There is racing from Leicester on Monday
There is racing from Leicester on Monday

Timeform pick out three bets for Monday's UK racing.


Mikro Polemistis - 15:55 Redcar

Mikro Polemistis is still a maiden, but has shaped well on several occasions this season, including when second at this track in May and when filling the same spot at Carlisle in September. She went like the best horse at the weights at Catterick last time, seemingly paying the price at the business end for a big move around the outside, and she can can gain compensation here from 2 lb lower in the weights.

Tawdeea - 16:20 Leicester

Tawdeea got back to his best when third over C&D earlier this month, where he was suited by being held up in a strongly run race. He should get the same sort of scenario again today, with the likes of Fattsota, Noble Gift and Dashing Star in the field, and should run well from the same mark with first-time cheekpieces enlisted. Buonarroti has been in good heart recently and could be the chief threat with Ryan Moore booked for the ride.

Rebel Lightning - 17:20 Leicester

Rebel Lightning required a drop in to selling company to get back to winning ways after finding life tough enough in handicaps this season from marks in the mid-seventies. He won in good style over this C&D (by two and a quarter lengths), however, and although he is now back handicapping, he is running in 0-70 company for the first time and should remain competitive, especially with top amateur Simon Walker booked for the ride.

Timeform UK SmartPlays:

Back Mikro Polemistis in the 15:55 at Redcar
Back Tawdeea in the 16:20 at Leicester
Back Rebel Lightning in the 17:20 at Leicester
