Changes announced to Monday's Cranbourne Trials

Racing Victoria (RV) wishes to advise that changes have been made to Monday’s official trials at Cranbourne. 

The Cranbourne Turf Club (CTC) has advised RV that they are unable to conduct the  trials on the outside training track as it has not returned from a recent renovation to the Club’s satisfaction due to inconsistent and unfavourable weather.

The trials will now be conducted on the northern track which only has capacity to conduct trials over 800m. 

As such the following trials are now available at Cranbourne on Monday:

  • 2YO C&G 800M
  • 2YO FILLIES 800M
  • 3YO C&G 800M
  • 3YO FILLIES 800M
  • 3YO&UP MAIDEN-CLASS2 800M
  • 3YO&UP CLASS 3-OPEN 800M

All other trials are cancelled on the day.

To assist impacted horses seeking to trial over longer distances, a new set of official trials has been programmed at Werribee on Tuesday, 9 February. 

This set of trials will be conducted over 1100m and only open to:

  • 2YOs
  • 3YOs- with a rating of 70+
  • Older horses with a rating of 80+

Any unraced horse or horses with an embargo will have to trial at Cranbourne on Monday in an 800m trial.  

Nominations for the trials at Cranbourne close at midday tomorrow Friday, 5 February. 

All trainers will be required to nominate for the trials at Werribee by midday on Monday, 8 February.
