Pakenham-Synthetic Tips for May 13

A1 Civil Maiden Plate Tips (Race 3)

Pakenham-Synthetic Best Bet - Race 3 No. 4 Star Of Leon

This galloper had every chance last start as the $1.50 favourite when he almost hit the front too early and did not see Stratum's Reward to his outside charging at him late.

The blinkers come off so that when Star Of Leon does accelerate, he can see if there is something coming at him late in an attempt to find a second win for the horse.

What he did show was that he can handle the Synthetic surface and he is going to find a few races to win in 58 and 64 grade on the surface once he breaks through.

The three-year-old comes back to the 1400m and hopefully we can see the best of him come to the fore.

Pakenham-Synthetic Next Best Bet - Race 7 No. 6 Kermy

I do believe that this gelding is going to prove a synthetic specialist based off the arrogance of his last win and what jockey Michael Poy said after the event.

He has the tactical speed to lead up this event which is exactly where you want to be on this surface and although comes up in grade and draws wide, one of the four main speed factors is drawn to his outside which should give him a nice sit.

Poy has a great affiliation with the horse which I do believe is important for a horse's confidence, especially straight after their maiden win.

If he draws in, he is favourite for the race, but happy to take the price even with a wide gate.

Pakenham-Synthetic Value Bet - Race 8 No. 5 Rock The Bowler

If he can find his best synthetic form he is the class horse in the race, but has seemingly struggled to find his best for a while now which is a slight concern.

Rock The Bolwler has the blinkers re-applied which is a sign that he may have been sparked up in a piece of work with them back on, which if that is the case he is not a $17+ chance.

All three career wins have come on this surface and while his second-up run was flat on paper, he sat on a hot speed where he is to be forgiving for dropping out late.

He is best ridden with cover, so from a wide gate, do not be shocked to see him settle back and look to launch late at a big price.
