Cranbourne Tips March 22

Ladbrokes Blackbook Maiden Plate Tips (Race 1)

Cranbourne Best Bet - Race 1 No. 3 Son Of Zorro

The gelding debuted with a narrow defeat when contesting a five-runner 1000m maiden on a Soft 5 track at this venue in January.

Since then, he has gone on to acquit himself well in metro races, being beaten less than two lengths in each of his three starts including twice at Moonee Valley.

The second of those Moonee Valley efforts saw him jump at $10 when fifth of seven in a 1200m maiden February 16.

The four-year-old arrives here on the back of a fourth-place finish in a maiden over the same distance at Caulfield Heath last week.

Trained by Brendan McCarthy, Son Of Zorro has a good barrier in five and with Ethan Brown up, he looks capable of breaking his maiden on his return to Cranbourne.

Hygain Handicap Tips (Race 3)

Cranbourne Roughie - Race 3 No. 5 Misspoke

The daughter of Swear demonstrated good form when making a promising return in finishing third in a 1500m Benchmark 64 handicap at Mornington in January.

Misspoke built on that effort when delivering a one-and-a-half-length success in a Benchmark 58 handicap at Pakenham subsequently.

The four-year-old raced over 1600m on a Good 4 track at Pakenham, with the form of that contest working out well with the third, eighth and tenth all winning subsequently.

She proved a disappointment when racing over the same course and distance subsequently, but a post-race scope revealed an excuse.

The drop back to 1400m shouldn’t pose any issues for Cliff Brown’s mare and she may prove up to putting that latest effort behind her.

Rosemont Stud BM64 Handicap Tips (Race 5) 

Cranbourne Next Best Bet - Race 5 No. 6 Cattrall 

A $300,000 purchase at Inglis’ 2022 Australian Easter Yearling Sale, Cattrall showed ability at this venue in each of her first two starts.

The second of those efforts saw her place second in a 1200m maiden here in May last year prior to failing to shine at Sandown-Hillside via her only subsequent start in 2023. 

The filly made the perfect start to 2024 when jumping from barrier one prior to delivering a victory in a 1106m maiden at Sale last month.

The three-year-old then made her first start out of maiden company when contesting a 1200m Benchmark 64 handicap at Moonee Valley earlier this month.

Anthony & Sam Freedman’s representative came home fourth when beaten over four-and-a-half-lengths at Moonee Valley and she should appreciate the drop from metro racing.

Settlers Run Handicap Tips (Race 7)

Cranbourne Value Bet - Race 7 No. 4 Jumping Power Two

Mick Bell’s gelding was scratched from a 1203m Benchmark 58 handicap at Kyneton on Tuesday to head here and that decision looks a shrewd one.

The four-year-old has demonstrated good form without winning in three starts since joining Bell from the Lucinda Boyd yard earlier this year.

The second of those three outings saw him lost out by just over a length when third in an 888m trophy contest at Woolamai last month.

Jumping Power Two went on to finish one place better when one-and-a-half-lengths second in a Benchmark 0-58 handicap at Stony Creek just under two weeks ago.

Barrier six should pose no issues for jockey Ross O’Sullivan, with the pair looking value to register a victory together on Friday night.
