When Thursday, April 28, 2022
First Race 5:45pm AEST

An engaging eight-race program at Pakenham awaits punters this Thursday night. The first four races on the card are maidens, with the quaddie starting at race five at 7:45pm. The last of eight commences at 9:15pm with 13 runners participating, with many of them in-form horses.


This Grahame Begg-trained galloper failed first up at Caulfield, but we will forgive that run. His efforts prior in stronger races were solid when he was a winner at Sandown Hillside, before running a good fourth at Mornington. Jordan Childs is back on board and he did get the win on him at Sandown, so he knows what the horse needs to do. He just got too far back last time, which made it hard to get into the race. From a good barrier in four that shouldn’t be the case here, and Childs should have him pressing to the line from the 400m mark. Despite carrying a hefty weight of 60kg, he is down in class and the one to beat.

Barrier one will help Ampere in this event and we expect that he should position up in the first few, preferably behind the leader. He started favourite when second here on debut and Mick Kent would have put the polish on him to go close again. The rise in distance to 1400m shouldn’t be a factor, and with many of her rivals failing to place in their first few starts, this looks to be a suitable race. Ethan Brown gets the ride and shouldnt have any real issue positioning up nicely as long as Ampere jumps with them. Stavanager for the in-form stable of Team Hawkes will be a competitive rival, as will Jolie Christine from the Begg yard.

Race 3 – Ampere#1 Ampere

4yo Mare | T: Mick Kent | J: Ethan Brown (58kg)

Leon & Troy Corstens combine with this grey gelding who is second up from a short freshen up. Last time he was second up from a similar freshen up he got the money at Yarra Valley. Last start at Echuca over 1400m he was fair to the line but we are counting on the fact that he normally needs a tune up before hitting his straps second up. He’s an on-pace runner and we expect he will settle close again from barrier six. He won’t be huge odds, but with quite a few live chances we still think he will be overs.

Best Value

Race 8 – Alfoil#3 Alfoil
