Raceday focus: Best bets, analysis for Cranbourne

Herald Sun form analyst Brad Waters runs the rule over Friday night’s card at Cranbourne.


ANGEL ROCK (Race 6, No. 3 – $3.60)

Angel Rock was scratched from a race earlier in the week for this, which looks a good move. She has a terrific record over the 1600m trip and scored well at Cranbourne last time out.


AMEERABELLA (Race 1, No. 1 – $4.60)

Ameerabella did her best work late when not far away on debut at Mornington. She’ll only be better for that outing and should go close in the Cranbourne opener.

ONSLAUGHT (Race 5, No. 5 – $5)

Onslaught fought n well under 62kg when narrowly beaten at Cranbourne last Friday night. He’s up a level in grade but the 3kg weight relief will have him thereabouts again.

HEIR TO THE THRONE (Race 7, No. 3 – $4.20)

The brother of Melbourne Cup winner Prince Of Penzance might have turned the corner at his last two runs. He was a dominant winner over a longer trip last time out but dropping back to 2080m shouldn’t a problem this time.


RUBIROCK (Race 3, No. 7 – $13)

Rubirock has finished well when not far away in both runs this to start his career and the step to 1200m looks perfect for him now. He’s a great each-way chance at $13.

Joe Bowditch is riding in good form with five wins from his last 13 rides and he has chances to keep his form going at Cranbourne on Friday night.

JENHOST (Race 1, No. 4 – $126), AKAKA FALLS (Race 2, No. 2 – $2.80), RUBIROCK (Race 3, No. 7 – $13), GLADIOLO (Race 6, No. 5 – $34), IVY EFF (Race 8, No. 9 – $51)


Melbourne Saturday racing heads to Sandown while Horsham also races. Bendigo and Bairnsdale host provincial meetings on Sunday while Kyneton will be the scene of Monday’s meeting, which precedes the massive three-day carnival at Warrnambool.
