Daily Racing Tips – Thursday 12th May


Pakenham - Race 3 6:15pm AEDT

No. 10 Bahama

Bahama is a five-start maiden that debuted just over a year ago in the Kindergarten Stakes at Randwick. 

She resumed from a freshen-up to run third over the track and distance a few weeks ago where she seemed to over-race in the early stages before finishing off strongly. 

Jye Mcneil takes over the reins now, and providing she settles in the run, she should be finishing strongly. 

Pakenham - Race 5 7:15pm AEDT

No. 11 Pouvoir De Soie

Really tricky race, but I do like the look of Pouvoir De Soie ahead of her fourth start. 

Lloyd Kennewell’s mare hasn’t missed the money in all three runs so far, winning first-up at Ballarat by half a length before scoring again here over the track and distance a fortnight ago. 

This is tougher, but she’s drawn to get a similar run in transit from the low draw and she does have some wet track form to her name.

Pakenham - Race 6 7:45pm AEDT

No. 11 Meltdown

Not a bad race for Meltdown second-up. 

The daughter of Showcasing ran well fresh over 1200m a few weeks ago where she was seen doing her best work late after getting away slowly. 

She’s been a good wet track horse throughout her career and I think she’ll get back and time her run from the wide gate with the claim put to good use. 

Pakenham - Race 7 8:15pm AEDT

No. 4 Wisaka

Confident Wisaka can run a nice race here at odds. 

The Tavistock four-year-old has a win and a place to his name first-up and probably deserved to win at this stage of his prep at Sandown back in December. 

He’s had only one go on rain-affected going where he finished second on a Heavy 8 at Cranbourne early in his career. He’ll probably be looking for further, but with the rails run, he’ll go close.
