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

"She again looks the one to beat and can make it five wins from her last six starts..."

Timeform on Studio Blues

#3 Seattle Oak - Fairview R2 (10:40 GMT)

Seattle Oak won her final two starts of 2018 and, though she couldn't justify favoritism when below form over five furlongs here last time, she has to be taken seriously over this longer trip. Larry Jack is foremost among the dangers, while Counting Stars is also an interesting runner.

#9 Studio Blues - Fairview R6 (12:50 GMT)

Studio Blues can boast an excellent record at this course, recording his fourth win in a handicap over this C&D last time, proving better than ever to prevail by one and a half lengths. She again looks the one to beat and can make it five wins from her last six starts. Let It Flow finished third behind the selection last time and could prove the biggest danger.

#7 Border Control - Fairview R7 (13:30 GMT)

Border Control has recorded his last three wins at this course, recording a career best when victorious over a mile here last time, and he again looks the one to focus on back at this trip having showed good speed last time. Aldo looks the most likely danger.
