Timeform pick out three bets from the UK on Monday...


Tael O' Gold - 13:50 Chelmsford City

Tael O' Gold improved for the step up to this trip last time at Newcastle, which makes sense on pedigree (dam won over a mile as a two-year-old). She has been dropped 1 lb in the weights and now eases in grade slightly, so is taken to get off the mark at the seventh attempt. Our Boy John doesn't seem to do much quickly but did run a fair race in fourth at Kempton last time, so could be a threat.

Fort Bastion - 15:30 Chelmsford City

This is competitive stuff but it could be worth chancing Fort Bastion as he makes his return to handicaps following a couple of easy wins in claimers for different yards. He is now in the more-than-capable hands of Brian Ellison, and looks fairly weighted on the pick of his form (5 lb below his last winning mark). Rousayan and My Target head the list of dangers.

Stamford Raffles - 16:30 Chelmsford City

Stamford Raffles and Aldreth had the race between them at Newcastle last time (the former prevailed by a head), and with the third Cavalieri boosting the form seven days ago, they look the pair to focus on again here. Although Aldreth was shuffled back on the turn, Stamford Raffles seemed to score with a bit up his sleeve, and as the more progressive of the pair, gets the narrow vote.
