Graebarb should make a bold bid in a race that lacks strength in depth.
Bairnsdale R1 No.9 - GRAEBARB
Nice filly here returning for her second race preparation on the back of a good trial at Cranbourne (9/10), jumped well from the inside and held them off to the line - only nabbed by the impressive Atomic Lokade (slick winner!). Draws favourably in a race that appears to lack much depth, well weight with the claim from J.Martin, too. Filly who should make the grade in city class races in time, 1000m fresh looks her go.

Bairnsdale R8 No.2 - SMART DART
Gelding was a dominant winner here four weeks ago over 1200m (in faster time than other 1200m race on the day), has been kept on the fresh side for this and like that he again draws well on the inside. Beat a good field last start and fancy that this lot doesn't really pose much of a threat. Will be 1-2 pairs back and strong to the line off what appears an even tempo on paper.
