Timeform UK SmartPlays: Monday July 27

Monday's last Smartplay comes from Windsor
Monday's last Smartplay comes from Windsor

Timeform bring you three bets for Monday's racing in the UK...


"George Margarson's charge gets the nod but Born To Be Bad, who has won two of his last three starts, and handicap-debutante Ttainted Love are accorded plenty of respect, too."

18:40 Southwell - Qaffaal

Qaffaal did well to get up at Thirsk last time (form boosted by runner-up since) and is a confident pick to make light of a 5 lb rise against largely much more exposed opposition. Regal Bond has reacted well to the fitting of a visor and should figure if taking to fibresand at the first time of asking, while Trust Me My Boy did well here in the spring and won't be far away if primed after a break.


19:10 Southwell - Moving Upwards

Having taken a step forward on handicap debut at Nottingham, Moving Upwards could be the answer. Kevin Ryan's charge is 2 lb lower now and still possesses scope for improvement with just four runs under his belt. Legal Shark boasts a similar profile to the selection and it will look significant if there is confidence behind him in the betting. Heavens Eyes is best of the rest.


20:00 Windsor - Elusive Guest

Elusive Guest took a step back in the right direction at Leicester last time, shaping as though this stiffer test could be just what the doctor ordered. George Margarson's charge gets the nod but Born To Be Bad, who has won two of his last three starts, and handicap-debutante Ttainted Love are accorded plenty of respect, too.


Timeform UK SmartPlays:

Back Qaffaal in the 18:40 at Southwell
Back Moving Upwards in the 19:10 at Southwell
Back Elusive Guest in the 20:00 at Windsor
