Three more horse racing fixtures go to post in England and Scotland on Monday and we give our best bets for Ayr, Windsor and Kempton.

A new week of horse racing action kicks off on Monday with three scheduled fixtures taking place which will see flat racing going to post on turf at Ayr and Windsor; while there is an evening meeting on the all-weather at Kempton.

Having enjoyed some success with last week’s racing tips we’re looking for more winners on Monday to kick off the new week and we reveal our best bets for Ayr, Windsor and Kempton.


12:40 Ayr – Ayrshire Cancer Support Handicap Cl6 (4yo+ 0-55) 6f

DODGY BOB took advantage of the enforced break to return to action with a win at Hamilton over subsequent winner Devil’s Angel, scoring by just over one length.

The Royal Applause gelding possibly just found the ground too testing next time at Ayr but he still ran well enough to finish just under one length third behind Macs Blessing and racing from the same mark here he could be worth chancing to quickly bounce back to winning ways.

Michael Mullineaux’s charge has won from higher marks than this in the past and this doesn’t look the strongest of heats so he can make his presence felt and no surprise if he were to go close.

1:35 Windsor – Visit Handicap Cl3 (4yo+ 0-95)

BELATED BREATH has a decent record here, winning once and making the frame on both defeated starts at the track; Hughie Morrison’s charge is taken to get back on the scoresheet and the Bated Breath mare can go well.

Her latest win came at Salisbury last September where she beat Goodnight Girl by a half-length although she wasn’t able to back it up next time at Newmarket when finishing down the field beind Chil Chil.

Having made her reappearance in a Listed contest at Haydock, she should strip fitter for her return and this is easier than that race so she could well bounce back returning to the handicap ranks and running from her last winning mark.

Partnered by Oisin Murphy who has steered the Bated Breath mare to six of her ten wins, the pair can combine to deliver another big run and they can collect this prize.

Jockey Oisin Murphy can strike a winner at Windsor.

1:45 Ayr – QTS Investors In Young People Handicap Cl6 (4yo+ 0-55) 7f

GREAT COLACI made a winning return to action from more than a year off the track when scoring at Newcastle last month and Gina Bonas’ charge showed no ill effects following that score to chase home Moretti at Thirsk seven days ago.

The Sulamani gelding was beaten just over one length, perhaps just given too much to do; but he stuck well to his task without matching the winner’s effort and racing off the same mark here he’s likely to go well again.

If continuing in similar vein then every chance he can get back to winning ways in a relatively poor contest and he should go close.

6:10 Kempton – Unibet 3 Uniboosts A Day Handicap (Div I) Cl4 (3yo 0-78) 7f

THE BLUE BOWER arrives in search of a hat-trick of wins and the Morpheus filly is taken to land the three-timer and preserve her unbeaten record since joining Jonathan Portman’s yard.

She had shown some progressive form towards the end of her time with Sue Smith, finishing runner-up in starts here and at Chelmsford prior to making the switch and she has since registered wins at Wolverhampton over this trip and here over six furlongs latest.

Although there was only a neck to spare over Silent Agenda last time, she appeared to score a shade readily and that runner-up has won since to give the form a boost.

A 5lbs rise in the weights demands more from her given this is a slight rise in class she tackles now; but she has looked progressive of late and could find another jolt of improvement to follow up and land her hat-trick with Josephine Gordon back in the saddle.

6:45 Kempton – Unibet 3 Uniboosts A Day Handicap (Div II) Cl4 (3yo 0-78) 7f

VASARI might just have needed his return to action at Newmarket last month, beating only one home behind Ivatheengine; but Sir Michael Stoute’s charge is taken to improve with that run under his belt and he could prove a different proposition now.

The Muhaarar gelding had shaped with some ability in a number of starts in maiden and novice events last term, and his recent reappearance saw him tackling a handicap for the first time. Despite beating only one rival he was only around three lengths adrift of the winner at the line and he can do better now.

It is too soon to write him off and Jim Crowley takes over in the sadddle; he could progress as many from this yard do and no surprise to see him posting a bold bid here.
