2015 Pago Pago Stakes Betting Tips

This Saturday in Sydney a host of exciting two-year-olds get a final chance at a Golden Slipper bid seven days later back at Rosehill Gardens, including the colts and geldings facing off in the Pago Pago Stakes 2015.

Due to run as Rosehill Race 3 on Coolmore Classic Day at 1:35pm (AEDT), this year’s $175,000 Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) field features nine boys in total including a debutant in Intrusion.

Heading the current Pago Pago Stakes betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au at $3.20, out from $3.50, is Inner Circle jumping from a nice barrier two draw with the in-form James McDonald riding.

John O’Shea’s Street Cry colt debuted last start on February 25 at Rosehill over 1100m and enjoyed an impressive one and three-quarter length victory with McDonald aboard from the inside alley.

Same hoop here, comparable barrier and the extra distance looks a non-issue as he steps up in class looking to earn the ballot free ride in the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) on March 21.

He is followed closely in the Pago Pago Stakes odds by Peter & Paul Snowden’s Duporth colt Paceman ($3.80) out to atone for a disappointing sixth to Headwater in the Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m) last month.

So will the top two battling for favouritism run the Pago Pago Stakes quinella or is there value to be found tipping an upset from the likes of Odyssey Moon ($9) on the rails or the Chris Waller-trained Vanbrugh ($8.50) who made a nice impression on debut at Randwick over the distance on February 18.


#1 Odyssey Moon ($9)

Value in the market is definitely in barrier one with the Rodney Northam-trained Snitzel colt Odyssey Moon having his fourth career start. Inglis Nursery winner on debut at Randwick in December, ran fourth in the Inglis Classic and then was second past the post behind runaway winner Exosphere in the Group 2 Skyline Stakes (1200m) last start. Exosphere is now second favourite for the Slipper, form Odyssey Moon gets a chance to frank here with an inside draw and Tye Angland staying on.


#3 Inner Circle ($3.20)

Current favourite definitely has claims and barrier two helps the cause. McDonald retains the ride and is in top form, the duo having won over 1100m at the track last time out from barrier one. Likes an inside alley, did it by nearly two lengths last time out so deserves a crack at them here and then possibly the Slipper if impressive enough.


#6 Tarquin ($26)

Adding value to the top three, this nice looking Godolphin-owned Hard Spun colt won on debut at Newcastle on February 19 with James McDonald riding over 1300m. Down in distance so should be super sharp, looking over the odds with barrier four and William Buick coming on.
