DARBY BRIGHTS (8) will be fitter following her latest run which was her 2nd run back for her 3YO term. Resuming from inside the 2nd line she was sent forward early to face the breeze and fought hard when 2nd to THE FRAME. Last start at AP she found the pocket trial and sprinted sharply to score a nice win. This is easier and she looks mighty hard to stop.
OUR DASHER (1) finally lands an alley after being no closer than gate 5 in 7 career starts. She has been well-beaten in her 4 runs back this campaign, but with the improved gate she will settle much closer than she has been in recent starts and can be a big improver.
NOT ALWAYS (4) was well supported here over the 1780m trip 2 starts back and from gate 2 was in the pocket trail when finishing a 3m runner-up behind HEADWIN. Forget his last start when making an error, he has place claims in this.
YARRAMAN DOLLY (3) is a first starter by Melton Gunna out of the six-win mare Left at Yarraman. A 4YO mare making her debut for trainer Kerry Ebert, she was a big trial winner and with natural progression out of that can podium in this.
SELECTIONS: DARBY BRIGHTS (8), OUR DASHER (1), NOT ALWAYS (4), YARRAMAN DOLLY (3)
SUGGESTED BET: DARBY BRIGHTS (8) to win
