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

"...her second over C&D last month is just about the best form on offer here..."

Timeform on Zalika

#6 ZALIKA - Fairview R3 (13:05 BST)

ZALIKA remains a maiden after seven starts, but her second over C&D last month is just about the best form on offer here and a repeat of that might be enough to see her off the mark. Abramo and Cape Leopard head the list of dangers.

#7 LE GRAND ROUGE - Fairview R6 (14:50 BST)

LE GRAND ROUGE stepped up on previous efforts when second over C&D five weeks ago and looks the one to beat if building on that here. Starflash seems the most likely to pounce if the selection fails to deliver, while Anglet heads up those chasing third place.

#1 BEATABOUTTHEBUSH - Fairview R7 (15:25 BST)

BEATABOUTTHEBUSH is preferred to Fresnaye at the prices. Aldo Domeyer's mount has won three of his eight starts this year, including a listed event here last month, and can be relied upon to run his race again. Konkola completes the shortlist.
