Notes: The Launceston track has recently undergone some repairs and has raced well thus far this season.

– Barry Campbell: 17.2%SR @ Launceston

Best Bet

Geegees City Boy (Launceston Race 1 No. 4)

Tough night of racing to find a best bet with any huge conviction, but I really liked the recent trial of GEE GEES CITY BOY where he edged out PUNK PRINCESS late, who has subsequently won 1st up – he was under a firm grip there late and found when the late pressure arrived.

He was well-fancied during his 3YO season and looks to have returned a more seasoned gelding. If he can sit handy and land in behind the leaders I think he has the potential upside to run them down late.

$4.20 (at time of writing).

How to pick a winner

Best Each Way

Mindful (Launceston Race 2 No. 11):

Pretty open contest in my opinion, and went looking around the short priced favourite STONE COLD STUNNER (who although a touch unlucky last start, is priced far too short vs its ability). MINDFUL is one horse whose gone round at huge prices her last couple starts, and has been hitting the line nicely.

There’s not a huge amount of speed on paper here and with veteran on-speed rider Siggy Carr taking the steer I think she might be able to lob a touch closer from the middle draw, versus last start where she drew wide and was forced to drift back to near last.

I think she’s knocking on the door to break her maiden and with even luck this could be her race.

$11.00/3.00 (at time of writing) – I will be backing at TT/SP on a 1×3 each-way basis

Best Lay

Stone Cold Stunner (Launceston Race 2 No. 12):

Token “unlucky” runner that’s gone up the price of a moral. Not sure Glenn Stevenson has been able to recapture her early Victorian form and with Codi Jordan riding in career worst form (Last 50 Rides – 6% SR @ -70% ROI), I’m happy to oppose given the slightly tricky draw in a big field – will need luck.

LAY (WIN) for 1 unit at < $3.00

Horse Racing Tips: NSW Tuesday 18th June 2024

Key Comments The rail is in 2.5 metres from the 950m mark to the 300m mark and in 1.5 metres from the 300m mark to the winning post and true for the remainder. The track is in the soft range. Best Bet Spillify (Lismore Race 6 No. 1) 2/2 on this track and 1/1 over this track and trip. Barrier 10 with the apprentice aboard does pose some risks but this race looks up for the taking and the track and trip stats

Horse Racing Tips: NSW Tuesday 18th June 2024

Key Comments The best bet is in the opening race and has been subject to strong market support. The track is in the heavy range and the rail is +5 metres from the 1100m-450m, and true for the remainder. Best Bet Waterski (Hawkesbury Race 1 No. 9) Good effort when resuming just missing Art Volant who has won again since so the form looks good. Maps well and finds the right race to be breaking maiden in what looks a very suitable field.

Horse Racing Tips: VIC Tuesday 18th June 2024

Key Comments Racing on the synthetic. The rail is in the true position. The best bet looks very hard to beat off the back of a strong run when resuming and looks suited by the drop in grade. Best Bet Corner Off (Ballarat Race 6 No. 10) Great return on the heavy track when running 3rd and the horse in second has won again since so the form has been ticked off. Tricky draw but was never far away in this grade last

Horse Racing Tips: QLD Tuesday 18th June 2024

Key Comments The track is rated good and the rail is back to the true position. Best Bet Sailor's Rum (Mackay Race 1 No. 1) Sailor’s Rum transferred from T & C McEvoy to Nick Walsh back in May and is having his first run for 13 weeks. He’s had 2 trials at Rockhampton and won both by good margins. Leading hope. Check odds on SmartB Analyst: Jo Jackson Each Way Ruby Sparkles (Mackay Race 6
