19:45 Winsdor: Download Fitzdares For Free Race Streaming Handicap (1 mile 2 furlongs) At the head of the market, Tuxedo Junction has no form whatsoever going right-handed and has never won a handicap, while Farasi Lane has landed his two turf wins over shorter distances on an uphill track with cut in the ground and he has no form over this far.

That vulnerability brings in Youthful King, who could be set for an all-the-way success under these conditions. Two of his three career wins have come from the front and he is drawn ideally for those tactics in stall 1 on this tight track.

Both of his turf wins were achieved on good-firm, the first coming over this trip this time last year, so he has his ground as well as Marco Ghiani, who was in the saddle for both of those wins.

His seasonal debut this term, which saw him finish ninth of 19 in a higher-graded Class 3 at Newbury last month, was a decent enough return because the ground was a bit slower than he prefers and he was at a disadvantage racing down the near side as the principals came down the far side.

He is likely to come on again for that return to action and today's switch back to a right-handed track with quicker ground will go hugely in his favour as he drops two pounds in the process.

If he can secure an uncontested lead from his inside draw, he will prove hard to pass down the long home straight because he stays this trip very strongly. Suggested bet: Youthful King in the 19:45 at Windsor

Looking elsewhere, Silver Gunn won a Class 4 handicap by more than four lengths over this course and distance on good-firm ground in May last year, so he looks a big player back here under very similar conditions and off only two pounds higher.

He was also here for his seasonal return in late May, contesting a higher-graded Class 3 handicap over this trip, and he came home third of seven, missing second place by just a nose.

From a handy stall 4 under James Doyle, who rides this track very well, Silver Gunn has nothing to prove and is likely to go very well back down in grade.
