Timeform US SmartPlays: Sunday July 31
Timeform pick out three bets on Sunday's card at Monmouth, featuring the Grade 1 betfair.com Haskell Invitational Stakes.
"Almasty should be able to grab an easy lead and will take some catching."
Blue Y Gold - Monmouth 18:52
Six-year-old Blue Y Gold holds his form well, finishing placed on all three starts this year after ending last year with two wins, and he can gain reward for his consistency in this race. Front runners Island Cat and Overcontrol should ensure the race is run to suit Blue Y Gold, too.
Posse Dreamin - Monmouth 19:24
Posse Dreamin has been forced to race wide on all three outings since winning in April, and better luck should see him go very close here. It's hopes that Visionary Ruler takes the field along at a strong gallop, as hold-up performer Posse Dreamin will be difficult to beat if so.
Almasty - Monmouth 21:04
The Grade 3 Oceanport Stakes, one of the key warm-up races for the betfair.com Haskell Invitational, can go to Almasty who won at this level at the back-end of 2015 and has finished runner-up on both his starts this year. Almasty should be able to grab an easy lead and will take some catching.
