Pakenham Tips for January 28

Wise Choice Catering 3YO Maiden Plate Tips (Race 4)

Pakenham Next Best Bet - Race 4 No. 4 Magnus Bellagio

Quietly confident in the chances of this gelding, staying at the 1400m trip and drawing the inside.

He was backed heavily last start in a nice race at Geelong, but was caught wide and did it tough for the whole trip, so it was very much a forgive run.

Magnus Bellagio is bett suited with a colder ride as we saw first-up at Mornington, where he rocketed home after missing the kick to be beaten by just over a length.

Having taken great improvement from his two starts to date, he finds a great race and can salute at an each-way price.

De Bortoli Wines Class 1 Handicap Best Bet (Race 5)

Pakenham Best Bet - Race 5 No. 1 Duke Of Neworleans

Although there's no flash odds, he looks the obvious winner on the program after belting Maiden opposition by eight lengths and running well in a city race against some more experienced horses.

The son of Hallowed Crown has had three weeks between runs, so is being spaced out nicely and now rises up to 1400m which he is bred to run out strongly.

He once again has drawn an inside gate and with little pressure in the race, Ethan Brown should be able to find the top spot in running and dictate proceedings.

Duke Of Neworleans clearly has all the class in the world, but now it is just a matter of going through the grades and getting his rating up to tackle stronger company.

Sportsbet Same Race Multi BM64 Handicap Tips (Race 8)

Pakenham Value Bet - Race 8 No. 6 Vancouver Lad

A strong winner on debut via a heavy surface, coming from off the pace to get his head down on the line to win last August,

He then went to town off a four week break and stepped up in trip to the 1300m, running behind Caulfield Guineas runner-up Aysar, so even though it was a ninth placing, was six lengths off of Group One form.

He has trialled up nicely leading into this preparation, with the latest jumpout quite impressive when showing early toe, finishing third and only beaten a neck, with a big gap back to the rest of the field.

Vancouver Lad has been gelded ahead of this second racing preparation and has the services of Michael Walker for this first-up attempt.
