Cowboy Soldier can gallop into the sunset by taking the rich spoils on offer in the Sky Bet Windsor Sprint Series Finale Handicap at the Berkshire venue on Monday.

Trainer Robert Cowell thinks a lot of the three-year-old colt and it is fair to say the best is yet to come from the lightly-raced sprinter.

He is stepping up to six furlongs for the first time and the impression is that it would clearly suit him judged on his latest efforts.

He only got up in the final strides to take a qualifier in this series over five furlongs in May and got going too late when turned over at odds of 4-9 by Gold Filigree at Chelmsford.

It was a similar story over the fast five at Glorious Goodwood when he was third to the progressive Lord Riddiford.

This longer distance could be the making of Cowboy Soldier when he goes for a first prize of £46,000.

Tylery Wonder ended a losing streak going back to last September when scoring in cosy fashion over Windsor's five furlongs last week.

A 6lb penalty might not stop Paul Midgley's eight-year-old from doubling up in the Sky Bet Proud To Support Candlelighters Handicap.

Jensue has been runner-up at Chester on her last two starts and can get her head in front back on a straight track in the British Stallion Studs EBF Fillies' Nursery Handicap at Leicester.

It is understandable Jensue has been in action on the Roodee as she is trained locally by Tom Dascombe and though she has run creditably there, she looks to be more effective on a more galloping course.

Strong evidence for that theory comes from the fact that her sole win so far came at Redcar.

She can be forgiven being down the field at Royal Ascot as she was out of her depth in the Albany Stakes.

This is a more realistic objective.

Storm Ahead can breeze to victory for trainer Tim Easterby in the World Of James Herriot Handicap at Thirsk.

The five-year-old put a poor on the all-weather at Newcastle firmly behind him with a solid performance to finish fourth at Carlisle, less than three lengths behind the winner, Royal Shaheen.

He has been steadily coming down the handicap and was lowered a further 2lb after his latest effort.

The Iffraaj gelding can take advantage of the assessor's leniency in first-time blinkers.

At Bangor, Donald McCain's Beach Break can build on his victory at Cartmel last month, after three second places, by popping up in the Brooke Rankin & Co Accountants Handicap Hurdle.

Sporting Life selections:

BANGOR: 5.40 Henry Smith, 6.10 Zoltan Varga, 6.40 Beach Break, 7.10 Craigmor, 7.40 Danceintothelight, 8.10 Coroner's Report

LEICESTER: 2.20 Jensue, 2.50 Gravina, 3.20 Del Parco, 3.50 Silkstone, 4.20 Lady Katy, 4.50 Duke Cosimo.

ROSCOMMON: 4.45 Calorific, 5.20 Aristocratic Man, 5.50 Savitar, 6.20 Tribal Path, 6.50 Hatton Cross, 7.20 Crecerelle, 7.50 Harebell, 8.20 El Tren.

THIRSK: 2.05 Topical, 2.35 Up The Millers, 3.05 Scenic River, 3.35 Eastern Race, 4.05 Albert Boy, 4.35 Star Shield, 5.05 Storm Ahead, 5.35 Ti Amo.

WINDSOR: 5.30 Peace And Plenty, 6.00 Fares Kodiac, 6.30 Ghalia Al Thumama, 7.00 COWBOY SOLDIER (NAP), 7.30 Tylery Wonder, 8.00 Petrastar.
