Pierro Short-Priced 2013 Hobartville Stakes Betting Favourite

Those thinking they could get a decent price on glamour colt Pierro first-up can think again as the three-year-old is a short-priced favourite despite lining up in a quality field in the Group 2 2013 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) on Saturday.

The Gai Waterhouse-trained star will be running for the first time since finishing third in the Cox Plate in October and is expected to kick off his campaign with a bang.

Pierro has opened a $1.85 favourite at bookmaker.com.au for his return to the Rosehill where he won the Golden Slipper as a two-year-old on his way to taking out the two-year-old triple crown.

Second favourite in the Hobartville Stakes betting market is Gary Portelli’s raw colt Rebel Dane who is so far unbeaten from four starts.

He faces the biggest challenge of his career this weekend but certainly made plenty sit up and take note when coming from the back of the field to win the Group 2 Sovereign Stakes on February 16.

The only other runner to fall under double figures is Pierro’s stablemate Proisir.

The Choisir colt had an excellent debut campaign in the spring, winning three of five starts.

Gai Waterhouse has such a high opinion of the three-year-old that she threw him into the Cox Plate cauldron where he performed solidly to run eighth.

Travelling from Melbourne to make his Sydney debut is Peter Moody’s in-form colt Mulaazem ($12).

The son of Dubai Destination has been in terrific form, backing up a win at Cranbourne to lead from start to finish in the Group 2 Autumn Stakes.

Running first-up is Group 1 winner It’s A Dundeel ($26) who begins a path aimed towards the Australian Derby.

Others in the Hobartville Stakes market include former New Zealand colt Sacred Falls ($21), Darley’s Tatra ($34) and John O’Shea-trained colt Ashokan ($41).
