Kapour Tops Grafton Cup 2015 Betting

Running as Race 7 at 3:55pm (AEST) as the headline event on Grafton Cup Day, this year’s $150,000 Listed Blanchard Haulage Grafton Cup (2350m) field features 16 stayers.

Heading the Grafton Cup odds at Ladbrokes.com.au, where punters can enjoy a Bonus Bet for 2nd or 3rd on the handicap clash, is Maher’s last start winning Toylsome five-year-old Kapour at $3.70.

Drawn a treat in gate six and carrying 56kg with Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle, the imported gelding posted his fourth win at start number 12 at Rosehill on July 27 taking out the Listed Winter Cup (2400m) on a Heavy (8) track.

He had the same hoop aboard for that impressive four and a half length black-type win over the mile and a half but carried two kilos less so will need to be improving to go back-to-back in the winter features.

Only two other runners are at single figures in the current Grafton Cup odds with the Gai Waterhouse-trained top weight Bonfire ($5) and Reigning ($7) drawn at opposite ends of the filed in barriers 14 and one respectively.

Blake Shinn rides Manduro gelding Bonfire on the hefty 59kg from an outside alley, the galloper in top form after a Hawkesbury Gold Cup fourth and second to Kapour in the Winter Cup last time out when carrying the same weight he’s allocated for Thursday.

Sydney’s premier trainer Chris Waller trains Choisir six-year-old Reigning who gets in well with 54.5kg, which is a notable drop from the 57kg he carried into a close third behind Sir Mako over 1900m in the wet at Rosehill just last Saturday.

At double figures but still in the top half of the markets are then Bevan Laming’s Mornington Cup winner from March Banca Mo ($10) with the outside alley (16) coming off a fourth in the Group 3 Tatt’s Cup (2400m) at the Gold Coast on June 20, the super consistent Maurus ($10) who has run top two in all but two of his nine career starts to date, Waller’s Ipswich Cup winner Danchai ($11) last seen running third in the Winter Cup and Ipswich Cup third placegetter Darci Be Good ($11).

The next best in betting representing even more value are the likes of the Gerald Ryan-trained Tatt’s Cup runner-up Shoreham ($13) and Dream Folk ($15) to be ridden by in-form apprentice Winona Costin.
