PAKENHAM R1 #3  COMETH THE HOUR $9.70

Couple of jump-outs under the belt and I thought the first one on turf was the best. Did respond with riding in the latest on synthetic and was joining Love Sensation after the winning post.

PAKENHAM R2 #12  MAYSHESTAR  $2.10 #5  PONY GRAM $7.10

Ran well on debut when running 2nd behind Norbu. The time was fast for a maiden race and with natural improvement should be hard to beat here. #5 PONY GRAM has looked okay in a few jump-outs. Finishing near the handy Portland Sky and Luna Flare in another one. #4 Magnita gets a couple of my dollars just in case she decides to run up to the ability I believe is there. Obviously, no star but I thought early days she could win a weak maiden.  

PAKENHAM R3 #8  BAT PAD $2.75

Should be hard to beat here on debut. Jumped out very well on a couple of occasions now. Looked good and strong late against some well performed gallopers, including Prophecies, Parmie, Harlem and Wedgetail. Most recently she looked to my eye to jump-out better than Aidensfield. A few dangers and including #12 UNIVERSAL LADY in exotics. Contested a couple of strong races and looks to have returned well from a spell. Should knock off a maiden soon. #5 INNOCENT GEM ran well first up and I think the winner is above average. Fitter here. #16 GIFTED MISS recently matched motors with Phoenix Global in a jump-out.

GRAFTON R2 #8  SAGACIOUS $2.05

Looked okay winning a recent trial. Had the ears pricked and was not tested. Stablemate Leshrac finished behind. #11 SAMINDI most recent trial, was given a quiet ride.

GRAFTON R4 #1  MANAGUA $2.15

Recent trial was good enough to be winning here. To my eye went better than Plonka and Alternative Facts.

TAMWORTH R1 #5 RUBIC HONOUR

Will be fitter 2nd up after a long lay off and this looks a bit easier. Should win.

TAMWORTH R2 #2 GARCON  #8 BOBBY’S GIFT

Showed a little bit of ability in the first Tamworth trial when finishing 2nd to Policy. Given time to mature and recent trial was okay. BOBBY’S GIFT was always well back on debut but still worked home okay late. Forgive.
