Timeform take you through the card at Windsor on Monday…
“…from a handicapping perspective he makes plenty of appeal…”
Timeform on Tylery Wonder
17:30 – The vote goes to HATS OFF TO LARRY (4), who went off too hard over further at Epsom last time and he’s just 2 lb higher compared to when striking over this C&D three starts back. Peace And Plenty looked an improved performer when scoring on his first run following wind surgery at Lingfield and he has to be feared. Balmoral Castle has slipped to an attractive mark and also enters calculations.
18:00 – The ones with experience don’t set a very good standard and this will more than likely go to a newcomer. The market will likely reveal more closer to the off, but on pedigree, LUXOR (6) makes plenty of appeal for a yard that continue to go well. He could be worth chancing, with the likes of Extreme Force, Wing Defence and Temujin all looking likely types on paper, too.
18:30 – A winning handicap debut could be on the cards for WILBURY TWIST (4), who figures on a potentially handy opening mark and represents a leading, in-form yard. She has shaped well in her three starts so far and is bred to be much better than this mark. This isn’t as competitive as the Ascot contest Bubble And Squeak was pitched into last time and she has to be considered, while the well-bred Sharp Practice is surely capable of better than she’s shown to date and Daybreak also needs a look.
19:00 – LOUIE DE PALMA’s (4) stamina was stretched over seven furlongs at Ascot last time and he is interesting back down in trip, having chased home Silent Echo over this C&D on penultimate start (second run following a mammoth absence). Now 4 lb better off with that rival, he is taken to emerge on top this time. KIMIFIVE (8) is building a good record at this course and is also worth keeping on side now taking on his elders for the first time.
19:30 – TYLERY WONDER (3) bounced back to form when a decisive winner over this C&D last week, and a reproduction of that effort will see him hard to beat turned out under a 6 lb penalty. Admittedly, he isn’t the easiest to predict, but from a handicapping perspective he makes plenty of appeal. Harry Hurricane will be a threat if on-song, while Roundabout Magic and Outrage also have claims.
20:00 – PETRASTAR (6) shaped with plenty encouragement on debut when only narrowly beaten over this C&D last time, and with improvement expected, he looks the one to beat. The beautifully-bred MIDI (5) is most interesting on his seasonal return having looked badly in need of the experience on his sole start last year. He is the type to improve significantly, though, and needs keeping on side, too.
