The 2019 Dato'Tan Chin Nam Stakes
The Race: First running was in 1949 when known as the Glenroy Stakes then the Feehan Stakes until in 2005 when renamed to recognise the contribution to Australian Racing of Dato''Tan Chin Nam - a major racehorse owner and associate of Bart Cummings “The Cups King” for more than 30 years. Many participants from this race go on to collect major wins during the Spring Carnival and is regarded as an important lead-up form race for the WFA Cox Plate in late October. Melbourne Cup winner Fiorente began his successful campaign with a win in this race in 2013.
Dato'Tan Chin Nam – Cox Plate double: Rising Fast, Strawberry Rd, Rubiton, Better Loosen Up, Sunline, Notherly, El Segundo.
Time: Track record for the 1600m at Moonee Valley is 1:34.96 Rangirangdoo.
Track Bias, Barriers: Moonee Valley has tight corners and a short home straight. The rail is usually True so there is little bias, although an inside draw is usually an advantage. The 1600m start is just after the winning post which gives every horse a chance to take up their preferred position. The field has another chance to improve position before turning into the last corner. Horses coming from close to the lead and peeling out coming out of the corner can run down the leaders if they have the turn of foot.
Lead Up Form: early in the season so many runners will be resuming from a spell. Some horses may be backing up from the 1400m Memsie Stakes at Caulfield on the previous Saturday.
Weight Statistics: Under WFA conditions the majority of winners are male horses, however lighter weighted mares do have a good record in this event.
Date: September 2019
Track: Moonee Valley
Conditions: Group 2 WFA
2018 Winner: Magic Consol
