Cranbourne horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (12:25) Frankston Sand Soil Maiden (1200m)
#5 – Sandy Prince @ $2.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sandy Prince has finished second in all three starts to date, but he should be exiting maiden grades very soon.
The Hayes-trained three-year-old ran second behind The Garden last start, which has since run well in a tough race on Saturday.
Craig Williams sticks with him and punters get fair odds.
Race 2. (13:00) AFC Peter & Lavella Darose Maiden (1300m)
#9 – Moolah Moolah @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Patrick Keane-trained mare comes off a third placing at Moe and she handled the wet track, which bodes well for this run.
She is a daughter of Squamosa that was beaten by only a length and we don’t think she will take long to score her maiden win.
Barrier 11 doesn’t have too much of an impact in the heavy conditions, so expect a big effort.
Race 3. (13:35) Frankston Mazda Maiden (1600m)
#6 – The Awesome Son @ $1.85 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Awesome Son didn’t fire at Flemington last time out behind Seiners Express, but that was a much harder race than a midweek maiden.
He is a four-year-old that finished third on debut at Bendigo behind some smart types, so his form lines stack up and that’s why he’s the odds-on favourite.
$1.85 could shorten on race day.
Race 4. (14:10) Hertz Cranbourne BM70 (2080m)
#2 – Lady in the Sky @ $3.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Lady in the Sky handled the wet conditions at Sandown last start and she’s capable of going back-to-back.
The Mike Moroney-trained five-year-old paid double figure odds to win, and although she’s much shorter this time around, punters still get value odds.
Her best form comes on rain-affected tracks, so expect another tidy effort.
Race 5. (14:45) O’Brien Real Estate BM70 (1600m)
#3 – Capodanno @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Shea Eden-trained six-year-old rarely runs a bad race and his best form comes over this distance. He owns three wins from four attempts the mile, which is a good sign.
The former Kiwi has figured in the finish in 11 of his 13 starts and punters get each-way odds for this race, so he is worth putting in selections.
Take the $4.20 before it drops.
Race 6. (15:20) Mercedes-Benz Mornington BM70 (1200m)
#6 – Brazen Bully @ $2.25 – Bet @ Sportsbet
With two wins from three starts this preparation, Brazen Bully is the horse to beat. The four-year-old scored a tough win at Sandown last start and he’s more than capable of winning again.
He loves wet tracks with three starts for a win and two placings, so he is always around the mark and we’re not surprised by the betting support.
Punters should expect his odds to firm on race day.
Race 7. (15:55) De Bortoli Wines BM64 (1300m)
#1 – Capri Lane @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Capri Lane showed plenty of ability last campaign and the five-year-old gelding has won fresh up in the past.
The son of Proisir scored at Hawkesbury last time out and he returned this preparation with a trial win at Warwick Farm, so the ability is there.
Sydney form should stack up nicely in Melbourne.
Race 8. (16:30) Tab Long May We Play BM64 (2080m)
#2 – Eaglemont @ $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Eaglemont finished third fresh up at Sandown and the former Irish runner should be much better off for the run.
The five-year-old son of Camelot wasn’t far behind them over 1600m, so the rise in distance and added fitness only helps his chances.
Barrier five suits and punters should be confident.
