There is racing from Kempton on Monday afternoon

Timeform pick out three bets from Kempton and Hamilton on Monday.

"Though he disappointed in a first-time hood at York last time and is clearly not easy to win with, he sets the standard down in grade here and will be very hard to beat if reproducing his penultimate run when fifth at Thirsk over 1m."

Unsuspected Girl - 16.10 Kempton
The lengthy Unsuspected Girl has improved since being switched back to the all-weather, winning at Chelmsford (apprentice race) in August, finishing second here over 12 furlongs, and then winning a five-runner event back at Chelmsford last time (14f) by 1¾ lengths from Press Gang. She was suited by the emphasis on speed there and, dropping back in trip today, remains with potential. Michael's Mount is respected, following a good run at Haydock last time, while His Kyllachy represents a yard in form and this longer trip should suit.

Darrington - 16.20 Hamilton
Darrington hasn't won since landing a small-field handicap at Newmarket's July Course last summer, however this useful handicapper produced his best effort this season when a three lengths fifth at Ripon in May. Though he disappointed in a first-time hood at York last time and is clearly not easy to win with, he sets the standard down in grade here and will be very hard to beat if reproducing his penultimate run when fifth at Thirsk over 1m. Thornaby Nash bounced back to form last time and could be the one to follow him home ahead of Biff Johnson.

Canny Style - 17.20 Hamilton
Canny Style was suited by the 1f longer trip and showed improved form to get off the mark at Carlisle last time by 1¼ lengths from First Sargeant, staying on to lead over 1f out. The runner-up has filled the same position since, giving the form some early substance, and Canny Style can win again with her yard in good form. Gold Show was a good winner at Newcastle in July and gets the nod for the forecast spot.
