Risen From Doubt Headlines 2014 Pago Pago Stakes Nominations

A talented field of 17 two-year-old colts and geldings has nominated for this weekend’s Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens, ultimately chasing a ballot-free entry into the major Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) on March 5th.

Having debuted on track with a blistering turn of foot to claim the Listed Maribyrnong Stakes (1000m) on October 5th, trainer Tony McEvoy has elected to nominate Risen From Doubt for this weekend’s Pago Pago Stakes.

Returning to the track with a competitive third in the Group 2 Silver Slipper (1100m) on March 1st, the Not A Single Doubt colt was reasonably disappointing when fifth in the Group 2 Todman Stakes (1200m) last weekend, unable to match the late pace of eventual winner Ghibellines despite registering as clear market mover in betting fields leading up to the race.

Also included in nominations for the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) only one week later, McEvoy will use this weekend’s Pago Pago results set a final path for the talented two-year-old.

Trainer Gerald Ryan is poised to have twice the chance of success in the 2014 Pago Pago Stakes, having nominated exciting stable mates Klammer and Time For War.

Yet to finish outside the places in three race starts to date, Klammer debuted with an impressive third amongst classy company in the Adaptra Handicap (1000m) on February 8th before producing an impressive turn of foot to win the Lightning Ridge Plate (1000m) by a nose and finally finishing third in the Listed Black Opal Stakes (1200m) behind Lucky Raquie and fellow Pago Pago Stakes-nominee Mr Cha Cha last time out.

While only contesting the one race start to date, Time For War has quickly registered as a two-year-old to watch after comfortably jogging home to claim the CFMEU Mining & Energy Plate (1100m).

Having underlined the Sires’ Produce Stakes as the major target for the Snitzel colt this preparation, Ryan revealed only a win this weekend would see Time For War head to the Slipper.

Mr Cha Cha offers trainer Gai Waterhouse a legitimate chance of success in the 2014 Pago Pago Stakes, having produced an impressive record over three race starts so far.

Debuting with a near-two length victory in the NBN Cannonball Maiden (1000m) on January 23rd, Mr Cha Cha produced a strong turn of foot in the final straight of the Listed Canonbury Stakes (1100m) to finish second behind talented stable mate Fighting Sun before again displaying a keen sprint to finish second in the Black Opal.

With Fighting Sun on the sidelines after pulling up poorly following his Canonbury Stakes triumph, Mr Cha Cha is a possibility to find himself in Slipper contention, but will need to impress widely in this weekend’s Pago Pago Stakes if that is to come to fruition.

Having quickly built to the task since debuting with a somewhat forgettable fifth in the Ritz Cinema Handicap (1200m) on February 22nd, Mr Bogart currently rates as a leading contender for Sires’ Produce success, having run from the back of the field to finish an unlucky second in the Group 2 Skyline Stakes (1200m) only two weeks ago.

Trainer Anthony Cummings hold the Northern Meteor colt in high regards, and is confident of a carrying winning form into the Group 1 for two-year-olds on April 12th.

A final field of 16 and barrier draw for the 2014 Pago Pago Stakes is due for release on Wednesday morning.
