Pakenham Tips March 3


Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale Maiden Plate Tips (Race 3)


Pakenham Best Bet - Race 3 No. 2 Johnny Watts On

The son of Brazen Beau has had fewer chances than most in this field placing second in three of his four starts to date.

The four-year-old filled second spot in both starts in 2023 and returned from over a year off the track with a fifth in a track and trip maiden February 8.

The pick jumped at odds of $21 when beaten less than two lengths in a heat of the Sportsbet Future Stars Series.

The form of that contest has been boosted since with the third home that day, Prince Prawn saluting at this venue on Thursday.

The selection went on to lose out by a narrow margin in a course and distance maiden two weeks later and he has a good barrier in five for this contest.

Jordan Childs rode the colt from the front last time out and his mount looks capable of breaking his maiden at the fifth attempt.

Pakenham Next Best Bet - Race 5 No. 5 Elderberry

The three-year-old broke her maiden when racing on a soft 7 track at Moe when racing first up in her last prep back in June.

That effort came by one-and-a-half-lengths in an 1100m contest on the fillies' third racecourse appearance.

Placed twice on wet tracks subsequently when racing at metro level in 2023 she was beaten just over a length at Sandown Lakeside in August prior to being spelled.

The selection contested a 1200m Benchmark 64 handicap on that occasion but showed that quicker going is no issue when runner-up on a good 3 track at Bendigo first up this time around.

Trained by Anthony & Sam Freedman the filly was beaten less than a length over 1100m in a Benchmark 64 handicap that day with a couple of those in behind placed since.

The daughter of Bolt D’Oro has a good barrier here and looks capable of recording the second win of her career.

Pakenham Roughie - Race 7 No. 13 Satin Image

While the six-year-old is without a win since scoring over 1600m on a soft 7 track here in September last year she has delivered some good efforts in the interim period.

Those efforts include fourth-place finishes at Sale and Moe in September with the second of those starts seeing her beaten less than half-a-length over 2088m.

The selection jumped at odds of $31 when resuming in a Benchmark 64 handicap over this track and trip last month.

The mare came home four, beaten just over three-and-a-half-lengths that day but she showed improvement in her last prep with the previously mentioned win coming second up.

Trainer Heather Stephens applies a tongue tie for the first time here with her representative looking one of the main pace angles here.

The pick has an inside barrier here and may prove up to getting out to make all to spring a surprise.

Pakenham Value Bet - Race 8 No. 10 Princess Tosen

Ciaron Maher’s filly broke her maiden when racing at Warracknabeal first up in her last spell and while she failed to shine at Seymour subsequently she has been in good form since.

The selection placed in two of her first three starts this time around including when two-and-a-half-lengths third over 1454 in a Restricted 58 handicap at Kyneton.

The pick raced on a good 4 track that day and similar conditions are expected here with the filly going on to salute at Werribee subsequently.

That Werribee success came when stepped up to the 1600m distance she tackles here for the first time with the selection getting home by a narrow margin that day. 

The daughter of Tosen Stardom had Bellsprout who reopposes here in second that day with the pair over two-and-a-half-lengths clear of the third. 

The four-year-old has a decent alley here and with Ben Allen up looks capable of completing a double.
