Timeform pick out three bets from Fairview on Friday.


Kingston Mines - 15:00 Fairview

Kingston Mines is the clear form choice in the race of the day for trainer Alan Greeff and ought to prove difficult to beat. Now aged six, the gelded son of Archipenko hacked up by a length and three quarters in the Listed Glenlair Trophy here last time out over two miles when running on too strongly for his eleven opponents, and with the step up in trip looking ideal, Kingston Mines ought to prove too good for all of these at the weights.

Captain Marooned - 15:35 Fairview

Captain Marooned has to suffer top weight here, but deservedly so after winning his maiden last time out at the seventh attempt over a furlong further at this course. Tara Laing's gelding showed plenty of early speed that day so the return to five furlongs shouldn't be an issue, and with the second and fifth winning since, the form has a solid look about it which can only enhance Captain Marooned's prospects today.

Pete's Girl - 16:05 Fairview

Pete's Girl is in the capable hands of Justin Snaith who has his string in great form lately with numerous victories and eight winners from just the two cards at Kenilworth recently. A daughter of Windrush, she has only had the eight races, winning at Durbanville in September last year on her debut, and showed her best form since when runner up to Elusive Rose here on the polytrack last time out, beaten a length and a half at the line. Dropped a generous four pounds for that run she won't have many better chances of winning a handicap and is running off a mark twenty pounds below her highest, which makes Pete's Girl the one to be on today.
