Pakenham Pearlers: Pakenham – 7th December 2019

Once more we stray from the metro area for another Saturday race meeting and this time it’s the Pakenham Cup card.

The David Bourke Memorial features a few horses who are early in their campaigns and it is the right race for More Than Exceed to strike while hard fit.

He has been freshened up after running in a race a bit too hard during Cup week and he never came into that race up the straight.

But the More Than Ready gelding gets to race on his home track and his previous form in Adelaide was excellent, winning multiple times.

He'll sit much further forward in this event than he did at Flemington and prove a tough nut to crack.

Let's have a swing at the Cup for our value play and Chapada has been asked to bite off a lot more than he could chew in his career, running in multiples classics and running well in many of them too.

He gets to drop back from a solid WFA test in the Zipping Classic when not far from a very decent European winner at the end.

Now fifth up he's peaking out to the 2500m and his best sees him well set up with 55.5kg.

Plenty of these have had long Spring campaigns but he's ready to fire now and we can back him both totes.
