Timeform pick out three bets from Fairview on Monday.


Mamba Mania - Fairview 12:00

Mamba Mania has has had eight chances at success so far and placed in five of them, but this looks to be her best opportunity yet. A daughter of Mambo In Seattle, she was last seen finishing fourth here over a furlong and a half further but is equally effective at this trip with a third at the beginning of the month, and in what looks on paper like a weaker field, Mamba Mania can come home in front for trainer Alan Greeff and jockey Grey Cheyne today.

Valentinik - Fairview 14:25

Valentinik got off the mark making it third time lucky when running on strongly over half a furlong shorter here to score by a very comfortable two and three quarter lengths hard held last time out. The gelded son of Rebel King looks to be very much on the upgrade based on that run and can only get better with more experience for trainer Yvette Bremner, and with top jockey Lyle Hewitson in the saddle again today, Valentinik should take all the beating here.

Captain's Vista - Fairview 15:35

Captain's Vista takes in a fiercely competitive handicap now after finishing sixth here over shorter last time out. Dropped a solitary pound for that three and a quarter length defeat, he returns to a far more suitable trip now which will bring out the best in the son of the legendary sire Captain Al. Tara Laing's five-year-old gelding has only won two of his fourteen starts so far but with a clear run Captain's Vista can surprise them all this afternoon
