Windsor Races Betting: Tom Lee's Monday Night Tips


The worst kept secret in sport is the best Monday night you can lay your hands on is a trip to Windsor during the summer months, a stunning racecourse on the banks of the River Thames that serves up consistently exciting action from April 'til October. 

Tonight's installment is typically competitive, and tests punters' winner finding ability with a seven race card featuring three quality handicaps, a seller and three maidens.

It's in the first named category that I'll dip my toe into the water, with the Class 4 0-85 New Horse Racing Odds At Unibet.co.uk Handicap scheduled to hear the blast of the starting pistol at 7.30pm.

It's a race that throws up a rematch for two horses that produced one of the most memorable finishes of the Windsor season to date, as top weight Red Warrior comes up against old foe Perfect Cracker, with Ismael Mohammed's charge three pounds better off for a quarter of a length defeat at this venue exactly three weeks ago. 

The more favourable weights might be able to swing things in his favour, but it's fascinating to see the Unibet odds compilers going an industry wide best price of 7/4 about the favourite, sensing a result if they take an aggressive stance against the market leader...

I think they're right to do so - Perfect Cracker does have to find more on these revised terms, but he's only up three pounds, his stable are really motoring with five winners last week including a Monday double at Windsor, and nothing can disguise the fact that he finished ahead of Red Warrior here last time out over course and distance.

Best of all is the price, while Red Warrior is a short priced favourite the price of our selection is far more tempting at 5/1, and if you didn't already know it arguably the best of a long list of punter-friendly concessions from Unibet comes into play here....

They are offering enhanced each way terms on a host of races - while every other bookmaker is a fifth of the odds in this contest, they offer a quarter, meaning even if Perfect Cracker comes up short we're still on at 5/4 a place.

Half an hour later it's a spot of girl power, with the 0-70 Unibet - By Players For Players Fillies' Handicap on the menu at 8.00pm.

The race sponsors go 5/1 the field, and that's the price about the big danger Choral Festival, a hugely experienced eight-year-old mare by Pivotal who represents the John Bridger and William Carson trainer/jockey combination.

She simply loves Windsor, as lifetime form figures at the track of 3,3,2,1,5,3,3,4,12,2,1,2,4,2,3,3,2,2,2,3,5,8,6,1,3,0,4,6 will testify!

Twice a winner already this season, she's a far better horse on tonight's good ground, and on a mark of 67 is very much in a winning zone.

Her trainer had a good winner at Brighton last Tuesday, and can enjoy more success here. 

Back her each way with Unibet.

Good luck!
