720 Windsor


This young gelding has performed pretty consistently for Mulholland yard since trading hands last year (5 runs, 2 wins, 2 places). Finished second off this mark in a class 5 contest in August of last year so weight shouldn't be a problem. He won last time he attempted this distance over at Chepstow and returns from a lengthy break which didn't bother him when winning on the flat last year with today's jockey A Kirby. Mr Kirby booked for the second time today and boasts 20.59% strike rate riding at this venue (34 runs, 7 wins, 7 places). Connections success is fantastic when teaming up (19 runs, 6 wins, 3 places - 31.58% strike rate, +13.63 P/L to £1 stake) and surely will be looking to further their success today.

Can't pick my nose this race after such a good first race...the highs and the lows I guess. I'll take a bit of Mick Channon's magic dust and go for Iconic Belle, who is axctually still winless in 15 races under rules but despite that this 4yo filly has some consistent performances including a good 3rd at Doncaster on soft ground recently. The handicap mark is also coming down from the mid-70's where it started last season and to top it all, Channon sticks on the in-form Andrea Atzeni.

Windsor 7.20


Unlike many of these this 5 year old gelding by Excellent Art does know how to win and clearly gets on well with today's claimer
Competitive off this mark over further on the AW and handles cut on turf so should find today's conditions to his liking

Has had a break since January and has run well first time back on previous occassions

Trainer Neil Mulholland ...... .... ..... ..... ..... ....> Jockey Adam Kirby

A Neil Mulholland trained 5 year old who has has 9 races on the flat winning twice and has finished in the frame twice. He won 2 races on the bounce when switching stables to the Neil Mulholland yard in June last year, winning on his debut at Chepstow over 1m 4f on good going, ridden by today's jockey Adam Kirby, then followed up at Yarmouth over 1m 3 1/2f on good to firm going both in class 6 handicaps. He then finished 2nd in a class 5 handicap again at Chepstow over 1m 4f on good to soft going. His last 2 races have been over the hurdles.He reverting back to the flat in a class 6 handicap over 1m 3 1/2f on good to soft going, after a 198 day break. This gelding is having his first run this year, he is a winner over this distance and acts on the going, he has run well when fresh, jockey 1 win from 1 ride on him, has a good e/w chance in this race tonight.

Please forgive me for dropping out of this competition. I have a lot of personal stuff going on and am going away at the beginning of May, so will re-join in the second competition in May.

Good luck to all participants.

She has won two races from one mile to one mile four furlongs both on soft ground the latest on her debut run for trainer Ian Williams at Doncaster keeping on well in the closing stages to beat the D O Meara trained Ingleby Hollow by 3/4 length so with todays sounder surface a slight concern she should still play a part in the finish with Luke Catton taking a valuable 7 pounds off

windsor 7.20

iconic belle

Probably last post for a week Gman as off up the Orinoco for a short break and wifi might definitely be lacking.

With the Mick Channon stable in fine form it might be hard to ignore his 4yr old filly Iconic Belle. Still a maiden after 15 efforts on both AW and turf but with the extremely good breeding she should be able to turn it around. Been running over 1m 2f to 1m 4f recently, mainly on the AW and posted a couple of decent 2nds but the 3rd on turf at Doncaster two races ago in an apprentice handicap suggests that with the right jockey on board she has the ability to run very well in this. Andrea Atzeni is the man on board today so very hopeful.

Has been running over much further than this over hurdles and on ground mainly heavy, and looking at its last 3 runs, a drop in trip could be just what is required as well as better handling, which it will get tonight. Forecast at around 16's which is pretty decent value in a very tricky race.

Trainer and jockey both in excellent recent form
Fitness and distance not a n issue
Very consistent and good recent form
Has as good a chance as any in a very tricky competitive race
Can only be hopeful for some points :D

Windsor can be a little bit of a tricky ride and therefore I think course form carries that little bit extra merit here. Not sure if that opinion is a blessing or a curse here as there is only one runner with a course victory to his name! Betsalottie only has one turf win to his name, here in October, however, since then he has gone on to score on the AW as well so his form cannot really be questioned.

Slightly disappointing last time out suggests the handicapper may now have his measure, but a return to Windsor, with regular rider taking a useful 3lbs off, could eek out enough against this decidedly mixed bag of a field.

Windsor 7.20

Strictly Art....from Alan Bailey yard the 5yo has won four times from 7f to 2m on good ground and on the all-weather. He won his last turf race last August last year at Ripon 1m 3f good class 6 race off 59 and followed that up with a month break before going on AW circuit by having six runs at various tracks and finished the year off with three 2nd place finishes and a win in between those 2nd place finish ,

He had two run this year to finish off the AW campaign both poor runs but yard gave him 94 days break and comes here fresh and back on turf , He's ran here once last year and finished 5th in class 5 race over todays distance , He drops back to class 6 and off 63 mark with Jessica Cooley claiming 7lbs off with last turf win off 59 he's 3lbs better off and could finish in frame

19.20 Windsor
The horse has previously won over the distance. It has had a spin on the all-weather which should have blown away the winter cobwebs. Its last two outings of last season's campaign were in higher level 4 and Class 5 events---this is a Class 6. It won the Class 5 over 11 furlongs of soft going at Goodwood off a mark of 60, winning by a comfortable 2.75 lengths. It then finished second in the Class 4 over 12f at Beverley on soft, and though beaten 3.25 lengths, it was in the lead until headed a furlong out. That was off today's mark of 63
