Timeform on Joyful Noise

Timeform select the three best bets at Fairview on Friday...

#2 Joyful Noise - Fairview Race 6 (13:25)

Joyful Noise has won four of her seven races to date, including when completing a double with plenty in hand at this venue last month, producing a career best. She is getting better by the run and should be capable of defying an 8 lb rise in the weights. Mendocino and Step Lively look the two most likely to fill the places.

#4 Global Drummer - Fairview R7 (14:00)

Global Drummer didn't need to be at his best to land the spoils in listed company at this venue in November, taking his tally to six wins from seven runs, and he should prove too classy for his opponents in this event. Aqua Delta looks the pick for second, while Sullenberger makes up the shortlist.

#13 At Your Request - Fairview R8 (14:30)

A winner at Greyvile this time last year, At Your Request has been running creditably of late, and a switch to J. P. Nel's stable could be just the catalyst he needs to help him regain the winning thread. Beyond Temptation should be capable of making her presence felt, while Forest Field also demands closer scrutiny.
