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

"...produced a career best when finishing second over slightly further on the turf last time..."

Timeform on Flight Captain

#8 Wheel of Time - Fairview R4 (12:40 GMT)

Wheel of Time had some fairly useful form for Mike de Kock, and is interesting now starting out for a new yard in a winnable race. He shaped well in a minor event at Vaal last time and looks fairly treated back in a handicap. Sheet Weaver and Querari Viking look the principal dangers.

#11 Vertical - Fairview R6 (13:55 GMT)

Vertical opened her account at this course on her second start earlier this year and, though she hasn't managed to get her head in front since, she looks the one to beat back in a handicap from a good draw. Last-time-out winner Fanfare may prove the biggest danger, ahead of Double Black, who proved better than ever when winning here last time.

#6 Flight Captain - Fairview R7 (14:30 GMT)

Flight Captain has already won twice on the all-weather track here this year, and produced a career best when finishing second over slightly further on the turf last time. A repeat of that performance will see him go very close here. Amazon King and Starflash look best of the remainder.
