There is jumps action from Sligo on Monday evening
There is jumps action from Sligo on Monday evening

Timeform pick out three bets from the evening card at Sligo on Monday.

"Second over fences at the same venue last time, he has the most scope for improvement after just four outings under rules..."

Isabella Liberty - Sligo 17:55

Isabella Liberty produced a career-best on just her fourth start for the Gordon Elliott yard at Ballinrobe last time, staying on powerfully to lead in the closing stages and giving the impression there could yet be more to come in this sphere. Indeed, she is entitled to improve for that first outing in nearly four months and, with a 7 lb hike in the weights offset by the claim of her promising young jockey, Isabella Liberty is fancied to follow up here. Annie Alainn has 3 lb to find with the selection on Timeform ratings, but rates the chief danger on the back of a good third last time.

Bringerofthedawn - Sligo 18:25

Bringerofthedawn showed a fairly useful level of form to open his account under rules at Ballinrobe last month, drawing clear on the approach to the final flight and appearing to win with plenty in hand. Second over fences at the same venue last time, he has the most scope for improvement after just four outings under rules and, although he makes his return to hurdles in what looks an extremely competitive affair on paper (five last-time-out winners in opposition), Bringerofthedawn is expected to register a second career victory with a defeat of the recent Kilbeggan scorer Delegate.

Sizing Alberta - Sligo 19:55

Sizing Alberta hasn't been sighted on a racecourse since attempting to run out in the early stages at Clonmel in December, conceding a considerable amount of ground and never threatening to get involved thereafter. However, he had previously shaped with plenty of promise when second behind the useful Jetstream Jack on his hurdling debut at the same venue and - worth another chance after the unfortunate incident that marred his most recent outing - a reproduction of his earlier form should be good enough to see Sizing Alberta get the better of Pakman here.
