Timeform on Time Stands Still

#3 Carioca - Fairview R7 (14:10)

Carioca took advantage of a return to calmer waters to run out a 2 ¼ length winner over this course and distance last month and looks well placed to follow up having been raised 6 lb. Mendocino finished second to the selection last time and can fill that place again, while Mary O'Reilly also holds solid place claims.

#13 Varsity Bourbon - Fairview R8 (14:45)

Varsity Bourbon got back on track in no uncertain terms with victory at this course last time and a 6 lb rise in the weights for that win looks fair enough so he is taken to go in again. Beethoven has a cracking record at this venue and is probably the chief threat, while Tarsus looks the pick for third.

#6 Time Stands Still - Fairview R9 (15:20)

Time Stands Still more than held his own against some experienced horse when second on debut last month, beating home a subsequent winner, and he did his bit for form when getting off the mark at the second attempt at this course last time. He sets the standard in this contest and expected to be bang there on his handicap debut. Wicked Grin makes the most appeal for second, while Forty Days also commands respect.
