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

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
