Fairview Picks - Friday, 8 March

Race 1

Race Summary: A difficult start to the card with modest horses. BYTHELITEOFTHEMOON did not show her best last time but does seem capable of much better and could bounce back to beat these rivals. BEST INTENTIONS is consistent and should make a bold bid at scoring. SHINE IN MEMPHIS was a disappointment on local debut but does seem capable of better and deserves respect. QUEEN OFTHE PALACE makes her local debut after a change of trainer and could improve. BELLA ATTRICE is battling to win a race but is capable of contesting the finish once again.


#4 Bytheliteofthemoon, #3 Best Intentions, #2 Queen Ofthe Palace, #1 Shine In Memphis

Race 2

Race Summary: An interesting race. SERENDIPITOUS has run well in all three starts and looks the one to beat. ANUSCHKA'S WORLD was not beaten far on debut and could show good improvement. COWBOYS DON'T CRY is a Buffalo Bill Cody colt who makes his debut. HIDEKI will represent the very popular Richard Fourie-Alan Greeff combination and can score on debut. SWEET AND TRUE is an Oratorio colt who could be ready to run well on debut.


#7 Serendipitous, #4 Hideki, #1 Anuschka's World, #5 Sweet And True

Race 3

Race Summary: SUN SPECTACULAR proved a disappointment in the Western Cape in that she has yet to win a race but her form does look solid enough to pick up this race on local debut after a change of trainer. JET BUND has been runner-up three times in four local starts and should contest the finish again. RUN FOR ME is in good heart and should fight out the finish once again. It is hard to see any of the others in this race actually winning it.


#2 Sun Spectacular, #3 Run For Me, #1 Jet Bund, #9 Sundrop

Race 4

Race Summary: IMHOTEP lacked extra late last time over further. He was expected to win that race and is a confident choice to make amends and win this time around. BELLE'S FIRST WAVE is in good form and should be involved with the finish yet again. JOE HARMAN has reached 40 starts without winning but can earn some more money if in the mood. UBUNTU WARRIOR will strip fitter this time and could go closer. DUMISANI is holding form and is not out of it. WATCHMYTAIL needs to do more to win but could play a minor role.


#1 Imhotep, #7 Dumisani, #4 Belle's First Wave, #5 Joe Harman

Race 5

Race Summary: Trainer Alan Greeff has a decent hand in this race. HEATHCLIFF has improved with each run since returning from a break. He has Richard Fourie aboard this time and should make a bold bid at scoring. Stable companion BOURNEMOUTH has been impressive over 2400m and there is every reason to suggest this longer distance will not be a problem. ZATARA MAGIC does not always show his best form but can go close if in the mood. PEACE IN OUR WORLD is back to his best and is clearly not out of it.


#1 Heathcliff, #4 Bournemouth, #3 Peace In Our World, #2 Zatara Magic

Race 6

Race Summary: Not too many to rule out from winning this race. SISTER LIGHT seemed to find the distance a bit short last time out. She won well in her penultimate start and can bounce back to win, but it is a competitive race. AND WE DANCED always gives of her best and is course-and-distance suited so deserves the utmost respect. ROSE OF BAYEUX ran on well from a weak position last time and could surprise. DAME OF FLAMES is unreliable but ran a cracker last time and has a winning chance. UNITED EXPRESS and SILVERY BLUE come off nice wins but step up in class.


#4 Sister Light, #3 Dame Of Flames, #2 Rose Of Bayeux, #1 And We Danced

Race 7

Race Summary: A wide spread of runners might be needed in this leg of the Pick 6. SYMBOL OF LOVE is holding form well and deserves a winning turn. EXECUTOR has not shown her best in her last two runs on the turf but jockey Richard Fourie is sticking with her and that is a positive sign. COLD TRUTH is holding form and is clearly not out of it. VARIETY BREEZE has always been at her very best over this distance and could upset. WHATABALL is unreliable but can earn some money. JADE'S CABERNEIGH is in good form and has a winning chance as well.


#6 Symbol Of Love, #10 Jambo Sana, #5 Cold Truth, #4 Executor

Race 8

Race Summary: Another race where it is probably best to load up with runners for the exotics. MR BODACIOUS liked his return to the turf with an easy win and can follow up if in the same mood. ARTURO is unreliable but did run a good race last time and can do even better this time. FERRANDO is speedy and can contest the finish. WARM WINTER NITE does seem better than his last run would suggest and was unlucky in his penultimate start. RUSSIAN EMPIRE is unreliable but capable of earning some more money.


#3 Mr Bodacious, #11 Arturo, #1 Warm Winter Nite, #6 Bennelong Point
