Raceday focus: Best best, preview for Pakenham

Form analyst Gilbert Gardiner runs his eye over the Thursday night card at Pakenham.

BEST BET

DESIGNS (R5 No.7 – $3.40

The Vancouver filly looked above average winning first-up at Pakenham after a break. Expect her to go on with the job now and Jamie Kah sticks.

NEXT BEST

MARCOLT (R4 No.5 – $3.80)

Savaged the line on debut at Echuca to grab third despite settling near last over 1300m. Extra trip looks ideal and Luke Currie booked.

DEEP DIVE (R8 No.3 – $3.60)

Hard fit third up and ready to win. Drawn perfectly and three times a winner at 1200m.

VALUE BET

OUR GUARDIAN ANGEL (R6 No.10 – $11)

Placed twice at the track and has won third up previously. Ran last behind the smart Annavisto two starts back but improved out of sight, just missing out last time at big odds. Drawn well and drops five kilograms.

THE JOCKEY: LUKE CURRIE

The star jockey boasts a strong book of rides at the night meeting.

SUFFRAGETTE (R1 No.8 – $4.60), THINK WINNING (R3 No.5 – $4.60), MARCOLT (R4 No.5 – $3.80), NIGHTFIRE (R5 No.4 – $3.40), CUBAN STATE (R6 No.1 – $2.80), IL DIVO (R7 No.6 – $6.50) and RULER BY CHOICE (R8 No.5 – $3.30).
