We have focused solely on the Grafton card today and are really confident on our three selections on the program. Each of these horses has either been in or near the winners stall at their recent outings with their form suggesting another victory is not far away.
Grafton is a Good 4 with the rail out 2m from the winning post to the 1600m. Also 4.5m out from the 1200m to the winning post.
*SCRATCHED* Lightly raced gelding DOCTOR ON ICE will look to atone for his last start defeat in this very winnable race here today. Settled midfield before coming home strong when beaten by 2 lengths at Ipswich a fortnight ago. Looked good going through the line and will definitely appreciate the extra distance it faces this time around. Drawn a tad wide so look for Tegan Harrison to position him just behind the speed. Looks a key player and sure to have plenty admirers. Hard to beat.
SAVVY ROCK is in red hot form and looks perfectly placed to rack up the hat-trick after two impressive victories. Proved too good for his rivals when coming home strong to win by 1.3 lengths on this track a fortnight ago. Will get the run of the race just behind the speed and watch out for this Fastnet Rock gelding storming home late with any luck in the straight. Looks the winner with the perfect draw. Huge chance.
THE SOCIALIST has been very unlucky finishing up runner-up at his past two starts but does look like he has found the right race to bounce back into the winner’s circle in the final event of the program. Stormed home last start on the Gold Coast to just fail to reel in the winner going down by a nose in a tight finish. Has an excellent record over the distance and watch for this Snitzel gelding coming home like a train. Has a good turn of foot and we are expecting a big performance here today. Rates well.
