Dato Drawcard Heads Stocks Stakes 2013 Nominations

The drawcard nominee for this Saturday’s $300,000 Group 2 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m) has been dually nominated for the Moonee Valley meet with the Mark Kavanagh-trained Atlantic Jewel also entered for the 2013  WH Stocks Stakes.

The undefeated daughter of Fastnet Rock returned from a 16 month absence on August 31 at Caulfield and proved she still knew how to win with a big two and a half length effort to take out the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m).

That was her third Group 1 trophy following the Thousand Guineas as a three-year-old in the spring of 2011 and last year’s All Aged Stakes which was her previous start before the Memsie.

With injury ruling her out of last year’s spring and the autumn this year, Kavanagh and connections were thrilled with the winning return of their star mare.

Confident she could match the likes of Australian Cup winning stablemate Super Cool (third in the Memsie), the defending champ Happy Trails and Gai Waterhouse’s Melbourne Cup runner-up Fiorente in the Dato, Kavanagh also has her nominated for the $220,000 Group 2 W.H. Stocks Stakes (1600m).

Both are weight-for-age over the mile, but the Stocks Stakes would be the easier assignment being raced against mares only with a decision to be made by Kavanagh on which race she contests in the lead-up to her $3 million Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) bid back at the track on October 26.

“The plan has always been to go to Moonee Valley before the Cox Plate. Mark will decide if that will be in the Dato Tan Chin Nam or Stocks Stakes,” Coolmore Australia’s Michael Kirwan told the Sydney Morning Herald this week.

“She is certainly an exciting horse to be involved with.”

It would seem an easy kill for the $1.13 million earner too should she go to the Socks Stakes with Atlantic Jewel’s 117 rating well above the next best, Oasis Bloom (98).

Peter Morgan and Craig Widdison’s Al Maher mare Oasis Bloom won the Stocks Stakes 12 months ago before her spring assault finished up two runs later with a brave fourth beaten under a length by Appearance in the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) on Victoria Derby Day.

Her two runs this time in have been below par again, as they were last year.

In 2012 she finished seventh in the Group 3 Cockram Stakes (1200m) and 10th in the Group 2 Let’s Elope Stakes (1400m) before her Stocks Stakes success.

She comes via the same two races this year running very similar placings, seventh and ninth respectively.

Mares that are in far better form meanwhile include the Darren Weir-trained duo of Ava’s Delight who is as yet untested in black type company and Bec Said No Credit, formerly with Rick Hore-Lacy, who views for their fourth win on the trot.

Other notable Stocks Stakes nominees include the David Hayes-trained Flying Spur mare Green Roller who ran a nice first-up third over 1400m at Sandown last month, and Mick Price’s recent stable acquisition Fibrillation who will be ridden by Glen Boss.

The latest WH Stocks Stakes 2013 nominations are below, entries extended until 10:00am (AEST) on Tuesday.
