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

"...now switched into handicaps, she could be potentially well treated off a low weight."

Timeform on Palace Queen

#11 Bold Viking - R7 Fairview (14:35 BST)

Bold Viking sets the standard on our weight adjusted ratings and he looks the one to be with, despite this being a competitive affair. Streak of Silver promises to push him all the way but the selection comes here after being beaten far last time out, despite finishing seventh, and he can leave that behind him and build on his penultimate run, when second over C&D.

#10 Palace Queen - R8 Fairview (15:10 BST)

Another competitive affair but ready preference is for Palace Queen off the back of her impressive win over C&D last time out. She pulled over four lengths clear of her nearest rival that day and now switched into handicaps, she could be potentially well treated off a low weight. She takes on more exposed rivals, with Watsonia and Smart Suzy looking best of the rest.

#14 Escape to Vegas - R9 Fairview (15:45 BST)

Escape to Vegas is another unexposed sort that left her debut effort behind to win a minor event next time out. She put a length and three quarters between her and the next and despite that form not being the strongest on offer, she rates as the type to do better now handicapping. Self Assured can do the best of the rest.
