Timeform pick out their three best bets from Windsor on Monday...

"Now 4 lb better off with that rival, he is taken to emerge on top this time..."

Timeform on Louie de Palma

Wilbury Twist - 18:30 Windsor

A winning handicap debut could be on the cards for Wilbury Twist, who figures on a potentially handy opening mark and represents a leading, in-form yard. She is bred to be better than this mark and strikes as the type to take off in handicaps. This isn't as competitive as the Ascot contest Bubble And Squeak was pitched into last time and she has to be considered, while the well-bred Sharp Practice is surely capable of better than she's shown to date and Daybreak also needs a look.

Louie de Palma - 19:00 Windsor

Louie de Palma stamina was stretched over seven furlongs at Ascot last time and he is interesting back down in trip, having chased home Silent Echo over this C&D on penultimate start (second run following a mammoth absence). Now 4 lb better off with that rival, he is taken to emerge on top this time. Mountain Peak is also high on the shortlist and Open Wide needs considering with Ryan Moore aboard.

Tylery Wonder - 19:30 Windsor

A decisive C&D winner eight days ago, Tylery Wonder will prove tough to beat under a penalty if in a similar mood. That isn't certain given his overall profile but it's a chance worth taking, particularly bearing in mind that the majority of his rivals have something to prove for one reason or another. Harry Hurricane will be a threat if on-song, while Roundabout Magic and Outrage also have claims.
