Pakenham Tips for April 8
Dalton Consulting Engineers BM64 Handicap Tips (Race 5)
Pakenham Best Bet - Race 5 No. 10 Americain Angel
It is never easy come out of Maiden grade and go straight to 64 level, but this filly seems to have a world full of potential, notching up an eased down five length victory last start.
She now comes up to the mile which will suit her down to the ground being by Americain, and I love the three-year-olds against the older horses at this time of the year.
Americain Angel has great upside with just the four starts next to her name, and with Damian Lane sticking ,he is clearly looking to continue that already great affiliation with her.
Barrier 10 is my only little niggle with her and having to take a short price for a runner who is going to need that touch of luck, but she is on a clear upwards spiral and with just even luck, I do feel she puts this field away.
Ben Jenkins Takes On Sportsbet Class 1 Handicap Tips (Race 6)
Pakenham Value Bet - Race 6 No. 1 Shevrolet
Always had a soft spot for this galloper after his first outing where he was a winner at Moonee Valley over Sayumi who has reached a solid grade.
The issue with him is that the stable cannot get more than one run out of him a prep, just three starts into his career and having already had three racing preps, there might be a little issue in the background.
This prep, things seem to be going a little better with a nice jumpout and offical trial under the belt, so he has the miles back in his legs now for this first-up assignment.
If Shevrolet is anywhere near his best he would be starting favourite here, so happy to take a gamble and hope that he is at the price.

Pakenham Next Best Bet - Race 8 No. 1 Falls
This galloper found his best form last start behind Scream Dream who is a very good horse, leading the majority of the race, only to be nabbed late in the piece to finish in second spot.
He lost both foreplates in the run last start, so the fact he did not give up gives us a solid sign that he is right back to his best which would result in him being a short priced favourite.
Falls has had four weeks between runs to get over that big effort, now drawing barrier seven here, he can cruise across to the front and prove the one to run down once again.
Damian Lane in the last race is a little pattern I love to stick with, so with him hopping aboard this galloper, he goes in as one of the better bets of the night.
