There are five UK and Irish meetings for punters to peruse on Monday, with cards from Bath, Pontefract, Gowran Park, Plumpton and Wolverhampton.

They go off eight times at Bath between 13:00 and 17:05 and Betfred are providing plenty of offers, with six of these races seeing them pay an Extra Place.

The opener also features the Free Bet if 2nd promotion and 4/1 Gherkin is one to watch, with the blinkers having been retained after winning at Kempton a fortnight or so ago.

Onto Pontefract, where they host another eight contests from 13:15 to 17:15. The Free Bet if 2nd is on the 16:05, while the Extra Place is available on the 13:45 and 17:15.

Young Winston is 6/1 to claim a second win in as many starts in the former, while in the closer, 6/1 Ey Up It’s Maggie might benefit from a step down in grade.

Next up is the Irish card from Gowran Park. The Kilkenny course hosts eight races, starting at 13:30 and running through to the final outing at 17:25.

Betfred have again gone big with their offers with the Extra Place available on the 13:30, 15:47, 16:22, 16:55 and 17:25, while the 15:12 features the Free Bet if 2nd.

Skilled Warrior has pedigree in this type of company and is 11/2, while there could be value in 16/1 Rebel Step having finished ahead of that rival at Cork earlier this year.

Plumpton’s seven races run from 13:55 to 17:22 and this time, the 14:30 provides the Free Bet if 2nd offer. This Handicap Chase could suit 9/4 Chapati, who steps back up in trip to 2m3½f and should be in contention having won over this distance at Stratford in August.

Finally, to the evening card at Wolverhampton, where they host eight races from 17:00 to 20:30. The Free Bet if 2nd promotion is available on the 19:30, while the Extra Place can be found on the 17:30, 19:00 and the closer.

A strong finishing fourth at this course last time out, there looks scope for further improvement from Zartaj, who has come in from 7/1 to 10/3 overnight, but the James Fanshawe-trained Aradena could be another contender in the final race at 7/2, having impressed here before.

Whenever you bet on Horse Racing, Betfred.
