Sydney’s Rosehill Gardens Racecourse will come alive on Saturday as it plays host to a plethora of races including the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m).
With 13 starters, the $200,000 race looks set to be an exciting battle on the track, and will be held as the sixth race of the day.
Drawing the favoured inside barrier is Monton. The three-year-old gelding recently won a 1,400 metres handicap at the Rosehill Gardens Racecourse, but would have to prove himself when competing against these quality starters.
Starting at the wide barrier for the 2010 Hobartville Stakes is Captain Sonador. However, the Roger Milne-trained colt has won from a wide barrier before, in a 1,120 metre handicap at Doomben, and could well produce the same run on Saturday.
Perhaps one of the stronger contenders for the 2010 Hobartville Stakes is the Gai Waterhouse-trained Manhattan Rain.
John Thompson has two strong contenders for the race in Gathering and Saint Encosta starting from the second and ninth barriers respectively.
Perhaps one of the stronger contenders for the 2010 Hobartville Stakes is the Gai Waterhouse-trained Manhattan Rain. Starting from the middle of the line-up, the colt with a good track record has recently fallen short of expectations, and will hope to prove himself on Saturday.
Not to be overlooked for the 2010 Hobartville Stakes is the Peter Snowden-trained Kidnapped. The gelding, winner of the Group 2 Sandown Guineas (1600m) and the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m), is starting from the seventh barrier and is another starter to keep an eye on.
Also taking place at the Rosehill Gardens Racecourse on Saturday is the Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m) and the Group 3 Millie Fox Stakes (1300m).
