Timeform on Mio Grande

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

#4 EDMONDA - Fairview R5 (13:45 BST)

EDMONDA remains relatively lightly raced in the context of this race and could be the way to go having produced arguably her best effort yet when second on her most recent outing at this venue. Alphabet Street and Masterful are others with claims in an open heat.

#6 SAO PAULO - Fairview R6 (14:25 BST)

SAO PAULO and Ontenderhooks both won their most recent starts and could be the pair to focus on, with the former just shading the vote on value grounds, having demonstrated a terrific attitude to get back to winning ways here earlier this month. Meryl looks best of the rest.

#5 MIO GRANDE - Fairview R8 (15:40 BST)

MIO GRANDE was beaten only narrowly on his first foray into handicaps last month, and with the extra distance here expected to be right up his street, he looks a good bet to go one better in the finale. Big Fish and Oasis Queen complete the shortlist.
