Pakenham horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (12:25) Ladbroke It Maiden Plate (1200m)
#5 – Our John Boy @ $1.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Our John Boy was upset as the odds-on favorite on debut at Kilmore but punters should stick with him.
The four-year-old son of Star Witness will only improve with the run and although punters have to take short odds again, he is worth backing.
Punters should expect him to go one better than his debut effort.
Race 2. (13:00) Ladbrokes Bet Ticker Maiden (1000m)
#1 – Golden Monkey @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Golden Monkey wasn’t too far away in a recent trial at Cranbourne and this stable gets them firing early.
The Clayton Douglas-trained two-year-old gets the services of Jamie Kah and he jumps off the inside barrier, so he won’t have to do much work.
He opened at $8, so there has been solid betting support.
Race 3. (13:35) Ladbrokes Punter Assist Maiden (1400m)
#5 – Next Step Berrima @ $2.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Next Step Berrima didn’t do much wrong on debut when finishing third at Geelong and he should be better for the run.
The Shea Eden-trained son of Al Maher was only a length behind the winner and it followed a good trial placing at Hawkesbury.
He has been heavily backed to score and that’s a leading sign.
Race 4. (14:10) Ladbrokes Cash In BM70 (2200m)
#4 – Think Champayne @ $3.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
It could pay to stick with Think Champayne, which got the job done at Stawell last time out.
The Maher/Eustace-trained scored by a half-length over 2400m and although the drop in distance isn’t ideal, he drops in weight after carrying 63kg.
It’s not the easiest field but punters value odds.
Race 5. (14:45) Ladbrokes Easy Form BM64 (1200m)
#4 – Reciprocation @ $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
A steady flow of money has come for the favourite following a debut win at Benalla. The three-year-old won by 1.3 lengths before being spelled immediately.
That is often a good sign and after opening at $3.50, his odds have been slammed into $2.50. That is a sizable move and he will likely start much shorter on race day.
It could pay to follow betting moves closely.
Race 6. (15:20) Ladbrokes Split Multi BM78 (1000m)
#4 – All of Brighton @ $2.35 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Patrick Payne lines up the three-year-old gelding that comes off a fourth at Caulfield and that’s strong form for a midweek race.
He was only 2.9 lengths behind Curran and prior to that he finished a close second behind Minhaaj, so we’re surprised he’s not the odds-on favourite.
He could start much shorter on race day, so we recommend taking the current odds.
Race 7. (15:55) Ladbrokes Blended Multi BM70 (1400m)
#2 – Kurabui @ $2 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Kurabui won both starts during her first campaign and the four-year-old is every chance of remaining unbeaten on Wednesday.
The four-year-old mare scored wins at Pakenham and Caulfield, with the latter coming against a tough field over 1600m.
Kicking off at 1400m holds no fears and the $2 is a fair price given her potential to rise through the grades.
Race 8. (16:30) Ladbrokes Same Race Multi C1 (1400m)
#1 – Bermadez @ $1.65 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Bermadez is a Mike Moroney-trained gelding that had plenty of betting support on debut and he won with a leg in the air.
The son of Tavistock won by 5.3 lengths and punters have been patiently waiting for his return. He hasn’t been missed in the market, but that’s not surprising.
Barrier 14 is the only negative, but he looks to have the class edge on this field.
