Timeform US SmartPlays: Monday July 25
Timeform pick out three bets from Saratoga and Presque Isles on Monday.
"Mr. Roessink has a fine record on synthetic surfaces (four wins and a place from eight starts), and he can further enhance his CV by taking this low-level claiming contest...
Verve's Tale - Saratoga 18:00
Still a maiden after six starts, Verve's Tale is unlikely to scale the heights of her Preakness runner-up sibling Tale of Verve, but ought to be good enough to finally get off the mark in the Saratoga opener. Girl Talk should provide the stiffest opposition.
Historical Tablet - Presque Isle 22:25
A fair 2-y-o allowance contest gets the Presque Isle card underway, and Historical Tablet can make the most of her inside stall by going straight to the lead and making all the running. Get Sassy can chase her home, with Political Animal also worthy of respect.
Mr. Roessink - Presque Isle 00:05
Mr. Roessink has a fine record on synthetic surfaces (four wins and a place from eight starts), and he can further enhance his CV by taking this low-level claiming contest. The consistent Ripinandatearin should run his usual game race and is the one for the exacta.
