Border Protection (Launceston Race 3 No. 1):
This five-year-old gelding trained by Adam Trinder has two wins and 15 places from 25 starts and has ran 3rd at his last three starts. He was held up in the ruck before getting clear late to finish 0.3, 0.75 lengths 3rd over 1200m at Launceston on 21 February, then was out sprinted when 1, 3 lengths 3rd over 1200m at Launceston on 24 March. He doesn’t win out of turn but has a great place strike rate and looks a solid each-way bet.
