Feature Race Race 9: Group 3 Hobart Cup (2400m)
First Race 12pm AEDT

It is Hobart Cup Day on Sunday afternoon at Elwick Racecourse and HorseBetting’s Tasmanian tipping expert has picked out his best bets for the bumper 10-race card, including tips in the feature race and the Listed Thomas Lyons Stakes. The track is rated a Soft 5, the rail is out 6m for the entire circuit, and racing is set to commence at 12pm AEDT.

Hobart Cup Best Bet tip – White Hawk

The Group 3 Hobart Cup over 2400m is one of the biggest races in Tasmania each year and we expect the Angela Brakey-trained White Hawk to walk away with Cup glory. The eight-year-old Tough Speed gelding has won three of his past four, including a 3.25 length victory in the Summer Cup over 2200m. He was running away from his rivals on that day and comes up against a similar field again on Sunday. Having made his move 800m out from home, White Hawk joined the lead on the home turn and was quick to put the field away with an ever-widening margin. If he is to claim the Hobart Cup, we expect Mehmet Ulucinar will need to do something similar on Sunday. He has a sharp turn of foot for a stayer and with $7.50 on offer from Sportsbet, we think we have found one at a nice price in the feature event of the day.

Thomas Lyons Stakes Best Bet – Deroche

The Listed Thomas Lyons Stakes over 1400m is one of the feature events on Sunday and we will be hoping the Barry Campell-trained Deroche can get back to her winning ways. Since taking out the Listed Newmarket Handicap at Launceston on December 1, the Needs Further mare has seemingly struggled in her past two starts. However, in a field where she is set to gain an uncontested lead on ground with the sting out of it, she looks the one to be with here. Despite just having one win from six starts at Hobart, Deroche certainly has above average ability with 13 wins from 23 starts. With Codi Jordan on board, we expect the young apprentice to have her rolling out in front and the five-year-old mare should prove too hard to run down. We have seen Deroche as long as $11 with Australian horse betting sites.

Hobart’s Best Bet Of The Day – Four Letter Word

The Gary White-trained Four Letter Word clearly has plenty of potential having narrowly missed in her past two starts. The three-year-old filly continually settles at the rear of the field and flies home but keeps leaving herself with too much to do inside the final 400m. In the small field of nine, she should not be too far from the speed throughout and with the likes of Heather’s Memory and Finxy to provide a fast tempo over 1400m, the race should be set up for Four Letter Word. Her turn of foot is top tier, and we expect Sunday to be the day that the Swear filly breaks her maiden tag.
