Pakenham Tips May 30

Sarah Takes On Sandi BM58 Handicap Tips (Race 5)

Pakenham Best Bet - Race 5 No. 5 Amani

Thomas Sadler’s filly has shown good form in winning twice form five starts this prep including when breaking her maiden over 1200m at Terang when racing first up.

The selection’s sole unplaced effort since that success came when meeting interference at the start prior to finishing seventh of eight over 1200m in a metro race at Sandown two starts later. 

The four-year-old returned to winning ways when confirming she handles the forecast soft 6 conditions in saluting in a course and distance Benchmark 64 handicap contest on her next start. 

The pick found only multiple course winner Bob The Horse too strong when stepped up to 1600m when taking on the boys in a Benchmark 64 handicap at this track earlier this month.

Rhys McLeod, on board for her last two starts is again in the saddle and jumping from an inside alley the Smart Missile filly looks capable of returning to the winners’ enclosure.

Pakenham Value Bet - Race 6 No. 1 Miss Santorini

The mare ended her last prep with a couple of good efforts over this course and distance including when beaten half-a-length into third in a Benchmark 64 handicap at the end of February.

The five-year-old followed that up with a second, beaten just under three-and-a-half-lengths in a similar contest with both of those efforts coming on good 4 tracks.

The daughter of Eurozone failed to shine dropped to 1212m for a Benchmark 64 handicap held on a soft 5 surface at Sale when returning from a short break.

Trained by Barry Goodwin the pick’s overall record on the forecast soft going of five wins and three places form eleven starts is impressive and she is capable of much better than she showed last time.

A wide barrier is a negative in this contest however she is taken to overcome that to deliver her second win at this venue.

Pakenham Next Best Bet -  Race 8 No. 4 Thunder Award

The gelding broke his maiden when delivering a narrow margin victory in a 1200m contest when debuting at this venue in November.

The three-year-old registered a good effort in metro company when fourth stepped up to 1400m for a Class 1 handicap on the Lakeside track at Sandown subsequently.

The pick was beaten less than one-and-a-half-lengths on that occasion with connections opting to spell the son of Shamus Award subsequently.

The youngster was slowly away when dropped to 1125m for a Benchmark 64 handicap when returning at Geelong earlier this month on his only subsequent start.

Racing on a wet track, a heavy 8 for the first time that day the selection kept on nicely for fourth shaping as if a step back up in distance would suit.

While a wide barrier here isn’t ideal the Lloyd Kennewell & Lucy Yeomans team boast an impressive 56% strike-rate (5/9) on turf here in the last 12 months and their representative is selected to deliver a victory in the finale.
