Timeform pick out three bets from Flamingo Park on Monday.


Dr Finley 14:30 (BST)

Dr Finley is becoming frustrating after a run of five consecutive places but should be happier dropped back to a mile this afternoon after running out of steam over further here last time out. He has been put up 1 lb for finishing a five and a quarter length second in a similar event, but Muzi Yeni takes over in the saddle now, and a big run is expected once again from Dr Finley.

Mr McSteamy 15:00 (BST)

Mr McSteamy is another with more places than wins to his name, but has been in good sorts despite being put up 3 lb for winning on the Greyville polytrack over a furlong shorter than this in February. He ran well enough here last time out when a length and three quarters second to Easy To Please running on at the death, and a repeat of that should see Mr McSteamy visit the winners' enclosure for the third time.

Seven Tales 15:30 (BST)

Seven Tales represents the von Willingh Smit stable who are so successful at this particular track, and the daughter of Seventh Rock can win her third race here. Dropped back in trip to five furlongs last time out here she ran away with a slightly lesser contest by three and a half lengths, and although up 6 lb for that victory, Seven Tales needs to be followed while in this sort of form.

Win back #9 DR FINLEY in R8 (14:30 BST)
Win back #3 MR MCSTEAMY in R9 (15:00 BST)
Win back #4 SEVEN TALES in R10 (15:30 BST)
