Pakenham Synthetic Tips for August 17


Lifestyle Meridian Maiden Plate Tips (Race 2)

Pakenham Synthetic Next Best Bet - Race 2 No. 10 He's The Ultimate

Schweppes BM58 Handicap Tips (Race 4)

Pakenham Synthetic Best Bet - Race 4 No. 2 Manhattan Sting

This gelding does not appreciate the Ballarat Synthetic surface like he does here at Pakenham, yet to miss a placing from four attempts, while his two Ballarat starts have been below par.

64kg is no easy feat, but Manhattan Sting gets a 1.5kg claim from Celine Gaudray and on a relative scale he is not that bad off, now carrying just 4.5kg more than the bottom weight.

Back to his right track and a trip that he won at three starts back, this looks his race on paper.

Pakenham Synthetic Value Bet - Race 8 No. 8 Frostin'

Forgive the first-up run at The Valley where he was back in an on-pace dominated race and day, but Frostin' did well to make up the little bit of ground that he did.

That was his first run back as a gelding, so we did not really get a guide on how well he has come back, but from what he showed at the back-end of last prep tells us that there is a motor under the bonnet.

The three-year-old may be able to settle a pair closer than usual due to the good gate and if Pakenham is not playing towards those horses on the pace, then he is the one I want to be with at the price.
