Pakenham Tips 28/10/2022


Race 4 No. 11 LIGHTNING FLASH- ($2.70)

LIGHTNING FLASH should be hard to beat in Race 4 of the day at Pakenham. She flashed home late when making her debut on the Pakenham Synthetic on October 3 over the 1200m before heading to Mornington and finishing runner-up behind Sweet ‘N’ Spicy, putting a four length gap on the rest. Step up to the 1400m looks ideal and look for her to run over the top of them. 



Race 1 No. 5 HIGHLAND GIRL ($4.20)

HIGHLAND GIRL can chalk up her first win when she steps out in the opener at Pakenham. The Matt Laurie-trained galloper has had the three career starts for two minor placings and bumped into a smart horse in the form of Pretty Tavi two starts ago when runner-up at Mornington over the 1200m before finishing 4th at that venue behind Get Up Girl when attempting to lead all the way. This looks easier and she is the one to run down.
