Timeform pick out three bets from Flamingo Park on Monday.


Elusive Singer - 13:20 Flamingo Park

Elusive Singer can shrug off top weight here for the Tienie Prinsloo stable, and arrives here in the form of his life. After winning his second race over a furlong shorter here in June, the son of Elusive Fort ran on strongly to be beaten less than quarter of length over the same trip off eight pounds higher. Off the same mark again today and with an extra furlong to travel, Elusive Singer ought to win again this afternoon with the small drop in class an added bonus.

Double Bind - 13:50 Flamingo Park

Double Bind brings plenty of experience to this race on his seventieth start and is looking to follow up a win over a furlong shorter last time out, his seventh in total to add to his twenty-three places. He has been put up two pounds for that victory, but is still eighteen pounds lower than his career high rating and while he seems unlikely to ever reach those heights again, Double Bind may still be capable of a follow up win this afternoon for leading trainer Corrie Lensley.

Bongo Dance - 14:20 Flamingo Park

Bongo Dance impressed everyone on his only run to date when hacking up by a hard held three and three quarter lengths here over six furlongs near the end of June. As a son of Oracy there is no reason to think the added furlong will do anything other than bring further improvement, and with the experience sure to bring him on (he was sent off a 7/1 shot from an opening 7/2 suggesting that will be the case), he looks one of the best bets on the Flamingo Park card for trainer Stephanie Miller.
