Timeform pick out three bets from Fairview on Friday.

"The headgear plus an added furlong ought to see Searching cone home in front this lunchtime."

Free Agent - 11:35 (GMT) Fairview

Free Agent seems a fraction overpriced in the circumstances sitting on bottom weight in this seven-furlong Class C handicap. A winner of four of his 31 starts, he was only beaten half a length here over this trip on turf last month and if he can repeat that off the same mark on the polytrack this morning, then Free Agent will take some passing over his favourite trip.

Searching - 12:05 (GMT) Fairview

Searching is still a maiden after four outings but the daughter of Jay Peg has run well on both her starts here with a length and a half fourth over five furlongs and a length and a quarter second here over seven furlongs last time out, running on at one pace close home. Blinkers seem likely to be added here and the headgear plus an added furlong ought to see Searching cone home in front this lunchtime.

Scribo - 14:45 (GMT) Fairview

Scribo has found his consistency keeping his handicap rating on the high side for his last few races but ran well enough off this mark last time out when fourth to Paper Town here on the grass over half a furlong further in a Novice Plate last month. A son of Miesque's Approval, he shows enough early speed to suggest he could return to sprint trips if necessary, and back on the polytrack there is a chance that Lyle Hewitson will be instructed to allow Scribo to bowl along at the head of affairs today.
