Pakenham Tips August 28


Sportsbet-Pakenham Three-Years-Old Maiden Plate Tips (Race 2)

Pakenham Value Bet - Race 2 No. 11 Melisende

She was tipped out following one run in January where it was as a well-supported $1.65 favourite but she had to settle for third behind a subsequent group two winner in Letzbeglam.

Although disappointing there considering the great run that was afforded to her and not being able to quicken when it counted, she's been given plenty of time to mature and is one of only three gallopers in this field with race experience.

By Hinchinbrook and out of a group two winning mare in Meliora who's already produced the dual stakes-winning juvenile I Am Immortal, Melisende has the tongue-tie applied now which may have explained the flop on debut (choked down).

Drawing to get the run of the race under Jye McNeil, they've opted for a return on the synthetic surface after not handling a Heavy 9 track in her most recent jump-out on August 12.

Michael Muaremov & Associates Synthetic Stayers Series Final Tips (Race 5)

Pakenham Best Bet - Race 5 No. 4 Magazine

This mare is racing in career best form and has been placed to perfection by the Ciaron Maher & David Eustace camp so far where she again looks to have found a suitable race via this $50,000 Synthetic Stayers Final.

Striking at better than 21% from their 48 winners when combining over the last 12 months, John Allen has a great record when teaming up with this powerful stable and he's been aboard Magazine for all three of her career victories.

Last start Magazine was impressive when going to 2200m for first time as she was in trouble for periods up straight but still proved far too strong when getting in the clear and doesn't go up in the weights here for what is the same grade.

We know she can run out the trip and arriving here with three staying efforts behind her which includes that synthetic success on August 4, Magazine can continue her consistent touch as the best bet at Pakenham this Friday.
