Cranbourne Tips August 5

TAB Long May We Play Plate Tips (Race 3)

Cranbourne Best Bet - Race 3 No. 7 Emerald Crown

This 4YO mare has not been seen for 22 weeks leading into this race after a debut preparation where she ran two placings, including in the city.

The Lakeside third was behind a horse called Sky Horse who has since won twice and placed fourth at Group Three level, so these are really strong form lines coming into the race.

We saw last prep that when she stepped up to the 1300m, she really improved, so this is no shock to see her first-up over that trip again.

With tactical speed, she can bowl out of the gates and take a power of catching as our best bet of the day.

Cranbourne Next Best Bet - Race 5 No. 2 Lunar Flare

She is a mare in form for Grahame Begg, winning both of her last starts in similar contests.

The win from two back was against stronger opposition, where the third placed horse has since won in town.

Last start she beat Austria at this track by over length, and has copped a 2kg weight swing against her.

She may well have won by further had she found some more room approcahing the turn, the wieght swing may not play a huge role in the result of the race.

As they say, 'always back the mare in form' so that is what we will be doing.
