Will Hayler picks out a couple of horses from the action on Monday that you might want to put in your My Stable tracker.

Afternoon rain before the start of racing at Windsor left conditions on the soft side of good and the change of going clearly did not suit some of the fancied runners at the track's evening fixture. Silverrica's action looked all wrong from an early stage of the five-furlong handicap for which she was sent off favourite and she'll be worth a chance to prove this run wrong next time - hopefully at a meatier price.
Stolen Story attracted some money before the start of the six-furlong juvenile maiden on the same card and certainly showed ability on his debut for George Margarson, although I suspect the way Kieren Fallon allowed his mount to coast home in the closing stages will have taken the eye of many and I can see him being over-bet next time, especially as this was not a hot contest by usual Windsor standards.
Nevertheless it's well worth watching a replay of the race. I certainly wouldn't give up on Ghalib either, who ended up rather away from the rest of the action from stall three. He looks a bit of a character, but there's some abillity in there too and his excellent trainer may yet coax it out.
But if I was going to add one horse to my My Stable list, it would be Injaz. Yes, I may well be losing the plot with this nine-race maiden, who has looked anything but a willing ally more than once in his disappointing career.
However there was money for him before the start of the Our Local Heroes Foundation Handicap at Ripon and he simply never had a chance to land a blow having been stopped in his run just when the fire was starting to burn a furlong out.
The exaggerated waiting tactics used here seemed to suit and if the gaps come when his jockey wants them I can see Injaz yet making a mark as a sprint handicapper.
