Grafton Cup Day Tips & Best Bets – Thursday 9th July, 2020

Thursday will see plenty of quality thoroughbred racing across the country with our focus being on the meeting at Grafton in New South Wales. Take a look at our horse racing tips and best bets for Thursday 9th July, 2020.

Grafton – Race 2 12:50PM AEST

BEST BET: No. 3 Enterprise Keren – Bet Now: $2.60

She has drawn a wide barrier, but Enterprise Keren is still the horse to beat in this contest at Grafton this afternoon.

The Mossman filly was able to break through for a maiden race win at Ballina last start in dominant fashion and she still has plenty of upside to improve.

She has the quality to overcome her wide barrier draw and I expect her to start shorter than the $3.60 that is currently available.

Grafton – Race 6 3:20PM AEST

No. 2 Two Big Fari – Bet Now: $2.40

Two Big Fari is another galloper that can overcome a wide barrier drawn to win on Grafton Cup Day.

He has recorded five wins from his eight race starts and he was sent to the spelling paddock after he finished a close fifth behind Gracie Belle in the Country Championship Final at Royal Randwick.

On exposed form he has a clear class edge over the rest of this field and I expect to see him make a winning return to the races.

Grafton – Race 7 3:55PM AEST

No. 1 Sixties Groove – Bet Now: $3.80

Sixties Groove is deserving of his status as favourite in Grafton Cup betting.

He has improved each time he has been seen at the races this campaign and he ran the fastest closing sectionals when he finished second behind Frankely Awesome in the W J McKell Cup.

The step-up to 2350 metres is ideal and he can outstay his rivals late.

Grafton – Race 8 4:35PM AEST

No. 1 Plague Stone – Bet Now: $2.35

Plague Stone may never have a better chance to record another race win.

He failed to fire during his Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival campaign, but on his best form he has a clear class edge over the rest of this field.

His barrier trial win at Hawkesbury suggests that he is fairly forward for his return to the races and he should be able to overcome the big weight.
