February 19th, 2015

A standout performer over the Spring Racing Carnival, Shooting To Win has opened as and maintained status as outright favourite in 2015 Hobartville Stakes betting markets, currently available at a quote of $4.60 for success with Ladbrokes.com.au.

Taking out two winter minors on debut before returning to the paddock, Shooting To Win appeared to be out of his depth when beating just one runner home in the Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes (1300m) upon resuming in spring, but quickly found his feet in running second in the Group 3 Ming Dynasty Quality (1400m) and third in the Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m).

Returning to the winner’s circle in the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m) on September 27th, the Northern Meteor colt stamped his claims as a serious racehorse when taking out the featured Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) on October 11th.

While yet to experience much more than a sprinkling of wagers in 2015 Hobartville Stakes betting markets, Scissor Kick has maintained status as outright second-favourite and currently sits at generous odds of $5.50.

A standout performer for Paul Messara over the Spring Carnival, Scissor Kick took out a minor over 1250m first-up in July before claiming back-to-back victories in the Listed Rosebud (1200m) and Up And Coming Stakes before running a close second in the Golden Rose.

Continuing to second in the Stan Fox Stakes, the son of Redoute’s Choice was clearly seeking a return to the paddock when failing to fire and ninth in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) on November 1st.

Having charged home to win the Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) first-up this time, Scissor Kick will have to overcome the outside barrier on Saturday but is more than worth consideration for a Hobartville Stakes bet at current odds.

Opening at odds of $6.50, Scissor Kick’s stable mate Panzer Division has so-far received the greatest market share of bets for success in the Hobartville Stakes and now registers as clear market mover and third-favourite at even $6 odds.

Delivering Messara a rare quinella when finishing second in the Up And Coming Stakes, Panzer Division progressed to victory in the Group 3 Ming Dynasty Quality (1400m) before placing a credible fifth amongst open company in the Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m) on September 20th.

Returning for an impressive fourth, again amongst open company in the Group 2 Expressway Stakes (1200m) on January 31st, Panzer Division is sure to react favourably to a step-up in distance this weekend and step back to his own age group and therefore arguably offers punters the best value for success in 2015 Hobartville Stakes betting markets.
