UBET Preview – Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes

The Spring Stars continue their return to the races at Moonee Valley on Saturday with a pair of Group 2 events boasting strong fields.

Odds powered by UBET.

The nine race program at Moonee Valley on Saturday is spearheaded by the Group 2 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m).


In a field where a majority of runners will be eyeing off one of the spring majors in the form of a Caulfield Cup, Cox Plate and Melbourne Cup, He’s Our Rokkii appears set to capitalise.

He’s Our Rokkii ran fourth on resuming in a strong P.B. Lawrence Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield three weeks ago, behind the likes of Group 1 winners Hartnell Horseform and Black Heart Bart Horseform.

With a fitness edge over most in Saturday’s Moonee Valley feature event, He’s Our Rokkii has been installed as a $3.40 favourite.

A three time winner over the mile, success on Saturday would provide trainer David Hayes his first Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes in partnership with Tom Dabernig and son Ben Hayes after winning the 2008 renewal with Guillotine.

The Darren Weir-trained Star Exhibit also comes out of the P.B. Lawrence Stakes and is presently a $6.50 second elect.

New Zealand mares Lizzie L’amour and Bonneval Horseform also possess each way appeal, each resuming off strong autumn campaigns.

The first of four black type events on the card is the Group 2 McEwen Stakes (1000m).

A small but select field of sprinters has been assembled where speedy filly Houtzen Horseform holds favouritism.

Despite carrying only 50kg, the Queensland-trained filly has quite an ask ahead of her to beat older, proven Group 1 horses in the form of Russian Revolution Horseform, Hellbent Horseform, Supido Horseform and Heatherly Horseform.

The McEwen Stakes is the start of Houtzen’s spring campaign which has the ultimate goal of The Everest at Randwick on October 14.

The fillies commence the quaddie with a capacity field contesting the Listed Atlantic Jewel Stakes (1200m).

The unbeaten Shoals Horseform will look to maintain that record on resuming and has been installed as a $3.80 favourite.

She can expect strong opposition from first up winner Roomooz Horseform who is drawn to enjoy a cosy run in transit and also Limestone Horseform.

The Waterhouse-Bott-trained filly Sheikha Horseform profiles as a value player in her Melbourne debut, presently quoted at $41.

The Bendigo Bank Stakes (1200m) sees Brave Smash Horseform as a short priced favourite to take out the event after a strong Australian debut where he finished second behind subsequent Memsie Stakes winner Vega Magic Horseform three weeks ago.

Brave Smash produced a head turning display and appears well suited on Saturday with added fitness under his belt.

Second favourite Oak Door Horseform and the Group 1 placed Keen Array Horseform shape as the pick of his opposition.

R8 MOONEE VALLEY 9 September 2017
Dato' Tan Chin Nam Stakes , 1600m
Race Synopsis: Bonneval continued on from her super autumn with an excellent fresh-up win here, displaying her typically strong finish yet again. She began well but at the 1000m was third last, one out, yet rider Damian Lane sat unhurried and lost another place past the 800m. Giving the leaders about six lengths, they moved out approaching the last corner and before straightening were widest but gathering them in. Short of the straight they were now fourth and travelling well, levelled up at the 200m and surged to the lead. Lane gave her a reminder or two at the 100m and she kept on strongly to the line, her fifth win in succession and sixth from nine starts. Abbey Marie also put up a top performance, last on the inner down the side, got on to Bonneval's back into the straight and finished very well for second, trying hard all the way. The first two were well clear of Rhythm To Spare who was second turning in, passed, then held on best of the rest for a distant third from Jacquinot Bay, who was hard ridden in third turning in and stayed on fairly for fourth. Favourite Star Exhibit reared at the start and lost the rider, Mark Zahra.
