Sense Of Occasion is yet to finish worse than second in five competitive starts this time and currently tops early 2015 Grafton Cup betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au as a result at a generous quote of $5 for success.

Posting a career total of five wins and a further six minors through 16 competitive starts, the Street Sense gelding finished second in the Listed Lord Mayor’s Cup (2000m) on May 9th; progressing to success in the Listed McKell Cup (2400m) on May 23rd before running a close second in the Group 2 Brisbane Cup (2200m) on June 6th.

Danchai has also found great black type form leading into the 2015 Grafton Cup and remains outright second-favourite at a quote of $8.

The British import has been a strong and consistent performer for Chris Waller since arriving in his care prior to his 2014 campaign but has undoubtedly found Australian-best form over three starts this time.

Running a credible fifth in the TAB.com.au Handicap (1600m) first-up on May 6th, the Authorized gelding progressed to third in the Eremein Handicap (1800m) on May 30th before taking out the Listed Ipswich Cup (2150m) last time out on June 13th.

Five runners currently share the third line of early 2015 Grafton Cup betting at a quote of $10, including Banca Mo and Darci Magic.

Banca Mo returned to racing for minor place finishes in each of the Group 3 Hobart Cup (2400m) and Group 3 Launceston Cup (2400m) and returned to the winner’s circle in the Listed Mornington Cup (2400m) on March 28th.

While unable to figure in his next two starts, the son of Tough Speed ran second in the Ipswich Cup before boxing on for a credible fourth in the Group 3 Tattersall’s Cup (2400m) on the Gold Coast over the weekend.

Darci Magic ran a credible fourth in the Listed Scone Cup (1600m) in May and will undoubtedly relish a step-up to 2350m for the first time this campaign in the 2015 Grafton Cup.

Jetset Lad ($21) and Faust ($51) have both posted notable black type success this time and offer great value at long odds in early 2015 Grafton Cup betting markets.
