2.20 Sky Bet Best Odds Guaranteed Handicap (6) 5f21y

Timeform Top Rated:
81 1. MAYGOLD Ed Walker Liam Keniry
80 6. G EYE JOE James Given Luke Morris
77 3. MARIETTA ROBUSTI Mick Channon Silvestre De Sousa

Analyst's Verdict:
You get the feeling G Eye Joe remains with a bigger effort in his locker back on turf and he could be worth chancing in the hope he handles conditions. The ground won't be an issue for Give Em A Clump, who is interesting back from a gelding operation in re-fitted headgear. Maygold was on a high when last seen and rates a big player also.


2.50 EBF Novice Stakes (5) 5f21y

Timeform Top Rated:
No ratings for this race

Analyst's Verdict:
This will be a test for these youngsters and the betting will prove informative. Awake In Asia is the most expensive in the field and David Evans has typically been quick off the block with his 2-y-os. He could be the way to go, ahead of Solesmes and Blown By Wind, both of whom also represent yards whose juveniles have been showing up well.


3.20 Crown And Cushion Eton Novice Stakes (5) 1¼m

Timeform Top Rated:
101p 7. SEVENNA STAR John Gosden Robert Havlin
96p 1. KING'S PROCTOR Mark Johnston William Buick
83p 2. MORNING SKYE Hugo Palmer James Doyle

Analyst's Verdict:
Potentially a good 3-y-o contest and Dante/Derby entry Sevenna Star is taken to build on the promise of his 2-y-o runs and make a successful return with the step up in trip sure to suit. Previous winners King's Proctor and Morning Skye have to be respected, while Ishallak is an interesting newcomer being a half-brother to a useful one who thrived on heavy ground.


3.50 MPM Flooring Handicap (5) 1¼m

Timeform Top Rated:
94 2. FAST AND HOT Richard Hannon Rossa Ryan (5)
92 6. ESSENAITCH David Evans John Egan
92 7. MAROC Nikki Evans Luke Morris

Analyst's Verdict:
Bombero is a winner on heavy ground and has returned in good heart. He's taken to land the spoils. Fast And Hot is doubtless capable of a big run back at Windsor but may not want it to get too testing. Essenaitch is another who enjoyed a good time of it here last year and has to be respected.


4.20 Sky Bet Windsor Sprint Series Handicap (Qualifier) (3) 6f12y

Timeform Top Rated:
109 2. MOBSTA Mick Channon Silvestre De Sousa
108 10. BAHAMIAN DOLLAR David Evans David Egan (3)
107 4. MAJOR PUSEY John Gallagher Hector Crouch

Analyst's Verdict:
Mobsta made a highly eye-catching return at Doncaster last month, finishing well having had a troubled passage. Back under De Sousa he can strike for the first time since winning a Group 2 in Ireland nearly 2 years ago. Glory of Paris is in good heart and ran well in the mud at Bath last time, while Poet's Princess is capable of a big run if ready to go on her comeback.


4.50 Sky Bet Britain's Most Popular Online Bookmaker Handicap (5) 1m31y

Timeform Top Rated:
82 7. TEARDROP ISLAND David Evans John Egan
80 3. RAINBOW JAZZ Mark Usher Nicola Currie (5)
79 8. LADY ALAVESA Gay Kelleway Martin Dwyer

Analyst's Verdict:
Several potential improvers here, including Icart Point, who represents last year's winning trainer. He gets the vote over Mom Said and Unbridled Spirit who boast similar profiles. Lady Alavesa could be the pick of those with more experience.


5.25 Sky Bet Top Price Promise Handicap (5) 1m31y

Timeform Top Rated:
93 4. BAKHT A RAWAN Stuart Kittow Silvestre De Sousa
92 6. HELFIRE Hughie Morrison Robert Winston
92 9. HAWRIDGE GLORY Rod Millman Oisin Murphy

Analyst's Verdict:
Bakht A Rawan has a lengthy absence to overcome, but has gone well fresh in the past and is proven on heavy ground. He could make a winning return back under Silvestre De Sousa. Spanish History, Zlatan and Wicker can all figure if handling conditions.
