Timeform pick out three bets on Monday's racing.

"He has a useful pedigree and could have more to offer here in a race lacking other unexposed sorts."

Terhaal - 15:20 Leicester

Terhaal's wide draw may not be a big issue here seeing as there is a good amount of pace on and he has Ryan Moore on his back, and it would be no surprise to see him get off the mark for David O'Meara here. Terhaal had just his fifth run at Pontefract on his reappearance and showed his best form to date in finishing second to another improver. He has a useful pedigree and could have more to offer here in a race lacking other unexposed sorts. Ttainted Love looked on a fair mark when third at Newmarket last time and may be the one for the forecast.

Tawdeea - 15:25 Redcar

A typically competitive renewal of this long-established handicap can go to David O'Meara's Tawdeea, who has improved markedly for the switch from Richard Hannon and made it two from three for his new yard last time at Newcastle on his first start at this trip. He has a decent draw and remains open to improvement on what will be just his second start in a handicap. Of the others last year's Wood Ditton winner Winter House could be the biggest danger after a pleasing reappearance at Lingfield earlier this month where he showed some signs of greenness on his second start.

Dew Pond - 16:00 Redcar

Dew Pond had some good three-year-old form at this track including a win and two seconds over this C&D, and with a steadily progressive profile at the end of last season (barring his last run which is easily excused on heavy ground) he could go well now back at this track after seemingly needing his reappearance run at Ripon last time. Ingleby Hollow beat the selection over a mile and a half at Pontefract last season and looks the biggest danger if able to perform to that sort of level over this longer trip.
