Teaplanter fresh from a 7/1 winner on Sunday looks ahead to the Monday card at Windsor and has a bet in the final race of the meeting, with an improving filly of interest.
This looks a competitive contest and is being contested by a number of horses that look open to plenty of improvement now that they are stepping up in trip or now that they have managed to get their head in front on their handicap debuts.
Voice Control is a puzzling favourite with this in mind, as he has been disappointing so far, including last time at Beverley and although his pedigree suggests that he will improve for this step up to nearly 12 furlongs, the progeny of Scottish Stage have so far failed to progress through their career and he is not one that we would be interested in at 11/4.
Stolen Story won with more in hand than the margin suggested at this venue last time and he relished the step up to this distance, while Fit the Bill is progressing nicely and might be capable of defying a further hike in the weights.
Peace Prize was another to impress at Nottingham last time, but the horse that looks a little bit of value here is the Ed Walker trained Vanishing. Despite wearing cheekpieces, there is no question mark about her attitude and after showing promise on her 3 starts as a 2 year old, she won nicely on her handicap debut at Redcar last month, when staying on strongly under Antonio Fresu over 10 furlongs.
That was not the strongest contest in the world and it leaves her with something to find against these rivals off a 5lb higher mark. However she is bred to very much appreciate the further step up in trip to just shy of 12 furlongs and she was doing all of her best work in the closing stages of that Redcar contest, winning cosily in the end.
This is a competitive contest so we will keep stakes low, but Vanishing is worth a small interest to continue her improvement at 8/1 with William Hill or Stan James.
0.5 points each way Vanishing at 8/1 with William Hill and Stan James.
