|Where||Sale Turf Club – 1227 Maffra-Sale Rd, Sale VIC 3850|
|When||Wednesday, May 25, 2022|
|First Race||12:25pm AEST|
Sale is home to an eight-race program on Wednesday, kicking off at 12:25pm AEST. Without much rain about, gallopers are predicted to be racing on a Good 4 surface. Race five starts the first leg of the quaddie at 2:45pm, while the last race is at 4:25pm. The first four races of the afternoon are maiden encounters which look tricky for punters, yet our best bet of the day comes up in the fourth.
Pakenham Best Bet: French War
Jordan Childs is on our next best too so we are hoping he has a good day as he hops aboard French War for Mick Price & Michael Kent Jnr. The four-year-old gelding comes back to Sale after winning here two weeks ago when running home really well over the last 500 metres. He kept going when he passed them too, winning by 2.2 lengths in the end, which says he is on song and rock-hard fit. He stays over 2200m, which should be no problem at all, and barrier six should see him position up nicely.
Race 8 – #2 French War (6)
4yo Gelding | T: Mick Price & Michael Kent Jnr | J: Jordan Childs (61kg)
Pakenham Value Bet: Gymnastics
This James Cummings-trained horse ran home very nicely last time at Bendigo, and we think he’s ready to salute. He was 20-1 on that occasion and was also our value bet, and he gave us a run for our money when he had the fastest final 200m. He does lose Damien Oliver this time but gets another Melbourne Cup-winning jockey in Jye McNeil. If the pace is on again, look for this one to be swooping late. Bold Hoi Ho for Patrick Payne will be hard to beat after winning on debut.
Race 5 – #10 Gymnastics (10)
3yo Filly | T: James Cummings | J: Jye McNeil (55kg)
