Tonight's racing: three horses to look out for this evening

Mark Johnston: holds strong claims with Love Oasis at Ayr
1 of 1

If it's Monday it has to be Windsor, and the Berkshire course hosts one of two evening fixtures, starting at 5.40 and available to watch on At The Races. The other card is at Ayr, shown on Racing UK, with the first race due off at 5.55

Love Oasis
6.25 Ayr

Croquembouche
7.10 Windsor

Blitz
8.10 Windsor

Love Oasis 6.25 Ayr

All eyes will be on the start as Love Oasis was slowly away at Hamilton on Thursday before staying on well to go close in second. That was the second time in two outings this season the Mark Johnston-trained filly has made the frame and she would not be winning out of turn. PJ McDonald takes over from Joe Fanning in the saddle and should be looking to make good use of the daughter of Oasis Dream, who races off the same mark as last week.

Croquembouche7.10 Windsor

As a confirmed front-runner who has contested over 50 races and always runs his heart out, Croquembouche has gained a following over the years and his popularity will only increase if he can register a ninth success in this handicap. He ran with credit over course and distance on his seasonal return before tiring on rain-softened ground at Chester last time. The return to a faster surface and the booking of highly touted 7lb claimer Rossa Ryan makes the Ed de Giles-trained eight-year-old a knocking each-way bet.

Blitz8.10 Windsor

Clive Cox has proved a master with sprinters and speedy filly Blitz looks interesting dropping down in grade in the 5f handicap. Formerly trained by Johnny Murtagh for Qatar Racing, the three-year-old has yet to score for her new trainer in three starts, but has shown promise on each occasion. She was not beaten far in a better race at Sandown last time and looks capable of improving Cox's 20 per cent strike-rate at the course in the last five seasons.
