Timeform pick out three bets from Roscommon on Monday.

"She produced a potent turn of foot to win by two and a quarter lengths off a muddling pace."

Valentana - 17:30 Roscommon

The race which Valentana won last time looks solid form, with four of the first five home arriving on the back of a victory, and a 6 lb rise in the weights looks fair on the face of things. This will probably require another improved effort from Willie McCreery's filly, but with two much-improved efforts on her last two starts, she could easily have more to offer yet and can land the hat-trick here. Ducky Mallon and Ecoeye head the list of dangers.

Chilli Spice - 18:00 Roscommon

A useful looking contest featuring a number of potential improvers can go to Chilli Spice, who represents a yard in top form at present and looked one to follow based on her win in a three-year-old handicap over C&D last time, where she produced a potent turn of foot to win by two and a quarter lengths off a muddling pace. She is up 8 lb in the weights in a better race here, so will need to produce more, but she is unexposed and should have more to offer.

Snow Falcon - 19:00 Roscommon

Simenon is a classy Flat performer who has won three of his last three over hurdles for Willie Mullins and will prove popular in the betting here after taking advantage of a good opportunity in a four-runner race at Cork earlier this month. He may have a job to contend with Snow Falcon however, who sets the standard here on his fifth in the 2015 Neptune at the Cheltenham Festival. Snow Falcon was last seen winning the Grade 2 Boyne Hurdle in February, and though it is a slight concern that he has not been seen since, as the outsider of the pair, he looks worth chancing.
