Cranbourne horse racing tips
Race 1. (18:30) Tab Long May We Play Maiden (1000m)
#6 – Orpheline – Bet Now
Orpheline makes her debut for Lindsay Park after some solid work at home. We should see a good betting move come for the two-year-old by Moshe, which gets the inside draw to her advantage.
Getting the inside draw is crucial at Cranbourne, as it’s a front runners track. Look for her to find a forward spot and kick strongly.
Race 2. (19:00) Multicultural Night Maiden (1000m)
#2 – Beatrix – Bet Now
It was a solid run for Beatrix on debut when finishing second at Sale. The three-year-old filly sat just behind the speed and held her ground throughout the race.
It was only a nose between first and second, so she’s more than capable of turning that form into a winning effort.
Punters should get each-way odds and if Jake Noonan can find some cover, that will help her chances.
Race 3. (19:30) Procon Developments Maiden Plate (2025m)
#5 – Yulong Wall – Bet Now
The well-bred son of Galileo hasn’t done much wrong in two race day starts. He finished third on debut at Wangaratta before running third again at Kyneton.
Both runs came over shorter distances and given his breeding, he’s going to enjoy the rise to 2025m. That could be enough to see him fighting out the finish once again.
Race 4. (20:00) Designer Coolrooms Maiden (1200m)
#5 – Fundraiser – Bet Now
Fundraiser is another top chance for Lindsay Park and he should find this easier than his debut run. The three-year-old gelding finished fourth behind Exceed Funds, and that’s city-class form.
He’s a son of Helmut that was given a soft trial to prepare for his return, having not raced since July of last year. Punters should get good odds for this run and they’re worth taking against an even field.
Race 5. (20:30) De Bortoli Wines BM70 (1400m)
#1 – Necessary – Bet Now
She will have to carry a sizable weight of 61.5kg, but she’s the best horse in this race. The five-year-old is a four-time winner from 14 starts, and she has been running against some slick opposition.
Two of her wins have come at Cranbourne and she is unbeaten at this track and distance. It’s tough to overlook those statistics and we’re confident she can run a top race again.
We’re expecting plenty of money to come her way on race night.
Race 6. (21:00) Mercedez-Benz Mornington BM64 (2025m)
#4 – Ready by Design – Bet Now
The Anthony Freedman stable is going well and it lines up Ready by Design. He’s a two-time winner that sprinted late to score at Benalla last start, which should be a fair form guide for this race.
The son of Master of Design enjoyed the rise in distance and he should enjoy the 2025m on offer at Cranbourne. It’s an even field and bookmakers will be offering each-way odds.
Race 7. (21:30) Mercedez-Benz Mornington BM70 (1300m)
#8 – Yulong Patrol – Bet Now
The four-year-old is a former imported runner that has mixed form in Australia, but is capable of beating a field like this. He was disappointing fresh up at Geelong, but he was off the scene for a long time, so we’re prepared to forgive the effort.
He was a two-time winner last campaign, including a half-length win at Morphettville. Conditions should suit him nicely on Friday night and he could get out to a decent price with bookmakers.
Race 8. (22:00) Settlers Run BM64 (1000m)
#4 – Oceanic Drift – Bet Now
Oceanic Drift has looked good this campaign, winning fresh up at Mornington and subsequently running back-to-back placings.
The Wendy Kelly-trained three-year-old finished second at Moonee Valley last start, running a length behind Vivaro. That’s good form for this level of racing and with a good ride, he should be fighting out the finish.
