Timeform pick out three bets from Mountaineer on Monday.

Timeform on Walkin Princess
Victory Slide recorded back-to-back wins here last summer and it would be no surprise if he were to get back to winning ways on this return to action, having been given time to freshen up since bringing up the rear on dirt here in November. Pleasant Outlook and Alpha Slew complete the shortlist.
Walkin Princess was disappointing when down the field on dirt here last time, the first time she has failed to win in six starts for her current stable. She has been given plenty of time to record from that effort, though, and a reproduction of her best form would make her the clear one to beat here, with Sazerac Girl feared most of the remainder.
Liberty Fire ran well when third (Spectacular Lady second) after eight months off here last time and should prove a tough nut to crack if building on that, with Kevin Fletcher's charge faced with the possibility of an easy lead in this $4k claimer. Learning Curve looks likely to emerge as the chief threat.
