Timeform pick out three bets from Kilbeggan on Monday evening.

"He remains capable of better and looks the type to be able to win one of these races sooner or later."

Dove Mountain - 18:00 Kilbeggan

Dove Mountain is a fair Flat horse who has bumped into a couple of commanding winners on his two starts over hurdles to date for Gordon Elliot. He paid the price for attempting to match strides with the winner over this C&D last time, but he remains capable of better and looks the type to be able to win one of these races sooner or later. William Du Berlais was an expensive purchase and is one to watch on debut along with the same ownership's Finding Touch, who is seemingly being brought along gradually in maidens but remains open to improvement nonetheless.

Cadawill - 19:00 Kilbeggan

Cadawill is a long-standing maiden but has been running well recently, finishing a close second to a subsequent improver in April before finishing third when well backed (caught further back than ideal) at that track again earlier this month. He seems to be building up to something and with Davy Russell taking over in the saddle and with blinkers re-fitted, today could be the day he breaks his duck. The Informer and Tristram Shandy make most appeal of the remainder.

Valyssa Monterg - 20:00 Kilbeggan

A decent novice event for the time of year, featuring 2014 Triumph Hurdle winner Tiger Roll, who got off the mark on chasing debut at Ballinrobe last month in good style. He is entitled to progress from that over fences and should run well under a penalty, but preference is for Willie Mullins' Valyssa Monterg, who got off the mark over fences in decisive fashion over C&D last time. The bare form of that win isn't anything special, but Valyssa Monterg remains open to significant improvement (useful over hurdles) and is expected to step forward plenty on that run here for her powerful connections.
