Timeform pick out three bets in South Africa on Thursday

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

Timeform on Foreign Source

Maverick Girl - Fairview R6 (14:35 BST)

Maverick Girl completed a hat-trick in fine style over this distance on the all-weather track last month and wasn't disgraced over further back here last time. A past C&D winner, Maverick Girl will appreciate the drop back in trip now and is fancied to quickly resume winning ways. Afrikaburn can also play a major part, while Red Granite also commands respect.

Foreign Source - Fairview R7 (15:10 BST)

Foreign Source has made a good start to his career, building on two promising efforts to record an impressive win on his third attempt in a maiden here in March. He wasn't in the same form switched to the all-weather last time, but he should have more to offer on turf, and rates the most exciting prospect in this line-up. Hooves Of Troy can get the better of the remainder for second, while Captain Anne Bonny looks best of the rest.

La Roquette - Fairview R8 (15:45 BST)

La Roquette hasn't won for a while (July 2018), but she put in one of her best performances for a while when a close sixth over five furlongs here last time, and is handicapped to strike with this longer trip in her favour. Gimme Katrina is most likely the biggest danger, while Dame Commander is another that should go well.
