Cranbourne racing preview
An eight-race card is set to take place at Cranbourne on Friday night. The rail is still out at 7m, as it was when we last raced here on November 27, while the tracked is rated a Good 3. The first race on Friday night is set to face the starter at 5:30pm AEDT.
Phillip Stokes’ 4YO gelding has come back in career-best form this campaign and scored in impressive fashion at Pakenham in a driving finish. The in-form Michael Poy retains the ride, and connections will be hoping this gelding can break a run of outs on firmer tracks. He will be one of the backmarkers, but in a small field he shouldn’t be too far away from the leaders when entering the home straight. He goes up 2kg since that last win, but that shouldn’t be an issue.
We’re happy to forgive this 4YO mare’s last-start effort at Morphettville. She was trapped three wide with no cover and over-raced throughout the 1250m dash. Prior to that, she put away a small field with ease and gave nothing else a chance in a superbly rated front-running performance. She returns to Victoria for the first time since January this year and comes back a better horse than she was when she left. If she can get across to the rails from barrier seven, then she’ll be incredibly hard to chase down in the opening leg of the quaddie.
It’s hard to get too excited about a horse who hasn’t won in close to two years, but Empire Liberty has been there or thereabouts in his three runs so far this campaign. He has put together two runner-up performances at Bendigo and another at Kilmore, and now he gets gun apprentice Campbell Rawiller back in the saddle. He has won twice at the track and distance, and if he can get some luck in the running from barrier 12, he should be fighting out the finish.
