Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes Day 2014 – Moonee Valley Scratchings & Track Report

Today the feature racing in Melbourne takes place at the notoriously tight circuit at Moonee Valley Racecourse where two Group 2 events highlight the card and still have full fields after this morning’s scratchings.

Moonee Valley Track Report

  • Rail Position: True Entire Circuit
  • Track Condition: Good (3)
  • Weather: Fine
  • Penetrometer: 4.49

While in Sydney overnight rain and Saturday showers have resulted in a Heavy track at Royal Randwick forcing a host of Chelmsford Stakes Day scratchings, conditions at Moonee Valley are ideal for today’s important spring lead-ups.

The first of the two headline races runs at 2:45pm as Race 5 with all of the original nine acceptors still in the mix for the $200,000 Group 2 Mitty’s McEwen Stakes (1000m).

Heading the McEwen Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au at a very tight $1.28 is triple Group 1 winning spring star Lankan Rupee who is the one to beat first-up here.

Then in Race 7 at 4:00pm a smart contingent of Spring Cup hopes will face off in the $250,000 Group 2 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m), the day’s marquee race also scratching-free with 11 in the mix.

Plenty of top stayers feature in this year’s Dato field including last start PB Lawrence Stakes winner Star Rolling ($4.20) and market mover The Cleaner ($4.60) out to defy history as the first winner of the race to have had more than two lead-up runs into the event.

See below for the full Moonee Valley race scratchings for today so you know who is in and who is out of the nine races before heading to our #1 recommended online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au who are offering new depositing players with a bonus welcome bet valued up to $250!
