BACK: 5. Bella Cinque (WIN) for 1 unit(s) (Rated at: $2.4)

Bella Cinque was good first-up, has the race fitness edge on her rivals and her ratings are good enough to knock over a maiden.

LAY: 4. Zoupurring (WIN) for 2 unit(s) (Rated at: $6)

Risking Zoupurring, he’s winless from six starts this preparation, including starting $1.7 in an easier race here at Cranbourne earlier this prep. His ratings have been regressing and I’d rather be with three or four others.

CRANBOURNE RACING TIPS

Summary

Located approximately 50 kilometres south-east of Melbourne’s city centre, Cranbourne hosts 25 race meetings per year, predominantly on Friday nights and Sunday afternoons. Outside of the Cranbourne Cup, one of the club’s feature meetings is the tricode race night with harness, thoroughbred and greyhound races all on the same card. In total the fixture features 23 races, giving our cross-code team of tipsters the opportunity to come together and deliver their combined Cranbourne tips.    

Key Events

The Cranbourne Cup is now a standalone meeting towards the back-end of the Spring Racing Carnival. The distance of the $500,000 Listed contest was reduced from 2025m to a mile in 2021. As well as the Cranbourne Cup, won by hometown hero King Magnus in 2021, the meeting also features the Apache Cat Classic, named in honour of multiple Group 1 winner Apache Cat (trained by Cranbourne horseman Greg Eurell). For premium Cranbourne tips on each and every meeting, head to the Betfair Hub.   

Track Profile

Cranbourne Racecourse has a track circumference of 1,700m and a home straight of 300m. One unusual feature is that it has a very long chute – all starts from 1200m to 1600m are positioned within, and the 1000m start is located at the point where the chute meets the course proper. All horses have a long first straight in which to find their positions, before rounding the bend which brings them onto the home straight. 

History

Cranbourne has a long history, with racing commencing way back in 1867 when a two-day meeting was held in April. In 2012 Cranbourne introduced floodlights, becoming the second racetrack in Victoria (after Moonee Valley) to host night racing. Wagering turnover on night racing has grown exponentially in that time, with Betfair’s team of tipsters providing Cranbourne best bets for each and every night fixture.    

The club now also boasts the largest thoroughbred training facility in the southern hemisphere, with over 140 licenced trainers and more than 1,400 horses in training. In October 2014, a $4.9 million investment was made to construct on-course stables at Cranbourne, with the complex undergoing significant expansion following the closure of Caulfield’s stables.
