Timeform pick out their three best bets from Sheffield and Nottingham on Monday...

Timeform on Raise the Stakes
TULLYMURRY LARA (Trap 3, 15.07) was rather surprisingly picked up right on the line when having her first competitive start over this trip of 500 metres last time, yet that was another improvement on the clock. With her early pace looking her most useful asset, another smart exit from the boxes may well see her home in front, with further progress not out of the question.
SPARKYS EROSION (Trap 1, 15.27) has endured something of an indifferent spell of late, yet his career is still very much in its infancy and with his latest effort easily passed over, he is fancied to regain the winning thread. For all he doesn't rate the likeliest leader, his make-up on the rails looks a good one and he can make his presence felt from the ¾ point.
Over at Nottingham, the opening heats of the British Breeders Stakes take place and RAISE THE STAKES (Trap 1, 20.08) is fancied to land Heat 1. His form reads particularly well in the context of this race and, having advertised his well-being with a recent sprint trial, he can boss matters.
