Cranbourne free tips & form
Race 1. (18:00) Tab Multiplier Maiden Plate (1200m)
#8 – No Shame – BET NOW
No Shame is having her second career start after running second on debut at Echuca.
The two-year-old daughter of Shamus Award ran as a $15 chance when running a nose behind Major Wager last month.
On the strength of that performance, No Shame should be much shorter in the market and she should go close again.
Race 2. (18:30) Peter & Lavella Darose Maiden (2520m)
#5 – South Bend – BET NOW
Lindsay Park lines up South Bend, which has placed in two of his four starts.
The three-year-old colt by Americain is bred to be handy over the staying distances and running over 2520m at his fourth start is indicative of that.
He ran second in a high weight race last start at Werribee and although four lengths behind the winner, he was hitting the line well enough to suggest a good run is coming here.
There isn’t much depth to this race.
Race 3. (19:00) Core Protective Group Maiden (1400m)
#3 – Champagne Friday – BET NOW
Champagne Friday looks set to break through for Darren Weir after going close at Warrnambool last start.
The three-year-old filly finished third on debut before running consecutive second placings and the latest came by a nose behind Truly High.
Form behind Truly High is going to stack up well in this grade and she’s going to get every chance from an ideal draw.
Expect bookmakers to open the filly as the short-priced favourite.
Race 4. (19:30) Mypunter.com BM70 (1000m)
#2 – You’ve Been Had – BET NOW
Five-year-old gelding You’ve Been Had is carving out a nice record from a limited career to date.
The son of Reward For Effort has scored three quality wins from four starts and he returned from a spell by winning a tough race on this track last start.
His only defeat came against a strong field at Moonee Valley at the end of his first campaign and he’s entitled to be well-supported in the market here.
Only the rise in weight is a concern.
Race 5. (20:00) Mercedes Mornington Mile BM64 (1500m)
#1 – My Little Oliver – BET NOW
My Little Oliver is looking to remain unbeaten at Cranbourne after winning his last two starts on the track.
The son of Wanted scored in early April by 1.3 lengths before running only fairly at Pakenham but he was back in winning form at Cranbourne last start.
The 2.3-length win was indicative of a gelding that loves this track and he’s no stranger to carrying sizable weights.
Race 6. (20:30) O’Brien Sky Heights BM70 (2025m)
#11 – Seattle Park – BET NOW
Seattle Park is nearing another win this campaign after going close his last couple of starts.
Trained by Michael Kent, the four-year-old went within a length at both Sale and Cranbourne last start and they were encouraging runs going forward.
He was a winner earlier this campaign at Yarra Valley and bookmakers should be giving out solid each way odds here.
Race 7. (21:00) Procon Developments C1 Handicap (1200m)
#8 – Cinq Dames – BET NOW
The early signs look good for Cinq Dames, which scored a narrow win at Mornington to end her first campaign.
Trained by Darren Weir, the daughter of Snitzel ran a close second at her first two starts and she capped that off with a dry-track win in January.
Conditions should suit nicely on Friday night and we’re expecting a solid run for the improving filly.
Race 8. (21:30) Debortoli Wines BM64 (1300m)
#8 – Holy Command – BET NOW
Mick Price lines up Holy Command, which scored a win at Geelong last start and the form out of that race has stacked up.
The three-year-old gelding won at odds of $12 last start and there were some nice types in behind him on that occasion.
He looks capable of being able to hold that form rising up in grade and he should be paying nice each-way odds again.
