Pinch River Tops 2014 Hampden Stakes Field

Rob Heathcote’s locally-trained two-year-old Pinch River heads a promising field of fellow juveniles in the Stradbroke Handicap Day opener at Eagle Farm on Saturday wearing the number one saddlecloth in the Hampden Stakes 2014.

The first of nine races on the program, this year’s $100,000 Listed Ambassador Travel Hampden Stakes (1200m) kicks things off at 11:30am and features a final field of 11 hopefuls.

Of those there are four coming off a last start win including Heathcote’s Denman gelding Pinch River in barrier eight with Damian Browne riding.

Browne was aboard the up-and-comer for their last start when bouncing back from a 13th in January’s $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic on the Gold Coast to win the Listed Dalrello Stakes (1200m) at Doomben on May 17.

That was their third win from five career starts, their opening two victories being at Eagle Farm in November indicating they’ll appreciate their return to the track on Saturday.

Another top last start winner is then Trevor Bailey’s Gold Coast-trained filly Tales Of Fashion who also won a Brisbane Black-Type on BTC Cup Day with her victory in the Listed Lancaster Stakes (1200m).

That was the daughter of Tale Of The Cat’s first run since Australia Day when they raced in a 2YO Handicap over 1200m at Eagle Farm to finish just a long neck away second to No Problem.

Lancaster runner-up Freezethemillions meanwhile is also accepted for the Hampden Stakes.

Matthew Dunn’s Murwillumbah-based Freeze filly was last seen running a brave fourth behind Time For War and Brazen Beau, who both run in the Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) on Saturday, in the Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1350m) on May 24.

Other notable Hampden hopes then include Gillian Heinrich’s last start Ipswich winning filly Storming Pleasure, the lightly-raced Rich Reward out to break their maiden status at start number three here and the Gai Waterhouse-trained Sports Edition.

A Tommy Berry mount in barrier nine, nicely-bred Northern Meteor colt Sports Edition has had just the one run to date at Randwick two Saturdays ago.

There they finished a distant second behind stablemate Almalad, form Waterhouse rates having accepted for the winner in the 2014 JJ Atkins on Saturday for their share of the $500,000 in prize money.

The full Hampden Stakes 2014 field, barriers and jockeys are detailed below.
