ESSENAITCH RATES A VALUE PICK AT WINDSOR

ESSENAITCH (nap) failed to get competitive in an 18-runner handicap over the extended mile at Galway latest, yet stayed on well enough to finish just over three lengths behind the winner, and post a list-topping speed rating of 88.

Just denied by Hot And Fast in a Class 5 handicap over this track and trip in May, the selection has ticks in all of the important boxes this afternoon, including the one marked 'ground'.

Chalked up at 11-1 with bet365 at the time of writing (8-1 elsewhere), those odds should be taken.

Windsor 5-50 Handicap (Class 4) 10f

LTO Speed: Ebony Rose 83 Luso Benny 50 Ginny Brig 49

EBONY ROSE got off the mark in a 2m 4f maiden hurdle at Perth three weeks ago, while at the same time managing to generate a list-dominant speed rating of 83. Staying on strongly at the business end on that occasion, the mare is sure to appreciate today's step up in trip, and the more it rains between now and post time the better she should go (showers forecast).

Lingfield 4-30 Stakes (Class 6) 6f

 Horse  Best  Lto  2nd  3rd  4th  5th  6th

LTO Speed: Hello Girl 75 Sing Out Loud 54 Fortunate Vision 49

HELLO GIRL wasn't for catching in a five furlong juvenile contest at Wolverhampton last week, and in the process managed to generate a premier LTO speed rating of 75. A 71 horse when just denied by Lexington Grace over a fast ground six furlongs at Nottingham in June, the filly will have no trouble handling today's conditions, but, with a couple of unknowns in the line up, her early tissue odds of 5-4 don't leave much room for our old friend value.

Roscommon 7-10 Handicap 10f

 Horse  Best  Lto  2nd  3rd  4th  5th  6th
 Panstarr  86  86  55  59  52  62  66
 Perfect Soldier  82  82  69  58  51  61  --
 Ontheiflist  79  79  40  71  55  43  53
 Apparition  79  59  55  79  53  78  --

LTO Speed: Panstarr 86 Perfect Soldier 82 Ontheiflist 79

PANSTARR (nb) makes plenty of appeal in this six-runner middle-distance handicap, having posted a list-topping speed rating of 86 in victory at Gowran Park last week, and having trotted up at this venue three outings ago. Fully effective on soft ground, the filly must take all the beating again this afternoon, and doesn't look badly priced on the early tissue at odds of 2-1.

Roscommon 7-40 Handicap 10f

 Horse  Best  Lto  2nd  3rd  4th  5th  6th
 Ace Of Diamonds  75  75  62  --  --  --  --
 English Pale  73  73  --  --  --  --  --
 Collision Course  70  61  70  63  24  --  --
 Evie Be Kool  69  54  28  69  39  --  --

LTO Speed: Ace Of Diamonds 75 English Pale 73 Clonard Street 65

ACE OF DIAMONDS rates top on the clock for this 11-runner middle-distance handicap, courtesy of his fourth to Remarkable Lady at Galway earlier in the month. Sure to come on a fair bit for that solid comeback effort, and with a win at Leopardstown already in the bag, it will come as no surprise if this 4yo son of Oasis Dream adds to his tally tonight.

Thirsk 4-45 Handicap (Class 6) 12f

 Horse  Best  Lto  2nd  3rd  4th  5th  6th
 Clenymistra  69  69  56  42  63  51  39
 In Focus  64  57  28  --  60  64  (33)
 Correggio  61  61  60  60  15  38  --
 Ivors Involvement  58  33  57  56  58  46  (40)

LTO Speed: Clenymistra 69 Correggio 61 Steccando 58

CLENYMISTRA comes into today's contest with plenty of ticks in the important boxes, having posted a list-topping speed rating of 69 in victory over this track and trip last week. Effective on most types of ground, the filly shouldn't be inconvenienced if the forecast showers materialise between now and post time, but a predicted weak pace has to be seen as a slight negative for this come from behind performer.
