Hobart Tips February 7

Unique Doors and Windows Maiden Tips (Race 2)

Hobart Best Bet - Race 2 No. 6 Merv Decides

Banging firmly on the door for a Maiden win is this three-year-old from the Terence Evans stable and off the two performances we've seen to date, the step out to 1400m looks the perfect set-up this Sunday.

Despite the bolter's odds, he was only a stride off grabbing that breakthrough victory on debut at Launceston and backed that up with a third at Hobart, shuffled back throughout that run and spotting them a start before savaging the line late behind Don'tbuckmeoff.

That winner has franked the form nicely with a Class 1 win here on Friday and over this extra furlong where he can balance up better and ideally settle a little closer, Merv Decides can get on the board in the second on Hobart Cup Day.

Silk Laser Clinics Benchmark 66 Hcp Tips (Race 5)

Hobart Next Best Bet - Race 5 No. 2 And Beyond

There's been plenty to like about the unbeaten run of And Beyond who after doing some early from a wide gate, sprinted away on January 16 for a first-up victory and the time stacked well for the class (just over a length inferior to Benchmark 74).

The son of Wordsmith had trialled very well prior to that resumption and it was only a short break since winning his debut on October 28, getting the better of a battle with Supalopo to the line, a galloper who has just completed a fourth successive win, so the form is strong.

Although this is his biggest challenge to date, this four-year-old does look to have a bit more upside than his rivals and with tactical speed from barrier five, he's going put himself right there early under apprentice jockey Kyle Maskiell, who takes 1.5kg off.

Ladbrokes Hobart Cup Tips (Race 9)

Hobart Cup Tip - Race 9 No. 2 Mandela Effect

He's been costly for punters this preparation, arriving here off four consecutive placings (three as favourite) although to be fair, the combined beaten margin for those defeats has only been two and a half lengths, so he's certainly been competitive.

The son of Turrfontein is tackling the 2400m for the first time and is now at handicap level, which are two queries but with that closing effort when narrowly beaten in the Summer Cup, this trip is well worth a try and he did put a decent space on the next runner home via that last start.

While the market has given up on Mandela Effect and perhaps fairly, so have some of his supporters, he's at least an each-way price in a very competitive feature and is racing every bit as consistently as anything else in this line-up.
