Race 5, No. 1 BOLTOUTOFTHEBLUE
Is absolutely low flying since making the move over from Tasmanian at the beginning of this preparation. Was extremely brave being narrowly beaten by the talented Our Sea Goddess, who team Hayes/Dabernig think is stakes class. Draws out here, but expect Callow to roll forward on him and as long as he runs out the mile, which is a query, he'll be mighty hard to hold out.
Race 4, No. 1 BENALL
Although he ran last at the Valley last time out, I think he was going as well as ever previously and I'm willing to forgive. Has a heap of weight, but deserves it as he's competed in much stronger grade previously. Loves a wet track and loves Cranbourne, get the feeling this may have been a target race for him and at around $14 he's worth a small each way ticket.
Jockey Noel Callow has enjoyed his time at Cranbourne over the last 12 months. He's had 52 rides for 10 winners at a tick under 20% strike rate. He has a very strong book of rides tonight, including our best bet Boltoutoftheblue.
Race 1, No. 1 BRIGHT EYES
Hard to pin point a market mover with so many scratchings in most races. But in race 1 where there are no scratchings, the Shea Eden trained Bright Eyes has been well supported, after opening at $3.80, it's into $3.20 and challenging for favouritism.
Leg 1: 1,2,3
Leg 2: 1,4,6,8
Leg 3: 3,4,5,9,10,12
Leg 4: 1,9,12
$54 gets you 25%
Race 1: 1,2,3,4 (With the handicapper here, happy to side with Bright Eyes on his home track, expect the top two to fight it out though)
Race 2: 4,2,1,8 (Looks ready to win now, 1400m looks perfect)
Race 3: 7,8,9,1 (Just missed last time out, slightly back in trip, which is a slight query, but should be winning)
Race 4: 1,6,3,7 (BOLTER)
Race 5: 1,3,2,5 (BEST BET)
Race 6: 1,8,6,4 (Easiest race Hay Bale has seen in a long time, throw in World Of Hope to your quaddie, especially if it gets to a heavy)
Race 7: 5,4,12,9 (A couple of these are badly out of form, but have great wet track form, so makes it a tricky affair to assess, go wide in the quaddie if you can)
Race 8: 1,9,12,15 (Won with the big weight last time in really dominant fashion, Vitani has had enough chances, but concede its not out of it)
