Timeform on Classy Lynn

Timeform bring you the three best bets from Monmouth on Friday...

#7 Takingtimeoff - Monmouth R1 (22:00 BST)

The ones with experinece don't set a particulary taxing standard in this two-year-old maiden, so the one to concentrate on may well be first-time starter Takingtimeoff. Debuting for the Michael Stidham/Godolphin axis, this Curlin filly has posted a series of fast workouts in preparation for her unveiling.

#3 Brice - Monmouth R2 (22:30 BST)

Brice was returning from a 223-day layoff when fourth in a stronger maiden claimer than this at Belmont last time. With improvement likely from that comeback run, he should prove tough to beat against this lesser opposition. Masterio has a rider in the plate who excels around here and appeals most of the remainder.

#7 Classy Lynn - Monmouth R6 (00:30 BST)

Classy Lynn has been given a break since posting a couple of below-par efforts at Tampa Bay, and will also benefit from switching back to turf from dirt. She could well be the value play in a claimer that doesn't have a great amount of depth to it. Painted Image is also likely to be thereabouts, while Jonimarie deserves some consideration too.
