Flat action
There's action on the Flat at Ballinrobe on Monday evening

"..she is fancied to defy a 1 lb rise and return to winning ways."

Timeform on The Last Indian

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Ballinrobe on Monday...

Scotts Honor - Ballinrobe - 17:50

Scotts Honor doesn't have the most convincing of profiles, but he's been holding his form reasonably well of late in higher grades than this, and is the clear form pick now dropping into claiming company for the first time. He can open his account at the main expense of Cliara, who ran reasonably well in a similar race last time out.

Cafe Con Leche - Ballinrobe 18:20

Xcite is the clear from pick on what she's shown in three starts so far, but she didn't look entirely straightforward when finishing third at Fairyhouse last time out, meaning that at the prices it could be worth taking her on with Cafe Con Leche. He failed to progress from his promising debut when finishing second at Roscommon last time out, but the conditions were particularly tough that day for one so early into his career, and considering he wouldn't have to find too much to take this, he gets the vote to take a step forward here.

The Last Indian - Ballinrobe 19:50

Plenty of these have experience on both the Flat and over the Jumps, including The Last Indian. She ran well on her return to the level to finish second at Gowran Park last time, just failing to claw back an improved sort having conceded first run to that rival early in the straight. That was a solid effort for the grade, and she is fancied to defy a 1 lb rise and return to winning ways.
