Pakenham Racing Tips For March 5 - Can Irish Butterfly extend with the blinkers?

Pakenham hosts their weekly Thursday night meeting where they hold eight races.

The rail is out nine metres and the track is currently rated in the soft state.

Our best bet of the night gets the blinkers on for the first time and out next best comes into her race off the back of an impressive trial.

Pakenham Best Bet

Race 7 No. 3 Irish Butterfly

Third up, fit and with the blinkers on, he looks ready to break through.

Both runs this prep have been encouraging, but these blinkers on in a weaker grade looks a winning formula.

Barrier four should mean that he gets a nice run in behind the speed, saving him for one finishing kick over the final furlong.

That last start form looks quite strong on paper behind Falls, albeit on a wet track.

What we can gather from that performance is that he does enjoy the wet going so if Pakenham does get a little rain, it will not effect his chances.

He looks a standout of the program and is my best bet of the Pakenham card.

Pakenham Next Best Bet

Race 4 No. 11 Vista Girl

An interesting runner on the program, going horribly before a spell, but winning a recent Werribee trial with ease with a barrier blanket on for the first time.

This may mean she was practically 'cooking' herself in the gates that much that she had nothing left to finish off her races.

In the trial, she sat in behind the leader, peeled off their back and went to the line only clicked up for four or five strides.

I think this $6.50 available will shorten on the night so I would advise taking that now.
