Cranbourne Race 8: Cranbourne Cup 2025m

10/10/2015: With every run this campaign Tayoo has been showing improvement and as this race will be run he gets his chance sitting off the pace. It looks very much as if this is the race he has been set for. Extra Zero is the form horse based on his Turnbull Stakes run which was franked by yesterday’s win by Amralah in the Herbert Power Handicap. Index Linked is no star second up but he has the class to overcome that problem. He beat Extra Zero at Caulfield at this distance with Big Memory third earlier this year. They will again finish close together. Big Memory ran a ripper of a race at Group1 level to Mourinho and The Cleaner last start and if that form comes here he will feature strongly in the finish. It’s just the 57 days spell I am worrying about. Pacific Heights had trouble securing a run in the Benalla Cup and when he eventually did get out the bird had flown and he was out-sprinted. I would imagine C Williams will be stoking him up early and be challenging as they straighten.

Front Runners Nil.
On Pacers (3) Pacific Heights, (4) Big Memory, (11) Taiyoo, (13) Kareeming.
Mid Fielders (2) Nesbo, (7) Digitalism, (8) Extra Zero, (10) Index Linked.
Get Back (6) Refectory, (9) Bring Something, (12) Akzar.
PACE COMMENTS As I have no horse that regularly leads this race is open to some initiative from one of my on pacers. I suspect Kareeming will be the one drawn wide who needs to go forward, as well as Taiyoo to a lesser extent, which gives the rest of the field a good trail. I don't think the pace will be breathtaking early but usually in a country cup the action starts early and will afford my mid fielders their chance.
