Cranbourne Tips for January 8

Vale Karen Walker 3YO Fillies Maiden Plate Tips (Race 1)

Cranbourne Best Bet - Race 1 No. 1 Aminatu

This three-year-old filly was very good first-up behind a smart one in Zesty Belle who has some city form stacked behind her.

Off a three-week freshen-up, she comes into this race with enough race fitness and the idea of staying at 1000m looks ideal considering that short break.

Eventually, she will be a stronger horse over the six furlongs, but for now, this race looks a suitable option based on exposed form to try and get that win out of the way.

From gate three, jockey Damien Thornton will likely camp on the leaders heels, one out one back and look to kick around the bed, putting the race to bed quite early from home.

Cranbourne Value Bet - Race 5 No. 5 Cupid's Bow

This mare from the Freedman stable has been a bit of a punter's nightmare, always being well backed in her races with spruiks over social media that she will be winning, but forget the last run on a heavy deck, she didn't handle it.

We know she gets around the Cranbourne circuit, having had two starts for two second placings and third-up she has some form, yet to miss a place.

In 14 career starts, she has only missed the placings three times, so she is a model of consistency, deserving of another win.

Her first-up run this prep showed she is back in great form and that winner of her last start has since won in town, so the form is stacking right up for her to feature in this race.

Cranbourne Next Best Bet - Race 8 No. 9 Breeze 'N' Luna

Another three-year-old filly who has the potential to reach city grade at some stage of her career, knocking over the Maiden in nice fashion last start.

With Damian Lane aboard, he knows how to ride a winner in the last race and the fact he is sticking with her up in grade is a confident sign that she will be running well, as well as the fact that he only has three rides for the night.

Her Maiden win was over 1400m and now stepping up the mile for a daughter of Mongolian Khan only suits.

If there is any rain about, this will only favour her chances but she still has the class to beat them on top of the ground.
