Cranbourne Cup 2022 tips
Cranbourne Cup tips has traditionally been led by in-form staying types coming off lead-up runs in similar or tougher grade races like the Group 3 Naturalism Stakes (2000m) at Caulfield and Flemington’s Group 3 The Bart Cummings (2500m).
In 2021 the Cranbourne Cup betting markets instead favoured milers that were backing-up off a run in the Group 1 Kennedy Cantala (1600m) over the same distance at Flemington on Derby Day a fortnight earlier.
King Magnus improved on a lead-up and luckless Kennedy Cantala Stakes fifth to win the 2021 Cranbourne Cup over the reduced distance.
Any international horses over for the carnival that contest the Cranbourne Cup are often kept safe in betting, while the Cranbourne Cup odds traditionally favour the class horses with plenty of the higher-weighted and rated runners saluting in recent years including UK raider Folkswood (59kg in 2017), Mourinho (59kg in 2014) and Pakal (60kg in 2013).
