On Bank Holiday Monday ,we go to West Berkshire for interesting looking 10 furlong handicap at Windsor .
4.00 WINDSOR 1M 2F (0-85) CLASS 4 HANDICAP :
9 runners declared for 0-85 handicap at Windsor on good/firm ground .The three main contenders are Mythical Madness , Balmoral Castle & Franco's Secret .
MYTHICAL MADNESS :Lightly raced four year old . Won maiden over course & distance at Windsor in good style ,though been bit disappointing in three handicaps since .Should be suited returning to this 10 furlong trip,though mark 84 still looks shade high .
BALMORAL CASTLE : C&D winner ,with good strike rate on turf,winning 6 out 16 ,including winning class three handicap at Goodwood off mark 80 .Finished fair fourth on seasonal reappearance in strong looking class 3 handicap at Newbury last time .Looks fairly treated off mark 83, and goes particularly well for 5LB claimer Ned Curtis .
FRANCO'S SECRET : Good record on poly track winning 3 out 10 ,only raced twice on turf ,though ran promising fifth in class three handicap at Newbury last time ,staying on well in closing stages .Looks open to improvement over this 10 furlong trip .
VERDICT : BALMORAL CASTLE looks solid here after running promising fourth,in much stronger race at Newbury last time.Should come on for that run, first since September .Looks to have ideal conditions here, and can land this class 4 handicap .Odds around 7-2 look fair value .
Franco's Secret looks the main danger after finishing eyecatching fifth at Newbury last time ,though has bit to find with Balmoral Castle on that form ,still looks open to improvement over this trip .
