Timeform on Frankie Two Shoes

#12 Alaskan Fate - Fairview R6 (13:20)

A course winner, Alaskan Fate has been knocking at the door of late, finishing runner-up in her last two outing at this venue, including over this course and distance last time. She is hard to ignore on these terms. Cerelia finished ahead of the selection last time but is 3 lb worse off at the weights this time around, and that looks enough of a pull to see the form reversed. Beyond Temptation makes up the shortlist.

#6 Tarantino - Fairview R7 (13:55)

An interesting listed event, and while Global Drummer is initially hard to look past, winning five of his six outings last year, Tarantino looks weighted to go well and could be up to gaining his first success at this level. He has finished placed in his last two outings and must hold a good chance on these terms. Moon Game gets the vote for third.

#5 Frankie Two Shoes - Fairview R8 (14:30)

Frankie Two Shoes hasn't won since March 2020, but he has looked back to somewhere close to his best since the turn of the year, twice finishing runner-up at this venue. His sole victory did come over this trip, so the step back in distance can be viewed positively, and he looks well in on the pick of his form. Selailai makes the most appeal for second, while Winter Vacation also demands a second glance.
