Pakenham Tips April 11

Genyou Builders Maiden Plate Tips (Race 2)

Pakenham Roughie - Race 2 No. 8 Pop Quiz

Michelle Payne’s filly failed to shine when a well-beaten fourth in her only barrier trial which came over 800m at Terang at the end of February. 

However, the filly took a step forward when Payne herself rode when making her debut in a 1000m maiden at this circuit last month.

Racing from off the pace the daughter of No Nay Never kept on nicely in behind to finish fifth, beaten just over five lengths when racing on a good 4 surface.

The three-year-old is expected to have improved for that experience while the step up in distance she encounters here is also expected to suit.

Billy Egan is a positive jockey booking with his mount having been allocated a decent barrier six from the rail.

The selection’s breeding offers hope concerning the switch to a forecast wet track with her dam having performed with credit in wet conditions and she may prove up to surprising here. 

Damien Paino Takes On Sportsbet Class 1 Handicap Tips (Race 5)

Pakenham Best Bet - Race 5 No. 1 Pure Paradise

The filly showed good form at two including in a couple of valuable wet track contests at Caulfield and Ballarat. 

However, she has demonstrated improvement since blinkers were fitted including when returning with a second in an 1100m maiden at Gold Coast in January.

The pick went on to lose out by just over half-a-length when fourth in the valuable $3m Gold Coast Magic Millions 3yo Guineas over 1400m a week later.

The daughter of Capitalist belied odds of $61 to deliver a strong finishing effort having raced from off the pace in a sixteen-runner field that day.

The selection duly got off the mark when justifying favouritism in a 1400m maiden held on a good 4 track here next time.

Trained by Lloyd Kennewell & Lucy Yeomans, the three-year-old has been freshened since a good fourth in the Group 2 Angus Aramansco Stakes at Caulfield in February.

Blake Shinn takes the ride here and dropping in grade his mount looks up to doubling her career tally. 

Irwin Stockfeed 0-64 Handicap Tips (Race 7)

Pakenham Value Bet - Race 7 No. 12 Delta Sky

The four-year-old showed decent form last season placing twice in maiden races at Bendigo in addition to a couple of respectable performances at this venue.

Stephen Brown’s filly has shown improvement this season however including when runner-up in a 1200m maiden at Seymour in October.

Racing on a soft 5 track that day the four-year-old was making her first start of the season and she got off the mark when racing at Geelong three starts later.

The filly came home over a length clear of her rivals in a 1521m maiden held on a good 4 track in December in that Geelong event and she was spelled following that success.

While the daughter of Delta Sky failed to shine in a Caulfield Heath barrier trial in February she has placed on both previous first-up starts.

The switch to a wet track here should prove no issue and connections decision to scratch from races at Echuca and Benalla to head here may pay dividends.

West Gippsland Vets BM64 Handicap Tips (Race 8)

Pakenham Next Best Bet - Race 8 No. 4 The Claimant

Trainer Michael Kent has his horses in great form currently with a 44% strike-rate (4/9) and all bar one runner finishing in the first three since March 21.

The handler’s representative here showed a liking for this track when registering a victory in a similar race to this over course and distance at the start of February.

The five-year-old has followed that effort up with two third-place finishes in similar events including when racing at metro level at Moonee Valley at the start of last month.

The selection was beaten just over a length in a six-runner contest held on a good 4 track at Moonee Valley.

The form of that contest is working out well with the winner and sixth both winning twice subsequently. 

The drop to country-level racing is in the gelding’s favour and while quicker going than forecast would be preferred he looks capable of recording his second win this prep.
