Windsor Tip: Rock Of Estonia
Needs to sort out his start but was unbeaten as a juvenile and still retains plenty of ability. Second fastest closer last week but came from too far back.
Nine Below Zero and Rock Of Estonia finished second and fourth respectively over course and distance a week ago and I expect both to feature in the 5.50 contest. Slow starts meant the pair were in rear, not the idea place in a race run at a moderate gallop, with a 104% finishing speed quicker than par. Both ended up makes their runs wider than ideal and their performances can be upgraded.
Nine Below Zero ran the fastest closing sectional, followed by Rock Of Estonia 0.14s slow but I was more visually impressed by the horse of Charlie Hills. He’s got very little mileage on the clock and was 2/2 as a juvenile before his season finished prematurely at the start of May.
Rock Of Estonia has potentially more improvement to come and he wasn’t worked nearly as hard by his jockey as Nine Below Zero despite running a very similair race. He can turn around the form.
