Timeform US SmartPlays: Friday July 29
Timeform pick out bets from Monmouth on Friday.
"With rain forecast, the versatile Buon Gusto should have a decent chance whether this scheduled turf race stays on the grass or is switched to the dirt."
N E Johnny Francis - Monmouth 17:50
The market leaders, Will and Club Scout don't set a particularly high standard in this opening maiden special weight, so it could pay to take a chance on first-time starter N E Johnny Francis. His trainer has a fair record with debutantes, and he should be a value price.
P J's Bad Boy - Monmouth 20:33
Runner-up on his last two starts, P J's Bad Boy ought to go very close to winning this $12k claiming contest. Connectable and Shake D' Bone look the ones most likely to chase home the selection.
Buon Gusto - Monmouth 21:38
With rain forecast, the versatile Buon Gusto should have a decent chance whether this scheduled turf race stays on the grass or is switched to the dirt. Morning Line favourite Hurricane Ramiro looks the main threat, particularly if the race stays on the turf.
