Horse Racing - Racing: Hodgson hoping for Windsor joy

Windsor holds its usual card in the Monday evening slot and can be a track where following runners with course form can pay dividends.

Just That Lord has a fantastic record at the Berkshire track having been there four times resulting in two wins, a second and a close fourth and not being a serial winner either, having only won three times on turf, confirms his liking for this track.

Mixed fortunes for Hodgson's charge

The Simon Hodgson-trained nine-year-old reappeared after a 209-day break at Epsom with a good performance but failed to build on that on his next start, beating just one home at Nottingham.

He has shown a liking for fast ground too so connections will be hoping that the forecast rain stays away in the hopes of getting the best out of him.

Hodgson said: "I'm hoping we don't get rain on Monday because he wants pretty quick ground. He ran very well the first time after a long break at Epsom but he was a little bit disappointing at Nottingham."

Rating not an issue for Hodgson

After two poor runs out of his last three starts, Just That Lord has dropped to a mark that is just 1lb higher than when he was last successful and is just one of two in the field that can boast a course and distance victory.

"He's an older horse and sometimes it's not straightforward with them but we're very hopeful of a big run with him." added Hodgson. "William [Carver] got a right tune out of him when he won there and he's only 1lb higher."
