The first two placegetters in the Hobart Cup are both being quoted at $6 by online bookmaker Sportsbet.

The Chris Waller-trained duo Black Jag and Vilanova are both at $7 alongside the Tony McEvoy-trained Lucky Lucky Lucky.

Player One, fourth in the Hobart Cup, and Victorian visitor Beliveau, who ran third, are at $9 and $11 respectively.

There are 35 entries for the 2400-metre race, with about half from interstate.

Weights will be declared before 4pm on Thursday and final acceptances close at 9am on Friday.

Whip trouble

DAVID Pires has been fined $300 for his use of the whip on Hobart Cup winner Up Cups.

The penalty reflects the fact that it was only his second offence and he exceeded the strike limit by just one.

Siggy Carr received another one-meeting suspension for a breach on Gee Gees Cool Gal at Elwick on Sunday.

She was also suspended for one meeting on Hobart Cup day but has appealed against both penalties and been granted a stay.

With the appeal not likely to be held until late next week, she will be free to ride in the Tasmanian Oaks and Launceston Cup.

A treble at Elwick took Carr to 32 wins for the season and she shares leadership of the jockeys’ premiership with Brendon McCoull.

Apprentice Raquel Clark, who has 28 wins and was a runaway leader until she got hurt at Spreyton on December 27, returns to the saddle on Wednesday night.

Super sale

MAGIC Millions week kicks off with good numbers for both the two and three-year-old classics at Mowbray on Wednesday night.

The three-year-old race usually attracts a good field but the two-year-old has been light on (only seven runners) for the past two years.

Ten two-year-olds have accepted for this year’s $50,000 race headed by brilliant debut winner Hot Dipped.

Victorian jockey Ibrahim Gundogdu will replace the suspended Bulent Muhcu on the Brendan McShane-trained filly.

Race night will be followed by the annual Magic Millions yearling sale on Thursday which has one of its most interesting catalogues for years.

The biggest individual attraction is likely to be Lot 21, a Tough Speed filly who is a half sister to reigning Australian Guineas favourite Palentino.

However there will also be plenty of interest in the first crop of Needs Further, a group 3-winning son of Encosta de Lago, and five yearlings by Tasmania’s boom sire Wordsmith.

Helmet, Foxwedge, Toorak Toff and Wanted are among the other 49 sires represented.

High Tide

TASMANIA’S champion pacer Beautide picked up another $100,000 when he scored his 48th career win at Menangle on Saturday night.

He was already the highest-earning Tasmanian harness horse in history, marginally ahead of Flashing Red, and his tally is now $2,145,400.

The only Tasmanian equine to win more money was the great galloper Sydeston ($3.1 million).

Beautide will take another big step towards catching Sydeston if he wins the $750,000 Miracle Mile for the second time on Sunday week.

Tip top

STATE sprint championship winner Breaker’s Tip has been named Tasmanian greyhound of the year for 2015.

The Gary Fahey-trained dog won 17 races and was placed three times from his 27 starts.

Anthony Bullock won his seventh trainers’ premiership in the past eight years with 171 wins from 56 individual greyhounds.

Debbie Cannan was leading owner for the second year in a row with 93 wins.
