Timeform's US team advise backing three bets on Monday...

New York trainer David Jacobson ships Mrs. Bean to Suffolk Downs in a bid to get her back on track, and the move could well be rewarded in race 7 (20:40 BST). Disappointing on her last two starts at Aqueduct, Mrs.Bean should appreciate the lower standard of racing at the Massachusetts circuit, and she also has a favourable draw outside of her main pace rival. Jacobson is a master with these low-level claimers, and looks to have found a decent opportunity here.

Genuine Flare competed in some pretty useful maiden races when trained by Bill Mott, acquitting himself creditably, and he looks the sort to make his mark at Presque Isle Downs (race 1, 22:25 BST) for new trainer Nick Caruso. Genuine Flare has run to a similar level of form on both turf and dirt, suggesting that the Tapeta shouldn't be an issue, and he looks worth backing at around 4.0.

Developer looks the bet of the night in race 3 at Presque Isle Downs (23:15 BST), as he comes out of what Americans would term a "key race", with no less than six separate horses winning next time out, having competed in that Keeneland allowance event. This Presque Isle Downs allowance race has nowhere near that sort of depth, and Developer is a strong choice.

Timeform US Smart Plays:
Suffolk Downs race 7 (20:40 BST) win back #6 MRS. BEAN at 4.57/2 or longer
Presque Isle Downs race 1 (22:25 BST) win back #6 GENUINE FLARE at 4.03/1 or longer
Presque Isle Downs race 3 (23:15 BST) win back #3 DEVELOPER at 2.77/4 or longer
