There's Flat racing in Ireland on Monday
There's Flat racing in Ireland on Monday

There's Flat racing at Cork on Monday evening. Timeform's SmartPlays team provide their three best bets.

"Bubby Bellini was always travelling best when resuming winning ways with something to spare at the Curragh in March and should make a bold-bid to follow-up off his revised mark."

Great Wide Orpen - 17:45 Cork

Great Wide Orpen had a few of these rivals in behind when winning at Tipperary earlier this month and a 6-lb rise doesn't look enough to stop him going in again with the step back up to six furlongs expected to be in his favour. The lightly-raced Five Claw will be suited by the return to sprinting for his handicap debut and may provide the main threat ahead of Dundalk debut scorer Aggression.

Bubbly Bellini - 18:45 Cork

Bubby Bellini was always travelling best when resuming winning ways with something to spare at the Curragh in March and should make a bold-bid to follow-up off his revised mark. Trinity Force remains with potential in handicaps this term and is also taken seriously on his reappearance, alongside the reliable Strait Of Zanzibar.

Danequest - 19:15 Cork

Danequest ran well on both his starts in turf handicaps in 2014 and gets the vote having posted a good effort over hurdles here a fortnight ago. Fainleog and Water Sprite are also considered.
