Timeform identify three bets at Fairview on Friday...

"...is back to what is surely his optimum distance now and should take the beating."

Timeform on Sullenberger

#9 Sullenberger - Fairview R6 (14:35)

Sullenberger justified market support to make a winning return to action over this course and distance in June. He failed to back that up when stepped up in trip here last time, but is back to what is surely his optimum distance now and should take the beating. Mary O'Reilly is a classy performer who should also be able to make her presence felt, while Africa Victory can pick up the pieces for third.

#1 Elusive Heart - Fairview R7 (15:05)

Elusive Heart has won three of her five races this year, including twice since the resumption. She didn't need to improve to land a listed race here last time, and, provided she takes this step up in trip in her stride, she should be going close again. Statute finished third to the selection last time and may be able to go one better this time, while Duchess Of Bourbon is another with solid place claims.

#7 Tiger In The Sun - Fairview R8 (15:35)

A winner at this course on debut over Christmas, Tiger In The Sun has been tasked with some tough assignments this year, and he has performed with credit of late, finishing third in listed company in his last two outings. This represents a return to calmer waters for him and he makes plenty of appeal on his handicap debut. All The Sevens is having his first run since joining up-and-coming trainer Montana Turner and could have more to offer for a new yard, with Afleet Flyer looking the best bet for third.
