Fabulous opportunity for Priti

PRITI Fabulous rates as a standout selection in the Get A Bonus At williamhillcasino.com Fillies’ Handicap at Windsor tonight.

The William Haggas-trained three-year-old has been in top trim this summer and is eminently capable of supplementing her rousing success at Kempton in June.

Such confidence can be derived from her most recent start at Newmarket, where she finished second to subsequent Pontefract scorer Admiral Dundas.

It could have been a different outcome at Headquarters, however, as the daughter of Invincible Spirit came from the clouds when held up late by Darryll Holland.

As that was her first stab over a mile, it is safe to assume she will know her job far better this time.

Still lightly raced and blessed with plenty of zip, more positive tactics allayed to a faster-run race should see Priti Fabulous home and hosed.

Doctor Parkes can give Yarmouth punters an early shot in the arm by landing the opener at the seaside track.

The Diktat colt has at this stage done little wrong on a racecourse, having finished third on his Ascot debut and then runner-up at Sandown.

Although many expected him to win in Esher – he was sent off the 13-8 favourite - his chance was possibly ruined by a tardy start, after which he was firmly put in his place by Triple Aspect.

But as that rival holds a late-season entry in the Mill Reef, it may well emerge an even better performance with the benefit of hindsight.

As he proved at Ascot, Doctor Parkes will be unfazed by a bit of juice in the ground.

The colt is also highly unlikely to come up against an opponent of Triple Aspect’s constitution in the Great Yarmouth Tourism Median Auction Maiden Stakes.

Fly Kiss gets the nod in the Marsh Green Fillies’ Handicap at Lingfield.

The Clive Brittain-trained filly can often be a shade too keen for her own good but is in reasonable nick, having warmed up for this assignment with a good third at Brighton.

Handicap life was always going to tough for Fly Kiss after she performed excellently when fifth in last season’s Group Two Prestige Stakes.

But having been shed another 2lb for her last outing in Sussex, it is not unreasonable to suggest she should be coming to hand nicely from her current perch of 70.

Swords cuts a promising figure in the totequadpot Handicap at Wolverhampton.

The six-year-old was last week denied an all-weather hat-trick when usurped by handicap snip Master At Arms.

Although on that occasion he was well adrift of the Irish-trained winner, Swords met considerable trouble in running yet still drew over three lengths clear of third-placed That Look.

Unless there is a similarly devilish handicapper waiting in the wings, Swords has a prime opportunity with which to rediscover his golden touch on the sand.
