EXPERT RACING TIPS: PAKENHAM

PAKENHAM PREVIEW | THURSDAY THE 22ND

Rail: True | Track: Good 4

A warm, drying day in Melbourne on Thursday, the wind may have an impact. It’s a tailwind in the home straight and a headwind down the back straight, expect horses with a little bit of cover but on-speed best in circle races and on-speed horses heavily advantaged from chute.

LAY: 5. Last Druid (WIN) for 3 units (Rated at: $10)

This appears a race in two between Untapped, who comes through the strongest form reference and Barbaric Lad, who was huge on debut at Sandown when $41 into $5.

Last Druid had every possible behind Barbaric Lad and I can’t see any reason why the former would turn the tables on the latter here.

BACK: 6. Princeofcambridge (WIN) for 2 units (Rated at: $2)

Prince Of Cambridge started under $4 in a much harder race than this last start, he sat on a very fast tempo and was entitled to drop out, only beaten 1.8L was a good effort. He stays in BM64 grade but this is an easier race and his map is perfect.

RACE 1

3. Finale
1. Amarysso
8. Monolink
9. Rebellious Hope

Betting Strategy

NO BET.

Little between top and bottom in this race.

Finale the most likely, she was very well backed in a Metro maiden on debut before running close up in two country maidens. The jumpout was good and B.Shinn goes on.

RACE 2

2. Johnny Watts On
3. Kerensky
10. Simplicity
4. Welkin Star

Betting Strategy

NO BET.

Race has been gutted by scratchings, Johnny Watts On was ok in a harder race than this at this track and distance first-up. Fitter for that and maps well.

RACE 3

2. Barbaric Lad
9. Untapped
3. Cheers
11. She Smashes

Betting Strategy

LAY: 5. Last Druid (WIN) for 3 units (Rated at: $10)

This appears a race in two between Untapped, who comes through the strongest form reference and Barbaric Lad, who was huge on debut at Sandown when $41 into $5.

Last Druid had every possible behind Barbaric Lad and I can’t see any reason why the former would turn the tables on the latter here.

RACE 4

4. Fam Gorman
7. Cherokee Brave
6. Smokin’ Giant
10. Wanda’s Outlaw

Betting Strategy

NO BET.

Smokin’ Giant was well supported in a harder race last start and gets back to the home track and up in trip will all suit, gate one is a negative.

Cherokee Brave bolted in last start, can go on with it and Fam Gorman was completely unsuited versus race shape first-up, can improve sharply.

RACE 5

1. Princeofchambridge
8. Wealdstone
4. Fagin
6. Ethel Maude

Betting Strategy

BACK: 6. Princeofcambridge (WIN) for 2 units (Rated at: $2)

Prince Of Cambridge started under $4 in a much harder race than this last start, he sat on a very fast tempo and was entitled to drop out, only beaten 1.8L was a good effort. He stays in BM64 grade but this is an easier race and his map is perfect.

RACE 6

11. Pure Paradise
4. Eclipsion
3. Cavalry Man
9. Thoughtful Woman

Betting Strategy

NO BET.

A solid edition of the future stars but from a betting perspective, I have little idea.

Miss Cardannic is knocking on the door, bursting to win a maiden but she is well exposed now.

Attain comes through what I expect to be a really good form race.

RACE 7

6. Master Montaro
2. Sandy Prince
3. Imperial Lad
14. Coronation Keith

Betting Strategy

NO BET.

Lindsay Park quinellaed this very BM78 last year with So Risque beating Conqueror.

Master Montaro won well last start, will only keep improving through the preparation is my thoughts and Sandy Prince must be in the game too.

RACE 8

5. Saint Lazare
3. Master Right
7. Fang It
6. Zilzie Lad

Betting Strategy

NO BET.

Worst race of the night, no opinion.
