2020 GRAFTON CUP – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

Satono Rasen should inject good speed despite the wide draw. Lees & Waller hold all the aces. SIXTIES GROOVE (1) gets the nod for Australian Bloodstock. Latest effort when runner-up to Frankely Awesome will have topped him off nicely for this. He's won three races over the 2400m journey and maps to get a beautiful cart into the race on straightening.

CARZOFF (2) is always thereabouts. Won the Wyong & Newcastle Cups in succession in 2018. Third in the McKell Cup last start behind a few he meets again. Bossy on. Will be right there at the end.

FRANKELY AWESOME (4) is in the game with winning form. There was no fluke in that effort. Greets this in top shape and despite the wide alley should be strong late. LA PULGA (6) deep in a prep but racing well enough to figure. Next best.
