Timeform take you through the card at Windsor on Monday evening.


18:15 - ESCAPE THE CITY (9) was only beaten two and a half lengths when fourth on her racecourse bow at Newbury 11 days ago and that form sets the standard of those with previous experience on Timeform ratings here. She is entitled to improve with that initial outing under her belt and, while there are several interesting debutants in opposition, Escape The City rates by far the most solid proposition with the Placepot in mind and is fancied to open her account at the second attempt.

18:45 - DI ALTA (4) makes most appeal in this second leg of the Placepot following her cracking effort in a Doncaster handicap that should prove to be strong form. Kath's Legacy has solid each-way claims at the very least, while course regular Marie Josephe has another good run in her.

19:15 - EVENING HILL (11) shaped well when second at Chepstow on Thursday, forced to deliver his challenge from further back than ideal in a slowly-run race and keeping on well under the circumstances to be beaten just a length and a quarter. The quick turnaround is an obvious concern, but Evening Hill looks sure to be thereabouts if arriving in the same mood and is fancied to resume winning ways with a defeat of Fast And Hot.

19:45 - ATLETICO (3) wasn't seen to best effect when four lengths fifth on his most recent outing at Ascot, doing by some way the best of those in the unfavoured group and certainly showing enough to suggest he is up to winning from this mark. Indeed, his best form leaves him 4 lb clear of the field on Timeform ratings here and he should prove extremely difficult to beat if building on the promise of last time under Andrea Atzeni, with Sandfrankskipsgo feared most of the remainder.

20:15 - STORMY BLUES (14) stepped up markedly on his debut when second at Nottingham and can go one better here. There is lots to like about his stablemate Adjacent on paper on debut and the betting should be revealing, while Fujaira Prince is another newcomer to note for Roger Varian.

20:45 - SNOW SQUAW (9) ran well over C&D last time, chasing home one who has gone in again since, and has obvious claims in this concluding leg of the Placepot if the fitting of cheekpieces has a positive effect. Both the other three-year-olds can have cases made for them, Beaconsfield on a piece of his two-year-old form having been given further respite from the handicapper, and Dragons Voice, after he ran well at Nottingham last time.
