Pakenham-Synthetic Tips for May 20

Red Gem Packers & Growers 3YO Maiden Plate Tips (Race 1)

Pakenham-Synthetic Next Best Bet - Race 1 No. 7 Red Sista

The favourite in this race has gone under when well backed at his last two starts, having every chance to win, while this girl was good in defeat when not expected to feature on debut.

From the Ash & Amy Yargi stable, their horses tend to enjoy the synthetic ground, so it looks a positive sign when they bring one early on in their career here from a betting perspective.

Red Sista is a natural speed horse and will likely lead this field up which is the best spot to be on this track, and from gate one she will not have to spend a penny.

Daniel Moor is a great dictator of pace, so the right jockey goes in what seemingly looks this horses right race to break through.

Falcone & Adams BM64 Handicap Tips (Race 5)

Pakenham-Synthetic Best Bet Bet - Race 5 No. 2 Firstclass Dreamer

This galloper was great on his synthetic debut when backed off the map and only just missing on the line after holding a three length lead down the straight.

Firstclass Dreamer was out of form prior to that run, so the heavy support at his first start on tthis surface was a big sign that he was going to thrive in it.

The five-year-old now has his second start in what looks a slightly weaker race, so he looks to get every opportunity to dictate on the pace and look the winner again 100m from the line.

If he runs up to last starts efforts, he is the horse they need to beat clearly and the best bet on the program.

Shaweld Engineering BM64 Handicap Tips (Race 8)

Pakenham-Synthetic Value Bet - Race 8 No. 3 Dewhurst

This three-year-old may simply be a synthetic tracker, with two starts under the belt for a win on this track and a last on the turf track.

Trainer Archie Alexander has freshened this gelding up in preparation for the launch of the synthetic season where he is going to find this nice and dry ground.

Although it was not a strong race that he won on debut, it was a handy event that he was thrown into last start behind Tooradin and co.

I like that he has been saved for this surface rather than wasting runs in the mud, which gives him an each-way chance in the last.
