Timeform pick out three bets from Fairview on Wednesday.

"She may be perfectly suited to this trip having been beaten over slightly further last time out..."

Star Burst Galaxy - 13:30 Fairview

Star Burst Galaxy has been in superlative form recently with two wins and a second in her last three races and if the daughter of the mighty Var can reproduce that form upped to a mile here, then she will take all the beating for trainer Tara Laing. Last time out she was beaten by the narrowest official margin over a furlong shorter but she ought to stay further as she gets older, and as she finished a half-length second over course and distance in the Breeders Guineas in March, Star Burst Galaxy deserves a shot in this class.

Without Permission - 14:05 Fairview

Without Permission won a Class D Novice Plate here over course and distance with a bit up his sleeve and returns to handicap company off a rating of 69 this afternoon, which seems acceptable. He has placed off this mark and higher in the past so is not being asked to do anything more than he has already achieved, and as a son of Rock Of Gibraltar, Without Permission should go well here coming from off the expected fast pace over this trip.

Gitango Tonight - 14:45 Fairview

Gitango Tonight has placed in all three races since her maiden victory here on the polytrack including a length and a quarter second to Widow's Lamp here on grass in early December. Equally at home on either surface, she may be perfectly suited to this trip having been beaten over slightly further last time out, and with her second here over the mile in December working out well with the winner and eighth winning next time out, Gitango Tonight looks a spot of value here.
