Australian Racing: Thin Red Line to hold at Pakenham

There are just the two meetings taking place on Tuesday with Taree in New South Wales and Pakenham Synthetic in Victoria due to host the action.

Race 6 Taree

Miss Shalaa @ 4.00

Race 8 Taree

Cluny Road @ 6.00

Race 4 Pakenham Synthetic

Thin Red Line @ 2.80

Shalaa won't Miss at Taree

The sixth race at Taree is the Kristylea Bridge Charity Cup, a 1600m Benchmark 58 handicap set to take place on a good 4 track.

Pippen is expected to have his supporters following a one-and-a-half-length victory in a Benchmark 50 handicap over 1600m at Tuncurry a month ago.

That contest saw the gelding come from mid-division to deliver a one-and-a-half-length victory, having previously finished fourth over 1200m at Tamworth the previous month.

That Tamworth effort came at this Benchmark 58 level and switched back to good going here, MISS SHALAA is preferred.

The daughter of Shalaa showed up well in her last spell, including when beaten half a length into second in a 1600m maiden at Tamworth in December.

The filly raced on a good 4 surface at Tamworth and broke her maiden dropped to 1412m on a soft 5 surface at this track when racing first up this time around.

The 4.00 selection followed that triumph up with a narrow defeat in a Class 1 handicap over 1600m at Gosford, while the heavy 10 track was possibly too soft when disappointing at Tamworth last time.

The return to a sound surface is in the selection's favour and she is taken to provide trainer Jason Deamer with a winner.

Road leads to Taree triumph

The concluding race at Taree is a 1000m Benchmark 58 handicap event, with October Revolution expected to start as favourite.

Zac Wadick’s mount has won at this venue in the past and has generally been in good form this spell, winning twice since registering a narrow margin victory in a 1250m maiden here in May.

The most recent of those victories saw the gelding battle to a head triumph in a 1000m Benchmark 58 handicap at Port Macquarie at the end of May.

A good second over around the same distance followed, prior to a down-the-field effort when never involved at Grafton.

While he is expected to put that Grafton disappointment behind him, CLUNY ROAD is selected to deliver a victory here.

The pick showed good form when registering a two-and-a-half-length victory in a Class 1 1000m handicap at Gunnedah last month.

The 6.00 gelding had previously finished behind a subsequent winner in Villa Treville when contesting a Benchmark 58 handicap at this circuit.

Jockey Madeline Owen gets on well with the selection, having won twice on him and, jumping from next to the rail, Cluny Road looks up to scoring for handler Todd Howlett.

Line likely to break maiden

Trainer John Sadler is represented by THIN RED LINE in the fourth race on the Pakenham Synthetic card.

The 2.80 selection contests the 1800m maiden event having made just the one previous start, with that effort coming when two-and-a-half-lengths fourth in an 1800m handicap at Flemington last month.

The son of Highland Reel defied his inexperience to finish strongly, having been ridden from off the pace on that occasion, and with a wide alley here similar tactics look likely.

That Flemington effort marked a highly promising debut, with the pick faring well in a contest that saw the first two home race close to or just behind the speed.

Thin Red Line is expected to have improved for that experience and he is selected to salute under Matthew Cartwright.
