2021 Hobartville Stakes Day Tips & Preview

Rosehill Gardens plays host to a quality race meeting this weekend headlined by the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes at set weights for the three year old’s.

There is a stack of black type races to look forward to and our full 2021 Hobartville Stakes Day Tips & Preview can be read below.

Race 1: Benchmark 78 Handicap (1100m) 1:00pm
No.11 Vowmaster

Vowmaster has accepted at Caulfield on Saturday as well as the opening race of the day here at Rosehill.

If he stays at home, he wins.

Race 2: Highway Handicap (1400m) 1:35pm
No. 9 Blue Missile

It takes a certain progressive type of horse to win these Highway races and Blue Missile fits that profile well.

The four year old gelding was narrowly beaten first up before finishing sixth in a similar race to this at his next start.

He then broke through at the Sapphire Coast last time out and he will appreciate the step up to 1400m at this stage in his prep.

Rachel King is booked and she is low key flying at the minute.

Race 3: Benchmark 100 Handicap (1400m) 2:10pm
No. 9 Subedar

Subedar is a rising star of the turf and despite a string of placings, he still has a fair amount of upside to him.

The grey gelding by Sepoy resumed with a second at Randwick where he got to within half a length of All Time Legend over 1400m and although this is a step up in class, he will appreciated the drop in weight to just 52kgs.


Race 4: Group 2 Millie Fox Stakes (1300m) 2:45pm
No. 1 Madam Rouge

There is no doubt in my mind that Madam Rouge is the best mare in the Millie Fox Stakes and her first up form has been okay over her career.

She finished spring campaign with an impressive win in the Group 2 Tristarc Stakes and a repeat of that effort would see her winning a race of this quality.

each way
Race 5: Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m) 3:20pm
No. 8 Dio

Dio was a $1.1 million purchase from the 2020 Inglis Easter Yearling Sales and he makes his debut in the Silver Slipper Stakes.

The colt is by Zoustar and out of two time Group 3 winning mare Solar Charged.

He has been seen at the trials on two occasions with the latest a very soft second at Hawkesbury.

The $10 at time of publish seems overs.

Race 6: Listed Parramatta Cup (1900m) 3:55pm
No. 6 Collide

Australian Bloodstock produce another staying import for us to see this Saturday in the Listed Parramatta Cup.

Collide has six wins from 16 career race starts as he embarked on his Australian career in a race that lacks a lot of depth.

The son of Frankel has trialled well leading into his Australian debut and although he will improve on anything that he produces here, he is still very much a winning chance from a good draw.

Race 7: Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) 4:35pm
No. 4 Peltzer

Peltzer made it six wins from nine career starts when winning the Group 3 Eskimo Prince at Randwick first up.

The son of So You Think proved that he has continued to grow and get stronger as an older horse and he stands out as the horse that has shown the most imporvement of this three year old bunch.

Tim Clark will have plenty of options from barrier five.


Race 8: Benchmark 94 Handicap (1100m) 5:15pm
No. 11 All Cylinders

All Cylinders has just the one run to his name in the past 12 months but he has shown plenty ability in his short 12 start career to date.

He stepped out in a pretty hot little race at Grafton in July last year and was denied a win by the barest of margins.

A recent trial suggests he is ready to win first up and he gets in well at the weights.

best bet
Race 9: Benchmark 78 Handicap (1400m) 5:55pm
No. 16 Wheelhouse

The Chris Waller trained Wheelhouse has three trials leading into his first up assignment at Randwick and he produced a sharp turn of foot late to win the race in relative ease.

The son of Pierro was runner up at Listed level in April last year proving that there is plenty of potential in the colt.

He is the fourth emergency but with a few of these being dual acceptors, he shouldn’t have a problem getting a run.
