Through The Card: Windsor, Monday 6 August
Timeform take you through the card at Windsor on Monday evening...
"He certainly showed enough to suggest that he is up to winning a race of this nature..."
Timeform on Cuban Heel
17:30 - MISS M (2) had plenty in hand over C&D a week ago and a 6 lb penalty might not be enough to prevent her from following up in this opening leg of the Placepot. Doctor Jazz appeals as a likely improver now handicapping, while Rupert's Lass showed promise on her handicap bow here in the spring and could have more to offer now switching to a longer trip back from a break.
18:00 - LIVELY LYDIA (8) is taken to build on her promising second start here a fortnight ago and can get off the mark in what doesn't look a strong maiden for the track. Dreaming of Love shaped well in the same race and should last longer now. Dawn Affair should also make her presence felt.
18:30 - DASCHAS (12) resumed his progress to land a third win of the year at Ascot last month, hitting the front over a furlong out and responding well to pressure to score by three quarters of a length. A further 3 lb rise in the weights makes life tougher here, but the fine form of the Stuart Williams yard remains an ongoing recommendation, and already a winner over C&D in May, Daschas appears to have plenty in his favour as he attempts to follow up from last time, with Harry Bentley taking over in the saddle, too.
19:00 - CUBAN HEEL (3) shaped much better than the bare result when sixth on his most recent outing at Sandown, enduring trouble in-running from two furlongs out and doing well under the circumstances to be beaten just two and a half lengths (finished with running left). He certainly showed enough to suggest that he is up to winning a race of this nature, and 1 lb lower than last time here, today could finally be his day for Clive Cox and Adam Kirby, who have combined to good effect at this track in the past.
19:30 - DOCTOR WONDERFUL (7) is marginally preferred for Placepot purposes to fellow lightly-raced handicap debutants Le Maharajah and Whitlock. Clive Cox's charge completely misfired at Chepstow but is better judged on his encouraging effort at Leicester previously where he shaped as though this trip will help unlock improvement. Le Maharajah's opening mark looks a fair one and he is feared most.
20:00 - CERAMIST (3) shaped with plenty of promise when third on her debut at Nottingham last season, held back by inexperience but getting the hang of things late on (never nearer than at the finish). She should do better with that outing under her belt and gets the nod here ahead of another highly promising type in Wohileh. Hulcote has shown a good deal of ability in her two starts and should be in the mix, too, while Daisy Chain has each-way claims.
20:30 - UNITED KINGDOM (5) could be worth chancing in the finale, making his handicap debut from what looks a fair mark. Harrison Stickle and Spin Top should both go well again after winning last time out, while Staffa will likely have her supporters with the Stewards' Cup-winning Jason Watson up.
