Armidale is a Heavy 8 with the rail True.
Looks a perfect race for JUDGE O’REILLY to break through resuming from a spell here today. Finished less than a length behind I Am Vinnie on debut back in July before going to the paddock for a break. Has trialled well leading into this. Big watch.
1st: No2 JUDGE O’REILLY 2nd: *SCRATCHED* No8 Simply Dreaming; 3rd: No3 North Afrika; 4th: *SCRATCHED* No12 Meteor Rising
Sticking with NECESSARY to bounce back after just finishing outside of the placings at Pakenham six weeks back. Has been freshened for this and has won at her only attempt on the track. Looks to have found a very winnable race and looms as a serious threat to her rivals here today. Key player.
1st: No6 NECESSARY 2nd: No1 Penthouse Poet; 3rd: No5 Smooth Hustler; 4th: No7 Nations
Sticking with the consistent RAGE AGAINST to make it successive victories after winning well on this track last start. Settled behind the leader on the rails before finding the split to run away to a convincing 2.3 length victory defeating Miss Mumazara a fortnight back. Drawn well and will be ready to make a statement on a track he enjoys racing over. The one to beat.
1st: No6 RAGE AGAINST 2nd: No2 Loving Home; 3rd: *SCRATCHED* No1 Hippopus; 4th: No3 Melted Moments
TAN TAT TRUSTING (NEXT BEST BET) was narrowly defeated by A Shin Rock at Flemington last start and looks well placed back in grade here today. Has been racing in consistent form of late and did win by half a length three starts back at Morphettville. Maps to get back in his races but has a tremendous finish on him. The one to beat.
1st: No3 TAN TAT TRUSTING 2nd: No4 Black Sail; 3rd: No2 Benall; 4th No8 Into Rio
Drawn to get the run of the race sees the ultra-consistent FURRION (BEST BET) looking to make it four straight victories in today’s feature event, the 2018 Cranbourne Cup. This galloper is flying and looks the one to beat on going on his past victories which includes a tough last start victory at Caulfield defeating the likes of Best of Days and Runaway. Looks well placed from barrier one but this is his toughest test to date. Top pick.
1st: No4 FURRION 2nd: No1 Folkswood; 3rd: No7 Sully; 4th: No10 Runaway
