THE Hobart harness meeting scheduled for Sunday night in the twilight timeslot has been moved to the afternoon.

Due to a NSW meeting at Bulli being abandoned Tasmania was offered the afternoon timeslot on Sky 1.

The meeting boasts 10 races with full fields and each-way betting on all but the Youthful Stakes for two-year-olds that boasts only six runners, of which two are first starters.

The first race is scheduled to start at 1.05 with the last set to go at 6.12pm.

The SuperTAB quadrella will operate on races 4-7 with the daily double on races 5 and 7.

The Barrie Rattray-trained Benediction looms as one of the best bets on the program.

Benediction will line up in race three, the SEW Eurodrive Stales for C5-C7 class pacers over 1609 metres.

The mare has drawn barrier four on the front row in race three and Tasmania’s leading driver Gareth Rattray will partner the former Betfair Sweepstakes and Evicus Stakes winner.
