Timeform on Passion And Glory

Back
Lost In Time - 18:00 Windsor

This looks ripe for Lost In Time, who stepped up on his debut form when third in a Glorious Goodwood maiden and remains open to further improvement. Written Broadcast failed to fire in that race, beating just one home, but he showed enough prior to that to make him of strong interest. Three Fans also commands respect, while Arabian Dream, Bryn Du and Skontonovski should all do better in time.

Lay
Indian Raj - 18:30 Windsor

Indian Raj is sure to be popular having ran out a well-supported winner of a handicap at Sandown last time, taking advantage of a drop in the weights to resume winning ways, showing a better attitude than the second. He hasn't stood much racing for a five-year-old, though, and could be worth opposing with that in mind. Look Surprised won well over this C&D last time and looks a more solid proposition.

Smart Stat
Passion And Glory - 19:30 Windsor

24% - Saeed bin Suroor's strike rate with horses running over 10f+

Passion And Glory shaped with plenty of promise when finishing runner-up to a potentially smart sort on debut at Newbury in July, but didn't progress as expected when only third to the same rival (on worse terms) over a mile and a half at Newmarket last time. He was hampered and bumped inside the final furlong on that occasion, and is best not judged too harshly on that performance. Passion And Glory remains with potential and ought to be able to get his head in front here.
