Timeform pick out three bets in South Africa on Monday

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Fairview on Monday...

"That form makes her the one to beat here..."

Timeform on Love Talk

Highland Hero - Fairview R1 (10:10 GMT)

This doesn't look the strongest race of its type, and it will be disappointing if Highland Hero isn't able to get his head in front following his latest runner-up effort over six furlongs here. My Boy Jack makes most appeal of the remainder, while Hidden Power is not out of it for third place.

Love Talk - Fairview R6 (12:40 GMT)

Love Talk is in a rich vein of form at present, winning a handicap here last month and losing little in defeat when finishing runner-up over the same C&D last time. That form makes her the one to beat here so she is preferred to Double Black and Don't Stop Dancing.

Tsessebe - Fairview R7 (13:20 GMT)

Tsessebe hasn't won for a while, but her run when only narrowly denied over this trip in November makes her of firm interest. If forgiven her latest run she should be bang in the mix, with Aloysius and Bakkies feared most.
