Speed Ratings - Monday

    Speed expert Lawrence Taylor provides exclusive ratings and Speed Six analysis every day for At The Races. His best bets for Monday go at Windsor and Wolverhampton - live on ATR.

ROCK STEADY THE ONE TO BEAT AT WINDSOR

ROCK STEADY (nap) is the best and most consistent clocker in this nine-runner handicap, and is a proven performer around the turns at Windsor.

Successful at Wolverhampton three outings ago, the gelding knows where the winning post is, and races as though today's step up to ten furlongs will suit.

The predicted faster ground could also work in this gelding's favour.

Pencilled in odds of 6-1 must be seen as yet another positive.

Ayr 3-05 Handicap (Class 6) 7f

LTO Speed: Dark Command 84 Dark Crystal 71 Goninodaethat 70

DARK COMMAND rates well clear on the clock for this lowly ten-runner handicap, courtesy of his nose second to Dark Crystal over this track and trip last week. Granted, the selection is still a maiden after 11 career outings on the level, but could come good today's with underfoot conditions to suit.

Galway 7-20 Handicap 17f

Synopsis 67 -- 42 67 -- -- --

LTO Speed: Swamp Fox 76 Lagostovegas 72 Sretaw 60

I'm going to give an each-way shout to SWAMP FOX in this 23-runner staying handicap, as he posted a list-topping speed rating of 76 when trotting up at Ballinrobe last week, and has been lightly raced enough of late to still be going forward strongly.

Newton Abbot 4-55 Handicap Chase (Class 4) 26f

Horse Best Lto 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th
Free Of Charge 78 78 43 65 49 47 --

Patsys Castle 53 -- 53 -- -- -- --
Celtic Intrigue 48 48 -- -- -- -- --

LTO Speed: Free Of Charge 78 Celtic Intrigue 48 Present Accepted 42

FREE OF CHARGE hinted at better times ahead over fences when finishing second to Strumble Head over this course and distance earlier in the month, a performance that also saw him generate a list-dominant speed rating of 78. The winner ran eight points faster when placed at this same venue next time out, which helps to firm up the form no end.

Wolverhampton 6-40 Handicap (Class 5) 6f

Horse Best Lto 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th
Eljaddaaf 82 73 66 82 (44) 54 66

Desert Strike 77 55 72 68 67 63 69

LTO Speed: Eljaddaaf 73 City Of Angkor Wat 73 Doctor Parkes 70

ELJADDAAF (nb) makes plenty of appeal in this 13-runner sprint handicap, as he rates top on both speed lists, and was a winner over this track and trip back in February. Winner of his fair share of races on the all-weather, it will come as little surprise if he adds to his tally this evening, especially as he is once again taking on Class 5 rivals.

Wolverhampton 8-40 Handicap (Class 6) 8.5f

Thatsthewaytodoit 49 49 33 36 -- -- --
Brick Lane 43 (--) 43 38 -- -- --

LTO Speed: King Oswald 71 Bonhomie 70 Lee Bay 49

KING OSWALD has failed to make the frame on his six career starts to date, yet still comes out top on the clock today with best numbers of 71 and 70. This tells us that his last two races must have been pretty decent affairs, or that today's contest is very much lacking in quality. Either way, the selection looks a decent each-way play at his pencilled in odds of 16-1. One to watch out for in the live market, that's for sure.
