Night racing at Cranbourne is back this Friday night and there’s a quality eight-race card for punters.
We have free tips and form for every race at Cranbourne and although the summer season is over, we’re loving that night racing is continuing into May.
Cranbourne free tips & form
Race 1. (18:00) Tab Multiplier Maiden (1200m)
#6 – Layercake @ $10 – BET NOW
Layercake hasn’t had any trials for punters to go on but we like the breeding and the market will indicate its chances.
Mick Price lines up the two-year-old filly which is bred by Declaration of War and it’s tough to overlook juveniles from the Price stables.
She should be able to use the inside draw to her advantage and we’re expecting a nice debut effort.
Race 2. (18:30) NP Distribution Maiden (1200m)
#6 – Six Sigma @ $2.25 – BET NOW
Six Sigma is having his second career start for Michael Kent and it was a pleasing debut effort.
The son of Pierro was well-supported at each way odds at Cranbourne and he managed to run within a long neck of the winner.
Having experience around Cranbourne is going to help his chances here and in-form jockey Noel Callow takes the ride.
Top chance and bookmakers should offer good odds.
Race 3. (19:00) Marcos IGA Plus Liqour Maiden (1000m)
#1 – Bella @ $5 – BET NOW
There might be some talented debutantes here but Bella has form on the board and that should count for something here.
The George Osborne-trained filly finished third on debut at Werribee last year before running second on the same track last start.
She finished only a nose from the winner and she gets in nicely from barrier two here.
Each way chance.
Race 4. (19:30) Williamsons Foodworks Maiden (1400m)
#7 – Tapanui @ $9 – BET NOW
It’s tough to overlook the Busuttin/Young stables at the moment and they line up three-year-old gelding Tapanui here.
The son of Savabeel has had two trials on this track for one placing and that was an encouraging sign when finishing well for third last time out.
Stretching out to the 1400m on debut looks ideal and he could offer some good each way value for punters here.
Race 5. (20:00) Munro’s IGA BM78 (2080m)
#10 – The Black Leopard @ $2.20 – BET NOW
That was an impressive effort for third last time out at Morphettville behind former New Zealand runner Our Peaky Blinders.
The Henry Dwyer-trained runner has won two from his four starts and his most recent win came by 3.5 lengths at Bairnsdale.
He’s going to get every chance from barrier two and stepping up to 2080m is only going to help his chances in an even field.
Race 6. (20:30) Cowes IGA BM64 (1300m)
#6 – Chevaux @ $7.50 – BET NOW
Darren Weir lines up Chevaux which was a winner on debut at Ballarat by a nose.
The son of Smart Missile then went to Bendigo where he finished third behind Langhro and although he was 4.8 lengths behind the winner, that was an encouraging performance.
Weir always has his horses ready to fire and it’s good to see the gelding have his third run in his maiden campaign.
A win won’t be far away.
Race 7. (21:00) Winestyle At Botanical BM70 (1200m)
#2 – Jamaican Rain @ $2.40 – BET NOW
Jamaican Rain is fresh up here after scoring two wins last campaign.
The Richard Laming-trained mare scored back-to-back wins at Sale and Morphettville before running fourth behind Merriest at Caulfield and fifth behind Pedrena during the Melbourne Cup Carnival.
That’s extremely good form for a Friday night at Cranbourne and she gets the inside draw to her advantage here.
Interesting runner which should generate interest in the betting.
Race 8. (21:30) My Liquor Online BM70 (1500m)
#8 – Linguist @ $2.80 – BET NOW
Linguist showed some great form last year before disappointing a touch since, but this is easier and she should be competitive.
The four-year-old by Helmut is a three-time winner from 12 starts and she was good enough to win on the final day of Melbourne Cup Week.
She wasn’t too far behind Runson at Caulfield last time out and holding that form will see her fighting out the finish.
