Timeform pick out three bets from Pontefract and Windsor on Monday...


"Trainer Chris Wall could hardly be in better form at present (five winnners from 14 runners this month)..."

Rococoa - Pontefract 16:40

Rococoa showed much improved form to get off the mark on her handicap debut at Nottingham last time, looking well-suited by the return to sprinting and appearing to win with more in hand than the official winning margin suggests. That doesn't look the strongest form in the context of this race, but Rococoa remains open to more improvement after just five starts in her short career to date and is fancied to follow up with a defeat of the similarly unexposed Get Up And Dance.


Magical Daze - Windsor 18:25

Magical Daze shaped as if retaining all her ability on her seasonal debut at Ascot (beaten less than four lengths) and still looked in need of the run when fifth at Bath last time. This is a far weaker race than she has been contesting of late and - 5 lb clear of the remainder on Timeform ratings - Magical Daze should prove extremely difficult to beat if returning to the form she showed when successful here in August. Time Medicean is feared most for a yard that knows what it takes to win this race.


Sahara - Windsor 19:25

Sahara returned from over six weeks off the track with an eye-catching effort at this venue last time, enduring a troubled passage as the field entered the final two furlongs and likely to have finished much closer with a clear run. Trainer Chris Wall could hardly be in better form at present (five winnners from 14 runners this month) and, although the improving Third Rock is an obvious danger, Sahara is fancied to get the better of that rival for the second victory of her career.
