18 horses have accepted for the 2011 Hobart Cup, leaving us with a full field of 16 plus two emergencies.

Betting for the 2011 Hobart Cup will open at Luxbet shorty.

Dream Pedlar has been shown early support, with many people hoping he will be the first Tasmanian horse in six years to win the Hobart Cup.

Dream Pedlar, trained by Troy Blacker, will be ridden by Victorian jockey Craig Williams who has won three Hobart Cups in the past four years.

Troy Blacker is very happy with his horses number seven barrier draw.

“That’s a nice barrier and it gives us a few options,” Blacker said.

However, the 2011 Hobart Cup field will be sure to test the ability of Dream Pedlar, with many impressive horses contesting the title.

These include Micheal Kent’s Red Buttons, Chris Hyland’s Crabs, Jason Clifford’s Forbidden Quest, Russell Cameron’s Fast Future and Ray Worbey’s Organised.

The present emergencies for the 2011 Hobart Cup are Robert Smerdon’s Shewan and Charlie Goggin’s Family Trust.
