Ben and JD Hayes expecting Sandown scratching to benefit promising Pammy Joy at Caulfield on Saturday

A dreadful barrier draw on Wednesday could lead to a Saturday win for Pammy Joy at Caulfield.

Trainers Ben and JD Hayes scratched Pammy Joy from a race at Sandown on Wednesday to wait for Saturday after the filly drew barrier 18 for a $50,000 race.

Now Pammy Joy is a $9 chance to win the $150,000 VOBIS Gold Ingot (1400m) from barrier eight.

Pammy Joy is one of only four horses in the 12-horse field to have won a race, breaking her maiden status after a tough run in heavy ground at Echuca.

Ben Hayes said Pammy Joy came through her maiden win in terrific order, making Saturday’s assignment a winnable race.

“She’s really done well out of her win at Echuca and she handles wet tracks,” he said.

“It could be a good race for her.”

Damien Oliver will take over from Caulfield Cup-winning jockey Cory Parish on Pammy Joy on Saturday.

The Nicconi filly has firmed from $10 into $9 in TAB’s early betting on the VOBIS Gold Ingot.

The Mick Price and Michael Kent Jr-trained Sunfall tops the betting at $3.40.
