Anakie trainer Jeffrey Britton appears to have a mortgage on the $25,000 first prize for the Group 3 Cranbourne Classic final over 520 metres at Cranbourne tonight.

Amazingly, Britton has ‘half the field’ (four runners) in the time-honoured event – Spearhead (box two), Weblec Ace (box three), Mister Harlewood (box four) and Weblec Jack (box five).

And even though Weblec Ace was the only qualifier to break the 30-second barrier in last week’s heats – he posted a sizzling 29.92sec win – The Watchdog has selected Mister Harlewood to claim the spoils.

Mind you, there’s some logic in The Watchdog’s prognostication as Mister Harlewood – a winner of five races from 15 starts – has already competed at the highest level. He was a finalist in this year’s Group 1 Vic Peters Classic (520m) at Wentworth Park in Sydney.

Mister Harlewood was also a reserve for the recent Group 3 Warragul St Leger (460m), which was taken out by the Britton-trained Mepunga Daniel.

He has also notched four sub 30-second wins at The Meadows (525m) – 29.92sec, 29.87sec, 29.79sec and 29.76sec.

Check out Mister Harlewood’s most recent win at The Meadows, from box eight, on June 15:
