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

"...he looks to have been found a good opportunity to get off the mark..."

Timeform on Raiden

#1 Farfalla - Woodbine R2 (18:29 GMT)

Second on debut at maiden claiming level, Farfalla could only manage fourth when upped in class last time. A return to the maiden claiming ranks should show her in a better light today. Love On a Fence may be next best, with J M R Bold Vision another to factor in.

#10 Slam - Woodbine R4 (19:28 GMT)

Slam can take advantage of a drop down in class in this $6.5k claimer. Runner-up in a similar contest two starts ago, he was only fifth in a better grade last time, but ought to be much more at home back at this level. O'Kram may emerge as the main danger.

#1 Raiden - Woodbine R6 (20:36 GMT)

Raiden has been absent for 103 days, but that shouldn't be too much of an issue, and he looks to have been found a good opportunity to get off the mark at the fifth time of asking. Wise Men and Terrafirma can be the ones to push him closest.
