Perfect barrier draw good news for Srikandi

VICTORIAN trainer Ciaron Maher hopes a perfect barrier draw will help Srikandi bounce back to her best in tomorrow's $750,000 Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1350m).

The filly, who was slowly away and missed a place for the first time in her career when eighth to Hot Snitzel in the BTC Cup (1200m) at the same track on May 9, has drawn barrier five and jockey Damian Browne should have her perfectly positioned with a decent getaway.

"She's an on-pace horse and Doomben's a tight, little track, so it's always nice to draw one-to-eight," Maher said. "I'm very happy with her."

Srikandi, who won the Group 3 Glenlogan Park Stakes (1350m) on Doomben 10,000 day last year, has been the best backed runner in the race and was quoted the $5.50 favourite with Ubet yesterday.

In a wide open market, Our Boy Malachi, Generalife and Scissor Kick were all on the next line at $7.50.
