Timeform pick out three bets from Fairview on Wednesday.

"A repeat of that may well be enough to see her come home in front here."

Stormy Eclipse - 11:40 (GMT) Fairview

Stormy Eclipse can make the most of the late withdrawal of market rival True Master which looks to have left the way clear for the grey son of Dynasty to win his eighth race overall, and his third in his last four starts. A win here over nine furlongs was followed by a third here on the grass in the Algoa Cup over ten furlongs, and a win on the same course in the Memorial Mile, and although off the track for over a month this looks little more than an exercise canter for Stormy Eclipse this morning.

Mischievous - 12:20 (GMT) Fairview

Mischievous isn't the most obvious selection in this competitive-looking maiden, but sits pretty off bottom weight for trainer Yvette Bremner who has snapped up top jockey Lyle Hewitson to do the steering. Mischievous has had nineteen losing starts but has run well enough in a few of them to suggest she has a win in her, with a three-length fourth to Saint-Lazare last time out here, and even a repeat of that may well be enough to see her come home in front here.

Boxley - 14:40 (GMT) Fairview

Boxley is the clear form choice in this small but select field after winning on her debut here over five furlongs back in September, and following that win with a pair of second places here, one on the polytrack over five furlongs and the latest on the turf when tried over six furlongs, beaten a short head at the line on both occasions. Those races are working out well, and if she can repeat those efforts here as seems more than likely, then Boxley looks far too strong for her rivals now.
