Pago Pago Stakes 2012 – Preview and Tips

Tomorrow’s 2012 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens stands as a crucial race for those horses still chasing qualification in next week’s prized two-year-old race, the Golden Slipper.

Ten talented colts and geldings will line up in tomorrow’s Group 2 $175,000 race with the winner set to receive exemption from the ballot for the $3.5 million Golden Slipper.

Ahead of tomorrow’s Pago Pago Stakes, we at Races.com.au have done the hard work for you. We’ve poured over the form, analysed the odds and have come up with our exclusive tips for the last of the male-only Slipper qualifiers.

The Winner

It is impossible to look past the odds-on $1.45 bookmaker.com.au favourite All Too Hard. A half brother of wonder mare Black Caviar, the lighting fast colt has been tremendously impressive in his two career starts to date.

He opened his career on February 18 with a win in the Listed Talindert Stakes before going on to blow the field away with a four-length victory in the Group 2 VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes.

He currently sits as a second-favourite in the bookmaker.com.au market for the Golden Slipper but may not run, with his training team electing to wait until after Saturday before making a decision.

The Placings

The market suggests only one horse can come close to the much-hyped All Too Hard and that is Kevin Moses trained colt Collect ($4.80).

The Races.com.au team don’t believe he will challenge All Too Hard for victory tomorrow but he has the form on the board to confidently be backed to finish runner-up.

A son of Fastnet Rock, Collect finished fourth on debut in the Silver Slipper before improving to run third in the Group 3 Skyline Stakes at Randwick on March 17.

Big value can be found with the Races.com.au tip for third, with Commands colt Limes currently paying $31.00 to take victory.

The Peter Snowden trained horse has only had one start in 2012 but showed plenty of promise when finishing fourth behind Collect in the Skyline Stakes.

The Roughie

Tim Martin trained colt Le Cap will be on debut at a metropolitan track tomorrow but in his only start to date he ran impressively to win the James Boag Handicap at Gosford on March 14.

Le Cap will be ridden by experienced jockey Corey Brown and with a favourable barrier five draw, his $26.00 bookmaker.com.au price provides excellent value for the punters.

The markets are now open for all the bumper Rosehill racing action tomorrow so head to bookmaker.com.au to back your winners!
