Timeform on Viking Moon

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

#6 RUBIX - Fairview R2 (12:15 BST)

RUBIX failed to meet market expectations when only fifth here last time, but she still sets the standard on form and could be worth another chance to belatedly open her account. African Diamond looks the most likely to take advantage should the selection fail to come up to scratch once again.

#8 PERFECTPROPORTIONS - Fairview R3 (12:55 BST)

PERFECTPROPORTIONS has finished close-up in each of her last three starts, including when finding only one too good on turf here seven days ago, and this looks a good opportunity for her to gain the victory her consistency deserves. Studio Blues and Sea Bean complete the shortlist.

#6 VIKING MOON - Fairview R7 (15:10 BST)

The standard-setter on form, VIKING MOON is fancied to take the step up in grade in his stride and extend his unbeaten record to three, with the prospect of even more to come. Brandina and Captain Anne Bonny are similarly unexposed and could be the ones to give the selection most to do.
