Timeform pick out three bets from Flamingo Park on Monday.

"...he ought to take all the beating again..."

Bletchley - 12:15 Flamingo Park

Bletchley arrives here looking for his hat-trick after two very easy course and distance wins in February and earlier this month, and although he has incurred the wrath of the handicapper for a four and three-quarter length defeat of Heavy Hitter last time out, the rest were strung out behind in almost single file giving the form a solid look about it. Only a four-year-old, he looks to be on an upward curve for the von Willingh Smit stable who do so well here at Flamingo Park, and another win from Bletchley is eagerly anticipated.

Silver Glacier - 13:45 Flamingo Park

Silver Glacier looked to be returning to something akin to his best last time out when a quarter-length second to Storm Faerie here, and with the Tienie Prinsloo yard pretty successful with the runners they send here, he seems unlikely to sneak under the radar but is worthy of selection nonetheless. One win from eight starts over the mile here proves he handles the surface, and as the first two pulled six and a half lengths clear of the third last time, connections will feel that Silver Glacier has every chance of going one better this afternoon stepped up in trip.

Yesan Star - 15:45 Flamingo Park

Yesan Star is our second hat-trick seeker of the day after Bill Human's experienced gelding won his tenth race on his seventy-first start here earlier in the month to follow up a course and distance victory in February. Although winning distances have to be taken with a pinch of salt on the sand surface, he did look as if he had plenty in hand as he cruised past the line over the six furlongs, and as he is even happier over this trip he ought to take all the beating again, despite a rise of seven pounds from the handicapper.
