Timeform pick out three bets from Flamingo Park.

Machomouse - 10:20 Flamingo Park

Machomouse has been ultra-consistent lately for Corrie Lensley with six consecutive places from July onwards and the son of Kahal deserves to get his head in front at last. Only beaten a length and a half over course and distance in September, he ran on when dropped back to five furlongs here last time out to be beaten less than two lengths by Tall Mo and with three of these in behind, if Machomouse repeats that effort he should win at last today.

Phil's Power - 11:20 Flamingo Park

Phil's Power is looking to land his course and distance hat-trick here after wins in a maiden in August and a Class E off a rating of 60 on his handicap debut by an eased off seven and a quarter lengths. An eight pound rise in the ratings seems surprisingly fair considering the way he caught the eye that day, and if Cliffie Miller has Phil's Power in the same form today he will clearly take an awful lot of beating.

Zaragoza - 12:55 Flamingo Park

Zaragoza put in a much-improved effort last time out when winning here by a length at odds of 3/1 and is confidently expected to make a bold bid at following up this afternoon under the excellent Muzi Yeni. Only put up the two pounds for that win over the mile here he won't be inconvenienced by the drop back to seven furlongs now as a son of Spectrum (who won the Irish 2000 Guineas and the Champion Stakes for Peter Chapple-Hyam in 1995), and doesn't need to find an awful lot more to double up this afternoon for Corrie Lensley who could be in for a good afternoon.
