Timeform on A Lovely Rose

Timeform head to Finger Lakes for their three best bets on Monday...

#1 Secret Alchemy - Finger Lakes R5 (19:03 GMT)

Secret Alchemy quickly bounced back to form when second only to an impressive winner at this course last time and a repeat of that effort will suffice here. Aly's All Out and Lady Stipp makes most appeal of the remainder.

#6 A Lovely Rose - Finger Lakes R7 (19:57 GMT)

A Lovely Rose was a good winner over this C&D last time and had a bit up her sleeve on that occasion, so is strongly fancied to follow up and make it three wins in her last four starts. Pachamama and I'm A Good Looker have the potential to get involved, too.

#6 For Good Reason - Finger Lakes R8 (20:24 GMT)

This doesn't look the strongest race of its type and For Good Reason looks the one to be with. He doesn't arrive in great form but on the pick of his form he should be competitive here and is worth chancing. Watergate and Dremas Boy look best of the remainder.
