Core Protective Group 3YO Maiden Plate Tips (Race 3)

Cranbourne Next Best Bet - Race 3 No. 11 Kumo Sun

This filly from the Phillip Stokes yard has a stack of upside and looks really well placed to break the maiden here.

She can build off her first-up performance at Geelong where she was wide throughout and with her best work being over the last 50 metres of that event, there's a strong platform for this assignment.

Second-up last campaign, Kumo Sun was runner-up to Debt’n’deficit who along with being a subsequent city winner, was also very competitive in the Listed Bendigo Guineas back in March.

With natural improvement expected off that fresh run, Kumo Sun is capable of getting on the board in the third from Cranbourne at a good price.

TAB Long May We Play BM64 Handicap Tips (Race 5)

Cranbourne Best Bet - Race 5 No. 13 Chatelaine

The in-form Patrick Payne stable prepare this ex-Kiwi mare who has shown ability in all three Australian outings and will be better from a strong fresh attempt.

By Tavistock and out of a half-sister to a multiple stakes-winner in Palos Verdes, Chatelaine broke her maiden over the mile last time in and was then sent for a spell.

She was enormous when resuming this campaign over the six furlongs at Ballarat when being on the receiving end of some interference in the run home as an eventual runner-up to Mystery Shot who franked the form nicely by winning at Caulfield last Saturday.

The rise to 1400 metres is ideal now for Chatelaine and with jockey Tahlia Hope having the benefit this time around of a much kinder draw, she can score on this four-year-old as the best bet at Cranbourne on Thursday.

OBrien Real Estate BM70 Handicap Tips (Race 7)

Cranbourne Value Bet - Race 7 No. 5 Raven's Blaze

With two first-up victories to her name, this five-year-old can produce fresh and arrives to a winnable race.

Team Noonan combine with Raven's Blaze who was a two-length winner when resuming in the winter of 2019 and whilst she couldn't get a victory last time in, she was competing against stronger company for the most part.

Her highlight for that campaign was a second placing in $125,000 Benchmark 70 and after going close in another Moonee Valley effort in January, was tipped out after a flop at Group Three level.

All four career wins of Raven's Blaze have come over the five furlongs and as a relatively versatile galloper, they'll have options late in this Cranbourne card at a double-figure quote.
