Here are our Grafton Tips for today:


Coming off a last-start win, Coff’s Harbour galloper REAL TIME WARRIOR looks ideally placed here to go back-to-back. Five starts back, he beat home a BM58 field here over 2200m. He then finished in his next three starts. The Toorak Toff gelding then made his way here last start and turned it all around. Ridden by Jon Grisedale (for the 12th time), he sat back in the field early, then did his best work late to win comfortably in the end, winning the BM66 by 1.5 lengths. Drawn to do no work early here, Grisedale remains aboard and has a fair idea on how best to ride the six-year-old. Five of the galloper’s seven career wins have come on the Grafton track and he looks the one to beat again.


Finishing no worse than fifth in seven starts this preparation, the consistent LOSE THE SNIP lines up here in the mix again, despite the wide gate. Last start, the Snippetson gelding came off a four-week let-up and faced a sharp rise in grade where he took on a Class 5 field at the Gold Coast. Sitting on the pace, he took the lead in the run home but found a couple a little stronger on the day, finishing third, beaten just over a length on the line. Today he returns to the country circuit and should find this a little easier. Although drawn wide, he has good early gate speed and should manage to cross and find a sit near the pace. He is a track and trip specialist with two wins and a runner-up finish from four starts glowing on his resume. Jon Grisedale remains in the saddle and with just a touch of luck from barrier rise, the five-year-old should be there at the finish.


Track specialist, RUMBERELLA looks ideally placed here and should take a ton of beating today. Two starts back, the Super Easy gelding finished third in a Class 2 over 1550m at Murwillumbah, after being held up in the run home. He then dropped in class and lined up in a Class 1/Maiden Plate, here over the longer 1700m journey. That day, he covered extra ground and made his way to the lead inside the final 300 metres. From there to the line, he held off the challenges to grab victory on the line. Apprentice, Kyle Wilson-Taylor was aboard that day and remains in the saddle here. From gate four, he should find a sit mid-field behind the pace and after the claim will carry just 56kgs. Yet to miss a top-three finish in six starts here, he looks the goods to make it two-straight today at good odds.
