Here are our Grafton Tips for today:

 

Port Macquarie galloper GOLDEN FANTASY has finished top-three in all three starts this preparation but missed the boat on each occasion. Last start, the Dawn Approach filly was coming off back-to-back runner-up finishes when faced another Maiden field at Coffs Harbour. Drawing out that day, she was trapped three-wide without cover and did a mighty job to finish third, beaten just half a length on the line. On a Heavy 10, she ran the trip, half a length quicker than benchmark, which is seven lengths better than her opposition here. She also posted the fastest final 400m and 200m sectionals for the race. Drawn nicely in gate six today, she maps to settle in the first four and with a trouble-free run, she can finally shake the maiden monkey and break through here.

 

The Brett Dodson-trained IN A STEP is a second-up specialist and looks poised to keep that record intact today. Last start, the Sidestep mare was fresh off an eight-month absence when she faced a BM75 field at the Gold Coast. She settled at the tail of the six-horse field and ran home strongly to grab third prize in the 900m sprint. The four-year-old ran the trip, 3.3 lengths slower than benchmark but rates the best in this field. She also ran the fastest overall sectionals for the event that day. She steps up to the 1000m today where she posted three of her four career victories. Three previous second-up runs have resulted in two wins and a runner-up finish and she is also a winner at the track and trip as well. She drops in grade here and with clear run to the line, she looks hard to hold out today.

 

In career-best form of late, the locally-trained MEMPHIS SQUAW looks ideally placed here in the conditions and will give this a real shake. Last start, the Squamosa mare was coming off a BM58 win at Coffs Harbour when she lined up in similar company on the same track. On a Heavy 10 surface again, she beat all but one home over the longer 1215m trip, after drawing the outside gate that day. That was her fourth-straight run on heavy tracks with podium finishes coming in the last three of them. Today, she draws nicely in gate five where she maps to settle in the first half dozen. Jon Grisedale has partnered the mare on seven previous occasions, including the last two, and is sticking with the mare here. All four career wins have come on rain affected tracks which has her right in the mix today.
