Timeform pick out three bets from Fairview on Friday.


Curved Light - Fairview 12:40

Curved Light ran a race full of promise on her debut here over a furlong further when a weakening four and a half length third to Smackaroo last month. Whether that was because of the trip or because it was her first run is impossible to tell, but she did show plenty of early speed that day despite running green, and with the second and fourth winning since the form has an above average look to it. Given over a month to recover the daughter of Curved Ball looks a class apart here, and Curved Light ought to win this with a bit in hand.

Coastal Spell - Fairview 13:55

Coastal Spell ran her best race in some time here on the polytrack last time out when a length third to The Wild Mistress and if she can repeat that effort here on grass she has a really good chance of winning her third race on her eighteenth start. The same six-furlong trip awaits her here which seems her best distance and with the Alan Greeff stable in good sorts of late, Coastal Spell looks to have an outstanding chance this afternoon at Fairview.

Cup Cake - Fairview 14:30

Cup Cake has to find a pound at these weights according to the official ratings but looked to be improving again last time out when winning a Conditions Plate here over a furlong shorter. Equally at home over this mile, the daughter of Var represents the in-form Justin Snaith stable who can do little wrong, and with Grant Van Niekerk in the saddle a follow up victory from Cup Cake is eagerly anticipated.
