International Racing: Cranbourne – Friday 17 April 2020

International Racing: Happy Valley – Wednesday 15 April 2020

A small, but competitive eight-race programme is scheduled for Cranbourne on Friday. The best bet comes in Race 1 in the form of KANSINO who returns from the City after finishing fourth at Sandown. She finished runner-up on debut and if repeating that effort, should take a power of beating.

Race 1 

KANSINO produced a promising debut effort when finishing second over seven furlongs at Pakenham. She followed that up with a fourth placed finish at Sandown last time. She takes a step up to the mile for the first time with Jye McNeil in the saddle and if seeing out the extra distance on offer, she should be hard to beat. ISOLA COMACINA has finished second in her last two starts. She was unlucky not to have won her last start as her saddle shifted in running. The daughter of Bullbars tries the mile for the first time and with a bit of luck in running, she should be the one to throw out the biggest challenge to the top choice. 

Race 2

This is a weak Maiden field and caution is advised. The narrow first selection is BONNE GEISHA from the John Sadler stable. She was in need of her last start over 1300m on this course when returning from a 19-week break. The manner in which she finished off the race that day suggests that she will enjoy the step up to the mile. The daughter of Darci Brahma should strip much fitter this evening and may find herself in the winner’s enclosure. WHIRLWIND ROMANCE didn’t enjoy the heavy going in her last start. The run that catches the eye is when she finished second over this distance at Balaklava on 01 March. If repeating that effort tonight, she should be the right there in the run down to the finishing post. 

Race 3

SMOKE BOMB produced four decent efforts before being given a 22-week break. He has the best form coming into this race. The son of Starcraft is likely to race on the speed in this contest and if fit and well, he should take a power of beating. SOLEIL DE LUNE is an unraced son of Puissance De Lune with Michael Dee in the saddle. He has not had any barrier trials leading into this contest, but he doesn’t have to be one of the stable superstars to win a contest like this on debut. The betting market will be the best guide with regards to his chances.

Race 4

MRS WHITTEN was in need of her last start after she was given a 46-week break. She produced a cracking debut effort over the minimum distance on this course. The daughter of Toronado should strip a much fitter horse for tonight’s race and may be the one they all have to beat. JOCAT produced a promising debut effort when finishing third over the five furlongs on this course. She understandably raced green that day, but finished off her race strongly and will enjoy the extra furlong on offer tonight. With the natural improvement that is expected this evening, she should be the one to throw out the biggest challenge to the top choice.

Race 5

ISCARIOT has very good consistent form to his name and has finished second in his last three starts. He is having a very good season thus far with a win and three second place finishes. The son of Zebedee is having his first run for his new trainer and if suited to his new surroundings, he may be the one they all have to beat. MAGNETISM was disappointing in his last start and was quickly given a 19-week break. He has won twice from five attempts over tonight’s distance. He makes his course debut this afternoon and if suited to the track, he may be the one to pose the biggest threat to the top choice.ce.

Race 6
SURETOSHINE produced a very good comeback run over 1500m on this course last time. She is unbeaten in her only attempt over this course and distance. She should strip a much fitter horse this evening and with Jamie Kah doing duty, she may be the one to side with. GINA LOLA has not finished too far off the winner in recent outings. She makes her course and distance debut tonight, but it is encouraging that jockey Michael Dee has opted to take the ride. The daughter of Not A Single Doubt should be right there in the run down to the finishing post from her mid-field draw.

Race 7 

KUSARI won his last start over 1500m on this course. He raced from a handy position, fought hard and only took over the lead late in the race. The manner in which he finished off his last start suggests that he will enjoy the extra distance on offer tonight. Jye McNeil does duty from a positive barrier position and the pair may find themselves in the winner’s enclosure. SAM SLICK showed good signs of returning to best form in his last start over this course and distance. He is likely to race on the speed this evening and if repeating his latest effort, he may be the one to throw out the biggest challenge to the top choice.

Race 8
YOUNG LIAM was an impressive winner of his maiden race over this course and distance last time. He does take on stronger company tonight, but he is still lightly raced and looks to have plenty of scope. Jordan Childs retains the ride and the pair could notch up a quick double. DU WELL is a filly taking on the boys. Her recent form has been decent. She has a good record over this distance with three wins and two second place finishes from eleven outings. She gets the services of a 2kg claiming apprentice tonight and if continuing her good run of form, she should be right there in the run down to the finishing post.
