September 8


Will Byrne from Sportsbet


DATO’ TAN CHIN NAM STAKES – HARTNELL – Race 8 No.1 (Moonee Valley)
Highest rated runner with the most wins and most prizemoney. Expect Craig Williams to push across from the wide gate on a soft tempo. Fitter for his first-up run and is the obvious pick.
BEST – SUPER SWOOP – Race 3 No.6 (Morphettville)
He is racing in carer best form and loves the track and distance. Will sit in the first few in running and be extremely hard to run down at the business end of the race.
VALUE – LOPARTEGA – Race 1 No.3 (Moonee Valley)
In a race that looks devoid of speed, this mare will go forward and get a lovely run. She flies at this track and distance, and that makes her an attractive each-way bet around $10.
LAY – SOOTHING – Race 8 No.11 (Rosehill)
Was impressive when resuming and there is no doubt she is the one to beat, but the field looks to have far more depth. Have to be against at the price of $2.50.
BACKED – SPANISH WHISPER – Race 6 No.4 (Moonee Valley)
As much as $11 was bet about this filly which since has been crunched into $6. The ex-Kiwi has looked like an Oakleigh Plater in her two Flemington jump outs, and the stable are 

Will Norman from Ladbrokes


DATO’ TAN CHIN NAM STAKES – HARTNELL – Race 8 No.1 (Moonee Valley)
Class runner of the field and expect that to take him a long way here. Thought his first-up run was good, he sat just off the pace and was forced to take a run on the fence, which wasn't the place to be.
BEST – APPROACH DISCREET – Race 3 No.4 (Moonee Valley)
Has won his last two in good style and looks set to repeat the dose here. Will get a good run midfield and will be charging to the line late. Looks a great bet at the current odds.
VALUE – ICONOCLASM – Race 7 No.12 (Moonee Valley)
Strips fitter from the first-up run when he sat just off the pace and was solid through the line. Will get a good run midfield and looks over the odds at close to double figures.
LAY – OSBORNE BULLS – Race 7 No.2 (Moonee Valley)
Has been the punters pal more often than not these days, but barrier one is enough for me to take him on here. Will be back last on the fence and will need a ton of luck getting clear. Happy to oppose.
BACKED – SPANISH WHISPER – Race 6 No.4 (Moonee Valley)
This Kiwi import has been backed off the boards early, firming from $11 into $5.50. Showed good speed in a jumpout win at Flemington and punters are confident she can make a winning Australian debut.

Gareth Phillips from Betstar


DATO’ TAN CHIN NAM STAKES – BONNEVAL – Race 8 No.9 (Moonee Valley)
Winner of seven from 12 including two impressive Oaks wins and a victory in this race last year when she was resuming. I have faith Murray Baker will have her right to repeat here after a long break.
BEST – GRAFF – Race 6 No.3 (Rosehill)
A terrific effort when resuming last start, running time and being the only horse on the day to win toward the inside. Threatens to be one of our best three-year-olds and should be winning here.
VALUE – RENEWAL – Race 3 No.5 (Rosehill)
Returned in good order when finishing third to Don’t Give A Damn in the worst part of the track. Good value as the second pick to turn tables with weight relief over the favourite.
LAY – THE AUTUMN SUN – Race 4 No.1 (Rosehill)
I don't deny his potential and always respect the picket fence, but he hasn't done anything overly special to warrant an odds-on quote resuming here at 1500m. Rather oppose him at the short price.
BACKED – SPANISH WHISPER – Race 6 No.4 (Moonee Valley)
Early money suggests she has settled in well to her new stable and will run well at her Australian debut. Has been crunched from $11 to $5.50 due to a stream of solid bets.

Thomas Hackett from Bookmaker.com.au

DATO’ TAN CHIN NAM STAKES – BONNEVAL – Race 8 No.9 (Moonee Valley)
She is a star on her day and was impressive winning this race last year. Murray Baker would not have her here if she wasn’t fit and firing and I believe she can make a winning return to the races.
BEST – ANJANA – Race 6 No.7 (Moonee Valley)
Recorded three wins from as many starts as a two-year-old and she is a filly with an enormous amount of talent. She will take benefit from this run, but I think that class will take her a long way in this contest.
VALUE – NORTHWEST PASSAGE – Race 9 No.7 (Moonee Valley)
There was plenty to like about his first-up run in the Rowley Mile and will improve with that run under his belt. He has run well here in the past and he is great value in what is an open race.
LAY – FUJI FYLER – Race 5 No.2 (Doomben)
His win over 900m at the Gold Coast on debut was good, but this is a huge step-up in both distance and class. I am very keen to take him on at the current price.
BACKED – JOHNNY WHITESOX – Race 6 No.2 (Doomben)
Johnny Whitesox will make his return to the races after a promising winter campaign. He has been $8.50 into $4.80 and punters are clearly confident that he can make a winning return to the races.

