There is all-weather racing from Kempton on Monday

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Kempton on Monday...

"...should prove hard to beat here with improvement forthcoming..."

Timeform on Blue Mountain

Blue Mountain - 18:45 Kempton

A cracking-looking two-year-old contest that can go to Blue Mountain, a superbly-bred Godolphin colt who went down narrowly in what was a very promising debut at Chester. He was beaten only by a determined rival who had the benefit of previous experience, and Blue Mountain should prove hard to beat here with improvement forthcoming. Salisbury-second Red October seems sure to be in the hunt, while Mondain might be the pick of the newcomers.

Qaroun - 19:45 Kempton

Qaroun ran a cracker switched to the all-weather when third at Chelmsford last time, beaten only half a length by a subsequent winner, and makes plenty of appeal from a 2 lb higher mark. Corrosive could have even more to offer having made it 3 wins for the year last time and has a big shout again. The dependable Maypole, also seeking a fourth win this season, should go well once more.

Trinitas - 21:15 Kempton

Trinitas ran his best race yet when well backed and second at Lingfield a fortnight ago, running on under hand riding after the winner had flown, just slightly slower on the uptake. The longer straight at this course will suit him and he can open his account here if in the same sort of form. Looking For Carl is clearly a stayer and could go well again over this new trip.
