On Saturday Mark Kavanagh’s weight-for-age champion Whobegotyou claimed back-to-back wins in the Group 2 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley, causing the five-year-old to firm into the second favourite for the 2010 Cox Plate.
Jockey Michael Rodd gave Street Cry gelding Whobegotyou ($3.10) a patient ride in the 2010 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes, holding off until the final 600m before charging ahead of Typhoon Tracy on the home straight.
Whobegotyou found the line two lengths ahead of the Peter Moody-trained Typhoon Tracy ($4), while $2.70 favourite Shoot Out held on to finish a further length away in third.
