A non-runner and a third minus the reduction factor was Sunday's return, so Alan is bumping up the odds with a 29/1 double for Windsor this evening...
"Eve Johnson-Houghton's horse enjoyed a productive 2020 - which included a Newmarket victory in a 0-105 handicap, a stronger grade than today."
Marsden looks ready for new trip
17:20 Windsor - Back Marsden Cross
The new distance of 1m4f should be of great benefit to Marsden Cross - who tackles the trip for the first time on Monday evening.
Trained by Sir Mark Todd, his latest run at Yarmouth looks a good piece of form. He raced wide there and was outpaced over the 1m2f, so it was fair enough effort for his handicap debut.
He runs from 67 today and throw in the steady pace at Chelmsford over 1m, things could fall into place for him.
Toast to Gin if he wins finale
20:20 Windsor - Back Gin Palace
Gin Palace could be ready to strike from a mark of 87, a figure that is well within his range.
Eve Johnson-Houghton's horse enjoyed a productive 2020 - which included a Newmarket victory in a 0-105 handicap, a stronger grade than today.
He was too keen over the far side at Ascot recently, and seeing too much daylight didn't help his cause. He is adaptable with the going, and at 7/2 rates a fair chance.
