On Saturday we go to Windsor for interesting looking Listed race at 3.20
WINDSOR 3.20 1M SUMMER STAKES LISTED RACE :
10 runners declared for Summer Stakes at Windsor on good/firm ground .The three main contenders on official ratings are Complicit , Short Squeeze & Kodi Bear .
COMPLICIT : Consistent sort ,winning 6 from 18 (five wins on poly track ) Has shown some decent form on turf this season, finishing fair third in G3 Diomed Stakes at Epsom last time.Also finished good second over C&D in Royal Windsor listed stakes ,behind Shifting Star.Solid each-way claims .
SHORT SQUEEZE : Won 4 from 17 on turf .Had some useful form last season ,including winning 1 mile class two handicap at York off mark 102 ,also finished good second in 1 mile handicap at Meydan in February off mark 107 .However was well beaten fifth in this race last year.
KODI BEAR : Lightly raced three year old ,had some very useful form as two year old winning 7 furlong listed race at Ascot in July and then finishing excellent second in G1 Dewhurst stakes at Newmarket in October on soft ground .Obvious claims if staying this longer trip .
VERDICT : Interesting race that clearly revolves around Kodi Bear ,who's head and shoulders above these rivals on last years Dewhurst form ,though there is question mark over this longer trip on ground this quick .Could easily outclass this field ,though odds around 7-4, look short enough on first start for 8 months .
At the prices COMPLICIT looks the each-way value at around 6-1 ,has put in two solid efforts this season ,including finishing good second over this course & distance in listed race in May. Looks the bet against short priced Kodi Bear .
