Timeform select the three best bets at Fairview on Friday...
"...drops back into handicap company here and should have too much class for his rivals."
Timeform on Earth Hour
Racine completed an astonishing six-timer with victory in a listed race at this venue in June, and she looks worth chancing to bounce back from a below par effort here in November. She has gone well fresh in the past, so the break is not a worry, and she is difficult to oppose on these terms. Carioca produced a career best when winning a maiden at this venue last time and looks the biggest danger to the selection. Duchess Of Bourbon is also worth a mention.
A winner of back-to-back handicaps at this venue last year, Purest Blue has been running well in defeat of late, including when a creditable third here earlier this month. She looks weighted to go close and appeals as the pick at the current prices. Aranjuez and Fiery Fort look the pick of the remainder.
Earth Hour came within a nose of bringing up a hat-trick of victories at this venue in November, and he improved again to finish a neck second in a listed race here last month. He drops back into handicap company here and should have too much class for his rivals. Bell Tower gets the vote for second, while Meraki also makes outside appeal.
