Cranbourne horse racing tips
Race 1. (18:00) Peter& Lavella Darose Maiden (1200m)
#1 – I’m A Shampion @ $3.60 – Bet Now
I’m A Shampion is on debut for Richard Laming and she has attracted plenty of attention in the betting market.
The four-year-old mare hasn’t had any barrier trials but the betting move is a positive sign.
Drawing barrier 14 makes it tough but she should be fighting out the finish.
Race 2. (18:30) Frankston Sand Soil Maiden (2025m)
#7 – Rebel Romance @ $2.90 – Bet Now
Team McEvoy trains the four-year-old mare which has placed in four of her six career starts.
The daughter of Rebel Raider finished second last time out at Murray Bridge and although the beaten $1.57 favourite, she could improve here.
Punters are getting better odds here and she could score an overdue break through win.
Race 3. (19:00) Procon Developments Maiden (1600m)
#9 – Au Pair @ $2.60 – Bet Now
The Busuttin/Young pairing is firing this season and Au Pair could get them another win.
She’s a three-year-old filly which has placed in two of her five starts and she was simply running out of grade at Flemington last start.
Overlook that performance for ninth because her form prior was better and with 55kg on her back, she looks perfectly placed here.
Race 4. (19:30) Cranbourne Corinthian (1200m)
#1 – Howling Wolf @ $4.20 – Bet Now
Howling Wolf is a 16-time winner which should be respect. The nine-year-old has loads of experience and that should pay dividends here.
The son of Econsul finished only 2.2 lengths behind the winner on this track last start and that form should hold up nicely.
Drawn wide in barrier 11 but he only needs a good ride to figure in the finish.
Race 5. (20:00) Browns Sawdust & Shavings Maiden (1400m)
#9 – Quantum Mechanic @ $2.25 – Bet Now
Three-year-old filly Quantum Mechanic looked good when running second behind Royalty last start.
She battled on nicely at Bendigo and with a similar run, she would be too good for this field.
Most of the money has come for her in this race and if she gets a good run in transit, she should be too good for them here.
Race 6. (20:30) Mercedez-Benz Mornington BM70 (1000m)
#7 – Lesage @ $3.10 – Bet Now
James Cummings lines up the three-year-old filly which was disappointing last start, but has a nice future in store.
She was a winner on debut at Cranbourne before running second behind St Edward’s Crown at Flemington.
That was a top effort against some quality types and drawing barrier four is ideal for this race.
Dwayne Dunn rides and the 55kg helps.
Race 7. (21:00) Pinker Pinker Plate (2025m)
#2 – Oceanex @ $1.75 – Bet Now
Most of the money is with Oceanex, which has good form behind some quality horses this season.
The four-year-old mare has finished in the money in eight of her nine starts and she has looked good this time in.
A placing behind Princess Jenni in the Group 2 Stocks Stakes is brilliant form for this and she could justify her short odds.
Race 8. (21:30) Melb Cup Country Series BM64 (1400m)
#13 – Aree Al @ $3.70 – Bet Now
Robbie Laing lines up the four-year-old gelding which battled away nicely for third at Ballarat last time out.
He was a winner on debut on this track and although he didn’t win second-up, that came on a rain-affected track.
Drawn nicely in barrier five and he could run well against this level of opposition.
Race 9. (22:00) TAB Multiplier BM64 (1200m)
#7 – Splendid @ $6 – Bet Now
Brent Stanley lines up the four-year-old mare which ran sixth on debut but improved quickly to win last start.
That win came at Bendigo by a half-length and she looks a good chance to rise through the grades.
Michael Walker is an aggressive rider and that’s going to help her chances in a fresh-up state.
$6 is a good price and she could end the night on a positive note.
