Timeform pick out their three best bets from Turf Paradise on Monday...

"...taken to get back on track in a contest that doesn’t have as much depth to it..."

Timeform on Astonishing Tweet

#2 Del Mar Diva - Turf Paradise R3 (22:23 BST)

Del Mar Diva returned to form back on dirt last time and now goes first-off-the-claim for new connections. She is taken to follow up, with Two Steps of Glory and Play Nice rated the main dangers.

#5 Impetu - Turf Paradise R5 (23:20 BST)

Chief Know It All has been installed as a short-priced favourite on the Morning Line, but he hasn't run for 249 days so may be worth taking on with Impetu. A good third in a similar contest last time, Impetu looks a solid alternative to the likely market leader.

#5 Astonishing Tweet - Turf Paradise R6 (23:48 BST)

Astonishing Tweet was beaten in a better race than this last time but is taken to get back on track in a contest that doesn't have as much depth to it. Michael Mundo may be next best, while Smooth Criminal is fancied for third place.
