Timeform pick out their three best bets from Sedgefield on Monday…

“…this looks as good an opportunity as any for David O’Meara’s charge to open his account…”

Timeform on Ingleby Hollow

DOMESTIC DIVA – Sedgefield 13:15

DOMESTIC DIVA improved on her hurdles form at the first time of asking at Catterick last month, beaten only by an unexposed pair, and she would appear to have plenty in her favour dropping into a 0-100 this afternoon; indeed, a 1 lb rise in the weights is potentially lenient with that initial chasing experience sure to bring about plenty of improvement. Of the remainder, Trooblue rates the obvious threat after her win over C&D 10 days ago, while Steel City is also considered on his own chasing debut.

INGLEBY HOLLOW – Sedgefield 13:50

INGLEBY HOLLOW shaped encouragingly when third on his most recent outing at Wethery, left poorly placed in a race where those ridden prominently came to the fore, and doing well under the circumstances to be beaten only three lengths (never nearer than at the finish).

He certainly showed enough to suggest that he is up to winning a race of this nature when things pan out differently for him, and this looks as good an opportunity as any for David O’Meara’s charge to open his account; he sets the standard on weight-adjusted ratings and could have even more to offer with champion jockey Richard Johnson taking over in the saddle for the first time.

BERTIE BLAKE – Sedgefield 16:00

BERTIE BLAKE was disappointing at Wetherby last month, but a trio of placed efforts prior to that (including a career-best second at this venue) read well in the context of this race, so he could well be the answer with Thomas Dowson taking 3 lb off his back for the Philip Kirby yard that continues in top form (five winners from last 15 runners). Raise Your Shades is a potential improver handicapping up in trip, while Our Delboy also needs a market check on his second run back from a break.
