Monday’s Racing Tip: Tides can Reach the top at Windsor

A winner! How fantastic. And a nice change from the norm some cynics will say. Yesterday snapped a bit of a losing run of late with Western Hymn showing that he’s all class by winning the Prix Eugene Adam (Grand Prix de Maisons-Laffitte) yesterday in very impressive fashion.

He failed to handle Epsom when finding plenty of troubling in-running but still ran with great ability to get as close as he did to Australia and Kingston Hill, who have shown the form to be very strong since and the form was once again franked here.

William Buick adopted patient tactics on the Robin Geffen and Rachel Hood-owned three-year-old, who moved into contention from last on the bridle before effortlessly going through the gears to drive away from his rivals.

Godolphin’s Army Bulletin chased him home in second, with Rod Millman’s stable star Master Carpenter far from disgraced in third and our gamble at 2/1 was landed. It will be interesting if he takes on Australia on a decent track before the end of the season because he has a turn of foot to rival the Aidan O’Brien superstar and could upset the applecart.


Moving onto today, and Tides Reach is best bet material in the Win £10,000,000 On Betdaq Colossus Handicap at Windsor.

Trainer Roger Charlton may have let us down a bit with Al Kazeem on Saturday, mixing up his words when claiming the horse looked as good as ever pre-race before seeing him getting beat and claiming he was a lot heavier than ideal, but he can usually be trusted to deliver his horses to their absolute maximum at Windsor. The yard is also red hot at the moment having sent out eight winners from its last 22 runners.

In the last four seasons he has had eight winners from 31 handicap runners at the Berkshire course, suggesting that when he has a good thing, he likes to pitch it in here.

The selection was last seen finishing a solid third last month over this course and distance in a race that arguably is a little stronger than the one she finds herself competing in today.

The performance probably deserves upgrading as she did easily the best of those who were held up in a race in which the first two home were in those positions throughout.

Get on her chances with a two point win stake and hopefully this run will continue.

Profit and Loss Record P/L:+103.77
