Here are our Launceston race tips for today:

Brendan McShane swaps the blinkers for the softer option of winkers on NOZTRABEEL (Best Odds Currently $5.50 with Bet365). He also has senior rider Bulent Muhcu to guide from a perfect inside draw where he can gain the run of the race. Stays to the mile after trying to do it all the way from the death seat outside the leader under the apprentice last time. Only paddled late as Skilendra rushed past inside the furlong. That horse since should have perhaps won here last week also which says something about the form. Fitter now at his fourth race start with plenty of trialing under his belt and can be in this for a long way.

Mare in form GEE GEES JENNIA (Best Odds Currently $3.80 with Bet365) has turned it on this prep, winning three from her past four races. Two of those were over this track and trip while in this class range as she provides Taylor Johnstone with more than just invaluable learning experiences. Love the way this mare has been tracking up under Johnstone who has been giving her the gun run throughout their races. Drawn to receive similar again, and with the rail back true from seven metres last prep, there should be a good even coverage of fresh grass across the track.

Fitter for recent racing is FIGHTING STYX (Best Odds Currently $9 with Sportsbet) who pushed hard to find the lead here when racing second-up. He remained thereabouts down to the 100m before he really started to shorten as Twee softened him up and Gee Gee Als Prince swept past. Pushed forward again, this time sitting off the leader over this trip at Hobart. Still went up to them early before turning and left a sitting shot if they were good enough. One horse was good enough to come out of the pack in Gee Gees Punter who raced past him late. Can find a good run near the speed again for Codi Jordan and looks the best each-way play for the night.
