Our Launceston Racing Tips for Fridays meeting.
The main races are the $100,000 Tasmanian Guineas (race 8) and the Tasmanian Stakes (Race 9).
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.
