Racing Tips – Thursday Best Bets for Pakenham

Pakenham hosts a night meeting on Thursday with eight races commencing at 5.45pm. The track will be rated good.

Best Bet

8. Marion Street
Pakenham R8 (9.15pm)

Ben Melham comes to Pakenham for one ride tonight and it’s easy to see why he was keen to stick with this mare who has been so impressive in her three career starts, most recently a dominant maiden win at Sale back in July. She has been jumping out nicely at home for this and strikes a winnable race.

Recommended Price: $3.60
Confidence Level: 4/5

2. Pride of Proisir
Pakenham R2 (6.15pm)

Pride of Proisir is knocking on the door to win a race and gets his chance here. The gelding has placed at his last two runs including a close up second at Benalla last time out. He should roll forward from the low draw and get an ideal run, this is far from the strongest maiden either.

Recommended Price: $6.00
Confidence Level: 3/5

3. Cours Vite
Pakenham R3 (6.45pm)

Ex-Queensland galloper Cours Vite looks over the odds here. He did enough first up at Sale, working to the line solidly, and should strip fitter for that effort. The gelding also gets the blinkers back on, which should assist to. Strong each way bet.

Recommended Price: $10
Confidence Level: 3/5

4. Dubai Moon
Pakenham R5 (7.45pm)

Stayer Dubai Moon has struck a rich vein of form of late, posting back to back wins on consecutive days last week, scoring by eight lengths at Hanging Rock on Friday before getting off the canvas to win at Moe on Saturday. Five days between runs is a relative luxury and he should prove very hard to beat again.

Recommended Price: $3.50
Confidence Level: 4/5
