Craig Rail's Preview for Cranbourne

Thu, 22 Feb 2018

Trainer Phillip Walters has a good chance of a winning double with the in-form pacer The Loustar and also Willbe Doc. The Loustar was wide throughout and recorded a brisk mile rate of 1.56.5 when he scored at Warragul then followed with a big second at Albury where he broke stride in the early stages and was approximately 60m behind the leaders mid-race. Willbe Doc led and faded into fifth at Albury but he did set up a genuine tempo throughout. He was very strong in the latter stages when a close second at Warragul prior and he has conditions to suit him here.

Track information

Circumference: 946m, Sprint Lane: Yes, Leader's win: , Leading Trainer: Gary Quinlan, Leading Driver: Chris Alford

The Moral

Race 3 - No.4 Regal Cheval

He will appreciate a big drop back in class on his recent efforts and is a good chance of leading throughout.


Take On

Race 4 - No.6 Mygoldengrinner

He has been racing in great form but he led when second at Warragul and is widely drawn for this assignment.

Best Bet(s) - $25 win
R3 No.4 - Regal Cheval$1.15*
He is clearly the class runner of this field and is likely to be in a dominant position throughout.
R4 No.4 - The Loustar$2.3*
He ran a huge race after making an early error at Albury and should continue his good form under these conditions.
Best Value - $10 win, $15 place
R5 No.6 - Fireashot$3.5*
She raced out three wide in a fast final lap at Warragul last outing and hasn't enjoyed much luck in her three runs since resuming.
Best Roughie(s) - $3 win, $9 place
R5 No.5 - Monterey Jack$12*
He had support at longer odds when a reasonable fourth at Warragul so he is not without a chance.
R7 No.4 - Riegle Deception$7*
He possesses early speed and has claims, particularly if he can find the markers shortly after the start.
