Tippin’ Jimmy has three tips from Monday’s racecard.
4:45 Windsor – Manchego (12/1) ew
This is a horse that I have been keeping a close eye on this season. Hugo Palmer’s three-year-old was well thought of at the start of the year, and built on a debut second to win well in a Wolverhampton maiden. Since then he hasn’t fired, and he has a bit to prove today. But he has been dropped 4lb from the handicapper and I believe he is on a winnable mark.
4:55 Kempton – Ortiz (4/5)
Henry Candy’s Ortiz looked like a classy horse in the making when winning at this track last month, and he could be up to winning again today. The two-year-old won nicely by two lengths over today’s trip and the horse he beat, Iconic Knight, has a fair bit of form behind him. He’s an advancing two-year-old and there may still be a bit more to come from him.
5:25 Kempton – Sergio Leone (3/1)
Andrea Atzeni and Richard Hannon team up with Sergio Leone, another improving prospect at Kempton this evening. He stepped up from an encouraging debut to finish second at Windsor, when beaten easily by classy juvenile Take Me With You. That horse is Group placed, and was always going to win that maiden, but he beat the rest of the field by five lengths. He bumped into one, and his time to shine should be today.
