Timeform pick out three bets from the US on Monday.

Irish Hope - Finger Lakes 20:52

Irish Hope disappointed when last seen in November, but was subsequently gelded, and can get back on track here. Foursockrocks, who finished last of six in a much stronger contest at Aqueduct on his only start to date, is the one most likely to take advantage if Irish Hope is below form.

Mental Iceberg - Finger Lakes 21:46

Despite not having run for the best part of a year, Mental Iceberg ticks plenty of boxes on his first start for the Jeremiah Englehart barn in this low-level claimer. His prolific trainer is currently operating at a strike rate of 37% at Finger Lakes, and this one can get the better of Bold Over and El Viejo Verde.

Marchwood - Mountaineer 00:22

Marchwood was posting some reasonable efforts this time last year - form that would see him head and shoulders above this field - but lost his way as the year progressed. In a race that is far from strong, it could be worth chancing that a change of trainer (first start for Burton Sipp) brings about a revival in Marchwood's fortunes.

Timeform US SmartPlays:

Back #1 IRISH HOPE in R7 at Finger Lakes (20:52 BST)
Back #6 MENTAL ICEBERG in R9 at Finger Lakes (21:46 BST)
Back #1 MARCHWOOD in R2 at Mountaineer (00:22 BST)
