Cranbourne Best Best: Dubai Moon
Our best comes up in the opening event, when the Frankie Stockdale-trained Dubai Moon steps out in a bid to break his maiden at start 12. He was last seen finishing second behind the smart filly Vilanculous at Bendigo on August 20, but Dubai Moon saw plenty of late backing to go around as a close market rival to the eventual winner. The maiden he steps out in here is a touch easier than that one at Bendigo, and the step up to 2600m from 2400m should suit him perfectly, as he does not necessarily possess a sharp turn of foot but will stay all day. He will gain an economical run in transit from barrier one and with even luck in the home straight should be too good with fresh legs on the scene.
Next Best at Cranbourne: Stonefield
The Leon & Troy Corstens-trained Stonefield returns to a track and distance he broke his maiden at three starts back on June 23. His next outing at Ballarat was a complete forgive when he found plenty of trouble in the running, but his last start at Bendigo on August 20 when beaten under a length suggested he is one of the better bets on the Cranbourne card. Notably, Damien Oliver hops on board for the first time, and in a race that looks to lack depth, we expect Stonefield to sit midfield and then put them away with a nice turn of foot.
Next Best Again at Cranbourne: Parisian Dancer
We were with the Archie Alexander-trained Parisian Dancer when she won in impressive fashion at Warrnambool on August 19. Having chased home Mr Brightside two starts back at Sandown on August 1, the four-year-old mare managed to weave her way through the pack thanks to a perfect steer from Declan Bates. Having won two of her last three races, she is clearly in top form and from barrier seven should be there or thereabouts in the running. With a similar turn of foot as she displayed last time out, Parisian Dancer should send us home winners at a nice price.
