Torcello can extend his winning streak at Windsor as he tackles the one-mile-three-furlong Ivor Laws Memorial Handicap.

A winner on his last two starts over 10 furlongs, the gelding has won over hurdles but seems to be best suited to a slightly shorter trip.

His recent successes have earned him a 5lb penalty, but the booking of Megan Nicholls will go some way to negate that on Monday.

He can also handle the deep ground produced by the recent damp weather, proven by both recent victories on either heavy or soft going.

Michael Bell's Bottom Bay made a pleasing debut, and should be sharper for it in the Kaltenburg EBF Novice Stakes.

From a famous Lady Bamford family, his unraced dam is a sister to the dual Oaks winner Sariska - and cut in the ground should be no problem.

Bell sent him to Leicester for his first run when he went off an unconsidered 33-1 chance but shaped nicely to finish fourth of nine.

That was on quick ground - and with a run under his belt and on a softer surface, better can be expected.

Saeed bin Suroor is ending the season in fine form and looks to have found a winning opportunity for Live Your Dream up at Newcastle.

Second at Chelmsford on debut, he was slightly disappointing next time out at Yarmouth when only third.

He is clearly no superstar but he will not have to be to win the DFE Electrical Maiden Stakes.
