A final field of just eight three-year-olds face off in this summer’s $100,000 Listed Kevin Sharkie Hobart Guineas (2100m) including progressive young stayer Jerilderie Letter.

The son of Bushranger has won four of his five career starts to date, his only loss being a close third to Gee Gees Top Notch at Launceston in early December.

Since then he has won both his starts stepping up in distance with a Launceston 1400m victory leading to his Listed Tasmanian Guineas (1600m) triumph over the Hobart mile on January 8.

He had a narrow margin of just a short half-head to spare over Gee Gees Top Notch in the Tasmanian Guineas quinella, a margin he’ll be out to extend to complete the Guineas double on Sunday.

Drawn in barrier eight, jockey Anthony Darmanin retains his association with the promising gelding who is one of two last start winners in the mix.

The other three-year-old coming off a victory is the Michael Kent-trained Victorian visitor Albion Road prepared in Cranbourne.

The Street Cry gelding has had three starts for one win and a third, the latest being a 2025m win at Kyneton on January 7.

He had a tidy three and a quarter lengths to spare over the next past the post in that clash where he saluted for the punters as the $1.60 odds-on favour.

Proven over more distance than the other runners in the Hobart Guineas field, if Albion Road handles travelling he could be hard to hold out from a nice barrier three draw.

After Jerilderie Letter the other best fancied local hope to beat in the Hobart Guineas line-up is Tasmanian Guineas third placegetter The Master Speed.

Drawn the rails for his rematch with Trinder’s black-type winner, the Gary White-trained Street Sense gelding The Master Speed was only a quarter length off in the Tasmanian Guineas and looking to close the gap over more distance on Sunday.

Before his last run he enjoyed back-to-back victories at Launceston and while his winning form only extends to 1400m he has class proven by his fourth in the Listed Gold Sovereign Stakes (1200m) last Tasmanian Summer Racing Carnival.

Also coming off consistent and impressive lead-up form is another interstate raider, the Patrick Payne-trained Al Shameel.

Steven Arnold has the mount on the nicely-bred Zabeel gelding who comes off three second place efforts in Victoria.

The latest saw him step out over further than 1400m when beaten under a length by He’s A Genius over 1875m in a Class 1 at Kyneton on January 7.

Other notable Hobart Guineas hopefuls include Barry Campbell’s Tasmanian Guineas fourth placed Sharkbite gelding Siorca and the Scott Brunton-trained son of Tough Speed Speedhump coming off a fifth in the same traditional lead-up.
