Timeform on Sao Paulo

Timeform pick out three bets at Fairview on Monday...

#4 Sao Paulo - Fairview R5 (12:35 GMT)

Sao Paulo is a four-time course winner at Fairview and is the best of these by some way on form. Her excellent second in a minor event here recently sets the standard and she looks to have easily the best chance. Epic Storm could emerge as the main danger, while Flying Squadron is also one to note.

#3 Close To My Heart - Fairview R6 (13:15 GMT)

Close To My Heart has already beaten a couple of these over course-and-distance and must enter calculations following her runner-up finish here earlier this month. She has performed creditably this term and can add to her good record at this track at the expense of Boldness, with Exclusivity able to take third.

#2 Greatest Achievement - Fairview R8 (14:35 GMT)

Trainer Alan Greeff has four runners in this field but his strongest chance looks to come from Greatest Achievement. The three-year-old outran odds of 50/1 to finish a creditable fourth at this track last time and another bold bid is expected here. Stablemate Elusive Diva is probably the main danger, while Flame Of Fire could also figure.
