Fawkner Favourite for Underwood Stakes
CONRTIBUTER was awesome in autumn and would surely have been a firm favourite for the Underwood Stakes had he not ran so plainly in the Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes on his return at Moonee Valley. The 6 year old stallion can bounce back though. He’s got a solid second up record and if he rediscovers his best form, the $4.40 chance will be hard to beat. Top-rater FAWKNER is around the $3.30 favourite. The class galloper was gusty winning the Group One Makybe Diva Stakes first up a fortnight ago. He’s a big chance to become just the fourth horse since 2000 to do the double.
THE CLEANER ($6.50) will be up front and could clean up again if it gets an easy run. The 8 year old won the Group 2 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes with ease and will once again be making his own luck! The likes of MONGOLIAN KHAN ($11) and VOLK’N’STOCKBARRELL ($14) are double figure chances which could run a race.
