2018 GRAFTON CUP – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

Speed drawn wide with Cut The Mustard, Winkler and Jack Strikes Back the leading trio. Open Grafton Cup.

JUMBO PRINCE was third in this race two years ago but he's a better horse now. Produced necessary improvement when third behind the highly talented Divine Unicorn at Doomben in a G3 race last start. Down in class today and the biggest plus for him is the barrier. Stewart won't spend a penny on him in the run and if the track gets choppy late in the day it'll only bring him on.

FIRST CRUSH has a big hope. Found another level placing his past two when getting out in trip. Some would say needs another win but provided he holds form should be more than competitive. May be trapped wide early but hard to knock.

MONTAUK butters up off a fourth placing at Caulfield over 1800m. No sleeze with over $530,000 in the bank and should appear in all multiples for Chris Waller.

Grafton Cup 3U , 2350m
Race Synopsis: Chris Munce-trained stayer First Crush followed recent seconds in the Ipswich Cup (Listed, 2150m) and the Caloundra Cup (Listed, 2400m) with a good win here. He settled well back in 12th place in the 16-horse field before commencing a wide move from the 600 metres. He hit the front (wide out) at the 100m before going on to score well by a length at the post. The $101 outsider Winkler raced in eighth place, moved up deep rounding the home turn, challenged at the 100m and battled on to take second in a photo from the late-closing favourite Reneged who came from tenth at the home turn with a wide run to grab third in the final strides.
