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

"A subsequent 4 lb rise could well underestimate him..."

Timeform on The Defiant

The Defiant - 14:20 Windsor

The Defiant looks a sprint handicapper to follow in the coming weeks in these three-year-old events, after showing improved for to open his account at Wolverhampton last time, looking in full control throughout the race. A subsequent 4 lb rise could well underestimate him and he is taken to follow up now. Valentino Sunrise, Cobweb Catcher and Swiss Chime are others to note.

Days of Glory - 15:20 Windsor

Days of Glory took a big step forward when chasing home a Classic hopeful on his second start at Chelmsford in November and looks sure to win races this season with more improvement to come up in trip. Global Falcon made a promising start at Kempton and seems likely to have more to offer. London Eye is expected to leave his two-year-old form well behind in the months ahead.

Pilot Wings - 15:50 Windsor

Question marks surround the majority of these for one reason or another but Pilot Wings is something of an exception. Indeed, he showed more than enough when second in couple of AW handicaps for Roger Charlton last year to suggest that a race of this nature would be within his grasp. Essenaitch will be a threat if on-song following a break, while Bond Angel and Camakasi also enter calculations.
