Hobart Tips February 5

W.L Shields Maiden Tips (Race 1)

Hobart Value Bet - Race 1 No. 7 Broadway Babe

Although a little speculative off just the one trial, we're looking for something that can camp off a good tempo with both Dinado and Lake Bled in this field, two runners that are drawn either side of the track and both like to run along.

Broadway Babe competed against more experienced opposition in a Longford trial on January 12 (fastest 730m heat that morning), which was taken out by And Beyond who remained unbeaten when saluting in a Class 1 not long after that hit-out.

Aside from that galloper, this filly was arguably the pick of the runners in that heat where although she was a little tardy away, travelled into it well before going under a hold late and senior Victorian hoop Daniel Moor takes the reigns for this debut assignment.

Little Bee Early Years Class 3 Hcp Tips (Race 6)

Hobart Best Bet - Race 6 No. 5 Lucky Lil

Given her record at 1400m, the drop in trip shouldn't matter for this consistent mare from the powerful Scott Brunton stable who with a little more luck, makes it back-to-back wins at Launceston on January 16, but gets her chance to atone on Friday.

Following a third-up victory on Longford Cup Day, Lucky Lil attempted a 1620m event where the wide alley forced her a few pairs further back than they'd have liked and despite making strong ground late for second (big space to third), Supalopo had pinched a race winning break.

That winner went straight to a Benchmark 74 and comfortably recorded a fourth successive victory on January 27, so the form has been franked strongly and with David Pires back in the saddle, who has been aboard for all three of her career wins, he can camp a little closer from gate three.

Kevin Sharkie Benchmark 66 Hcp Tips (Race 8)

Hobart Next Best Bet - Race 8 No. 3 Stormont

This son of Red Element should be close to a peak now after three runs back from a spell and while he's yet to threaten so far this campaign, there hasn't been a whole lot of luck attached to any of his efforts.

Stormont resumed over the 1400m at Hobart where a muddling tempo forced jockey Bulent Muchu to sustain a wide and early effort, and considering the work that was done, he was entitled be beaten further that 2.7 lengths on the line, finishing midfield.

The seven-year-old continued to find second-up but was no match for the in-form Coronation Glade (won his next two starts) and had far too much to do after settling back last start, but here from a gun draw in five, gets his chance in a very winnable race.

Lucky Lil was unlucky against an in-form winner last start and can bounce back in Race 6 from Hobart on Friday.

From a good gate and now with three runs under his belt, there's no more excuses for Stormont who runs in the last.

Broadway Babe is big odds in the opener but off a good speed, can figure off a decent trial.
