Crimson Tears has only made one competitive appearance at the races to date, but she mustered a smart turn of foot to run on well in the straight at Cranbourne and will have taken plenty of benefit from the experience. She is by prominent Japanese sire Heart’s Cry and trained Darren Weir has had plenty of success with similarly-bred horses of late. The doesn’t look to be any real stars in this field and she represents good value to break her maiden.
Soluminate is yet to break his maiden, but he has gone extremely close several times this campaign and won’t be offered a better opportunity than the one he has at Cranbourne this evening. The Statue Of Liberty gelding finished a credible third over 1300m at Bendigo on April 24th, before storming home to place second over this course and distance last time out. He’s drawn ideally and will be given a good ride by Brad Rawiller.
Silvera ran on strongly to finish fifth at Caulfield first-up and with natural improvement, will be difficult to beat at Cranbourne tonight. The High Chaparral gelding has been a strong and consistent performer throughout his entire racing career so far, in races far tougher than this. He is stepping back from City grade into this field and is drawn ideally in barrier 6.
Best Each-Way Bet
Charcuterie has not been seen at the races for more than a year, but he is a horse that typically comes to hand quickly and has raced in far tougher company than he finds in Canberra this afternoon. The Snitzel gelding failed to miss a place through three starts last time in and he can find a handy position in transit from an ideal draw this afternoon.
