There is a strong card at Windsor on Monday night, and that is where we head for today's attempt at the Placepot...

18:20 - Of those with previous experience, Little Voice sets the standard, and although she may have been slightly flattered by her sixth in the Queen Mary, where she was mainly picking off beaten horses near the end, she should be hard to beat in this company.

18:50 - Godolphin look to have a strong hand in this maiden. Liberality showed plenty on debut last time at Wolverhampton and should appreciate this stiffer test of stamina based on breeding. The form of Yours Truly's first outing at Bath has since been franked, and, with improvement likely based on her yard, she should also be included.

19:20 - Favourite Thames Knight has plenty going for him as a three-year-old on open handicap debut, but there doesn't seem to be an awful lot of pace on, and it could prove safer to side with Shell Bay, who was suited by racing prominently when winning last time out and could be seen to similar effect here.

19:50 - Hoofalong is very well handicapped on old form and although he has a poor win ratio, he has put in plenty of solid performances from much higher marks, including when winning on his only previous visit to this track, and with Harry Bentley taking over from a claimer he is expected to go close here.

20:20 - This step up in trip should suit Sweet Selection on pedigree, and if she can build on her already solid start in handicaps, she should be hard to beat here. Alan King's Mystery Code is also open to improvement upped to this trip and has place claims.

20:50 - Manolito was well backed when shaping as if needing the run on seasonal debut at this track in June, and looks a big threat to all here making her open handicap debut on just her second start as a three-year-old, having shown plenty of ability at two. A gelding operation could help Molten Lava settle better, and he will have strong claims if doing so.

Recommendations:
14:00- 6
14:30- 12,15
15:05- 5
15:40- 12
16:10- 1,5
16:45- 7,8
= 8 lines
