Monday's Windsor best bets and racing tips: Keep the faith with Special Envoy

Our evening meeting comes from Windsor and the Planet Sport tipsters have some cracking selections on Monday, July 25.

You might just dodge a rain shower if you head to Windsor for the evening meeting on Monday. Hopefully our tips will bring you a little ray of sunshine too.

Firstly you'll need a quick run through of Monday's selections below. You can also get all the latest racecards and results using the Planet Sport live centre.


17:30 (Windsor) Airshow

18:00 (Windsor) Cruise

18:30 (Windsor) Indestructible

19:00 (Windsor) Spring Is Sprung

19:35 (Windsor) Special Envoy

20:10 (Windsor) Western Writer

20:40 (Windsor) Baez

18:30 (Windsor) Indestructible

Thunder Ball and Manuha are both likely to play a key role in proceedings having shown promise over course and distance on their racecourse debuts earlier this month, but preference is for Indestructible.

The Irish raider was a fair fifth on his first outing at the Curragh in June and with improvement likely, he could provide Amo Racing with more juvenile success.

A son of U S Navy Flag, Chief Of Navy could feature in a moderate contest.

19:35 (Windsor) Special Envoy

Special Envoy is of clear interest on his handicap debut at Windsor.

The three-year-old is an impeccably-bred son of Frankel, being a half-brother to the high-class sprinting pair of Marsha and Judicial.

The Frankel influence appears to have put more stamina than speed into this particular colt, but he has plenty of ability judged on his three efforts thus far, with a win at Windsor sandwiched by runner-up finishes at Newmarket and Newbury respectively.

Special Envoy was beaten at cramped odds last time, but may have bumped into a smart newcomer in Jack Darcy and he can reward those who keep the faith in the Free Tips Daily On Handicap.

20:10 (Windsor) Western Writer

Charlie Appleby's Western Writer will not be winning out of turn if he can plunder the Fitzdares Loves Racing Expert Sam Hockenhull Handicap.

While seemingly one of the lesser lights at Moulton Paddocks, the Chelmsford maiden winner has been beaten less than a length in each of two handicap starts, most recently being headed on the line at Yarmouth.

He did wander under pressure that day and is perhaps not entirely straightforward, but he has the requisite ability to win a race of this nature if he puts it all together.
