Miss Rose De Lago and The United States have been backed into $6 tied-favouritism in 2016 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes betting markets with Ladbrokes.com.au, ahead of Tosen Stardom ($6.50), Mahuta and Jameka; tied on the third line at generous $8 quotes.
Will Miss Rose De Lago post a second-consecutive Group 2 triumph, will The United States return to racing for success or will one of their many talented rivals claims an upset in the Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes?
Group 1 winner Jameka is positioned well to find a position off pace in the Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes and will be very tough to beat if she can muster a typically-strong turn of foot at the right time this afternoon. Returning to racing in autumn for fourth in the Group 3 The Vanity (1400m), Jameka progressed to fifth in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) and third in the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas (2000m) before a handy performance for second in the Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m) on Day 1 of The Championships. Having returned to the paddock after running fourth in the Group 1 Australian Oaks (2400m), the Myboycharlie mare is sure to have taken plenty of benefit from a first-up run for fourth in the Group 2 PB Lawrence Stakes (1400m) a fortnight ago.
The Cleaner ($13)
The Cleaner has won the two most recent editions of the Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes and while failing to fire in the PB Lawrence Stakes first-up, loves Moonee Valley and appears ready to atone this afternoon. Progressing to third in the Group 1 Underwood Stakes (1800m) and a credible seventh in the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) following his win in the Dato last year, the Savoire Vivre gelding will jump from barrier 11 with Steven Arnold aboard this afternoon, and is sure to inject typically break-neck speed into the race from the outset.
The United States ($6)
The United States will take benefit from his first-up run this afternoon, but undoubtedly has the class to figure in the finish of the Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes. A strong and consistent performer for Macedon Lodge throughout his entire racing career so far, The United States returned to racing in autumn for fifth in the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m); progressing to second in the Group 2 Blamey Stakes (1600m) before breaking through for a maiden win at the highest level in the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) on March 19th. Having returned to the paddock after finishing second in the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m), the Galileo entire could very well receive the run of the race this afternoon from barrier 8.
