Timeform pick out three bets from Flamingo Park on Monday.

"He will arrive here fresh and with the Glen Kotzen yard in good form, Wine Dark Sea has been found perhaps his easiest opportunity yet."

Raving Rocket - 10:20 (GMT) Flamingo Park

Raving Rocket certainly showed the benefit of her Turffontein debut when showing serious improvement on her second outing here at the end of last month. Beaten eighteen lengths at odds of 22/1 on grass first time out she put that behind her with a superb head second to Seattle Nite over course and distance, and even a repeat of that ought to be good enough to see her double up this morning.

Wine Dark Sea - 11:50 (GMT) Flamingo Park

Wine Dark Sea is a maiden after twenty-four starts, but the son of Argonaut ran one of his better races last time out when third at Greyville on the polytrack, and if he can bring that form on to the sand today he has a pretty lively chance. Beaten two and three-quarter lengths by The Private in early February he will arrive here fresh and with the Glen Kotzen yard in good form, Wine Dark Sea has been found perhaps his easiest opportunity yet.

Silver Glacier - 12:20 (GMT) Flamingo Park

Silver Glacier looked to be coming to hand again last time out here at Flamingo Park when running on over nine furlongs to go down by a quarter of a length, with a big six and a half lengths back to the third. Although effectively up four pounds for that placing, he won't get many better chances of adding to his maiden win over the mile here than this weak looking contest, and trainer Tienie Prinsloo will have him spot on again today leaving Silver Glacier with an excellent chance at the prices.
