Timeform on Grand Rapid

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Flamingo Park on Monday...

#8 Grand Rapid - Flamingo Park R7 (14:25 BST)

Grand Rapid showed much improved form to open her account at the fourth attempt over shorter at this course last time, and promises to progress further still, so is fancied to follow up. Baby Lets Mambo seemingly poses the biggest danger, while Axios merits respect as well.

#4 Blue Diamond Road - Flamingo Park R8 (15:00 BST)

Admittedly, Blue Diamond Road is on a lengthy losing run, but as a result is becoming too well handicapped to ignore, having slipped to a lowly mark. He could be worth chancing as a result in an open contest. Irish Vagabond looks the most dangerous opponent ahead of Twister Vortex.

#8 Girl In Gold - Flamingo Park R9 (15:40 BST)

There has been a lot to like about Girl In Gold's recent runs, and a reproduction of her latest effort when third over further at this course will see her firmly in the mix. Bid Before Sunset is probably the chief opposition, while Enceladus commands respect as well.
