Will Contributer return to competition in the best way possible on Saturday or will one of his talented rivals post an upset in the Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes?

1st

Contributer ($1.80)

Finishing outside the first three only a couple of times in fourteen career starts, Contributer is undoubtedly the class horse of the 2015 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes field and should have no issues securing ballot-free entry into the 2015 Cox Plate this weekend. Returning this year for a comfortable win in the Group 2 Apollo Stakes (1400m), the High Chaparral entire broke through for a maiden win at the highest level in the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) before repeating the dose in the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) most recently on March 21st.

2nd

The Cleaner ($6.50)

Popular gelding The Cleaner charged home to win the 2014 edition of the Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes and offers great value for money in this year’s betting markets after returning to racing in excellent form. Progressing to success in the Group 3 JRA Cup (2040m) before a credible ninth in the Cox Plate and third in the Group 1 Emirates Stakes (1600m) last spring, the son of Savoire Vivre was unlucky to be beaten by the bob of a head in the Group 2 PB Lawrence Stakes (1400m) first-up this time and should relish a step up to 1600m.

3rd

Dibayani ($13)

Hong Kong import Dibayani stamped his claims as one to watch when savaging the line for third in the PB Lawrence Stakes and offers great value for money in 2015 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes betting markets at current $13 odds for success or $3.20 to finish in the first three. A standout in Hong Kong, the Shamardal gelding finished in the places no fewer than three times in major Group 1 feature races through a standout 2014 campaign.
