There is racing from Galway and Wexford on Monday

Timeform provide the three best bets at Galway and Wexford on Monday...

"...still raw and is open to further improvement..."

Timeform on Arthur Fonzarelli

Arthur Fonzarelli - 12:50 Wexford

Arthur Fonzarelli wasn't beaten far in a maiden hurdle at Roscommon last month and that run sets the form standard in this field. Henry de Bromhead's gelding wandered entering the straight but kept on well and saw his race out much better than on his previous try with the addition of a first-time tongue strap. He is still raw, open to further improvement and looks the one to beat here.

Magic Fountain - 14:20 Galway

Magic Fountain continued her improvement last time when half a length third on handicap debut and connections look to have found a good opportunity for her to open her account here. Aidan O'Brien's filly did her best work late on at Dundalk, making headway in the straight, and she remains unexposed. Vocatus remains in form following her good fourth at the Curragh six days ago and rates the biggest danger despite not being able to shed her maiden tag after 14 runs.

Champagne Classic - 15:10 Wexford

Champagne Classic made light work of his five rivals on seasonal reappearance when easily winning a Fairyhouse novice chase and he could make his race fitness count against a field all making their first starts of the campaign. Champagne Classic travelled strongly, jumping soundly on just his third start over fences and looks the one to beat here at these weights.
