Timeform pick out three bets from Flamingo Park on Monday.


Olimpic Airways - Flamingo Park 11:30

Olimpic Airways is still a maiden after thirty races, but has placed on eight occasions and has a good chance of success this morning for a trainer who excels at this sand track more than any other. Two seconds in a row seemed to give the gelding a good chance last time out, but he failed to follow the script before tailing off over the mile. That run can be forgiven and Olimpic Airways earlier form gives him every chance in a weak a race back over his preferred trip.

Hatton Garden - Flamingo Park 12:20

Hatton Garden has only won the once from twenty-eight starts, but has still put in some decent enough efforts since without managing to claim first prize. The daughter of The Sheik was well supported over nine furlongs here last time, but stumbled at a crucial stage losing most of her momentum and can be forgiven that effort. Dropped another 3 lb in the Merit ratings, she has an even better chance this morning and Hatton Garden certainly looks the value call in a race that won't take too much winning.

Sounds of Love - Flamingo Park 14:20

Sounds of Love has a three month break to overcome, but is undoubtedly the best horse in the race and the others will need to improve to get past her here. Stephanie Miller is now in charge after the filly left Michael Robinson in late December and, if she can get her back to her best, which includes a close up fourth at Durbanville, then Sounds Of Love looks to have been found a suitable opportunity for her sand debut in a very poor looking maiden.
