There is only one horse that racing enthusiasts and those in the know are talking about when it comes to the Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes 2011 tips for tomorrow, Whobegotyou emerging as the best bet based on the Moonee Valley form guide.
Sitting as the firm $1.55 in the Luxbet markets for the $300,000 Group 2 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m), the headline race at Moonee Valley this Saturday, is Mark Kavanagh’s reigning champion Whobegotyou.
Winner of the past two editions of the Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes, six-year-old Street Cry gelding Whobegotyou is preparing to step out and take out his third successive title becoming just the second horse in history to do so, the first since the Dato was changed to a WFA feature.
Everything whispers of the ‘Whobe’ to win here:
- Drawn well in barrier five, has options
- Damien Oliver rides, the most successful Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes winning jockey in history with four victories and counting
- Comes off a last-start victory in the Group 2 PB Lawrence Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield
- Is a Moonee Valley track specialist having raced there seven times for five wins, a third in the iconic Cox Plate last year and a sixth place finish in the Cox Plate two years back
- Boasts the second best Win Rate of the field with 35.71% behind Alcopop (37.50%)
- Is at the right Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes odds as nine of the past 12 winners were at $3.20 or shorter

- To Win – #1 Whobegotyou – $1.55 at Luxbet
See above for why Whobegotyou is all but unbeatable and the only one for the Win bets at Luxbet.
- Place Bets – #9 Rekindled Interest & #3 Linton
Rekindled Interest is out wide but was ultra impressive here last spring winning the Group 2 AAMI Vase (2040m), is also the right age (4YO) with four of the past 10 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes winners being four-years-old at the time and has come through the Memsie when a length away fourth to King’s Rose.
Linton has the rails and the best place percentage of the field, aside from the favourite, with 65.29%. Distance will just be short of their best but they caught the eye producing perhaps the best run of the stayers returning in the Memsie when seventh from a bad gate. Won the Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes over the Moonee Valley mile last year, so track isn’t an issue.
- Roughie Bet – #2 Unusual Suspect – $41 at Luxbet
Unusual Suspect adds interest to the field and ever since My Kingdom Of Fife, we’re keen for decent performing imports to show us what they’re made of. Group 1 Hollywood Cup winner last November, been out a while but could be a nice outsider to add into exotics at [lxubet].
