Timeform pick out three bets from Roscommon on Monday.


Another Rattler - 15:35 Roscommon

Another Rattler ran just about his best race to date in first-time cheekpieces when winning at Listowel last month, and he is given the narrow verdict to follow up here over Barry Geraghty's mount Irish Bulletin, who also looked as good as he has ever done when winning last time at Limerick. Willow Grange won over fences on his last start and is also respected now back over timber.

Call It Magic - 16:35 Roscommon

This is an interesting contest but winning pointer Call It Magic should have plenty more to offer now switched to fences following a fairly useful season over hurdles in 2015/16. Though he is still a maiden over the smaller obstacles, he made the places on his last four starts and should be up to winning this with Ruby Walsh back in the saddle. Space Cadet ran to a similar level as the selection over timber and could be the selection's biggest threat.

He Rock's - 17:05 Roscommon

A first-time tongue strap seemed to do the trick for He Rock's at Galway last time, and his nine-length win was his best performance to date from a ratings perspective. A 9 lb rise in the weights doesn't knock him out of contention here, and he may well be seen to good effect from the front, with a lack of obvious competition for the lead. Tom Horn and Bearly Legal are others to consider.
