There is jumps racing from Galway on Monday

Timeform pick out three bets from Galway on Monday.


Contingency - 15:25 Galway

Fairly useful Flat performer Contingency made the perfect start for new connections when winning a maiden hurdle at Tramore last month, not having to work too hard and seeming sure to come on for the experience. The bare form of that race isn't anything to write home about, but it would be a surprise were she not capable of better, and can make it two from two in this sphere. Fellow last-time-out winner Jamie Sommers may prove the biggest danger.

Youngnedofthehill - 16:00 Galway

Wide-margin Ballinrobe winner Youngnedofthehill should probably have followed up at Bellewstown last month, finishing with running left in second having been left with plenty to do, so is worth backing to make amends up a further 3 lb in the weights. The booking of Ruby Walsh for Babanango catches the eye so he is feared, along with Effernock Lad.

Penny Jane - 16:30 Galway

Penny Jane showed improved form from her chasing debut when again finishing runner-up at Kilbeggan this month. She has made a positive start over fences, and seems sure to do better still, so remains one to be interested in. Chase debutante Montana Belle has been well backed this morning and looks the likely danger.
