2015 Hobartville Stakes Betting Tips

The Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) is the feature race running at Rosehill this Saturday with a classy field of 13 sprint-mile horses set to contest the $200,000 race.

Betting markets for the race remain open at Ladbrokes.com.au with six of the runners offering single figure odds. The Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Shooting To Win is the current favourite at $4.60 but the colt is by no means a firm favourite.

Shooting to Win is one of six runners resuming in the 2015 Hobartville Stakes and one of four Group One winners. The colt will have to overcome a wider start from barrier ten with Blake Shinn to ride. He enjoyed his share of victory during the spring, finishing in the first three in all four of his starts, and capped off his season with victory in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m), however he has yet to win over 1400 metres.

With so many talented three-year-olds with lucrative odds running in the 2015 Hobartville Stakes, you may have difficultly choosing who to back. Check out our race tips below to help you make an informed decision.


#3 Hallowed Crown ($6

The Bart & James Cummings-trained Hallowed Crown will enjoy a jump from barrier four with Hugh Bowman when he returns to the track in the Hobartville Stakes. The three-year-old colt has won four of his five career starts and earned a win at the highest level of racing in the spring after beating home rivals Shooting To Win and Scissor Kick in the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m), which he won from the second-widest gate. His unbeaten streak was broken for the first time in the Group 2 Roman Consul (1200m) in October but the colt has a good first-up record (two from two) and has won over both the track and distance of the Hobartville. With these odds, Hallowed Crown is a very lucrative betting prospect.


#4 Scissor Kick ($5.50)

Paul Messara’s colt has fitness on his side to combat his rivals’ class after winning the Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) on resumption two weeks ago. Scissor Kick took a while to get going in his first race of the season but took full advantage of the leader faltering to power over him and win by half a length. It could be argued Scissor Kick should already be a Group One winner, doing all the hard work in the Golden Rose Stakes and just getting beaten by Hallowed Crown in the closing moments of the race. Just like then, Scissor Kick will need to work hard early to make his way over from a wide gate (10) but he should be able to finish in the first three, if not win.


#5 Sweynesse ($8)

There are plenty of lucrative betting options to round out your trifecta in the Hobartville Stakes, including John O’Shea’s Sweynesse. The colt has won four of his six career starts and only finished outside the placings in the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) at the end of spring. Sweynesse has won his two starts at Rosehill, his two starts over 1400m, and his two first-up runs. All this makes the colt a very prospective bet at $8. He will also enjoy a start from barrier five with James McDonald to ride.
