2021 Pakenham Cup Tips

Pakenham Cup 2021 Best Bet - Team Captain


I loved this boy’s turn-of-foot over 2800m at Flemington last start, putting pay to some slow rivals, but I don’t think he is meeting anything much better here.

Team Captain  beat Wil John out of sight that day and he subsequently won the Jericho Cup, but prior had the measure of Smokin’ Romans over 2400m which is why I can’t have him as short as he is.

This looks to be there target race and I know the stable will have him humming come race time.

Pakenham Cup 2021 Next Best Bet - Mankayan

I did not want to find this gelding, but the more I look at the race, the more slow ones I see, which leaves me with him in for second. 

Mankayan was tough last start at Cranbourne when getting the better of Blandford Lad, but had been a perennial bridesmaid in his starts prior, albeit in slightly stronger races.

He should have taken some good confidence from last start and could well go on with it, as the Pakenham Cup does lack depth.

Pakenham Cup 2021 Value Bet - In A Twinking

This is the blowout for mine who has been running better than his form suggests, ready to peak over 2500m here.

I liked his work late over 2000m in the Ballarat Cup, and Lindsey Smith seems to have set him for this race, now peaking third-up.

In A Twinling has not been far off them in strong staying company in New Zealand, so this trip is only going to be suiting him more at this time of the prep.
