Timeform bring you three bets for Monday...


"This is competitive stuff but the eye is immediately drawn to Takingrisks, who, although perhaps a fortunate winner last time at Kelso, naturally remains open to improvement on his handicap debut."

Saffron Prince - Plumpton 14:30

Saffron Prince didn't get anything like the full Scudamore treatment when third last time at Kempton, but he improved plenty on his chase debut at Ludlow nonetheless, and with more to come on just his third start in this sphere, he looks the way to go, taking on some exposed rivals here. Gary Moore is in excellent form and Green Ogre is the selection's biggest danger.


Takingrisks - Ayr 15:15

This is competitive stuff but the eye is immediately drawn to Takingrisks, who, although perhaps a fortunate winner last time at Kelso, naturally remains open to improvement on his handicap debut. Flemensfirthleader - who was set to finish ahead of Takingrisks that day at Kelso but for a late fall - has boosted the form since, and Takingrisks seems to have been handed a workable handicap mark. Caledonia has a low win rate, but perhaps rates the biggest danger to the selection as he drops in class here.


Bravo Zolo - Wolverhampton 16:00

Bravo Zolo was unsuited by the emphasis on speed at Lingfield last time, finishing third with running left, and with the potential for a better gallop here over this longer trip, he is a confident selection to get off the mark for Jeremy Noseda at the third attempt. Our Channel ran right up to his best when winning at Chelmsford last time, and he could give the selection most to think about.
