Keith Hamer makes Hesperis his best Monday bet and he has a tip for every race at every meeting.

Amor De Mi Vida can secure her third victory of the year in the Follow @attheraces On Twitter Handicap at Yarmouth.

The three-year-old has done Archie Watson proud so far this term, triumphing at Salisbury in May and Haydock in June, seeing her rating hiked from 70 to 80 after that second victory.

Amor De Mi Vida has slipped 2lb since that second win, despite continuing to run largely with credit, just throwing in a couple of disappointing efforts along the way.

The daughter of Dabirsim ran well enough last time out, beaten a length in third when seemingly appreciating the switch back to the minimum trip from six furlongs.

Watson sticks at five furlongs here, and Amor De Mi Vida looks capable of making her mark here.

Mehmo just got caught in the shadow of the post on his most recent run and looks capable of defying a career-high rating of 64 in the Download The At The Races App Handicap.

Latest Racing Stories

The three-year-old has proved pretty hardy for Mick Appleby, and this will be his 17th start of the campaign. But his last three outings have yielded a win, a third and a second, so he is clearly not feeling the pace too much.

That little spell of form has seen Mehmo rise to his current perch - and while he was eventually edged out in the dying strides recently, his mark does not look beyond him, particularly if the ground is on the quicker side again.

Farhh To Shy can make it three wins in five Yarmouth outings, in the Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Handicap.

Trained by George Margarson, the Farhh filly has ventured no further than the seaside track in her career so far - and she clearly likes it at this venue, judged on her victories.

She struck gold on her most recent run last month, overcoming some trouble in running to win cosily on what was her handicap debut.

The handicapper thought 80 was a reasonable starting point, but her length-and-a-quarter verdict has merited a 5lb rise.

Sucellus narrowly prevailed at Haydock just over a week ago, and can make it a quickfire double in the racingtv.com Handicap at Redcar.

Once highly regarded when trained by John Gosden, he failed to realise the kind of potential he showed when winning in eye-catching style on his racecourse bow in December 2018 - and it has been a varied road since.

Initially moved on to Roger Fell, for whom he failed to win in 10 starts, Sucellus has recovered winning form for Oliver Greenall this term.

Rated 90 at one point, he triumphed off 71 at Haydock in July, rising to a mark of 76 before a couple of lacklustre efforts saw him dropped back to 73 to win at Haydock recently.

He has been raised 2lb for that neck success but remains capable from that rating.

Mick Pastor is two from two so far this term, and can add the Download The At The Races App Novices' Chase at Fontwell to his tally.

He benefited from his only rival falling at Worcester in June before getting the better of an odds-on favourite by 19 lengths in a three-runner affair the next time.
