Here are our Launceston race tips for today:
Race 3 - 6:57PM Bishops Class 1 Hcp (1400 METRES)
Good race for a Class One field, and I’m happy to play one in the market here with TAVISPLASH (Best Odds Currently $4.75 with Bet365). The lightly raced 5yo mare comes in first-up over 1400m which tells us that Glenn Stevenson has her ready to run. Loved the trial leading in with a bit of chopping and changing of pace. She did a bit of work to find the front early and then never raised a sweat with the pressure late. Her win last prep when on debut was super in Hobart over this trip, settling about midfield 3WNC. As the pace slackened mid race, Daniel Ganderton allowed her to slide into a striking position. Eventually running out a strong winner over Nufen Special, whose name belies the talent.
Race 4 - 7:37PM Field Family 3YO Maiden (1100 METRES)
Sigrid Carr will no doubt be happy with an outside middle draw for QUEENBOROUGH FLYER (Best Odds $2.75 with Bet365). Punters have already latched onto the little pocket-rocket, and it’s fair to believe they’ll keep coming. Being drawn out a touch will allow Carr every chance to keep her from being buffeted about in early running. Queenborough Flyer has run the fastest trial of both meets she’s been to either side of a spell. Showed good pace to lead in the first one before enjoying a nice stargaze on straightening. Latest trial saw her a little tardy away before travelling strongly in the run behind horses. When Carr asked her to concentrate and take the gap, Queenborough Flyer did so with ease.
Race 8 - 10:00PM Tasracing Benchmark 68 Hcp (1600 METRES)
Searching for horses to improve on the turf finds us settling with OUR SHINKANSEN (Best Odds Currently $5 with Bet365). He’s had two runs back this time in, both on the Devonport synthetic and under Erica Byrne Burke. There were some excuses in both runs such as being caught deep and making long runs without cover. Still think he may have felt the ground a little on the firmer deck. He did want to lay and get his head to the side before peaking on his efforts. Either way he’s fitter now, senior goes on and Our Shinkansen has shown none of the above traits on turf.
