Pakenham  R1  #4   ZOUGAZEM $2.05

This son of Zoustar has jumped out twice at Flemington, this preparation. The first jump-out he found himself in a forward position and matched motors with Lunasit all the way. Lunasit is already a winner at Werribee at the end of last year. Another runner that has won a maiden, Friday Funday was under a bit of riding late to keep up. The most recent jump-out he was up against some classy horses. Somals set the pace and proved a bit too quick but this guy was not far behind and went over the line with Holbien, a galloper that is very competitive in listed grade when in form. #3 SANBUCK will be in the finish, has the best figures of the raced brigade. #6 JENNI BAD CAT has trialled well behind Pouting Lips, will win races. Exotic players, Tri & F4 – 4/2,3,6,9,11. – 3,4,6/2,3,4,6,9,11.

Pakenham  R4  #5    MOYASSAR $2.35

I was taken by his trial at Benalla when 2nd to Mount Mitty. At the time I thought Mount Mitty had been going very well at the jump-outs and subsequently won at Kyneton carrying a big weight. Patrick Payne’s galloper, Does It, was under heavy riding behind and has since broke his maiden status. The debut run at Sandown Lakeside was a pass mark, nothing seemed to make much ground from the back, and he was near last when turning for home. He will strip fitter for this and looks a big chance to breakthrough. #10 DOUBLE DELIGHT looked to have some ability early days at the jump-outs and would not shock to see her run a place at odds.

Wyong R1  #2   TIMON STINGER $6.60

I thought this guy was a huge chance on debut. He had really caught my eye in a few trials, and I was keen to back him. The money started rolling in and he ended up jumping $2, giving me confidence, he was expected to run well. That was the end of the positives, he sat on speed but was gone early in the straight and ended up dropping out to finish last. I am forgiving that run because heat stress was noted by the stewards and he has returned with a decent trial since having a 19-week spell.


Pakenham  R2  #3  NOBLE CLASS $67.00

I tipped this guy last start when he was on debut at Pakenham. He did not show much there but I would be rather forgiving as he may not have handled the Heavy track. He did trial well against winners leading into that debut and prepared to give him another chance at big odds.  Hardest to beat #9 Quesadilla and would not shock to see #11 Tsunami Army and #5 Be Brilliant run a drum, include in your exotics.
