Busy start to the week with three claiming races on Monday ,though I have no interest in 2 year old claiming race at Redcar which looks an impossible race with half the field making there debut's .
The 12 furlong classified claiming stakes at 2.15 Wolverhampton also looks very tough and amateur riders races are never easy to predict .
Going concentrate on the 6 furlong claiming stakes at Windsor's evening fixture .8 runners go to post for what looks interesting sprint claimer .
6.10 WINDSOR 6F CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 5 :
Nine runners declared for 6 furlong claiming stakes at Windsor .On official handicap ratings this looks quite competitive race with the four main contenders being Falasteen ,Efistorm ,Polar Annie & Scarlet Rocks
FALASTEEN : Decent sprint handicapper in 2010/11 winning class 3 handicap at Epsom off mark 85 and finishing second in class 2 handicap at York off mark 92 .Has looked very disappointing on his last two starts in handicap company and now drops into claiming company .
EFISTORM : Prolific winner over the years winning 16 times on turf and has excellent record here at Windsor winning 5 from 8 .Bounced back to form last week winning handicap at Kempton .Goes particularly well for Hayley Turner having won on the horse seven times .
POLAR ANNIE : Front runner who did well in 2011 winning three handicaps at Chepstow, the last win coming over 1 mile .Looks well treated at the weights and will be suited dropping into claiming company for first time .
SCARLET ROCKS : Dual course winner here at Windsor for David Evans,though struggled after changing stables in October .Now back with David Evans and should improve for her first run of the season.
VERDICT : Falasteen would take plenty beating if reproducing last seasons handicap form ,though taking big drop in class here, has not looked the same horse this season .Looked very disappointing on his last two starts and faces no easy task carrying 9 stone 9lb .
Polar Annie drops into claiming company for first time ,though all her best form has been over 7 furlongs and mile .The drop back to 6 furlongs has to be concern having not won over the distance for nearly 4 years.
Scarlet Rocks should be thereabouts having shown plenty of form here at Windsor in the past and won similar contest over C&D in October,though that was her only win from her last 25 starts.
The veteran EFISTORM is just preferred having such good course record here at Windsor with 5 wins from 8 starts .Has already won twice this season in handicaps at Lingfield & Kempton.Odds around 10-3 look very fair each-way value in 8 runner race
