Timeform pick out three bets from Flamingo Park on Monday.


Splashy - Flamingo Park 12:35

Splashy is a clear cut selection in this mile maiden and has some solid form in the book despite the figures. Last time out the daughter of Kahal ran on strongly over six furlongs here on her first try on the sand to be beaten three and a half lengths by Somnium and if she repeats that here over a more suitable trip Splashy will take all the stopping.

Sea Bean - Flamingo Park 13:00

Sea Bean will have to shrug off top weight to win this but is the obvious form choice after her three and a half length fourth to Sabre Charge in the Class C Diamond Stayers here last time out in what was a much better field than she faces here. The drop back in trip from eleven to nine furlongs seems unlikely to be an issue, and if Bill Human's filly remains in that sort of form she can take this Class E Handicap in her stride.

Oratio - Flamingo Park 14:55

Oratio gets weight from all the other runners here as a three-year-old yet is rated the joint highest in this field and has to have a decent enough chance for trainer Stephanie Miller. He won his maiden over course and distance on his sixth start in July, and wasn't totally disgraced in a decent Class C nursery here last time out, but ought to find the drop down in class and low weight to his advantage and he can go really well at an exaggerated price.
