Timeform pick out three bets from South Africa on Friday

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

"He very much stands out on form in this field and can record a third career win..."

Timeform on National Park

#2 National Park - Fairview R3 (12:45 BST)

National Park won a couple of minor events over this distance here earlier this year, and looks the one to concentrate on having seemingly not stayed the longer trip last time. He very much stands out on form in this field and can record a third career win. Madame Speaker has won four of her last five starts and she has to be respected once more, along with stablemate Falcon Rock.

#1 Princess Rebel - Fairview R6 (14:35 BST)

Princess Rebel continued her progression, proving better than ever when winning by four and three quarter lengths over this trip here last time, a class apart from her rivals, and she should continue to take all the beating. Via Seattle is yet to win this year, but left the impression she is close to her best last time, and is taken as the main danger.

#6 Mangrove - Fairview R7 (15:10 BST)

Mangrove arrives right at the top of his game, having won his last four starts at this course, and he again looks the one to focus on. His latest win came over further, but has proved in the past he is equally effective at this trip, and is fully expected to complete a five-timer. Western Wu looks one of the biggest dangers, and is feared more than last-time-out winner Gimme The Stars.
