Pakenham Tips for February 18
Ontoit Fillies and Mares BM64 Handicap Tips (Race 6)
Pakenham Best Bet - Race 6 No. 7 Shojiki

John Duff & Co BM64 Handicap Tips (Race 7)
Pakenham Next Best Bet - Race 7 No. 6 Jimmy Rockford
This galloper was mighty impressive at Stony Creek last start when camping just off the pace on a leader bias track to storm home in what was the second fastest last 1000m, 800m and 600m.
These times show that he will only improve up in trip, as does his pedigree being from VRC Derby winner Polanski.
Jimmy Rockford now comes up in trip to the seven furlongs which looks a big tick in his favour, although the only knock is that he comes up to 64 grade which is always a challenge.
The big track of Pakenham should suit his big stride well so he does look to get his chance to make it two from two.
Sportsbet Same Race Multi BM64 Handicap Tips (Race 8)
Pakenham Value Bet - Race 8 No. 1 Indernile
This horse is a gun fresh having had two wins and three placings from seven first-up attempts.
A gelding that loves the Pakenham circuit, winning twice and placing another three times from five attempts, while he loves the trip as well, winning three times and placing another five from 13 attempts.
Patrick Maloney rarely misses a ride aboard Indernile, so horse and jockey have good affiliation, while the form he brings into this race is quite strong around the likes of Designer Chef and Paperboy.
Fresh is when we want to be on him and at a great each-way price, he will go around as our value bet of the day at Pakenham.
