Cranbourne Cup 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Foxy Cleopatra was very good fresh and looks hard to beat in this field with Williams in the saddle. Euphoric is racing well and has been around the mark so far this prep. Here To Shock is due for another win and  finds the right race to do so. Just Folk has some strong form lines to add into the mix while Umgawa is also due for another win but gets its chance in this field.

Cranbourne Cup 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Pounding (8)

Been a while between drinks but has the class edge on this field. May need some luck from barrier 8 but this race is within reach and the jockey trainer combo are very hard to beat.

2. Just Folk (9)

Class runner lining up for start 35. Doesn’t win out of turn but never far away in races of this depth. Goes in the mix.

3. Here To Shock (5)

Going along okay this prep and maps for a good run in transit. Solid claims and has less convictions than some of these.

4. Ascension (11)

Loves this trip and gets along well with Coffey with 2 wins from 3 starts. Will require luck early from the draw but more than capable of taking this out.

5. Charterhouse (10)

Needs another win but this race is within reach. Respect any market moves.

6. Umgawa (6)

Should be around the mark and is a previous winner over this trip. Doesn’t win out of turn but this race is within reach.

7. Lord Vladivostok (2)

Racing well and looks over the odds launching from the ideal gate. Had good backing the start prior and does look nicely placed in this field.

8. Rizayan (1)

Can’t have.

9. Foxy Cleopatra (3)

Excellent run last start and should enjoy the rise in trip. Williams is an ideal booking and nicely weighted in a field of this calibre.

10. Euphoric (7)

Has been around the mark all prep so far and has built a strong record. Looked home for all money last start and this race is no harder. Strong claims.

11. Beehunter (4)

Can’t have.
