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

Raven Girl - Fairview R5 (13:10 GMT)

Raven Girl's last two wins have come at this course (one over C&D) and she proved at least as good as ever on her latest win last month. She is fancied to follow up now, with Perfectproportions most likely the toughest threat, while Studio Blues has a place chance as well.

Madame Speaker - Fairview R6 (13:45 GMT)

Madame Speaker was prolific last year and has been better than ever of late, too, yet to finish out of the first two and winning at this course. A five-time course winner, she is expected to prove too good for this bunch. Just Chaos also makes the shortlist, while Drop Kick could also get a look-in.

Exelero - Fairview R7 (14:20 GMT)

Exelero was a promising second over this C&D on her first start this year and, she could be worth forgiving a lesser effort since when sent off favourite. She has won three times over C&D and can return to winning ways. Sir Frenchie should be right in the mix too, while Union Jack also merits respect.
