Press Statement has reportedly taken plenty of benefit from his time away from racing and remains clear $2.60 favourite in 2016 Hobartville Stakes betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.

Press Statement broke through for a maiden win at the highest level in only his third competitive start; the Group  JJ Atkins (1600m) at Doomben on June 6th before immediately returning to the paddock with a view towards spring.

Resuming for a close second in the Group 2 Run To The Rose (1200m), the Hinchinbrook colt failed to fire in the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) but responded well with a commanding performance for success in the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m) a fortnight later.

Capping his year with success in the major Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m), Press Statement has been confirmed to be partnered by regular hoop Hugh Bowman and should receive a good run in transit from barrier 8.

Spill The Beans has continued to receive big support in 2016 Hobartville Stakes betting markets; cutting in from a quote of $6 to current figure as outright $5.50 second-favourite and clear market mover.

Spill The Beans has been a strong and consistent performer for Gerald Ryan through his short but impressive racing career so far; posting three wins and two minors through only six competitive starts.

Returning to the paddock after placing third in the Flemington Fling (1000m) on Melbourne Cup Day, the Snitzel colt beat a number of notable horses to the line for success in the Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) first-up this time.

Allocated barrier 9, Spill The Beans has been confirmed to be partnered by Matt Cameron for the first time in the Hobartville Stakes.

Vanbrugh is yet to receive much attention in 2016 Hobartville Stakes betting markets but remains outright third-favourite to win the race at generous $8.50 odds.

Running second in the TAB Rewards Stakes (1580m) at Canterbury in early September, Vanbrugh relished a continual step-up in distance when taking out each of the All Too Hard @ Vinery BM70 (1580m) and Group 3 Gloaming Stakes (1800m) before posting a maiden win at the highest level in the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) on October 10th.

Wolf Cry and Montaigne currently figure as the only other runners available at Hobartville Stakes odds of less-than $10; sharing the fourth line at $9 quotes.
