Paceman was disappointing when failing to fire in the Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m) last time out, but is offered an exceptional chance of success in the 2015 Pago Pago Stakes despite drawing the wide barrier 9.

Debuting with an impressive win over talented company in the Appin Plate (1100m) on November 15th, Paceman received huge support in the final 24 hours of Pago Pago Stakes betting but was unable to handle the late pace of Headwater; beating just one runner home.

Odyssey Moon ran on for a credible second in the Group 2 Skyline Stakes (1200m) last time out, and is a great chance of going one better in the 2015 Pago Pago Stakes from barrier 1.

Taking out the Inglis Nursery (1000m) with ease on debut, Odyssey Moon returned to racing for fourth in the Inglis Classic (1200m) leading into his Skyline Stakes second.

Inner Circle (barrier 2), Raphael’s Cat (barrier 3), Vanbrugh (barrier 7) and Tarquin (barrier 4) have each only contested one competitive start to date, but will be aiming to continue their perfect career starts after each hitting the line in the clear in their respective events.

One of the several classy two-year-olds currently in work for Godolphin Australia, Inner Circle never appeared in doubt in the Mossman @ Vinery Plate (1100m) on February 25th; leading from start to finish and hitting the line two lengths in the green.

Likely to receive the run of the race from barrier 2, the son of Street Cry will be partnered by leading jockey James McDonald.

Performing well in two Rosehill barrier trials prior to his competitive debut, Vanbrugh was unlucky to be checked early in the ATC Employee Long Service Maiden (1200m) on February 18th, but displayed an exceptional turn of foot late to hit the line a nose ahead of Chamarel.

Rageese (barrier 8), Arsonist (barrier 5) and Intrusion (barrier 6) completed the 2015 Pago Pago Stakes final field.
