The Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott trained stayer Supply And Demand has been installed as the early favourite as he chases his fourth win on the trot in the Listed $160,000 McKimms Real Estate Grafton Cup (2350m) at Grafton on Thursday.

Bookies at Ladbrokes.com.au have Supply And Demand as the $3 favourite for the Grafton Cup ahead of the Chris Waller trained four year old Montauk at $4.60 while Jason Coyle’s More Energy at $9 and Caloundra Cup third placegetter War Baby at $9.50 are the only other runners under the $10 mark.

Co-trainer Gai Waterhouse said that Supply And Demand is rock hard in condition and will have no trouble running out the distance after leading all of the way to rack up a hat trick of wins in the Listed $175,000 The Pump House Caloundra Cup (2400m) at the Sunshine Coast on July 1.

“Supply And Demand has been in tremendous form of late, notching up a hat-trick of wins in impressive style,” Waterhouse wrote on her website.

“He has a big weight on his back, however he stays the distance well and is rock hard fit.”

“He is a tough, honest horse who has gone through his grades beautifully and he has a great chance of making four wins in a row. See you in the Winner’s Circle.”

Supply And Demand kicked off his winning sequence with two victories at Rosehill with an all the way win in the $100,000 Eremein Handicap (1800m) on June 3 followed by a win in the $100,000 Kensei Handicap (2000m) a fortnight later.

Supply And Demand will have to overcome a couple of hurdles to keep his winning momentum going and is up 3kg on his Caloundra Cup win with 58.5kg and the Sebring four year old wasn’t given any favours at the barrier draw, coming up with the outside gate in the fifteen horse Grafton Cup field.

Josh Parr has kept the ride on Supply And Demand and will more than likely try to cross the field in the early stages and adopt the same front running tactics that saw the pair lead all of the way to win the Caloundra Cup.

Second favourite Montauk is coming off a last start second in the Listed $125,000 ATC Winter Cup (2400m) at Rosehill on July 1 and will meet Supply And Demand 5kg better in the Grafton Cup after finishing one and a quarter lengths third to the Waterhouse and Bott trained stayer in the Kensei Handicap.

Stradbroke Handicap winning jockey Corey Brown rides Montauk who has also drawn a wide barrier at twelve.

    with browser compatibility but I thought I’d
    post to let you know. The style and design look great though!
