Grafton Tips July 14


The Provedores Class 1 Showcase Handicap Tips (Race 3)


Grafton Next Best Bet - Race 3 No. 9 Kokoro

While this gelding will likely prosper over a mile and further as this campaign wears on, he is the most talented runner contesting this seven-furlong Class 1.

Kokoro is set to start his third campaign, having made an impression in his first with a win at start two and that saw him well in the market for the Spring Stakes.

The son of Real Impact was doing his best work late in a lead-up trial and Hugh Bowman taking the first-up engagement for John O'Shea is a significant booking.


Sky Racing World Mother's Gift Tips (Race 4)


Grafton Feature Bet - Race 4 No. 6 Oakfield Arrow

While this mare appreciates some cut in the ground, Soft 6/7 is as wet as she wants it, with the four-year-old not handling a heavy track either side of a break.

After setting a good early clip fresh at Rosehill, Oakfield Arrow didn't let down on a very testing surface and will find firmer ground for Tuesday's assignment.

She's improved out of sight second-up off poor first-up showings via her last two preps, which included a Midway win in Jan and that's good enough for this.

Village Green Hotel Class 6 Showcase Tips (Race 6)


Grafton Best Bet - Race 6 No. 9 Parksville

Despite placing over seven furlongs via a Country Qualifier, this son of Vancouver is better suited at the sprinting caper and resumes over 1175m here.

As a rising five-year-old with 11 starts, Parksville is still lightly raced and has put together a handy record so far, recording four wins and four placings overall.

Arriving off a trial win, this gelding makes his own luck and compared to some handy enough races last prep when carrying weight, he's very well in here with 56kg.

Southside Pharmacy Grafton Cup Tips (Race 7)


Grafton Feature Bet - Race 7 No. 2 Dr Drill

After a good return behind Ayrton, this very honest gelding from the Maher & Eustace yard split a handy pair in the Scone Cup and was giving weight to both.

Third-up at Rosehill, Dr Drill looked a near good thing in the McKell Cup and despite looming, Skyman (winner) exploded off a suck run on the best ground.

He was also giving 5kg to that winner and in a competitive Grafton Cup where there's question marks on all runners, Dr Drill is the most trustworthy of these.


Sir James Kirby Handicap Tips (Race 8)


Grafton Value Bet - Race 8 No. 11 Hidden Hail

With two trials ahead of this return and resuming on his home track on Thursday. I'd be surprised if Hidden Hail wasn't ready to fire fresh over the five furlongs.

The five-year-old showed good improvement from his first winter hit out to his second, being looked after initially on a Heavy 9 before rolling along on June 21.

Most runners in this are very capable on their day, which includes this five-year-old, who was Saturday class in Brisbane before joining the Shane Everson yard.
