Bondi Mist hacked up in a low grade handicap over C&D last time. She has every chance on today's terms but OFFBEAT SAFARIS has been taking on much higher-rated competition in claimers of late and a repeat of his second in soft ground at Windsor in June would be good enough to land this. Hawridge Song also went close at Windsor last time with Tijori behind but he has plenty to find at the weights and recent runner-up over a mile, Volcanic Jack, has even more to do on today's terms.
