Press Statement Tops 2016 Hobartville Stakes Odds

Chris Waller’s returning Caulfield Guineas winner Press Statement has opened short priced favourite to win his first-up assignment in Sydney with success in Saturday’s Hobartville Stakes 2016 at Rosehill Gardens.

A smart field of 13 three-year-olds heading towards a Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival feature like the 2016 Randwick Guineas, the $400,000 Group 2 CRC Hobartville Stakes (1400m) is the richest race on the Silver Slipper Stakes Day card on the weekend.

Drawn midfield in gate eight with Hugh Bowman booked for the ride is one of three in the line-up for Sydney’s best Waller, dual Group 1 winning Hinchinbrook colt Press Statement.

Last seen winning the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) in Melbourne on October 10 during the spring, Press Statement sits top of the Hobartville Stakes odds at paying $2.60 to continue his good record at Rosehill.

To date the $1.27 million earner has had four starts at the track for two wins and a second, his latest being the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m) victory by three lengths over Shards last September as the odds-on favourite.

He caught the eye first-up at the track last preparation when crossing a fast-finishing second behind subsequent Golden Rose winner Exosphere in the Group 2 Run To The Rose (1200m) and should be ready to perform fresh again off two lead-up Sydney trials.

The next best in betting and the early Hobartville Stakes market mover is Spill The Beans ($6 into $5.50) shooting for back-to-back wins this time in.

First-up the Gerald Ryan-trained Snitzel colt caught the eye with a nearly two length win over a smart field in Randwick’s Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) at Randwick.

He is now three-from-six overall and runs at Rosehill for the first time on the weekend from barrier nine with Matthew Cameron taking over for Tim Clark in the saddle.

There are three other single figure fancies in the latest Hobartville Stakes odds with Vanbrugh ($8.50), Wolf Cry ($9) and Montaigne ($9).

Another of Waller’s contingent, fellow returning Group 1 winner Vanbrugh has suffered an early blow drawing the outside barrier (13).

The Encosta De Lago colt won three on the trot in Sydney to finish off his campaign last time in however including a display of class in the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m).

Wolf Cry represents Peter & Paul Snowden, the son of Street Cry having won at the Gold Coast on Magic Millions Day last month before his fifth in the Eskimo Prince Stakes he is out to improve on here.

Montaigne meanwhile is a lightly-raced Road To Rock gelding prepared by Anthony Cummings having just his fourth career start on Saturday.

The progressive youngster has won two of his three starts to date, most recently putting two and a quarter lengths on Kellyville Flyer over the Randwick mile earlier in February.

At more generous prices but still with genuine claims to score an upset Hobartville Stakes win on the weekend include the rails-drawn New Zealand visitor Dal Cielo ($11) having his first run since a second to Mahuta in the Group 2 Sandown Guineas over the mile last November, the John O’Shea-trained Eskimo Prince fourth-placed colt Shards ($15) and runner-up in the same lead-up Le Romain ($16).
