Monday’s best bets from the unbeatable Spotlights team at Racing Post

Ballin robe

5.15: Flying Scotsman

This seems like a more manageable task Flying Scotwho gained invaluable experience in Galway and remains at a practicable level. Big names like Red Ball Of Fire, Na Caith Tobac, Baltinglass Hill and Born To Rule are open to further improvements.
Mark Boylan


3.15: Junoesque

The most noticeable contender is Junoesquewho got a C&D doubles this stretch 6-11 last time and is only 2 pounds higher here on her hat-trick bid. Most feared is the formidable Platinum Prince in his new headgear on this throwback in the journey, although Mahanakhon Power returned to the scorers’ list on Saturday in Chelmsford and would be respected if he were quickly eliminated with a penalty.
David Moon


3:30 p.m .: Bellevarde

The return of Angus Villiers (and his 5lb claim) swings the pendulum in favor of Bellevarde. Blue Venture should be in the mix with Secret Potion on this track.
Alistair Jones


7.25: Out of sight

Favor is for Out of sight, ahead of his last scorer colleague Raqisa and the perennial King Viktor. The selection has a solid record since Handicap and is likely to build on his Lingfield success.
Steve Boow


7.05: Captain Cobajay

Justin Landys Captain Cobajay bounced back in shape to make a profitable stable debut on Market Rasen nine days ago and can shed a 5 pound surge if back in similar shape here. Costly Diamond was third behind the selection on his last appearance and should do well again, but a bigger threat could come from Kapsize, who made a bold offer here in fourth over 2m3f last month.
