Easy Form Summary
HARNOVA has the form on the board and his race experience should be the difference in this 2yo race. SNITZ looked smart winning a Gold Coast trial and will no doubt have support for the Matthew Dunn stable. BEARLY THINKING and BENASONG are winning hopes.

Easy Form Summary
FABRY is yet to win second-up but has placed 3 times from 4 tries and loves to make own luck on the pace. DUTY DUDE will get back in the running but there should be plenty of speed for him to be rattling home at the finish. CHARLEE BEAR is unbeaten here at Grafton.
