There is flat racing from Windsor on Monday

Timeform take you through the card at Windsor on Monday...

"Ed Walker operates at a 20% strike rate at Windsor and would have had this race in mind for his charge since her qualifying win in the middle of June."

Timeform on Molls Memory

17:00 - An open looking handicap to start the card and it might be worth siding with IT'S HOW WE ROLL (12). Having been hurdling, he's since returned to the flat sphere with two fair efforts for the grade, including at Windsor. Since his spell hurdling, he's changed headgear to cheekpieces which seem to have helped him post some consistent efforts. His last two runs have seen him staying on over 10 furlongs and the extra furlong today looks to be a good move for him to get more competitive. Ground doesn't seem to bother him and he can record a first success at the expense of Aria Rose.

17:35 - SWINLEY (6) is clear on our weight-adjusted ratings in this minor event and the return to five furlongs can suit. The form of his last start over six furlongs reads well with a few the horses ahead of him turning in improved efforts off the back of that. His second over C&D also reads well given the form of the third that day and he looks to have been found a good opportunity to record a first success. The standard isn't all that high so any potentially useful newcomers, most likely Bright Red, could also take a hand.

18:05 - The standard is set by ENDOWED (3), who on the switch to handicap company was unlucky not to win having been short of room before running on strongly and just running out of yards to collar the eventual winner - who since followed up in another nursery on Friday. That suggests the form is strong and he's been found a winnable opportunity now dropping back to minor company.

18:40 - Mukha Magic recorded an emphatic success over C&D last time out and looks to be well treated under a penalty but he was favoured by the way race panned out and might be vulnerable to GOLD STICK (3) on handicap debut for powerful connections. He broke his maiden tag in a minor event at Wetherby back in May and has since ran with credit in a minor event at Sandown. The step up in trip is a good move based on breeding and the return to a slower surface than last time can also help.

19:15 - In a field of rather exposed handicappers, two of the three-year-olds look worth siding with, of which TYPHOON TEN (5) is expected to be able to progress from his three starts before a possibly set back. His last minor contest over C&D saw him then need eight months off the track, suggesting there could have been a problem. He since returned to action at Nottingham in April and ran with credit over five furlongs. He's obviously a horse than can't take much racing given the three-month break again, but he could still progress, with his last performance catching the eye on the clock.

19:50 - Windsor's feature of their Monday nights culminates tonight in the Sprint Finale and this can go to MOLLS MEMORY (12) . Ed Walker operates at a 20% strike rate at Windsor and would have had this race in mind for his charge since her qualifying win in the middle of June. She beat the re-opposing Equitation that day by a cosy neck and given the handicapper only raised her 2 lbs and this is likely to be a run at a strong pace, this strong travelling filly can pick up the pieces late on. Progressive three-year-old Second Collection may give her most to think about.

20:20 - Mums Hope ran with credit last time back on a fast surface in a good quality Ascot handicap and could take a bit of beating dropped markedly in grade here but the forecast slower ground here presents a question mark and the lightly raced BRUYERE (8) could give her something to think about. Having been made a non-runner last week because the ground was too quick, she can resume progress off the back of her handicap debut when looking like the run was needed to win the last.
