Hampden Stakes 2012 – Betting Tips

The Brisbane Winter Carnival kicks off at Doomben Racecourse this weekend and a key part of the bumper eight-race card is the Listed $100,000 2012 Hampden Stakes (1200m).

Run as the third race on the Doomben Card, the Hampden Stakes allows a strong field of two-year-olds to press their claims ahead of the Group 1 TJ Smith which will take place at Eagle Farm on June 9.

Current favourite to take out top honours is debut winner Better Than Ready ($2.80 – bookmaker.com.au) with the next best Magic Millions runner Hoss Amor who is currently at $3.80.

Behind the top two favourites there is a gap in the betting market with last-start winner Boban paying $6.50 and Manawatu Sires’ Produce Stakes winner Choice Bro at $7.50.

You may not have had much of a chance to see these juveniles race but don’t worry as the Races.com.au team has been hard at work analysing the form to bring you our best tips.

The Winner

#4 Better Than Ready ($2.80)

The Kelly Schewida-trained favourite is too hard to overlook here. He ended up starting as favourite on debut following a betting plunge that saw him backed in from over $20.00 and he justified that with a 1.3 length win.

A son of More Than Ready, the two-year-old got out of the gates sluggishly but showed tremendous acceleration at the back end of the race to gallop away for a convincing victory.

A favourable barrier four draw sets him up nicely to build on his debut and finish this race at the front of the field.

The Placings

#10 Hoss Amor ($3.30) and #1 Choice Bro ($7.50)

Hoss Amor may not have raced since January but the John O’Shea-trained filly has plenty of raw ability.

She backed up her debut win with a seventh-place finish in a quality Magic Millions field and will benefit from the services of boom Kiwi jockey James McDonald who has been in sensational form this year.

Choice Bro already has a Group 1 win to his name with the Manawatu Sires’ Produce Stakes and it was no one-off fluke for the son of Choisir.

The John Sargent-trained colt has just six starts to his name but has an excellent winning rate of 50 per cent.

The only question will be how he handled the trip across the Tasman as it will be his first race on Australian soil.

The Roughie

#26 Dansonate ($26.00)

A far better colt than the odds he is being offered at. This son of Snippetson has two wins from nine starts and ran third to Better Than Ready in the colt’s debut race last month.

He backed that up last weekend when running third to a red-hot Sizzling on the Gold Coast in the Ken Russell Memorial Classic so do not be surprised if he hits the line hard and challenges the favourites tomorrow.
