Our Launceston Racing Tips for Wednesdays meeting.
Videmanette (Launceston Race 7 No. 7)
This four-year-old Al Maher mare has two wins and two places from 12 starts and is going well at the moment. She raced three wide with no cover but kept finding for 0.5 length 2nd over 1600m at Hobart on 14 March, then won by 3,5 lengths over 1600m at Hobart on 28 March. She had her first win at this track back in June and looks the leading chance here.
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.
Sh’bourne Renegade (Launceston Race 6 No. 3):
This four-year-old Wordsmith gelding has six wins and a place from 19 starts and is the early favourite in the Tasmanian St Leger over 2150m. He finished 0.1 length 2nd in a tight 3-way finish in the Group 3 Launceston Cup over 2400m on 24 February, then battled away for 5.6 lengths 5th over 2500m at Moonee Valley on 13 March. He drops in distance but is no value at the current short price.

Our Bendigo Tips for Tuesday's meeting. Key Comments 9 race card. Expecting those on speed to be suited. The rail is out 3 metres and the best bet comes up a big price. Best Bet Doncic (Bendigo Race 4 No. 4) Nommed for Wednesday as well so may not be racing here. Looked to be full of running in a recent trial and found no room on debut. Drawn to find clean air here and strikes the right race. $8.50
The rail is in the true position. Bullock has been riding in terrific form and comes up with a strong card again. He looks the jockey to follow on a card full of favourites that are hard to beat. Best Bet Sardonyx (Scone Race 2 No.3 ) A key scratching comes out and leaves Sardonyx very hard to beat. Maps well, Bullock steers and gets the right race here. Hard to beat at goods still. $2.90 Best Each Way
Our Newcastle tips for Monday's meeting. Key Comments The rail is in 5 metres. Heavy conditions expected so looking towards runners that are proven on wet tracks. Best Bet Dale (Newcastle Race 6 No. 2) No prizes for finding this runner but put in a solid effort on debut and drops miles in grade. In smartly at the weights here and with no jockey booked yet does look very hard to hold out in this thin maiden. $1.40 l
Our Nowra Tips for Monday's meeting. Key Comments The track is in the heavy range. The rail is true. Best Bet Deni Gal (Nowra Race 7 No. 4) None of these win out of turn but Deni Gal has good claims with a superb record at the track and a good record with Guymer steering. He has won twice from 6 goes aboard which is a very good sign given the horse is 3 wins from 22 starts. Hard to beat and maps
