Odds For 2010 Hobart Cup

February 8th, 2010

The premier event on Tasmania’s horse racing calendar is taking place this afternoon at Elwick Racecourse and betting is very much open.

The 2010 AAMI Hobart Cup will be the eighth race to be held at the racecourse and Rathsallagh is going into the 2200m event as odds-on favourite at $4.50.

Rathsallagh is going into the 2200m event as odds-on favourite at $4.50.

Starting from barrier nine, the Robert Smerdon-trained mare comes into the Cup with the last two starts as wins, and will be ridden by Glen Boss, the Cox Plate-winning jockey. However the 16-starter field is full of some top-quality competitors.

Bangerang Quikpic and Zavite follow closely as favourites at $6.50 and $7.50 respectively. The 2009 Melbourne Cup-starter Zavite is a strong contender having won over $1 million in prize money in his rich career.

Running from the inside barrier is six-year-old Ballack. The Danny O-Brien gelding will be hoping the barrier one advantage will be on his side as he enters the 2010 Hobart Cup at $17. The outside barrier will be host to Beven Heights, and the gelding is entering the run at $151, for punters looking for a lucky break.

Closing up the odds, along with George Blacker-trained Beven Heights, is Maybe French and Mr Isaac both also running at $151.
