Timeform on Captain Carlos

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

Viking Moon - Fairview R1, 11:00 GMT

Viking Moon created a very good impression when winning on debut over C&D last month, winning by three lengths, and the form of that run leaves him some way clear of the remainder of the field. A repeat would make him very hard to beat, and he's fancied to get the better of Hooves of Troy, another who made a winning start here last time out.

Thokzine- Fairview R2, 11:30 GMT

While Thokzine was below par on her most recent run over C&D at the beginning of the month, she had been shaping well in her two starts prior to that this year, and in what looks a particularly tight maiden, she's the percentage call to open her account. Pashtoosh ran her best race of the season when second over C&D last time and is feared, while Fashion Force is another to consider.

Captain Carlos - Fairview R3, 12:05 GMT

Captain Carlos is still a maiden after nine starts, but the pick of his form is strong in the context of this lowly contest, and a repeat of his standout effort, to finish fourth at Kenilworth back in December, would make him very difficult to beat. Tommy The Builder and Jadeed head the dangers.
