Daily Racing Tips – Friday, April 16

Cranbourne: Race 1 (5:30pm)
No. 2 Five Bulls

Five Bulls has improved for each of his three starts since debuting and is ready to win at Cranbourne this afternoon.

The Stratum gelding finishing fourth on debut at Terang and has only just missed at his last two, finishing second in races at Pakenham and Stawell.

He looks to be at peak fitness for this contest and might not be offered a better opportunity to win.

Cranbourne: Race 3 (6:30pm)
No. 5 The Sistine Tales

The Sistine Tales has returned some nice efforts since debuting and is another maiden that looks ready to win at Cranbourne tonight.

The Headwater gelding has placed in two of four career starts to date, and only just missed in a photo finish at Kilmore last time out.

He should get every chance in this small field and really doesn’t have any excuses.

Cranbourne: Race 6 (8pm)
No. 4 Contrition

Contrition looks well placed to record another win at Cranbourne tonight.

The Tavistock mare placed at Pakenham when resuming and returned an impressive effort to easily win at Ballarat second-up.

She returned something of a flat effort in a better race at Sandown last time out, but this does look to be a drop in class and she’ll improve further.

Cranbourne: Race 7 (8:30pm)
No. 13 The Midnight Shift

This looks to be the best race on tonight’s Cranbourne card, but I’m confident that The Midnight Shift will take beating.

The Midnight Shift has returned three competitive starts since resuming this time, and was last seen finishing two lengths behind Rebel Racer in the midweeks at Sandown.

I like that he’s been back for a trial since that effort and Jamie Kah retains the ride.
