Crowd favourite Alcopop will have his first Melbourne start of the sprint in the 2011 Dato Tan Chin Tam Stakes at Moonee Valley Racecourse this Saturday September 10, 2011.
The Jeune gelding won his last start at Morphettville, and trainer Jake Stephens believes he has the form to win the 2011 Dato Tan Chin Tam Stakes.
“He’s obviously improved off that first one and winning that last run was really exciting,” Stephens said.
“He seems to have pulled up well from it.
“Once he’s been in… that good form early on he seems to be able to keep going and condition wise he’s holding it so hopefully that’s a good sign.
“It’s going to be interesting to see what he can do.
“Off that last run he’s right up there I’d say.”
Stephens is yet to map out a solid schedule for Alcopop’s upcoming Melbourne spring carnival, however he is nominated for the 2011 Melbourne Cup, 2011 Caulfield Cup and 2011 Cox Plate.
“Probably in two or three weeks he’ll be coming back and we’ll see what’s around,” Stephens said.
