Timeform pick out three bets from Fairview on Friday.


Dixie Express - Fairview 11:05

Dixie Express gets in here off of bottom weight after being put down another 3 lb but looks to have a solid chance on her best form which includes five career wins from just the sixteen starts. She rarely steps foot outside of Kenilworth but may be woken up by a change of track this morning, and dropped back in trip to five furlongs again is a sporting bet in a decent race here.

Over Drive - Fairview 11:35

Over Drive has some solid enough placed form to his name (five from seven starts), but gets the nod despite being a bit frustrating. Over Drive steps up in trip to seven furlongs this afternoon after a fourth over six furlongs last time out here (seventh has won since), and with trainer Justin Snaith back in form, Over Drive can gain a well-deserved success at last this morning at the eighth attempt.

Laikipia - Fairview 12:10

Laikipia may not look the most obvious selection but can make it a double on the card for his powerful connections. Despite only finishing fourth at Kenilworth last time out, Laikipia was only beaten less than two and a half lengths at the line and her overall profile is head and shoulders above that of her rivals here. Gavin Lerena is as good as it gets in the saddle, leaving Laikipia with a solid chance of success this afternoon.

Win back #7 DIXIE EXPRESS in R2 (11:05) Fairview
Win back #1 OVER DRIVE in R3 (11:35) Fairview
Win back #2 LAIKIPIA in R4 (12:10) Fairview
