Due to run as Race 8 at 4:35pm (AEDT), a dozen runners face off in this year’s Listed Cranbourne Cup (2025m) with the markets at Ladbrokes.com.au led by The Cleaner ($4.60) and Tom Melbourne ($4.80).

The bookies are having a hard time separating the top two chances in Cranbourne Cup betting this spring with The Cleaner carrying 60kg top weight from gate three, while the imported Tom Melbourne is a midfield lightweight on just 54kg.

Darren Weir’s reigning Melbourne Cup winner Prince Of Penzance ($6.50) is accepted for the Cranbourne Cup, but is likely to run at Caulfield on Saturday instead in the Group 2 Ladbrokes Herbert Power Stakes (2400m).

The Cleaner chases his first win since last year’s Group 2 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m) and is out to atone for a last start sixth in the Group 1 Underwood Stakes (1800m) behind Black Heart Bart at Caulfield a fortnight ago.

Tom Melbourne meanwhile hasn’t won since March, the Lee & Anthony Freedman-trained Dylan Thomas six-year-old coming off a sixth behind Real Love in the Group 3 JRA Cup (2040m) over the same distance at Moonee Valley only last Friday night.

So will the top two fancies battle it out for the Cranbourne Cup win or is there value further down the markets from the likes of the improving Bring Something ($11) or local hope Plot The Course ($9)?

Our 2016 Cranbourne Cup Trifecta Tip is #4 Bring Something from #6 Tarquin and #2 The Cleaner

1st

#4 Bring Something ($11)

This Ken Keys-trained Sebring gelding as dead last (10th) in last year’s Cranbourne Cup result, but is out to atone in just his second run since. Setbacks saw him sidelined for nearly a year, but the now six-year-old looked good first-up when third over 1700m at Caulfield behind Group 1 runner this weekend Royal Rapture a fortnight ago. Will be better for the run, as winning form at this track / distance and drops from 57kg last start to 54.5kg with a gun barrier four draw and Craig Williams riding.

2nd

#6 Tarquin ($8)

Class factor about this John O’Shea-trained Hard Spun four-year-old, the Godolphin galloper running third in the JRA Cup last start at the distance. He hasn’t won since April, but is well weighted (54kg) and the form from his lead-up run is strong so happy to follow that for another placing at the distance here.

3rd

#2 The Cleaner ($4.60)

Gives the weight away to his rivals and is yet to perform up to his previous form for new trainer Gelagotis, but this Group 1 performer had a cult following for a long time for a reason and was under four lengths beaten in the Underwood. Distance suits and this is an easier field.
