Bairnsdale Tips 26/07/2022


Race 2 No. 16 EXTRA SMART – ($3.40)

The second emergency, EXTRA SMART, sneaks into the field here with a couple of scratchings and the Peter Moody-trained galloper can go a few spots better than a debut effort that saw her run 4th on the Pakenham Synthetic behind Lonsdaleite on July 3. That came over the 1100m and she led them up that day at a solid clip before just tiring over the last 100m. The daughter of Capitalist went 2.6 lengths slower than standard benchmark figures, which is better than what any horse in this race has produced in their careers. The runner-up horse out of that has since gone on to claim a Saturday race at Morphettville. She should strip fitter for this assignment and will look to save every inch of ground from the inside barrier. 



Race 1 No. 5 LADY VUITTON – ($4.40)

Looking for an early winner here and it is LADY VUITTON that can break the drought. She narrowly missed at Moe over the 1600m on July 16, registering her fourth minor placing in eight starts. The Matthew Brown-trained galloper settled handy that day and produced the fastest last 200m on what was a Heavy track. She should strike at least a Soft at Bairnsdale and went 2.4 lengths slower than standard at her latest, which is better than what any horse in this race has produced in their careers. The daughter of Dundeel has the pace to overcome the wide gate and we can expect to see her fighting out the finish.
