Cranbourne Tips May 26


Procon Developments Maiden Plate Tips (Race 4)


Cranbourne Best Bet - Race 4 No. 5 Keevs

The four-year-old has shown improvement with racing since making his debut when fourth over 2000m on at Ballarat a month ago.

Keeves performed well over 2520m when three-and-a-half-lengths second in a maiden plate here subsequently.

The winner of that event, Stormy Grey, went on to deliver a fair seventh at Group 3 level at Morphettville last weekend and that form reads well here.

He met trouble in running when finishing strongly to just be denied when runner-up over 2000m at Bendigo a week ago and is expected to appreciate the extra distance here.


Travis Harrison Apprentice Cup Tips (Race 5)


Cranbourne Next Best Bet - Race 5 No. 3 Plus Fours

Various tactics have been employed aboard the gelding in his five starts this prep, but he has been at his best when racing close to or on the speed.

The three outings under such tactics have led to two victories and a second-place finish including when successful in a Class 1 over this trip at Pakenham April 20.

The form of that race is working out particularly well with the runner-up, third, fifth and tenth all delivering victories subsequently.

Plus Fours was bumped at the start when never a factor upped to metro level racing when 12th of 15 at Flemington subsequently and he can be forgiven that effort.

Ladbrokes Racing Club Sky Heights Stayers Series Final Tips (Race 6)


Cranbourne Feature Bet - Race 6 No. 6 Heir To The Throne

The veteran has been kept busy this campaign, with his most recent outing on the flat his seventh of the year and that run saw him deliver a half-length second in a 3000m event at Sandown.

Partnered by his jockey here Celine Gaudray, he finished well just missing out to Sing For Peace with Hint Of Stars, who re-opposes here back in third. 

Two fair efforts over hurdles followed, but Andrea Leek’s gelding looks more at home in flat races and has performed well here in the past, winning or placing on five of his six starts at this track.

The drop back to a Benchmark 70 event is a positive here and Heir To The Throne looks capable of taking his career wins tally into double figures.


John Duff & Co 0-64 Handicap Tips (Race 8)


Cranbourne Value Bet - Race 8 No. 12 Toronali

The five-year-old caught the eye when delivering a victory in a maiden plate over this course and distance back in August of last year.

That triumph came on a Heavy 8 and while she failed to score in six subsequent starts last prep, it’s notable that Toronali was racing over further including when fading in a 2460m event at Geelong.

Spelled following that Geelong effort, the mare performed well when racing from off the pace including when runner-up at the same venue in her secons start last winter.

The drop back to 1400m takes the eye first-up and having acquitted herself well at Benchmark 64 level in the past, she looks value here fresh.
