Cranbourne night racing form and free tips, Friday March 10

Cranbourne Night

NIGHT racing continues to roll on throughout the autumn and Cranbourne plays host to an eight-race card this Friday night.

Having a punt on Friday night racing is a good entree to the weekend racing and there’s a great atmosphere to be enjoyed both on and off-course.

We have free tips and all the form in the hopes to find some good value winners, so sign up to and get boosted odds on selected races for that extra value.

Race 1 – Walk For Phil Maiden (2025m)

Marching On is a Michael Kent-trained gelding which has finished second in both starts to date. The son of Sepoy stepped up in distance last start and only battled behind the winner which won by four lengths, but it goes up in distance again and it should be well-backed.

Pat Carey is a master trainer of stayers and Baykool looks to fit the bill. The son of High Chaparral finished second at Werribee last time out and it’s only a matter of time before it breaks through for that elusive win. Punters might get some value with this runner.

Amour Of A Lady produced a much better showing last start when second and it could be a place chance with similar tactics. The seven-year-old raced on the speed and kicked strongly, so don’t discount its chances at odds.

Race 1 tip: Baykool to win at

Race 2 – Ferntree Gully Motor Group Maiden (1200m)

Embroidery is nearing a win and it’s in the right stable. The Darren Weir-trained filly is knocking on the door after two close-up performances and it will be better educated here after running wide last start. Consider on all bases.

Hold My Helmut improved significantly last start when fourth at Werribee. The Corstens-trained filly finished last on debut, but rebounded well and getting the inside draw will be a big help. Worth including and punters should keep an eye on the markets.

Kastor ran as a $61 chance on debut, but ran better than expected. It finished third behind Sweet Perfume and it was running on stylishly. It has the home track to its advantage so it could feature in the money again.

Race 2 tip: Embroidery to win at

Race 3 – Ferntree Gully Nissan Maiden (1400m)

Supergrass hasn’t done much wrong in two starts to date. The Kent-trained gelding has finished second in both and although it wasn’t close to the winner last start, it showed plenty of fight. Another run at this distance will suit so include in selections.

Meowie Wowie wasn’t disgraced when fourth on this track on debut and the experience would have helped. The five-year-old mare is lightly tried, but it could offer some value at long odds in a field that lacks excitement.

Shenandoah looked good when running second on debut at Te Rapa in New Zealand on debut, but it showed nothing last campaign. The Busuttin/Young-trained filly has ability and has the breeding on its side, which could bring it into contention.

Race 3 tip: Supergrass to win at

Race 4 – Wendy Kelly Racing Maiden (1400m)

Divine Command is having its fourth start this campaign and it has already placed twice. The Weir-trained filly went close at Ararat last start when settling in a forward position and it looks one of the better betting chances. It has drawn wide which isn’t ideal, but consider.

Jubilee Blue has improved with every run and looms as a serious winning threat. The John Sadler-trained three-year-old placed behind Creativity last start which is good form and the rise in distance looks ideal. It has drawn well and it should prove tough to beat.

See The Night has plenty of potential at this level and it should be considered as an each way chance. The Maher-trained filly ran third as the favourite last start and it won’t be that short here, but it could run into the money at each way odds.

Race 4 tip: Jubilee Blue to win at

Race 5 – Mypunter R70 Handicap (1000m)

A Private Party is a six-time winner which tried hard at Moonee Valley last start. The Logan McGill-trained gelding should find this easier here and all six wins have come at this distance. That’s a good sign for this and it could run into the money.

Northkape has plenty of talent, but doesn’t always run consistently. The locally-trained mare won back-to-back races to start this campaign, but has done little in two runs since. Three wins have come on this track which is a positive and it has a 2kg claimer in the saddle.

Emperor’s Chariot usually shows good form when fresh up and this distance won’t be an issue. The seven-year-old has placed five times on this track and could show up at big odds.

Race 5 tip: Northkape to win at

Race 6 – Browns Sawdust & Shavings R64 (2025m)

Cool has performed at high levels in the past, but it’s out of form and this level of racing will suit. The John Moloney-trained gelding has won on this track and it wasn’t far away from the winner last start at Yarra Valley. Watch the tote for any moves.

I Ain’t The One has won this campaign at Geelong and it should go well again. The Freedman-trained three-year-old didn’t have much luck last start at Sale and punters should forgive that effort. It’s by High Chaparral and it will enjoy the rise in distance.

Constant Return built towards a win at Werribee last start and it’s yet to finish worse than second in five three starts at this distance. The four-year-old should find itself in the thick of the action and it shouldn’t be left out.

Race 6 tip: I Ain’t The One to win at

Race 7 – O’Brien Real Estate C1 Handicap (1500m)

Jesta Dreama scored a narrow win at Ballarat last start and that form should be fine for this. The Wendy Kelly-trained gelding rises in distance again which is a positive and it shouldn’t be too far away from the prize.

Valtimor has the potential and should have won more than one race to date. The Ellerton/Zahra-trained gelding ran well for fourth last time out at Sandown and it won’t have to improve too much to figure in the finish. Consider based on tote support.

Gershom was a good winner on debut before producing a shocker second up at Sandown. The Robbie Griffiths-trained gelding gets the inside draw to its advantage here and the son of Moshe should find itself fighting out the finish.

Race 7 tip: Valtimor to win at

Race 8 – Tabcorp R64 Handicap (1300m)

Effortless Power is a winner this campaign and where it defeated a nice type. The Nikki Burke-trained mare has placed in two of three starts on this track and it runs its best races on dry surfaces. It should be tough to beat in the run to the line.

Kabuki is a past winner fresh up and it brings a fair amount of class into this. The John O’Shea-trained gelding was a winner three starts back at Pakenham and although its form since has been mixed, it battled on well last start and should be considered a winning hope.

Ocean Grove resides at the powerful Lindsay Park stable and it should feature prominently in the market. The Hayes/Dabernig-trained gelding is by Fastnet Rock and is bred to handle harder races than this. It needed the run last start and it should go close.

Race 8 tip: Effortless Power to place at
