AZAROSE (Race 3 No. 3)

is trained by Kris Lees and comes from the same fam­ily as his re­cent for­mer cham­pion filly Samantha Miss who was the one to deny Se­bring the 2YO Triple Crown. Azarose is a supremely pro­gres­sive mare. She has only had three runs - each one bet­ter than the last, ev­i­denced by her Oc­to­ber 28 win at Port Mac­quarire where she came from off the pace to by nearly 3-lengths over 2012m. Bred to stay. MACKELLAR (Race 4 No. 2)

- is a Bal­lina mare from the Stephen Lee camp rac­ing in tremen­dous form at present. She posted her sec­ond win at start num­ber 15 when bolt­ing away from the oth­ers to score by up­wards of 3-lengths. She was beaten a half-length Caro Cavallo the start be­fore that and as you’ll see be­low, Cara

is a red-hot chance to win on the card as well. It’s good form. CARA CAVALLO (Race 5 No. 4)

- is a lo­cally trained horse from the John ‘Belflyer’ Shel­ton camp. This son of Von Costa De Hero won three on the bounce, all of them here at Grafton, prior to the last start 6th of 10 in a 1400m Bm66 again at Grafton. Was for the most part as ex­pected but got to within 2.8-lengths at fin­ish line which was a mer­i­to­ri­ous ef­fort on his part.
