His numbers might not show the greatest figures, but the racing pattern of OUR BONDI BEACH (1) has not matched his barriers in recent starts. At his best when saved for a shot up the passing lane, he lands the ideal scenario for this contest and stalking the speed lands the chance to strike.
PARAVANI (4) fired out from gate 3 here last start and setting the speed in this same grade was gunned down in the closing stages to be 5m in arrears of the winner. Beaten by a second line gate the start prior, he can fire off the arm to take control and will be gripping on in the stretch.
BEAU CISHLOM (5) stepped it out early before taking the trail last week and following the cosy trip behind the speed, made a closing play to get within a half-neck of the winner. He is in the mix.
STREITKID (8) will be needing a slice of luck at some stage to see space from the gate where he looks set to be buried in the run. Finding the trail from gate 5 last start, he will be probing for an opening.
