Timeform pick out their three best bets in the UK on Monday...


"...The step up in trip will suit Alphabetical Order, who makes his handicap debut off a workable mark..."

Spring Bird - 14:05 Redcar

Spring Bird has her first start for Alan Swinbank and the former Dandy Nicholls-trained runner looks on a good mark, having dropped 8 lb from her peak. All three off Spring Bird's wins have come on flat tracks so Redcar should prove ideal (has run well here before) and she can bounce back to form at the main expense of the consistent duo of Penny Royale and Racing Angel.


Alphabetical Order - 15:10 Redcar

The step up in trip will suit Alphabetical Order, who makes his handicap debut off a workable mark. Alphabetical Order won three races over hurdles in 2014 - over as far as 20 furlongs - and has caught the eye in three runs in maidens this winter. David O'Meara's runner steps up in trip today and can win this weak race from Roja Dove.


Dark Command - 18:00 Redcar

The concluding handicap is a very competitive affair however Dark Command looked a horse to keep on the right side of when last seen in September. Trained my Michael Dods, Dark Command made his handicap debut at the course and shaped with lots of promise in third. Dark Command has been dropped 2 lb despite that good run and looks the sort to progress well this season.
