Timeform pick out three bets from Roscommon on Monday.


Act of Valour - 16:55 Roscommon

Act of Valour should have found his reappearance at Navan last time aiding his development, but he improved on his sole two-year-old start nonetheless and remains open to further improvement here in a race which possibly isn't as deep. He gets the narrow vote, with Apparition and Time Dee just 2 potential threats in a competitive opener.

Greanta - 18:30 Roscommon

Chapter Seven has never been the easiest to win with and looks worth taking on here as favourite. Right down at the bottom of the weights Greanta makes some appeal on the pick of her form from last season, which included a good third in a huge field at the Curragh on her penultimate start. She looks worth chancing at the prices in a fairly weak looking race.

Holeinthewall - 19:30 Roscommon

Holeinthewall was poor when we last saw her run, over hurdles Navan last time, but he is in top hands and was in good heart in this sphere prior to that, so makes plenty of appeal here after a break. Stonehall Jack is proving consistent and should be thereabouts once again with conditions in his favour, while Thomond and Motown Bob are both capable of playing a part in the finish.
