Timeform provide their three best bets at Hamilton on Monday...

Gaelic Secret - 13:00 Hamilton

Gaelic Secret has a useful pedigree and shaped with plenty of promise on debut when third at Catterick earlier this month. He started at odds of 40/1 that day, so he was clearly expected to come on for the experience, and his greenness was evident once he came under pressure, wandering early in the straight but staying on well all the same. That form stands out in this field, and with improvement forthcoming, he looks the one to beat.

Archaeology - 14:00 Hamilton

Archaeology didn't enjoy the rub of the green when sixth at Thirsk last time, still going well when not getting the clearest runs two furlongs out, so is taken to belatedly confirm reappearance promise and get back to winning ways. Granite City Doc has already scored twice here this summer so is feared most, although Le Chiffre is another with winning form at the track who can make his presence felt in an open handicap.

Ayr Poet - 14:30 Hamilton

Ayr Poet took another step forward to notch a third win in his last four outings here eight days ago, landing some nice bets in the process, and his limit may not yet have been reached, so he gets the nod to go in again from a 5 lb higher mark with Danny Tudhope booked.
