Popular Cranbourne was the venue for a terrific night of harness racing on Tuesday July 10, with well backed winners the order of the night.

Melton mentor Geoff Walker's Life Sign/Mirra Mirra filly Fairest One Youare chalked up her 4th victory in 16 outings when successful in the Ultrasigns Pace for C0 class over 2080 metres.

Driven by Jodi Quinlan, Fairest One Youare from the pole was given the run of the race trailing the heavily supported Blazeaway Macray (gate three), enjoying a lovely trip throughout.

Using the sprint lane, Fairest One Youare finished best to score by a half head only from a game Sals Mo which worked to face the breeze, with Blazeaway Macray weakening over the concluding stages to be 1.7 metres away in third place. The mile rate 2-01.7.

Bacchus Marsh trainer Alan Tubbs and daughter Amy looked like providing multiple winners on paper with Blazeaway Macray, Melpark Maestro and Black Caprice all definite chances but it wasn't to be, with only long odds-on favourite Black Caprice ($1.30) saluting in the Farmhand Pace for C1 class over 1609 metres.

Sent forward from outside the front row (only five across the front line), Black Caprice was handed the lead on a platter by Greg Sugars aboard Go El Zhar, before treating his rivals with contempt, winning in a breeze from Go El Zhar and Stylish Jasper along the sprint lane from four back the markers in a slick rate of 1-56.

A colt by Armbro Operative from Sexy Lexy Whitby, Black Caprice has fronted the starter 18 times for 6 wins.

Rockbank trainer/driver Damian Wilson's honest 4-Y-0 John Street North/Trouble Chaton mare Latoya Lass brought up her 8th success in 36 race appearances, when victorious in the Rapidvite Pace for C1 class over 2080 metres, leading throughout from gate three to defeat Justabitoffun (gate four) which trailed in a rate of 2-02.7, with Arctic Legacy third after racing wide.

Long Forest husband and wife team of Andy & Kate Gath landed the SEN Sportsentral 2-Y-0 Pace over 1609 metres with promising Blissful Hall/Weona Rena colt Bliss Man in a rate of 2-01.1.

Zooming forward from outside the front line to arrest the lead from Easy Lightning (gate five), Bliss Man was never extended in winning by 6.5 metres in advance of Easy Lightning and Lethal Kiss (one/one - three wide home turn).

Daylesford's Mick Barby is having a lucky run at present and captured the ADE Turf Equipment Pace for C4 & C5 class over 2080 metres with Remember Jasper, a Village Jasper/Office Affair 6-Y-0 gelding.

Driven by Rod Petroff, Remember Jasper from the pole was given every opportunity following the pacemaker Western Connection next to him, before using the sprint lane to score in 2-00.8 from Melpark Maestro which was hampered in the back straight when Flying Class galloped ahead of him, with Western Connection holding down third.

A most impressive winner at Cranbourne on Tuesday was Life Sign/Starlitestarbright gelding Ohyeah Lifegoeson for Doreen owner/breeders John and Christine Yeomans and stable foreman Shane Gallagher in the Cranbourne Trainers Bonanza 3-Y-0 Pace over 2080 metres.

Trained in the name of John, Ohyeah Lifegoeson with Gavin Lang in the sulky came from near last at the bell to be six wide on the final bend, before motoring home at 100 miles an hour to register a runaway victory in 1-59.9 over the roughie Alltheriversrun (one/two - three wide home turn) and Ymbro Awesome which led.

A pair of veterans crossed the line in first place at the end of the 2575 metre Hyland Sportswear Trotters Handicap for T0 or better class, when 11-Y-0 Wagon Apollo/Ritadaft gelding Master Kiesey with Brian Gath aboard scored.

Driven a gem of a race, Master Kiesey trained by Brian Kiesey all the way from St Arnaud came from 20 metres to lead, before taking a trail on the favourite - South Australian Siegfried.

Allowing the 40 metre backmarker Shes Commando to move outside the leader approaching the home turn, Gath showed no interest in the sprint lane, allowing Master Kiesey to ease one/one on turning.

Given full rein on straightening, Master Kiesey having his 214th outing, let rip like a gazelle to bound away and score by 18.5 metres in 2-10.1 from Shes Commando, with Siegfried a further 16.5 metres away in third place.
