Racing Tip of the Day
Dave Ord heads to Windsor tonight for the tip of the day and expects a winner for Sir Michael Stoute and Ryan Moore.
Sir Michael Stoute may have stumbled across an Investec Derby colt at Lingfield on Saturday and looks the man to follow at Windsor on Monday evening.
He saddles a highly regarded juvenile in Russian Heroine in the opener but a safer bet looks to be Happy Retirement In Brazil Michael Butlin Handicap.
No I don't know if Michael is related to Billy, but the race that carries his name could be at the mercy of this progressive son of High Chaparral who went into just about every notebook in the country on his latest start at Kempton.
Shaping as though the mile trip was totally in adequate he thundered home to take fourth behind the well-regarded Heisman.
He promises to be a very different proposition now sent handicapping over middle distances and an initial mark of 74 looks very workable.
There are plenty of similarly unexposed, potential improvers in the field but Stampede looks a colt to follow - starting this evening.
