Sir Plato makes it onto The Shortlist at Windsor today, with four sections of green and one of amber, giving a score of 13.
He, therefore, appears well-suited by today’s conditions and at a current price of 15/2, is worth a closer look.
The recent form of Sir Plato has been a bit up and down, but it is extremely interesting that out of his last seven races he has won three of them, and they have all been over course and distance.
He is just the two pounds higher than for the last of those wins and returns to favourable good to soft conditions here today.
Trainer Rod Millman has a reasonable record here at Windsor over the past year and his strike rate in handicap races is decent.
Sir Plato’s sire, Sir Prancealot, has a very good record with runners over the middle distances, showing a small level stakes profit from 138 runners, and an Impact Value of 1.57.
The Instant Expert report highlights the good showing of Sir Plato in today’s conditions and that very few of the other runners look particularly well suited, with very few sections of green.
This means that in what looks a very open race it may not take a lot of winning.
The Pace report shows that early leaders here over this distance have an excellent record, with 23.95% of them going on to win the race for a level stakes profit of 247.77, and an Impact Value of 2.17.
A few of the runners in this one are usually away fairly quickly, including Sir Plato, and being drawn in stall seven leaves him in a good position to be able to grab the lead as long as he can break away well.
If William Carson is able to do this then he will be able to dictate things from the front, and when there he has shown in the past that he is more than capable of leading the whole way.
