his five starts to date. He was the subject of a gamble at Salisbury last time out, and although he could only finish fourth there, his connections appear to have provided him with a fine opportunity to make amends today.
