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

"a repeat of that run would make him very difficult to beat"

Timeform on Shallcross

Katia - Fairview R1, 11:40 BST

Katia got back on track when finishing a solid second at this track last month, and a repeat of that run could well be enough to see her gain a much deserved success. River Delta catches the eye on paper and looks sure to be involved as well on her debut, while Domremy shouldn't be far away either.

Silva Key - Fairview R2, 12:15 BST

Course regular Silva Key has gone a while since her last success - her losing run stretches back to September of last year - but she hasn't been doing a lot wrong of late, hitting the frame in each of her last five runs here and she looks worth trusting this time. Symphony In Seven is most likely the leading challenger, though Bertina could well have a say as well.

Shallcross, Fairview R3, 12:55 BST

Shallcross' effort to finish second last time was a career best, and a repeat of that run would make him very difficult to beat - provided he copes with today's step up in trip. Cape Leopard is another who hit the frame here last time and makes most appeal among the rest, while Fujin is another with place prospects.
