It's a new week and Alan Thompson returns to the tipping chair with bets at Redcar and Windsor...
"if he gets his head in front over this trip he should be very tough to pass"
Lincoln Red can get his head back in front today
Olly Williams runs Lincoln Red in this sprint and after finishing second on both his starts this year I think he might be able to get his head in front today. His first start of the year was after a 257-day break when he finished second over seven furlongs at Yarmouth, he was then dropped to six furlongs on his latest outing where despite being headed a furlong out, be battled on bravely and wasn't beaten far.
I expect Ben Curtis to get him out handy and sit behind the likely pace setter Highjacked and given that he stays further, if he gets his head in front over this trip he should be very tough to pass. He gets in here off the same as his last two starts which is also his last winning mark.
Queen Of The Sea can rule over Windsor tonight
Godolphin's unexposed filly Queen Of The Sea is upped in trip for her handicap debut and could certainly enjoy it. There is a huge amount of stamina in her family, being a daughter of See The Stars out of Montjeu and she goes handicapping off an attractive opening rating. Saeed bin Suroor's string have been in superb form in recent weeks and this filly is bred to improve substantially on what she's shown thus far.
She has been third on all three of her starts to date, but she has been unfortunate in running into some decent types. She retains the cheekpieces that helped her run well to finish third of eight at Salisbury last time out and she gets the tongue tie back on as well today. They are certainly trying to help her with as much equipment as they can but I just think when the penny drops, and that could easily be today, she will be too good for these.
