Sam Turner's Best Bets BlogLOUIE DE PALMA (Windsor, 7.10) has very few miles on the clock for a seven-year-old and arrives in fine form for the Windsor feature on Monday evening.

Patience has been key for connections of the gelding who won over course and distance on debut, then followed up in an Ascot handicap before finishing second in the Group 2 Richmond Stakes at Goodwood. However, he then endured a hefty 1381-day break before reappearing for a frustrating and winless 2018 season.

Louie De Palma has now been gelded and is belatedly back to his best having won an Ascot contest from the front on his penultimate start and narrowly denied in a better race at Newmarket last time. He is not best drawn for this contest but has flown the stalls on his last two outings and looks the class act.

Louie De Palma 2pt win @ 7-2

KORCHO (Windsor, 8.15) is a bit hit and miss but won readily over course and distance on his three-year-old bow, pouncing late with a strong run.

The selection couldn’t follow up in a warm Newbury handicap but was well backed at Haydock 17 days ago, running with credit on heavy going that anchored his finishing kick.

Korcho drops back in grade on Monday with optimum conditions expected and should be hard to beat.

Korcho 1pt win @ 3-1
