Posting four wins and two minors through his 12 career starts, Kapour began his racing career under the guidance of Francois Rohaut in France before being transferred to the care of Ciaron Maher prior to a brief 2014 campaign.

Finishing eighth in his racing return this time, the Toylsome gelding progressed to sixth amongst notable company in the Dominant Handicap (2040m) at Moonee Valley on June 6th before taking out the Listed Winter Cup (2400m) at Rosehill last time out on June 27th.

Bonfire is yet to herald much attention from punters in 2015 Grafton Cup betting markets but has maintained status as sole occupant of the second line; currently available at a quote of $5 for success.

Finishing outside the first three only a handful of times through his 15 start career, the lightly-raced six-year-old placed a credible fourth in the Group 3 Hawkesbury Gold Cup (1600m) first-up this time; running second in the Winter Cup most recently.

Charged with carrying a race-high 59kgs, Bonfire will also need luck in running form barrier 14 but is sure to be given every chance of success by Blake Shinn.

Reigning has passed through the care of four different trainers since debuting to racing in 2011 but has arguably found his most impressive and consistent conditions since joining Chris Waller’s stable prior to his 2014 winter campaign.

Finishing fourth in the Eremein Handicap (1800m) on May 30th, the son of Choisir returned to the winner’s circle in the Schweppes Handicap (2000m) on June 13th before again placing third in the TAB Multi Plate BM95 (1900m) on July 4th.

Banca Mo ($10), Danchai ($11) and Phrases ($41) have all won stakes staying races this year and are worth consideration at double figure quotes.
