Windsor 9.00

Windsor 9.00 1 Fit For The Job @ 6/1 / 12 Its How We Roll @ 16/1 (Lads/Coral/Skybet odds to 4th)

a mile trip at Windsor and a competitive little heat although I do think there is some deadwood
in here. Shifting Star is a great benchmark horse for a race like this as it always runs it race, John Bridger has a
fantastic Course record here (and at Lingfield and Brighton) but after winning last time, he may mow need a few
runs to come back to a winning handicap mark and the Trainer is astute enough to run him here off a big weight
to start that process!. On pure form FIT FOR THE JOB looks to have every chance or overturning a recent loss
to Shifting Star and anything that's beats SS is going to be right in contention. The booking of Fran Berry and the
introduction of cheekpieces, used to good effect in Ireland, adds to confidence. I see Ross Raith Rover as a live
danger, right grade after a step up to Grade 4 did not work but just a nagging doubt about the jockey as this is
a horse that has to be delivered to perfection, certainly though one for your placepot.

The other pick is ITS HOW WE ROLL, as always a nod to the fact that we have a share in a   couple of
horses with John Spearing and the usual caveat that nothing here is "inside information".  What is clear
is that the Yard has had 6-8 weeks of consistent runners following a return to form in the early Spring
after a very poor spell in most of 2016. A lot of things can go wrong in a yard, it can be a virus, poor
hay or just the fact that all the horses are poorly handicapped. I always look for smaller yards whose horses
are well handicapped and in form and this one ticks the boxes at the moment. The price of 16/1 is to my
analytical mind too high; I think the horse will finish in the first 5-6 at least. If you look back to its stable
debut here it finished 4th, the horse who came 3rd has franked that form and the winner Sir Plato has
subsequently won off a mark of 76 and is improving. ITS HOW WE ROLL is a pound lower here and I
know John turns to Tom Marquand regularly if he is available, (he has ridden one of ours and comes
across as not only a very good jockey bit also a personable and fine young man) I really have more
than a hunch that this horse could cause a surprise here - note 3 Bookies paying odds to 4th place
