Daily Racing Tips – Pinker Pinker Plate Night Special


Cranbourne - Race 5 5:45pm AEST

No. 5 Lofty Heights

Lofty Heights doesn’t win out of turn, but he absolutely loves racing on a wet track and looks well-placed to add to that record in the fifth at Cranbourne tonight.

The High Chapparal gelding never really got going in his latest assignment from out wide, but came very close to claiming the top money the start prior when half-a-length second at Geelong over a similar trip.

With some weight relief, I can’t find any reason why he won’t win.

Cranbourne - Race 7 6:45pm AEST

No. 2 Impecunious

This is an excellent edition of the Pinker Pinker Plate and Impecunious looks the one to beat following a last-start fifth in the Stocks Stakes at The Valley.

The Kiwi import was held up around the 400m mark in that race but still showed a real turn of foot once clear.

She likes to get back and run on, so the wide gate suits, while the fact she’s also won on heavy going before is an obvious plus.

Cranbourne - Race 8 7:15pm AEST

No. 10 Moeen

Moeen looks set to peak in her third run back after bolting in to finish only 1.5L fifth at Flemington two weeks ago.

The Phillip Stokes-trained Moeen rattled off some speedy sectionals over the final stages and should be in for another big finish with some weight off her back.

She hasn’t done a ton of racing of rain-affected going, but her recent form suggests a win is on the horizon.

Cranbourne - Race 9 7:45pm AEST

No. 5 Brazen Song

Brazen Song showed real improvement to finish runner-up at Mornington in her second start back and should enjoy getting out over further now.  

The five-year-old by Brazen Beau led coming out of the turn before being run down late, but I think she’ll enjoy a more genuine tempo here just off the speed.

She’s won previously third-up and has winning claims over this trip.
