Timeform on Freedom Matters

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Monmouth on Saturday...

#6 Guns of Steel - Monmouth R2 (17:27 BST)

Mike Smith is an eye-catching jockey booking for Guns of Steel in this allowance optional claimer and Jorge Navarro's charge should take plenty of beating. Second on his last 2 outings, Guns of Steel can come home in front this time, with Three to Thirteen fancied to chase him home.

#2 Mission Driven - Monmouth R3 (17:54 BST)

Trainer Jorge Navarro can double up in the next at Monmouth, with Mission Driven worth supporting having been narrowly touched off last time. Bold Daddy drops in class while shipping in from New York and looks the one to make the selection work hardest.

#5 Freedom Matters - Monmouth R7 (19:54 BST)

Freedom Matters ran a perfectly good race when runner-up over C&D last time and can go one better in this similar contest. Dull Knife, fourth over C&D on his latest start, looks the main danger, while Threeohtwocassie can also make the frame.
