Launceston Tips 21/08/2022   


Race 2 No. 2 CHI MAZEL – ($2.70)

Following one of the basic rules of the punt leads us to backing CHI MAZEL in Launceston on Sunday. We often like following horses who were beaten by small margins at their previous start while leaving gaps back through to the rest of the field. Our confidence grows further when that horse has been well-supported in the market, or in the case of Chi Mazel, a beaten favourite. We don’t need to reinvent the wheel on this one, Chi Mazel was back to 1400m at his third run following a strong showing over the mile second-up. Drawn perfectly for David Pires and should be ready to peak back out to a mile while now fourth-up.



Race 4 No. 2 JEREMIAH – ($4.40)

The good ol’ spell-four-two system is looking pretty good here with JEREMIAH as he stays to trip while back in class third-up. Tends to come to hand fairly quickly before holding his form into a prep. Tried hard from the back when finishing into fourth position behind Hezredhot in Hobart. Kept safe in the market as he chased a brave Sir Simon off a strong tempo in benchmark 76 grade at the same track three weeks ago. Has a good record here, handles all conditions and apprentice rider Lauryn Bingley is currently striking at 50% winners-to-runners.



Race 3 No. 8 NEED A FLUTTER – ($7.50)

Now is the perfect time for NEED A FLUTTER to show she can run out a strong mile. She’s going well, just does a lot wrong in wanting to get her head up and over-race at times. She’s deep into the prep and coming off two very good runs while drawn for a cosy run in transit. Tried hard here two back when she found Rich Clan and Queenborough Flyer a little too slick over the six furlongs. Stepped up to the 1400m and put paid to her restricted 60 grade field under senior jock Randy Tan. Meets similar again while Tan sticks and can give this a shake.
