Timeform on Pierina

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

#10 I LOVE MAMBO - Fairview R5 (13:50 BST)

I LOVE MAMBO didn't need to improve to open her account over C&D earlier this month, but it was still reassuring to see her put her head in front, and she could offer a bit of value on handicap debut in what looks a weak race with the exception of likely favourite Elusive Diva. Steady Way completes the shortlist.

#6 SAO PAULO - Fairview R6 (14:25 BST)

The contest that Lets Play Ball and SAO PAULO fought out here recently could hold the key to this, with that appealing as arguably the best recent form on offer in this line-up. The latter is now much better off at the weights and could be worth backing to reverse the placings, with Streak of Silver feared most of the remainder.

#1 PIERINA - Fairview R8 (15:40 BST)

The two-year-old PIERINA has to give weight all-round to some older rivals here, but her lofty mark (in the context of this race) is fully merited given the promise of her five starts to date, and she is fancied make a successful start to life in handicaps at the expense of Bushy Park and Princess Blitz.
