Josh Baudains has made quite a name for himself on the Fibresand in 2012 with five winners from only eight rides and looks like adding to his tally on TOBRATA. The latter hasn't raced since December but was only beaten a head over C&D on that occasion and is just preferred to Favorite Girl. Mike Appleby's filly scored over track and trip three weeks ago and should make a bold bid to follow up today, while Hunters Belt makes most appeal of the remaining trio as he's finished runner-up on his last couple of starts at this track and was fourth over hurdles at Newcastle earlier this week.
