Cranbourne horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (12:25) CTC Restaurant At Home Maiden (1500m)
#1 – Boss’n The Moss – Bet Now
Peter Gelagotis lines up the four-year-old gelding that is getting close to a win after posting two placings from three starts.
The son of Castledale finished second at Moe last start and he was only a half-head behind winner Sweet Riviere.
Having Damien Oliver in the saddle helps and he should go close.
Race 2. (13:00) Cranbourne Mitsubishi Maiden (1200m)
#11 – Awkward – Bet Now
Awkward continues to run solid races without winning but she should be breaking through soon.
The James Cummings-trained daughter of Teofilo ran second at Bendigo on debut before placing again at Bendigo. She then ran third at Geelong and it was another solid effort.
Luck will be needed from barrier 13 but having John Allen in the saddle helps.
Race 3. (13:35) Tab Long May We Play Maiden (1300m)
#7 – Emerald Crown – Bet Now
Emerald Crown looked good during her first campaign and she could hit the ground running this time in.
The Nigel Blackiston-trained mare ran third at Sandown two back before going one better and finishing second at Ballarat.
It is another good ride for John Allen and punters could get each-way odds on race day.
Race 4. (14:10) Browns Sawdust & Shavings BM70 (1400m)
#6 – Lake’s Folly – Bet Now
Team Freedman lines up the four-year-old gelding that has been going close at his last three runs.
The son of Pierro scored a win at Sale four starts back before following that up with three consecutive placings.
He gets back in his races and relies on a quick tempo, but he could settle closer to the pace from the inside draw.
Race 5. (14:45) De Bortoli Wines BM70 (2060m)
#2 – Lunar Flare – Bet Now
The five-year-old mare is searching for her third consecutive win and she is every chance of winning again.
A daughter of Fiorente, Lunar Flare won by 1.3 lengths at Cranbourne last start and having another run at this track is ideal.
Damien Oliver takes the ride and the market will be a good indication of her chances.
Race 6. (15:20) O’Brien Real Estate BM64 (1000m)
#8 – Bluest Sky – Bet Now
Lindsay Park lines up the four-year-old mare that scored a quality win on debut. She won by 1.5 lengths over Won Ball, which is a talented type.
That run came in February and she has enjoyed a good break since. She will be fresh for this run but being patiently handled is a good sign.
Look for John Allen to sit off the speed and hope for a drag into the race.
Race 7. (15:55) Frankston Sand Soil BM64 (1200m)
#11 – La Lucciola – Bet Now
La Lucciola resumed from a spell with a quality second placing at Bendigo and that holds her in good stead for the new season.
The four-year-old by Snitzel scored her maiden win at Sandown in November last year and although she has been sparingly raced since, she has upside.
She should get a good run from barrier six and be fighting out the finish.
Race 8. (16:30) Mercedez-Benz Mornington BM64 (1600m)
#8 – Foxtrot Mo – Bet Now
The five-year-old has made a consistent start to his career and he could go back-to-back after winning at Sale.
He scored by 1.3 lengths over a good field and this stable usually keeps them in form once it is struck.
The inside draw is ideal and Dwayne Dunn is a senior rider.
