Having returning to racing in exceptional form this time in, Star Rolling has opened as and maintained status as outright favourite in Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes betting markets, currently available at generous $4.40 odds ahead of The Cleaner ($4.80), Foreteller ($6.50) and Lidari ($7) at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Will Star Rolling justify favouritism and win the 2014 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes, or will one of his talented rivals find the line in the clear?

1st

Foreteller ($6.50)

Securing an impressive record of ten race wins and six minor places from 43 competitive starts so far, Foreteller has seemingly returned to racing in typically strong form this season and offers punters exceptional value of $6.50 odds for success in the 2014 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes. A proven performer over distance having taken out the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes over a mile during the 2013 Spring Racing Carnival, the Dansili gelding was unlucky not to secure another race win over five starts through autumn but continued to impress; finishing fourth in the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) and third in the Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) most notably. While charged with overcoming the outside barrier, Foreteller is likely to settle in ideal position off the pace and is more than worth consideration at current odds.

2nd

Star Rolling ($4.40)

A notable performer over four autumn starts, Star Rolling has returned to racing in exceptional form this season and is an excellent chance of justifying his Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes favourite’s tag from the ideal barrier 4. Returning for a credible fifth in the Listed John Dillon Stakes (1400m) on January 25th, the Casino Prince gelding was unlucky to finish in the places in both the Group 3 Carlyon Cup (1600m) and Group 2 Peter Young Stakes (1800m) on February 22nd, and returned to the paddock after failing to beat a single runner home in the Australian Cup. Charging home to win the Group 2 PB Lawrence Stakes (1400m) first-up on August 16th, Star Rolling will again be partnered by jockey Stephen Baster and is a great chance of success in the Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes.

3rd

Foundry ($9.50)

Begging his career under the guidance of leading Irish trainer Aidan O’Brien before transferring to Macedon Lodge at the conclusion of 2013, talented runner Foundry arguably offers punters the best value in Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes betting markets for success at current $9.50 odds to win, or $3.10 to run a place. Winning his racing debut in November 2012, the Galileo entire completed arguably his most impressive run to date when second to renowned stayer Telescope in the Group 2 Great Voltigeur Stakes (2414m) on August 21st 2013 before placing a strong fifth in the Group 1 Ladbrokes St Leger (2937m) on September 14th. Winning his maiden Australian race before finishing second in the Group 2 Blamey Stakes (1600m) on March 9th, Foundry will relish the running distance of the Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes and offers punters great odds for success.
