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

"The lack of early pace on means he should get an ideal sit, and is fancied to prove too strong."

Timeform on Kona Dreams

#1 Kona Dreams - Turf Paradise R6, 22:41 GMT

It's been a while since Kona Dreams last got his head in front, but he's been found a particularly good opportunity to return to winning ways here based on what he's been showing of late. The lack of early pace on means he should get an ideal sit, and is fancied to prove too strong. Hat In The Ring rates as the biggest danger, ahead of Charlie Again.

#5 Monaco Girl - Turf Paradise R7, 23:12 GMT

Monaco Girl needs an early lead to be seen to best effect, something she showed when winning over C&D two starts ago, and unlikely to face too much of a challenge for the lead this time around, she's fancied to score. Naughty Swagger will be looking to match the selection early on and is a danger if able to do so.

#9 Dr John H - Turf Paradise R8, 23:45 GMT

Dr John H was an all-the-way winner here back in December, and he looks likely to get an easy lead here. With that in mind, he's a strong fancy to return to winning ways at a course where he already has proven form. Its A Boy is likely to flash home fast and late and is a big danger.
