Timeform provide three best bets at Monmore and Nottingham on Monday.
"...he can strike fast and late to add to his tally..."
Timeform on Santas Slick
We head to Monmore for today's first selection an A2 affair in our book lacking strength in depth and newcomer TIERMANA DASH (Trap 2, 16.38) may well be up to building on some steadily progressive trials and come out on top. Gary Griffiths' charge boasted a good CV in Ireland, posting a very slick 28.43 when successful at Limerick back in June and he really ought to be up to making his mark at this level.
We step up in class for our second selection over at Nottingham at 20.36 and the potentially well-drawn CLERIHAN AXLE (Trap 6) is fancied to dispel an unlucky run in A1 class last time. A winner over the shorter 480-metre trip previously, there's reason to think he can do better still given he's only an October 19' whelp and he can avoid potential scrimmaging inside and emerge victorious.
SANTAS SLICK (Trap 6, 21.26) doesn't make life easy for himself with moderate breaks from the boxes but there have been better signs having eased a peg on the graded ladder of late, finding only one too good 5 days ago. Tonight's contest doesn't look the strongest and with a clear passage out wide he can strike fast and late to add to his tally.
