Listed Cranbourne Cup Tips – Cranbourne Race 8
#5 Domesky from #2 Ginga Dude and #1 Unusual Suspect
Domesky, who is trained at the track by Michael Kent, is our tip to win the 2011 Cranbourne Cup.
The four-year-old gelding finished third in his last start at Moonee Valley in the Group 3 JRA Cup and is also nominated for this year’s Caulfield Cup and Cox Plate.
Domesky will jump from the widest barrier of 14 in the 2011 Cranbourne Cup and will be ridden by jockey Craig Williams.
Ginga Dude is our pick for second in the Cranbourne Cup 2011, with the horse winning his last start in the First Light Racing Handicap at Moonee Valley.
Prior to that run Ginga Dude finished sixth in the Group 3 Patinack Farm Cameron Handicap first-up this spring when he was blocked for a run.
The eight-year-old gelding will jump from barrier 13 in the 2011 Cranbourne Cup and will be ridden by jockey Michael Walker.
For third, we are tipping Unusual Suspect, who finished fourth to Rekindled Interest last start in the Group 2 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes.
Unusual Suspect is expected to jump from gate eight in the Cranbourne Cup 2011 and will carry the top weight of 60 kilograms.
