Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes 2017

September 9, 2017

Ladbrokes Tip: The Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes is a nice lead-up for Cox Plate types each spring

The Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes is a Group 2 race held on a Saturday in early September at Moonee Valley Racecourse during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. A mile clash contested over 1600m under weight-for-age conditions, the Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes was run as the John F Fehan Stakes from 1984 – 2004 and now offers a total of $250,000 in prize money.

It is a nice spring starting point for gallopers targeting Australasia’s weight-for-age championship, the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) back at Moonee Valley in late October.

The last Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes winner to go on and take out the Cox Plate was El Segundo (2007). Dual Cox Plate winners Fields Of Omagh (2002), Northerly (2001) and the mighty New Zealand-trained mare Sunline (2000) also all have their name on the Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes winners’ list.

Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes Field

The Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes field features a classy line-up of weight-for-age, Cox Plate hopes.

Many are kicking off their spring campaigns in the mile clash and are heading towards tougher spring assignments including the Group 1 Underwood Stakes (1800m) three weeks later at Caulfield Racecourse and the Cox Plate. In 2015 Mourinho finished sixth in the Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes, a race he was second to the previous year, before winning the Underwood Stakes next start. The 2014 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes third placed Foreteller also won the Underwood next time out.

One lead-up into the Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes field is the Group 2 PB Lawrence Stakes (1400m) run at Caulfield in mid-August. In 2015 The Cleaner ran second in the PB Lawrence before successfully defending his Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes title having won the race in 2014.

Another possible lead-up run into the Group 2 is the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield in late August, a race the 2013 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes winner Fiorente ran sixth in first-up. Fiorente went on to place third in that year’s Cox Plate before his victory in the iconic Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington on the first Tuesday of November.

In 2012 Happy Trails ran second in the Memsie Stakes before his Dato’ win. Three starts later he took out the Group 1 Emirates Stakes (1600m) at Flemington during the Melbourne Cup Carnival. Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes nominations close the Monday before the race runs on the Saturday with the final field and barrier draw released on the Wednesday.
