Timeform pick out three bets from Fairview on Friday.


Smart Suzy - 12:25 Fairveiw

Smart Suzy is up against a big field and plenty of improving sorts as well, but showed so much promise on her debut here over a furlong shorter that she just has to be the selection. A daughter of the great Silvano, she ran on strongly in her only race to date to be beaten just three quarters of a length at the line by Astisia and as that looked a decent enough race at the time, and Smart Suzy is sure to improve for the experience, she looks the one to beat for trainer Gavin Smith.

Gitango Tonight - 13:35 Fairview

Gitango Tonight arrives here with the best recent form of all the twelve declared after a second and a third here, the first over seven furlongs and the latest over this mile when beaten just a length and a half in a decent looking contest. She left the money behind that day after being sent off a 2/1 chance but ran on well enough to suggest she can do ever better now, and Gitango Tonight can give trainer Gavin Smith a quick-fire double on the cards.

Vous Et Var - 14:45 Fairview

Vous Et Var may be a five-year-old gelding but he hasn't finished winning yet judged on his half-length second to the consistent Tevez here over a furlong further last time out. Bred to be a sprinter (by Var out of a Candy Stripes mare), he has won three of his twenty starts so far, the latest over six furlongs here at the end of June, and if Grey Cheyne can get him out of the stalls smartly today, Vous Et Var will take all the catching here regardless of the drop back in trip.
