Timeform on Dean Verdile

Timeform select the three best bets from Finger Lakes and Delaware on Monday...

#1 Dean Verdile - Finger Lakes R2 (18:37)

Dean Verdile has been knocking on the door in better races than this of late, hitting the frame in four of his last five outings, and he can take advantage of this return to calmer waters to regain the winning thread. Fifty Eight O G was below form last time but is one to consider on these terms, while Deficit Hawk has been in the mix of late and should give another good account.

#4 Sweetest Party - Finger Lakes R3 (19:04)

Sweetest Party finished runner-up in a similar event at this course last time, no real match for the winner but finishing strongly, and he is a leading player judged on those figures. Honorable Gibson has more solid claims than most and can make his presence felt, while Theresa's Boy can win the battle for third.

#1 Two Carat - Delaware Park R8 (21:45)

Two Carat arrives here on the back of a facile success at Parx last time, eased off the far rail on the home turn before driving clear to win by six lengths. A repeat of that effort should see him very difficult to beat. Free Coffee is also high on the shortlist and should be thereabouts, while Tink will receive plenty of assistance from the saddle and is aslo worth a second look.
