Cranbourne horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (12:10) Polytrack Maiden Plate (1200m)
#6 – Panda’s Post @ $4.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Maher/Eustace-trained two-year-old finished second on debut at Warrnambool and she’s capable of going one better.
She has since spelled after running in March and she looks well-placed in the conditions, so we’re expecting a big effort.
John Allen rides and he only needs luck from the wide draw.
Race 2. (12:50) Ivan’s Pies Maiden Plate (1400m)
#13 – Blue Army @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Blue Army is on debut after winning a trial and he has been well-supported in early betting markets.
The two-year-old son of Savabeel is bred to handle all conditions and the heavy track shouldn’t worry the Kiwi-bred.
Watch markets for late betting moves.
Race 3. (13:30) Browns Sawdust & Shavings Maiden (2025m)
#13 – Lunares @ $2.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Lunares comes off three consecutive second placings and she looks ready to breakthrough for her maiden win.
The Ellerton/Zahra-trained three-year-old finished second at Swan Hill last start and we expect the form out of that race to stack up nicely.
Barrier one is ideal and punters should be confident of a big effort.
Race 4. (14:10) Dirk Rock Civil BM64 (2025m)
#7 – Aragon @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Aragon comes off two solid performances this preparation and the four-year-old will be fitter for this run.
The son of Ocean Park owns one win and one placing from seven starts, so he has talent and the former Kiwi should handle this class.
After opening at $8.50, his odds have firmed considerably into $4.80. That is a significant move and it shouldn’t be ignored.
Race 5. (14:45) Frankston Mazda BM70 (1000m)
#7 – Ziavera @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Phillip Stokes-trained mare owns two wins and five placings from 10 starts, so she is capable of making a winning turn.
She is a daughter of Uncle Mo that that finished second at Moonee Valley last start, so she has faced tough fields throughout her career.
2kg comes off her back and punters get value odds on Wednesday.
Race 6. (15:20) O’Brien Real Estate BM70 (1300m)
#3 – November Dreaming @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
It wasn’t long ago that November Dreaming was facing tough fields in town. Her recent form hasn’t been flash, but her class will take her a long way.
The daughter of Tavistock is a three-time winner and capable of beating this field. She drops back from Saturday grade and racing at BM70 level is ideal.
Jamie Kah rides and she only needs luck from the wide draw.
Race 7. (15:55) Tab Long May We Play BM64 (1400m)
#6 – Obi @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Punters are getting a little frustrated with Obi, but the four-year-old gelding is consistent and shouldn’t be overlooked.
He has rattled off five consecutive placings and although unable to win, he has been right behind the winner and that form bodes well.
Punters get value odds and although he has yet to run at Cranbourne, it’s a tight-turning track that should help.
Race 8. (16:30) Hygain BM64 (1600m)
#1 – Seb Song @ $7 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Seb Song scored a fresh up win at Cranbourne and he could remain unbeaten at this track.
The three-year-old son of Sebring then faced a tough field at Caulfield before running fourth at Sandown behind Sarodec.
It’s good form for a midweek contest and getting a 2kg claim helps with the big weight. He is good enough to handle this field, so include at value odds.
