Cranbourne preview Sep 20

Sep 20, 2017

I'm taking five runners to the races today at our home track at Cranbourne on a Soft 5 rated surface.

All five horses have been working well and it could be a good day to follow the stable. Good luck to all of our owners involved with runners today, let's hope that our great start to the season continues!

Here are my thoughts on the runners today.

R2 NO. 5 CAPDELAGO - This is a horse that I've always had a bit of time for and I think she will make a lovely horse with mid-week city grade potential between 1600m - 2000m. She hasn't had a jump out or trial coming into this race but her work has been really encouraging, I think she is capable of running a good race for each-way punters at big odds.

R5 NO. 3 STRONG HAND - This bloke was a dominant winner at Sale last start and I can tell you that he has not gone backwards. He has very good form at a mile and should get a great run from gate 6 today. His work has been excellent and he should go very close to winning - a great chance.

R6 NO. 11 TO INFINITY - At face value the old boy is racing out of his grade but his late sectionals have been telling me that he's going pretty well and might have been anchored by big weight in lesser grade. He'll appreciate some give in the ground and will run home strong, he might run a cheeky race today.

R7 NO. 5 RAIZA FLAME - I've had this race in mind for a while now, the same track and distance at which he won last start when he creamed similar grade rivals by 4-lengths. The horse continues to work really well and I'd be disappointed if he wasn't holding form on that last win - very hard to beat.

R8 NO. 14 ANSINNA - This horse gets a run after scratchings today and he's fresh back to 1000m. The give in the track will suit him and a middle gate lets Nikita put the horse wherever she wants in running. Although he's only won to maiden grade, he's capable of running well in this field at a big price.
