We move to week four of the Racing League and the action moves to Windsor for a six-race card on Thursday evening, and our in-house tipster Steve Chambers has picked out his three best bets of the night...

17:25 Windsor - William Hill Play Responsibly Racing League Race Nineteen

Clive Cox's Fernando Rah has been in flourishing form of late and the progressive three-year-old will attempt to make it three wins on the bounce when he lines up in the 17:25 at Windsor, which kicks off the Racing League action. A taking two-and-a-half length victory at Wolverhampton in the middle of July was followed by a comfortable success at Bath two weeks late, and he will look to continue on an upward curve on Thursday evening.

That victory at Bath came off a mark of 82 and he will take his chance in this event off a mark of 88, so he will need to produce a career best to land this prize. However, he shaped like there could be some more improvement to come over sprint distances. and he could prove to be a cut above his rivals here.

Autumn Flight and Kool Moe Dee have been knocking on the door of late, but have often found one or two too good, and while they will be lively adversaries to the likely favourite in Fernando Rah it's Cox's charge that can prevail.

18:25 Windsor - William Hill Free Or Four Racing League Race Twenty-One

Ninth in the Britannia Stakes at Royal Ascot, the George Boughey-trained Air To Air is a warm order to claim Race 21 in the Racing League, which is off at 18:25. Sent off favourite next time out at Doncaster, the son of Toronado struggled to land any sort of blow and finished in seventh spot. However, it was his awkwardness that day that leaves a nagging doubt, so at short odds for this race he could be worth taking on.

One that catches eye is the top-weighted Dark Lion, who has been falling down the handicap in recent times and now looks very attractively handicapped off a mark of 90. A former runner-up in the Group 3 Somerville Tattersalls Stakes at Newmarket, Roger Varian's charge was last seen finishing down the field in a Sandown Park event off a mark of 92.

But, now dropped 2lbs for this 1m 31y event, Dark Lion has to be respected if he can recapture any sort of his old form. He should be able to act on the good to firm, as he has sometimes struggled in soft underfoot conditions, and with near double-figured prices available he's worth taking a chance on.

19:55 Windsor - William Hill Extra Place Races Racing League Race Twenty-Four

Roger Varian's Lydford was a winner in last week's Racing League column and it's hard to bypass the progressive four-year-old, who can strike again by landing Race 24, which is run at 19:55. Storming clear in the closing stages of the race, Lydford comfortably dispatched of Red October by a length, and while he will carry a 5lb penalty in this contest he's entitled to be well fancied to land a second Racing League win.

He will be making his first trip to Windsor on Thursday evening, so will need to show he can deliver the goods there, but the manner in which he claimed victory seven days ago suggested that he rack up a host of wins in the coming weeks, and he can duly score for the second week on the bounce here.

Hugo Palmer's Red October will line up to try and reverse last week's form, but while he has to be respected it's hard to see him bagging the win, so it could prove to be Big Boy Bobby that marks the biggest danger as he was an impressive winner at Brighton last time out and is entitled to take his chance here.
