Cranbourne free tips & form
Race 1. (18:30) Kids Night Out BM70 (2025m)
#5 – Considering @ $2.35 – BET NOW
Shea Eden lines up last start winner Considering, which is the only runner in the field with recent winning form.
The four-year-old scored easily by three lengths at Moe last start and rising up in distance is going to suit her perfectly.
She was good enough to run second around Moonee Valley earlier this month and that form is going to stack up well at this level.
It’s only a field of four, which can make for an interesting race tactically, but Considering should be considered as the top winning chance.
Race 2. (19:00) Peter & Lavella DaRose Maiden (1400m)
#5 – Pamela Joy @ $2.15 – BET NOW
Three-year-old filly Pamela Joy looks set to win after showing plenty of potential throughout its brief career.
The daughter of Helmut has placed in all five career starts and that included a quality second placing at Moonee Valley last start. Although 2.5 lengths behind the winner, Pamela Joy was left chasing from the outset and to finish second was a credible performance.
She won’t get a better chance off the inside draw and she looks like a great bet in the second race of the night.
Race 3. (19:30) Zaparas Lawyers Maiden (1400m)
#2 – Kalleske @ $2.40 – BET NOW
The son of O’Reilly is a former New Zealand runner which finished second on debut at Te Awamutu before travelling to Australia and running second at Moonee Valley.
The Valley form should stack up nicely at Cranbourne on Friday and this four-year-old looks to possess plenty of natural ability.
He has been well supported in the early markets ($2.40 – $2.30) and that’s a positive sign moving forward.
Race 4. (20:00) Procon Developments Maiden (1600m)
#9 – De’ Majico @ $2.25 – BET NOW
Punters have well and truly come for the Danny O’Brien-trained runner and the stable is known for their big plunges.
The four-year-old finished an average sixth on debut, but that form quickly improved with a third placing at Yarra Valley before she ran second at Colac.
This is another step in the right direction and she’s bred to appreciate the mile. That’s going to suit again here and the betting move from $2.75 to $2.25 is significant enough to suggest she can take this out.
Race 5. (20:30) My Punter Maiden (1600m)
10 – Flying Flywheel @ $2.80 – BET NOW
Flying Flywheel is another runner which has been very well backed at Cranbourne.
Trained by Lindsay Park, the three-year-old filly by Toorak Toff finished third on debut at Benalla before running 4.5 lengths behind Folk Song on this track in November.
The money was put on last time out at Tatura where she finished second, but expect a better effort on this occasion and the inside draw will allow her to find her rhythm and be tough to hold out.
Race 7. (21:30) Highview Accounting R64 (1200m)
#7 – Ceylon @ $4.60 – BET NOW
Ceylon is a capable type for Trent Busuttin and Natalie Young, which is making its season debut here.
The four-year-old mare has a record of nine starts for two wins and four placings, which should be respected and her only recent failure came at Caulfield in a tough race.
This is much easier and despite having to carry 59kg on her back, she has the class to win and Dwayne Dunn is a good jockey to have in the saddle.
Race 8. (22:00) Multiplier Handicap (1300m)
#5 – Tesarc @ $3 – BET NOW
Henry Dwyer lines up the current $3 favourite which scored an emphatic victory to break maiden grades last start.
The three-year-old by Testa Rossa didn’t show much in his first three starts with a fourth placing being his best result, but he stepped up in distance to 1300m and scored by seven lengths.
It was the type of victory which suggests that he will continue to run well at this level and we’re expecting another good effort.
