Cranbourne free tips & form
Race 1. (13:00) TM Design Group Maiden (1200m)
#7 – Wild Choice – Bet Now
Richard Laming lines up the three-year-old gelding which ran fairly for third on debut and should strengthen up nicely from that run.
The son of Shamexpress ran 1.5 lengths behind the winner and was well-backed in the run, which is typically a good sign from the Laming stable.
Expect the money to be on again after getting the inside draw and seeing Damien Oliver in the saddle.
Race 2. (13:35) Highview Accounting Maiden (1500m)
#15 – Trolleyed – Bet Now
Trolleyed was impressive on debut when making up big ground for second and that looks one of the better form guides for this race.
The Busuttin/Young-trained three-year-old is bred to handle the longer distances and although drawn awkwardly in barrier 10, he should be able to find a nice spot.
Looks a good each-way chance for punters.
Race 3. (14:10) De Bortoli Wines Maiden (1300m)
#4 – So He Rules – Bet Now
So He Rules has had two runs and was most impressive when running fourth at Bendigo last time out.
The Peter Gelagotis-trained four-year-old raced on the speed and battled away nicely, which was a much better effort following his seventh placing on debut.
His breeding suggests that he’s only going to get better with more time and distance, so consider here at an each-way price.
Race 4. (14:45) Procon Developments BM70 (1300m)
#2 – Make It Count – Bet Now
Looking for four wins on the bounce is Make It Count. The four-year-old son of Snitzel has taken advantage of the wet tracks of late and he should get another here.
His first win came at Warrnambool before winning at Moe and Geelong. The winning margins haven’t been great but he knows how to get it done and that’s a big positive.
Gets some weight off his back with Lewis German in the saddle and he should be tough to beat again.
Race 5. (15:20) Cranbourne Hyundai BM64 (1000m)
#5 – Yulong Star – Bet Now
Yulong Star was good enough to win two races last campaign and could kick off this campaign with another.
The Nathan Dunn-trained mare has been primed with a trial placing at Cranbourne and that follows some good form in South Australia in the summer.
She hasn’t raced since February 16, which is a negative, but she has the class edge on this field and could sprint well off the inside draw.
Race 6. (15:55) Mercedes Mornington BM64 (1500m)
#10 – The Regiment – Bet Now
The Regiment has been knocking on the door for awhile now after four consecutive second placings.
He’s a five-year-old which has won only one of his 30 starts, but with 15 placings on his record, he’s a consistent type which is worth backing.
He does get back in the run which isn’t ideal off an inside barrier, but a change in tactics wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world.
Race 7. (16:30) TAB Multiplier BM64 (1200m)
#3 – Strong Influence – Bet Now
Strong Influence was a good winner fresh up when scoring at Moe and he could score another win here.
The Gelagotis-trained runner scored impressively by 4.5 lengths and although beaten in two runs since, those have come against good fields.
Looks well-placed here from the good draw and we’re expecting a top effort.
Race 8. (17:05) Browns Sawdust BM70 (2060m)
#7 – Kajaani – Bet Now
Kajaani has looked impressive at her last four runs, which have included two wins and two second placings.
The four-year-old daughter of Reliable Man scored by a nose last start when digging deep and she should strengthen up nicely from that run.
She’s another nice type from the Busuttin/Young stable and bookmakers should have her at each-way odds in the last race.
