Here are our Launceston race tips for today:

They backed TITLE SHOT (Best Odds Currently $2.30 with Bet365) into the red from his opening quote of about $2.20. This was his Tassie debut for trainer Glenn Stevenson after crossing from the mainland stables of Lloyd Kennewell. Clearly the locals liked what they saw on the track, and they were never in doubt once the gates opened. Title Shot was okay away, still had enough class to scoot through take up the early lead over the maiden field. Raced away on turning then kept going into the straight for Codi Jordan. He’s won by close to six lengths and is well placed to Class One grade here. No need to re-write the script, when they win like that after being backed, we should join the que early next time around.

Our early Easter weekend present comes all wrapped up in the form of SHARMA RAMA (Best Odds Currently $2.40 with Bet365). As with Title Shot, we’re going to have to sign on for the shorts on offer to if we’re to celebrate. The market has found them alright, and this doesn’t shape as the meeting to take them on. Scott Brunton shows his experience here with his mare as Sharma Rama looms as the best weighted runner all day. This includes the claim for Erica Byrne Burke who will be looking for some momentum as the Devonport synthetic racing season comes upon us. She has big shoes to fill as the experience of Brendon McCoull guided Sharma Rama home to a convincing win this class last start. Barrier no help, however EBB will likely be urging Sharma Rama into forward position early.

After sifting through the small fry in terms of odds, we’ll settle for taking 6’s about a track and distance specialist. THE MASTER SPEED (Best Odds Currently $6 with Unibet) is getting on in years, yet the ever-green 9yo holds his benchmark handicap rating with some consistency. These older types can take a little longer to find their full fitness, though tend to hold it once they’re a few runs in. Stays to 1400 metres third-up in benchmark 62 class against a few who are perhaps at their top to hold this grade. Noticed him getting home okay as we cheered home Date Night. He was only racing second-up that day then held ground after okay last time after looking gone early.
