STOPNSEARCH (3.10) has hit the crossbar on a few occasions at Lingfield this winter but the return to turf can do the trick at Windsor.
A dual winner on grass at Lingfield last season, Stopnsearch has been found a modest 1m 2f handicap under top weight and the prevailing fast ground is ideal.
At bigger odds, SCEPTRED ISLE (4.40) is well worth an each-way bet at around 9-1, especially with several firms offering four places. Henry Candy's filly makes her handicap debut off a reasonable mark and wasn't disgraced in novice company last season, running third to Aaddey on her final start at Nottingham at the end of September.
Keith Dalgleish was amongst the winners at Kelso yesterday and the Carluke trainer drops EL PICADOR (5.00) into Class 5 company at Redcar. His gelding ran some decent races in defeat last season, not always enjoying a rub of the green, and this slight ease in grade wins him a narrow vote over Will Somers and Greengage.
LE BAYOU (5.30) can take division two of the 1m 2f handicap if repeating the form of his Doncaster third 16 days ago when losing out in a three-way photo.
