Pakenham Synthetic Tips for April 29

Iron Jack Australian Lagers 3YO Maiden Plate Tips (Race 1)

Pakenham Synthetic Best Bet - Race 1 No. 1 Akaka Falls

I am confident that off the back of a luckless effort behind a fairly handy horse, it is finally this gelding's birthday.

Although costly to punters, he has not been running against below average horses and now coming to the synthetic, of course that is a question, but he has the tactical speed that suits this circuit.

Jockey Joe Bowditch is in flying form at the moment, striking at nearly 30% from his last 50 rides, so he is a jockey in form that we need to be following.

If Akaka Falls cannot breakthrough in this event then he'll struggle to win in Victoria.

Pakenham Synthetic Value Bet - Race 6 No. 4 Cake Walker

I am hoping that back to a synthetic surface, that this mare can find her winning form again as she did when winning by more than three lengths on the Ballarat Synthetic last season.

She then came here to flop badly, but was spelled straight after, so I would say she peaked at Ballarat and went to the well one too many times in her attempt to go back-to-back.

Cake Walker has been well in the market across this season on the grass without winning too many times, but has been very consistent over these longer trips.

If she handles the Pakenham Synthetic surface, she is well over the odds in what is an 'okay' staying event.

Pakenham Synthetic Next Best Bet - Race 7 No. 2 It'sayesfromme

This boy has not shown his best since last year's synthetic season where he is unbeaten on the surface, beating the likes of Rebel Racer in this grade.

He has the blinkers applied for the first time on Thursday night and will have some residual fitness from his run at Yarra Valley six weeks ago, so the mile will be no issue.

The son of Dundeel seems to gain a turn-of-foot on this surface which comes in handy for a horse who settles midfield or beyond.

Due to his record on the synthetic and the blinkers going on from a big stable, I am confident he will be right in the finish.
