There is racing from Windsor on Monday

Timeform pick out three bets from the UK on Bank Holiday Monday.


Pactolus - 15:45 Windsor

The handicapper has taken a chance in letting Pactolus race off a 7 lb lower mark compared to his all-weather mark, and if he can continue the good form he has shown over the winter now back on a surface which he clearly also acts on, he could be the answer here. Likely to race prominetly from a good draw - something which is important at this track - he looks a solid option.

Carnageo - 16:50 Beverley

Though he was tight enough in the betting on his return at Doncaster at the beginning of April, Carnageo ultimately shaped as though he'd come on for the run, having threatened briefly two furlongs out (touched 2.64 in-running on Betfair) before fading into eighth. His profile last season was progressive, and he ended the campaign with a good win at Nottingham. It is hoped that he can regain the progressive thread with his reappearance under his belt.

Lime And Lemon - 16:55 Windsor

Hell Yeah is an intriguing runner, having not been seen since winning a maiden at Kempton in 2015. He is open to improvement on just his second start, but with he is entitled to need this, and preference instead is for Lime And Lemon, who shaped well on her return at Doncaster last time. That was just her third start for Clive Cox and, still relatively lightly raced, she is worth chancing to improve again here with that under her belt.
