Tonight's racing: three runners who catch the eye from Windsor and Ayr
Windsor and Ayr may be poles apart geographically, but they provide the racing action forMonday evening. Here are three runners to look out for
There was an emotional win for Formidable Kitt's half-brother Arthur Kitt at Haydock recently, as he was the last foal of the same owner's Royal Ascot-winning dam Ceiling Kitty.
There is an air of unfinished business about this three-year-old, too, as she was highly tried after a debut win at Newmarket last year.She tried to get across from an ordinary draw upped to 6f at Chester last time but makes her second handicap start back over 5f. There need not be any excuses this time.
At Redcar last week, Jessie Allan delivered on the 41st time of asking to land a maiden handicap for her patient connections. Now, back at a local track for trainer Jim Goldie and owner Robert McLachlan, she is out for a quick follow up. But no one could accuse Goldie and McLachlan of being greedy.
She runs under a penalty this time, but is effectively only 2lb higher and faces a group of fillies, which would normally be a downward step but that is probably mitigated against the maidens she beat last time.
Ridden by Corey Madden in an amateurs' race last time, tonight promising apprentice Jamie Gormley takes over.
Also on the hunt for a quick double is Hey Pretty, a winner at Fairyhouse last week.
That was just a fifth start for the gelding, trained by John McConnell in County Meath, with the application of cheekpieces also helping him to leap forward on what was just his second handicap start.
Last week was also his first encounter with quick ground, which he gets again this evening and that can only help. Just about the only unknown iswhether he has travelled so far for a race before, but for a horse this unexposed that is hardly surprising or of deep concern.
