Unsurprisingly the Barry Campbell-trained headliner Admiral has opened as the odds-on favourite in Thomas Lyons Stakes 2015 betting odds for this afternoon’s Hobart black type.
Rounding out the stakes races on the Hobart Cup Day program in Tasmanian, this year’s $100,000 Listed Thomas Lyons Stakes (1400m) is due to run as race nine at 5:15pm.
A final field of 10 weight-for-age hopes line-up in the race this season including the rails-drawn Mossman gelding Admiral.
The former star juvenile is now also killing his three-year-old campaign and shoots for his ninth win at career start number 11 today.
He comes off back-to-back summer wins including the Listed Tasmanian Guineas (1600m) over the Hobart mile on January 11.
While many of his rivals went on to run in the Tasmanian Derby over further ground on Friday night, the Spretyton-based Campbell opted to drop Admiral back down to 1400m and the horse should be flying over the distance in the Thomas Lyons.
He has the inside alley giving him the run of the race and regular rider Brendon McCoull continues his association with the pair currently paying $1.75 in the latest Thomas Lyons Stakes betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au to win.
There are then just two other single figure hopes to win with the flying Hellova Street ($3.20) and the slightly longer priced Royal Rapture ($7) in barrier five.
Seven Mile Beach trainer Scott Brunton lines up Helike four-year-old Hellova Street in barrier seven this afternoon with the gelding shooting for his third win from his past four starts.
His two wins this time in have both been in black type copay with the Listed Newmarket Tasmanian Handicap (1200m) on December 3 and the Listed Tattsbet.com.au Stakes (1200m) at Launceston last time out on January 21.
Royal Rapture also ran well in the Newmarket Handicap, the fellow Brunton-trained Clangalang five-year-old finishing second.
He also comes via the Tattsbet.com.au Stakes when a length away third from his winning stablemate before the duo clash again in the Thomas Lyons.
Outside of the top three in betting the next best fancied are then Pitt Street ($15) and Minute Repeater ($16) in barriers eight and 10 respectively.
Charlie Goggin & Luello Meaburn prepare veteran Street Cry seven-year-old Pitt Street at Runnybede, the galloper having run last in his two most recent runs.
Winner of the Musswellbrook Gold Cup back in November, his latest effort was a seventh when five and a half lengths off Hellova Street in the Tattsbet.com.au Stakes.
The Tegan Keys-trained Danbird gelding Minute Repeater meanwhile ran third over 1200m at Launceston in his latest run a month back when under two lengths off the winner Quest Master.