James Thomas from Palmerbet


DATO’ TAN CHIN NAM STAKES – HARTNELL – Race 8 No.1 (Moonee Valley)
Looked great first-up running second in the Lawrence. Form from that race reads well and I expect he will be improved for the run. Craig Williams knows him well and the 1600m suits.
BEST – ROAD TO HEAVEN – Race 8 No.14 (Doomben)
Three wins from four starts for this Kris Lees-trained gelding. Good win last start at Scone and Jeff Lloyd takes the reigns here, maps to get a good run in transit and should be right there in the finish.
VALUE – ADDISON – Race 1 No.5 (Moonee Valley)
Too far back first-up but she will be fitter for that, she is undefeated second-up and the extra 200m will suit. $21 has already been taken by the sharp punters but still looks over the odds at double figures.
LAY – DON’T GIVE A DAMN – Race 3 No.1 (Rosehill)
Great return to racing winning first-up at Rosehill and looks set to win a big race at some point, but I’m keen to take him on as favourite here. He has to lump 64kg and the wide barrier make it a tough ask.
BACKED – NATURE STRIP – Race 5 No.2 (Moonee Valley)
Looking to secure a slot in The Everest and punters snapped up the $1.50 as soon as the market opened, and we are still writing bets on him at the $1.40. Looks to be the anchor in every multi this weekend.

Wayne Symons from Unibet

DATO’ TAN CHIN NAM STAKES – BONNEVAL – Race 8 No.9 (Moonee Valley)
Resuming from a long break in what appears a race that lacks depth. Tremendous fresh record and won this last year when resuming and I expect her to be winning again here.
BEST – SOOTHING – Race 8 No.11 (Rosehill)
She was impressive winning when resuming at Randwick over 1000m and has been kept fresh for this. Looks to be a mare going places and Godolphin are flying, she looks too good for these.
VALUE – EAGLE BAY – Race 9 No.3 (Rosehill)
He has been okay at his two runs back this prep and gives every indication he is looking for more ground, steps out to 1800m and looks a genuine each-way chance around the $7 mark.
LAY – DON’T GIVE A DAMN – Race 3 No.1 (Rosehill)
No doubting this geldings ability but he has to carry 64kg here against some decent rivals over a trip that I don’t think is his best. The current quote around $3 couldn’t possibly entertain him here.
BACKED – DIVINE UNICORN – Race 9 No 5 (Moonee Valley)
Matt Dunn tests the waters in Victoria with his handy gelding after winning at the Sunshine Coast last start and punters think he’s a good chance and have backed him from $6 into $4.80.

Clint Wallis from Neds


DATO’ TAN CHIN NAM STAKES – HARTNELL – Race 8 No.1 (Moonee Valley)
Looks primed for this after a close second in the Lawrence last start. Under the weight-for-age conditions he looks to be better suited than his rivals and he should push forward early and be hard to hold out.
BEST – ZUMBELINA – Race 7 No.7 (Doomben)
This Chris Waller-trained mare gets her chance here. She’s had the two runs back and stays at her pet distance with Jeff Lloyd in the saddle. Looks good at $4.60 mark and will be hard to beat.
VALUE – ZESTFUL – Race 7 No.7 (Rosehill)
This Kris Lees-trained mare gets the services of Brett Prebble, was well backed last start when running second to Egyptian Symbol and looks to get a good trip again from barrier five. Great value at $10.
LAY – DON’T GIVE A DAMN – Race 3 No.1 (Rosehill)
Has to carry the big weight of 64kg and with the wide gate he might have to do a bit too much work early. His run last start was good in an on pace dominated race he looks a good risk at $2.60.
BACKED – SPANISH WHISPER – Race 6 No.4 (Moonee Valley)
Has been well backed since markets went up from $11 into $4.80. Has good New Zealand form after finishing third at Group I level, and punters think that form will stack up here.

Matthew Campbell from BetEasy


DATO’ TAN CHIN NAM STAKES – HARTNELL – Race 8 No.1 (Moonee Valley)
Ran really well first-up in the Lawrence and the form out of that race was present last week. He ran well enough to suggest he might be in for a good prep and I like him second-up at the 1600m.
BEST – NAANTALI – Race 1 No.2 (Moonee Valley)
She is in outstanding from and stepping back to 1600m looks ideal. From barrier three Mark Zahra should be able to take a sit and then put them to bed in the straight.
VALUE – GREEN IVY – Race 3 No.10 (Moonee Valley)
Hasn’t run a bad race but has only one placing which came last start when I thought he got to the line well. Out to 1500m at last, so I expect that to suit him much better, looks overs and a good each-way bet.
LAY – NIGHT’S WATCH – Race 8 No.7 (Moonee Valley)
Might seem strange to be laying him after last week’s win and to lay anything from the Darren Weir stable, but up from a handicap to weight-for-age will test him against a quality field.
BACKED – SPANISH WHISPER – Race 6 No.4 (Moonee Valley)
This Kiwi is having her first Australian start and punters haven’t missed her after the jump out. The $10 put up didn’t last long and has since been backed into $6.
