Cranbourne Tips for March 5
Dirt Rock Civil Maiden Plate Tips (Race 4)
Cranbourne Best Bet - Race 4 No. 4 Mcilroy
Another Douglas galloper that has already been heavily supported in the early markets due to a few nice jumpouts.
This gelding has shown early speed in that work, leading up two back and finding under pressure, before taking a sit in his latest behind a very smart horse in Curran and finishing alongside that galloper.
In that latest heat as well was Perfect World, a runner who would starts $1.10 in this race based on the quality of the event.
The main danger seems to find trouble and continually one or two better, so I am going to stick with the jumpout form and the Douglas/Kah combination.
Mercedes-Benz Mornington BM64 Handicap Tips (Race 6)
Cranbourne Next Best Bet - Race 6 No. 4 Pinch Of Luck
I do feel Excelman is a false favourite in this first-up while this horse is set to peak third-up off the back of two city runs.
She was in the market first-up when beaten by Safe Passage who looks a very progressive horse of Danny O'Brien's, while she was outclassed last start in the Vanity with Zou Dancer going on to win by six lengths.
I like the step up in trip again, up to 1500m and that the horse has shown a little bit of tactical speed in the past so she can utilise the perfect gate (five).
Her last third-up run was behind Milton Park who is a 1400m flyer and multiple city winner, so we do know the class is there with this horse as is a fitness advantage over the main rival.
OBrien Real Estate BM64 Handicap Tips (Race 8)
Cranbourne Value Bet - Race 8 No. 9 Zakurak
This horse has been in the money 10 times from 15 starts, so consistency is no issue for the son of Iffraaj.
A natural go forward horse, he was third last start behind the smart Annavisto when leading, and from barrier one tonight, he should be taking up a similar on-pace role.
We know when the rail is out at Cranbourne, it is always an advantage to be on those near the pace which is exactly where this horse will be.
Having not raced on the track for over two months, I'm expecting all areas of the surface to hold up nicely which means being on the inside should be of no disadvantage.
