Windsor Races Betting: Tom Lee's Monday Meeting Tips


Dry with sunny intervals and a top temperature of 21 degrees celsius is the forecast for tonight's after work jamboree at Royal Windsor, as the track stages its much-loved weekly Monday night six race card, with a kick-off time of 5.35pm. 

The summer may be whizzing by at something approaching warp speed, but the ever present Monday instalments are a bedrock for punters looking to get the week off to a solid start, and we'll try and do exactly that with a couple of wagers on this evening's action.

Unibet sponsor a huge amount of races at the track, and it's in two of those - firstly the extended mile 'Unibet Welcomes Our Norweigan Friends Fillies' Handicap - run at 7.05pm, that we'll try and do some damage.

The market has spoken in favour of Roger Varian's Doncaster maiden winner Bella Lulu, as she tries her luck in handicap company for the first time off a mark of 81.

She looked good when winning at Donny and should be suited by this step up in distance, but this is a very different proposition trying to mix it with far more streetwise sorts, and at triple her odds it could pay to look at a value alternative in top weight Lady Marl.

Trained by in-form Gary Moore, who enjoyed four winners in just two days last week, she is very adept at putting her head in front and is the winner of six of her 18 starts.

Better still, Lady Marl simply loves it at Windsor, bagging all three of her wins on turf at this track.

What's more, all of those victories have come over this course and distance, giving her a phenomenal 60% strike rate in extended mile races at Windsor.

She's got a bit more to find lugging top weight tonight, but she has plenty in her favour and looks tempting at Unibet's early price of 6/1

Half an hour later we'll try and initiate a quickfire double, taking aim in the five furlong Download The Unibet Racing App Handicap at 7.35pm.

The one who catches my eye in a typically open sprint is John Gallgher's Major Pusey, who has been running some gallant races in defeat and definitely deserves to win one of these.  

On target at Goodwood in May, he has since gone nerve-splinteringly close to following up at both Windsor and Sandown Park, and granted some luck in-running can certainly get back on the scoresheet here.

The booking of Martin Lane can only be viewed as a plus - it was the jockey currently chasing his 34th win of the year that was on board when Major Pusey went in at Goodwood. 

Good luck!
