2017 Grafton Cup Odds Update: Supply And Demand Favourite

Despite a wide gate and notable rise in weight the in-form Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained Supply And Demand remains clear favourite in Grafton Cup 2017 betting for this Thursday.

One of 15 winter stayers in the mix for the $160,000 Listed McKimms Real Estate Grafton Cup (2350m), Supply And Demand chases a fourth win on the trot and is out to make co-trainer Waterhouse the first female to prepare four Grafton Cup winners.

Last start the Sebring four-year-old enjoyed a one and a quarter-length Sunshine Coast win on July 1 in the Listed Caloundra Cup (2400m).

Thursday sees Supply And Demand go up from 55.5kg that win, which was his first look at the mile and a half to a testing 58.5kg in the Grafton Cup weights.

Joshua Parr retains the ride on the galloper from the outside gate (15 of 15) and the latest Grafton Cup odds at Ladbrokes.com.au have Supply And Demand as the one to beat at $3.

Occupying the second line of Grafton Cup betting for 2017 at $4.60 is the Chris Waller-trained Montauk in gate 12 with former Melbourne Cup winning hoop Corey Brown in the saddle.

Last start Waller’s in-form More Than Ready four-year-old finished second to Gallic Chieftain at Rosehill in the Listed Winter Cup (2400m).

That followed a third to Supply And Demand over 2000m at Rosehill in late June.

Montauk meets Thursday’s favourite far better in the weights getting in on the 54kg minimum and could be hard to hold out under those light kilos.

Third elect in Grafton Cup markets at $9 is fellow 54kg lightweight More Energy for Jason Coyle, the Fastnet Rock six-year-old coming off a brave second to Rudy in the Group 3 Tattersall’s Cup (2200m) at Doomben from June 24.

Rounding out the single-figure fancies at $9.50 is fellow Tattersall’s Cup graduate War Baby who has been on fire for her Beaudesert-based trainer Kelvin Hickmott this season.

The five-year-old Warhead mare comes off four top three runs including in the Tattersall’s Cup and most recently the Caloundra Cup when only two lengths beaten by the winner Supply And Demand.

Larry Cassidy continues his successful winter racing association with War Baby on Thursday, the mare a livewire place chance again with 54kg in gate 10.

The best of the hopes over $10 to take out the title include proven Grafton performer Get On The Grange ($12), the 59kg top weight Benzini ($13) looking to improve on a sixth in the Caloundra Cup and the Brian Smith-trained Feltre ($14).
