Taikomochi, a last start Stakes winner at Warwick Farm, is the Sportsbet.com.au favourite to repeat the dose, this time in the Apple Isle when he lines up in the Hobart Cup (2400m).
The WaterBott trained stayer toughed it out strongly to win the Australia Day Cup last start. He presses forward from the wide gate and should prove hard to run down. He heads betting at $3.80, out from $3.70, but is solid.
That favourite tag could well be changed because local hope Toorak Affair is next best at $3.90, in from $4. You then have to jump to $5 to find the next best, which is three year old Dogmatic, out from $4.80.
