SRIKANDI has replaced Our Boy Malachi as favourite for the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 on Saturday after the barrier draw on Wednesday.

The Ciaron Maher-trained mare remained solid at $6 after drawing barrier five for the 1350m feature at Doomben. Our Boy Malachi drifted from $5 to $7 after landing gate 12 in the 16-horse field.

Bring Me The Maid and Sacred Star were the big movers after the draw. Bring Me The Maid, the only three-year-old in the race, firmed from $10 in to $7 after drawing gate two, while Sacred Star (barrier seven) is in from $12 to $9.

Godolphin had mixed fortunes at the draw. Knoydart was notable drifter ($8-$12) after coming up with barrier 15, while stablemate Generalife ($9.50-$7) will jump from alongside Srikandi after drawing barrier six.
