Here are our Grafton Tips for today:
Race 5 - 4:35PM XXXX GOLD CLASS 2 HANDICAP (1410 METRES)
Five podium finishes from seven starts this preparation suggests that Lismore galloper ROSE BOUQUET (best odds $3.40 with BlueBet) has what it takes to bring up win number three for this campaign. Last start, the War mare beat all but one home in a BM58 over 1310m on her home track. She ran that trip, 1.6 lengths slower than benchmark, the best in this field by 4 lengths. She also posted the fastest final 800m-200m sectionals as she came from back in the field and travelled three-wide without cover for most of the race (after drawing gate 10 of 11). Far better placed here, she gets the breaks from gate two and maps to settle in the back half of the field, this time with cover. Kirk Matheson returns to the saddle today and he is responsible for steering the four-year-old to both career victories to date. With a little luck in running, she can get the job done here.
Race 6 - 5:10PM JACARANDA PRELUDE (1106 METRES)
Unbeaten in four starts at the track, the John Shelton-trained TARA JASMINE (best odds $1.65 with Sportsbet) is well placed here to keep that record intact today. Last start, the Cowboy Blue mare had her fourth start at this track and was sent out a white-hot $1.55 elect in the Class 3 contest over 1175m. She didn’t let her backers down either, putting two lengths on that field, after coming from the rear and lumping 61.5kgs with Ben Looker in the saddle. She ran her last 600m, 6.9 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this field and despite carrying the grandstand that day, posted the fastest final 800m-200m sectionals for the race. That is great form to bring into this event today and with Ben Looker remaining aboard, she looks the testing material here and is our Best Bet 🏆 for Grafton today.
Race 7 - 5:50PM GRAFTON DISTRICT SERVICES CLUB CLASS 1 HANDICAP (1106 METRES)
Currently at double-figure odds, the Glen Innes galloper PRUE’S PROPHET (best odds $10 with Unibet) did enough last start to suggest third-up today she can give this a real shake. Last start, the Choisir mare had her fifth visit to this track and was without a podium finish until she lined-up in a Class 1 over 1400m. She raced on the speed that day and was looking good until she was collared inside the final 100m by a couple better on the day and had to settle for third prize. She ran that trip, 2.9 lengths slower than benchmark, a new personal best for her and still the best in this line-up by 3 lengths. She has drawn out today but will strip even fitter after two runs this time in. Jodi Worley is in the saddle where she has been for 10 of the mare’s 13 starts. With a little luck in running, she is capable of figuring here and looks great each-way value in this field.
