Timeform pick out their three best bets from Fairview on Friday...

"...she wouldn't need a pitch perfect performance to get off the mark in this maiden."

Timeform on Rebel Wilson

Rebel Wilson - Fairview 12:10

Rebel Wilson's effort to finish third here in a July was a solid one, and she wouldn't need a pitch perfect performance to get off the mark in this maiden. She gets the vote to score, ahead of the newcomer Dancing In Seattle, who makes appeal on paper, while Stavros Christos also commands respect.

Zevanastic - Fairview 12:45

A really good race, in which Zevanastic is the one they all have to beat. He was a big improver when winning here last time, pulling clear of the field and sets the bar high despite a penalty. Seattle Flame can chase the selection home after a good run to finish third here last time, while Story Of My Life is another to come into the reckoning.

Adalberto - Fairview 13:25

Adalberto's three most recent runs at this track have been really solid, an a repeat of his effort to finish third here back in July would give him leading claims in an average maiden. Laine makes plenty of appeal on paper and is a threat if ready to go on debut, while Samurai Dragon shouldn't be far away either, though he would need to bounce back from a poor run here last time.
