Timeform pick out bets from Fairview and Greyville on Friday.


Henry Tudor 12:15 (BST) Fairview

Henry Tudor runs for the in-form Justin Snaith stable and looks hard to oppose on his recent efforts, and should win this with ease. A run of placed efforts have frustrated supporters of the son of Var and four second places in a row doesn't look good on his CV, but Henry Tudor has been unlucky to run in to some decent sorts including Fool Proof last time out and will be unlucky to run in to anything as good again here.

Elusivenchantment 14:40 (BST) Fairview

Elusivenchantment won a shade cleverly here last time out when seeing off Villa Del Largo by the shortest of margins but the third was a further two and a half lengths away which gives the form has a solid look about it. That was a Class A Pinnacle Stakes over the five furlongs here and with the added furlong today and small drop in class likely to bring further improvement, Elusivenchantment can win her eighth race today for trainer Yvette Bremner and jockey Lyle Hewitson.

Q Behind Me 17:45 (BST) Greyville

Q Behind Me is the value call in this seven furlong maiden for Andre Nel and has bits and pieces of form that suggest he can finally win his first race at the age of five. Fourteen starts have seen four places with a good length and a half third over course and distance in August one of the best of them, though admittedly he did run a little below form when eleventh last time out, though was still beaten less than four lengths at the line after failing to get the run of the race. If Q Behind Me gets a clear run here over a C&D that suits, he ought to prove difficult to beat with the stable in better form now.
