Fairview Race Analysis - Friday, 22 March

Race 1
Race Summary: BLOWIN IN THE WIND has now been fitted with blinkers and rates the one to beat in the opener. BLUE PALACE was quietly fancied and was not disgraced when finishing third on debut - watch for improvement. OH MY GUCCI GIRL is improving with racing. YELLOW JACKET must be included in Quartets on her debut effort. Watch debutante CAN'T SAY NO.

#1 Blowin In The Wind, #2 Blue Palace, #3 Can'T Say No, #5 Oh My Gucci Girl

Race 2
Race Summary: PLAY ACT narrowly beat RAVILIOUS on debut but the latter won his next race and now has a 4kg claimer up. HIDEKI was heavily backed on debut and duly arrived under pressure. He can only improve. FAMILY LAW and FROSTY RECEPTION both won their respective debuts at 33-1 odds - either could have a say.

#2 Hideki, #1 Family Law, #4 Ravilious, #5 Frosty Reception

Race 3
Race Summary: MY TRUE LOVE is ready to run a big race, however, stablemate CRYSTAL MAIDEN appears stable elect on riding arrangements and must be respected on debut in new surroundings. Other inmate, LOVE SONG, cannot be ignored for money. ELUSIVE MATA appears moody but could get into the reckoning. Others looking for minor money.

#1 Crystal Maiden, #8 My True Love, #2 Elusive Mata, #6 Love Song

Race 4
Race Summary: HAROLD THE DUKE was narrowly beaten on debut in new surroundings and should make his presence felt. PUERTO PLATA (won maiden on debut in new surroundings) and could be stable elect on riding engagements, however, stable companion KEEP THE FORT could challenge. REACH FORTHE STARS should run an honest race and shouldn't be far off. Recent maiden winner MO FLOW, LORD NELSON and maiden DAWN CLOUD could make the Quartet.

#10 Harold The Duke, #6 Keep The Fort, #5 Puerto Plata, #3 Reach Forthe Stars

Race 5
Race Summary: Competitive. Muzi Yeni appears to have opted for STORM COMMANDER as opposed to PEMBROKE and METAR so it could be wise to follow. UNYIELDING cannot be ignored for money and should be thereabouts. ALINGALONGA holds DOWSER on recent form but it could get a lot closer. LIGHT WITHOUT and GLOBETONIC are more for the shortlist.

#9 Storm Commander, #4 Unyielding, #6 Globetonic, #2 Alingalonga

Race 6
Race Summary: Hot in form FAIRY KNIGHT could take the East Cape Guineas (Listed) over 1600m and make it 4 straight wins. Brett Crawford's raiders ZOOMIE and ZIL MORIS are no slouches and are well in at the weights - they won't go down without a fight. ANATOLIAN SILVER looks well above average and will be tested. Others are looking for minor money.

#4 Fairy Knight, #1 Zoomie, #2 Zil Moris, #7 Anatolian Silver

Race 7
Race Summary: The East Cape Sprint Cup (Listed) over 1200m sees SILVER FALCON looking to make amends for his disappointing last effort when encountering problems. KHAYA'S HOPE could finish off strongly but PRINCE OF FIRE and INHERIT THE RAIN should be on top of him. SMORGASBORD is finding form and holds THE WINTER LAKE on their recent meeting. COUNTDOWN and CLIFF TOP are not to be ignored.

#3 Silver Falcon, #1 Khaya's Hope, #6 Smorgasbord, #7 Inherit The Rain

Race 8
Race Summary: CONCERTO is running well and should give a good account of herself. STATE OF MIND finished 0.50 lengths ahead of DE JANEIRO and owing to an apprentice claim is 4kg better off. She should confirm. However, the latter needed the outing - watch. BEAU KALA and COLORAMA could get into the mix.

#1 Concerto, #3 State Of Mind, #11 De Janeiro, #5 Beau Kala

Best Win: #1 BLOWIN IN THE WIND
