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

Timeform on Step Lively

#1 Bushy Park - Fairview R5 (12:45 GMT)

Bushy Park came close to landing a tightly contested 5f handicap here in October and made the most of a step up in trip to run out a two-length winner at the same venue a month later. Her recent efforts on the whole have had a lot to like about them and she may take the beating here if able to maintain that standard. Flame Of Fire looks to be the biggest danger, while Travel Guide also deserves some consideration.

#7 Step Lively - Fairview R6 (13:20 GMT)

Step Lively got off the mark at the first time of asking when landing a maiden at this course last month and looks the clear one to beat on her handicap debut. Orlanda was a course winner here in September and can give the selection the most to think about, while Elusive Diva looks the best option for third place.

#1 Meryl - Fairview R7 (13:55 GMT)

Following two successive victories at this track in August and September, Meryl was slightly disappointing when favourite last time out, but was still not beaten far and can take this opportunity to regain the winning thread. Ontenderhooks looks the most likely to chase home the selection, while Delia's Delight heads up those chasing third place.
