Cranbourne horse racing tips
Race 1. (17:30) Tab Long May We Play Maiden (1000m)
#10 – Peggy Selene – Bet Now
Peggy Selene looked good when running second at her first two starts and she could go one better here.
The Maher/Eustace-trained two-year-old ran both placings at Gold Coast but that form should stack up nicely for this race.
She only needs luck from the wide draw to figure in the finish.
Race 2. (18:00) Peter Darose AFC Maiden (1600m)
#6 – Art Heiress – Bet Now
There was little wrong with the win of Art Heiress on debut at Bendigo. The three-year-old handled the heavy track well when running second behind Laybuy.
The daughter of Artie Schiller should only get better with time and having the in-form jockey Billy Egan in the saddle helps.
Watch for each-way odds from bookmakers.
Race 3. (18:30) Browns Sawdust & Shavings Maiden (1400m)
#6 – Charm Wing – Bet Now
Lindsay Park lines up the four-year-old mare that looks set for a winning turn. She owns two placings from two starts and she went close last time out.
The daughter of Canford Cliffs ran second at Cranbourne after settling just behind the pace. It showed that she has good tactical speed and from barrier four, she should get every chance.
Race 4. (19:00) Procon Developments C1 Handicap (1300m)
#7 – La Croft – Bet Now
Three-year-old filly La Croft broke maiden grades two back and it came by 4.5 lengths. It was a solid display and she backed it up with a tidy effort last start.
She finished fifth in benchmark 64 grade and the form out of that race should hold up steady. It bodes well for another good run.
Punters should get each-way odds.
Race 5. (19:30) Mega Trim BM64 (1200m)
#2 – Beerz with Clint – Bet Now
Beerz with Clint has struggled of late but he’s better than what he is showing. The Clinton McDonald-trained gelding has finished in the money in seven of his 15 starts, which is a nice record.
He might have needed the run on this track last start and he’s going to strip fitter for this race.
Watch for any market moves, but he should be paying a value price.
Race 6. (20:00) Mercedes-Benz Mornington BM70 (1600m)
#9 – Crimson Ace – Bet Now
The Busuttin/Young stables lines up Crimson Ace, which has been around the mark her entire career.
She is coming off a third placing at Cranbourne and prior to that she finished fourth at Moonee Valley. That’s going to be a good form guide for this race and she should show up.
Drawing barrier four should see her fighting out the finish.
Race 7. (20:30) Sky Heights Stayers BM70 (2580m)
#10 – Skyway Star – Bet Now
Skyway Star is going through her gears this season but a winning turn shouldn’t be too far away.
The four-year-old mare ran fourth at Cranbourne last start and she has contested some good fields in her time.
Having Craig Williams riding is a big bonus so stick with her.
Race 8. (21:00) Barton Fixing BM70 (2060m)
#3– Stellar Impact – Bet Now
Stellar Impact showed her quality when winning consecutive races last campaign. Those wins came at Newcastle and Hawkesbury, but she has since run second at Canterbury.
The decision to race at Cranbourne is interesting but it’s another good ride for Craig Williams. He could make the difference and the mare often makes her own luck in front.
