Timeform pick out three bets from Fairview and Greyville on Friday.


Widow's Lamp - 11:10 Fairview

Widow's Lamp already has some decent maiden form - with a second to Seattle Flame here in February - but has been doing even better recently with a solid Juvenile Plate third, and a career-best second to Precious Pansy in a listed nursery over this course and distance last month. She finished three quarters of a length in front of Singing In Seattle that day, who has won since, and the drop in class really ought to see Widow's Lamp get off the mark here.

Alghadeer - 13:25 Fairview

Alghadeer is in the form of his life recently, posting two second places here, one on the polytrack and one on the turf, before winning his sixth race over course and distance last time out when seeing off Notting Hill by an easy four and three quarter lengths in a good time, despite giving weight away to all but one opponent. That was a career best and even at the age of five Alghadeer seems to be on the upgrade.

Gold Sail - 18:55 Greyville

Gold Sail looks like good value in a competitive race, and although the son of Sail From Seattle only scraped home last time out by the minimum margin in a maiden, that has seen him remain on the same Merit Rating of 57. He seems to be progressing and the step up to a mile may well bring about more improvement.
