What Cranbourne Races
Where Cranbourne Turf Club – 50 Grant St, Cranbourne VIC 3977
When Friday, May 31, 2024
First Race 5:15pm AEST

Victorian racing returns to Cranbourne Turf Club on Friday evening, with a competitive eight-part program set to kick off at 5:15pm AEST. After racing with the rail out +9m last week, it returns to the true position. The radar looks promising, with only scattered showers across the region, so expect the surface to be rated a Soft 5.

Best Bet: Small Town Hero

Small Town Hero held ground impressively on debut behind an ultra-dominant Baraqiel at Sale on May 5. The son of Shamexpress was beaten by four lengths while attempting to make every post a winner, and the six-length margin back to third suggests punters should be willing to trust the form. Gate three should allow Jake Noonan to slide across to the rail, and with no Baraqiel giving chase, watch for Small Town Hero to fend them all off in the shadows of the post.

Next Best: Suances

Suances gave a good account of herself on debut at Mornington on May 13 and didn’t have much luck. The filly by The Autumn Sun was held up for a run when the race went on, but she knuckled down to the task to secure some minor money. Watch for Will Price to land in the one-one from barrier three, and provided she gets even luck, Suances can make amends second-up.

Next Best Again: Godzilla

Godzilla is finally starting to put it all together as he seeks his third win of the campaign. The trip to Victoria paid immediate dividends in his most recent start at Sale on May 19, with the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained galloper careering away to win by 3.3 lengths. The step up to 2025m appears ideal, and with this field exhibiting similar quality to what he defeated last start, expect another bold showing by Godzilla.
