Alan hit a 9/2 winner yesterday and he is looking to back that up with two more selections from Windsor and Lingfield...
"He remains completely unexposed at this distance and shouldn’t be for catching"
Zoffee can go back-to-back tonight
I hope this is worth waiting for, as I think Zoffee has a great chance of winning the final race on the card at Windsor. He took a while to settle last time out but still had enough in the tank to break his maiden tag over today's course and distance. He's gone up 3lbs for that success, but I think he is better than his rating of 80 suggests, he wasted a lot of energy early and assuming he settles better he should easily handle the extra weight tonight. He remains completely unexposed at this distance and shouldn't be for catching once again with Silvestre De Sousa retaining the ride.
His penultimate start was also over today's course and distance where he finished second in a race that is starting to look very strong, the fourth and fifth home that day have both come out and won subsequently as of course has Zoffee.
Tammooz is the obvious danger and was running on at the end over 10 furlongs at Newbury, eventually just going down by a neck and a nose recently, where the front three finished well clear of the rest. Roger Varian's gelding is sure to go well again here off just 3lb higher, however, he is still a maiden and often finds one to beat him, tonight I think that one will be Zoffee.
Zappiness can send his supporters home happy
This won't be a race that will live long in the memory but I can't get away from the Peter Chapple-Hyam runner Zappiness with the in form Jack Mitchell on board, this low grade handicap looks perfectly set up for Zappiness to improve again and take this in his stride. He has built on three quietly progressive opening runs after being beaten just half a length on a handicap debut at Chelmsford earlier this month. He is another that remains thoroughly unexposed and he's only 2lbs higher, with further progress more than likely, he looks very tough to beat in this company.
Sir Canford looks the danger but with Ali Strong's yard struggling to find any winners of late and Sir Canford only managing to finish third after being sent off favourite on his latest start. I am sure he will appreciate the return to this trip but I am more than happy to take him on with the selection. Of the rest, Ramatuelle for Sir Mark Prescott has looked hard work in his races and debatable if Lingfield will suit. Four Mile Bridge is still a maiden after 12 starts and Mark Usher is another trainer on the cold list.
