This has to be a world first.
The best bet of the night comes up in the Picnic Grand Final race!
With a bit of a downpour predicted for this Cranbourne meeting, it would be advised to keep a keen eye on the weather as we expect there to be a downgrade as the meeting ventures on.
Cranbourne race 1
Staying away from the raced horses and going with a first starter in the form of Movader.
She is a two-year-old filly by Group 1 ATC Sires winner Invader and has shown a decent level of talent at the jump outs.
Took a liking to her most recent jump out on 21 April at Stawell over 800 metres.
She travelled strongly on the bridle and was asked for minimal effort in the run to the finish post.
Judging by what she has shown to date, she should settle handy to the speed, which is a big bonus at the tight-turning Cranbourne track.
Happy to be with her each-way at the price.
Suggested Bet: Movader each-way at $6 the win and $2.25 the place.
Suggested Exotic: Quinella 5 & 9
cranbourne race 2
Riverplate has competed in some hotly contested races in his career to date.
The three-year-old colt by Flying Artie ran the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas and was then sent over for a stint in New Zealand.
He has failed to break his maiden status as a race horse, but this is clearly the easiest race he has contested in his short career.
His two jump outs in preparation for this run have been very nice for a horse of ilk who is likely to benefit from getting out over the mile.
Should be able to position himself into a winning spot from the inside gate.
Suggested Bet: Riverplate win at $2.50
Suggested Exotic: Boxed Trifecta – 3, 5, 6, 9
cranbourne race 5
This would have to be the first time in tips.betdeluxe.com.au history that we have punched our way into the form of a picnic race.
Nevertheless, there is a great opportunity for a bet in the form of Peppino.
He is the only horse in this race to have performed well in BM-58 & BM-64 grade in his last handful of runs and is the clear class horse of the race.
His run at Cranbourne two starts back in BM-64 grade was behind Baglioni and that form would probably win this race by five lengths.
Only realy query is the barrier, but if the jockey can negate that and settle him no worse than midfield with cover, it is hard to see him being beat.
Suggested Bet: Peppino win at $3.2
cranbourne race 8
#10 head first
Head First has been the victim of circumstance at her first few this runs this campaign and then copped a shocker of a ride at Caulfield over 1100 metres last start.
She resumed when lacking race fitness at Sandown, then took a big step to 1200 metres prior to her luckless Caulfield effort.
The three-year-old filly will now be perfectly conditioned to run out a strong 1200-metre event and we can only hope Patrick Moloney does not think too much from the barrier and presses forward.
She has the talent and speed to lead this field up, which will be a big advantage on the on-pace favoured track.
Expecting her to win this race and then progress to town the start after.
Suggested Bet: Head First win at $2.5
Suggested Exotic: Exacta 10 & 12
