Moonee Valley Race 7: Dato' Tan Chin Nam Stakes 1600m

04/09/2015: With The Cleaner leading and Mourinho in his wake early Contributer receives a terrific run in third or fourth position and should win but I do fear that first up over this distance at wfa is an issue as the duo ahead of him are well above average. The Cleaner handles all track conditions which rates him above Mourinho if the track is wet but I would reverse the positions on a dry track. Dibayani has an ordinary good track record but several of those runs were in tough UK and Hong Kong races (in the Hong Kong Derby he was beaten 0.5 length by HK champion Able Friend)so be forgiving on that statistic. He is amazing odds at the moment. A really, really interesting race totally dependent on the fitness of Contributer.

PACE COMMENTS As always it is expected The Cleaner will lead and I have no doubt this will occur and with a fair bit of ease. Mourinho, Dibayani, Kenjorwood and perhaps Contributer (not sure about this one) will slot into their respective spots without much fanfare as well. The ease of it all will make it difficult, but not impossible, for the mid fielders, led by Bagman form wise, to win and if a back marker wins I will fall over with surprise.
