Hela (Launceston Race 5 No. 2)
This three-year-old filly trained by Scott Brunton has had two starts for two wins. She led all the way and bolted off for a 5.5 length win in a maiden race over 1100m at Hobart on 17 October, then sat outside the leader and pulled away close to the line for a 1.75 length win in a class 1 handicap over 1200m at Launceston on 12 December. Both wins looked very easy and she should remain unbeaten today.
Odin’s Folly (Launceston Race 7 No. 6):
This six-year-old mare has raced at Launceston six times for three wins and three places. She was edged out late in the race to finish 0.2 lengths 2nd over 2150m at Launceston on 2 December, then sat close to the lead and pushed ahead to win by 0.5 length over 2100m at Launceston on 16 December. She has such a good record at this track and distance that she is worth an each-way bet.
Mandela Effect (Launceston Race 9 No. 2):
This six-year-old Turffontein gelding is the early favourite in the Listed Tasmanian Stakes weight-for-age race over 1600m. He just missed when 0.3 lengths 2nd in the Listed Newmarket Handicap over 1200m at Launceston on 25 November, then came from back in the field for 0.2, 1.5 lengths 3rd in the Listed Conquering Stakes over 1400m at Launceston on 16 December. He has not won in five starts this campaign and does not offer value.

Our Pinjarra Scarpside Horse Racing Tips for Sunday's meeting. Key Comments There are 10 races and the rail is in the true position. The feature race is the $150,000 Pinjarra Classic (race 9). Best Bet Silver Back Jack (Pinjarra Scarpside Race 8 No. 1) Silver Back Jack won over 1800m at Ascot 2 starts back, then ran 2nd to a talented mare at his most recent start over 1675m. He'll appreciate the rise in trip and is the leading hope. $3.80
Our Launceston Horse Racing Tips for Sunday. The track is a Soft 5 and the rail is in the true position. The features are the Gold Sovereign Stakes (race 5) and Tasmanian Oaks over 2100m (race 7). As a general rule, runners who land in the front half of the field are suited at this track, with an advantage to those who find the inside lanes in the straight. Best Bet Wings Of Song (Launceston Race 7 No. 1) Made it 4 wins
Our Ballarat Tips for Sunday's meeting. Key Comments The rail is out 1 metre from the 400m to the winning post and true for the remainder. The drop in class is ideal for the best bet who looks very well placed. Best Bet Altermatum (Ballarat Race 2 No.7) Chased home Hayasugi last start and that form has been franked again today. Looks very well placed in this company and should get a dream run from the draw. $2.70 is over the odds in
