Launceston Tips October 28

Ladbrokes Maiden Tips (Race 2)

Launceston Next Best Bet - Race 2 No. 3 Wardell

The powerful yard of Adam Trinder prepares this gelding for start number two and although he did a bit wrong on his October 14 debut here, there was enough to suggest he could breakthrough now with natural improvement from that initial outing.

A full brother to a multiple city winner in Royal Rapture, Wardell settled off the speed over that 1200m attempt and did his best work late for third despite doing himself no favours by laying-in for the majority of the run home.

The step out to seven furlongs is a tick and with senior jockey Brendan McCoull now taking the reins, this four-year-old can strike as a more tractable galloper with that key race day experience and this isn't a vintage Maiden line-up.

Carlton & United Breweries 0-60 Tips (Race 5)

Launceston Best Bet - Race 5 No. 2 Gee Gee Manpower

He's admittedly limited, however, they don't come much more honest than Gee Gee Manpower and with three runs under his belt this preparation, is well placed to record win number two as a fit and in-form galloper in rather weak assignment.

The son of Wordsmith has been knocking on the door for some time and got a much-deserved maiden victory first-up before a somewhat unlucky third at Hobart behind the winner Vallabar, a galloper that's a rung above anything in this field.

Gee Gee Manpower stuck on following that when spotting 5kg to Lady Joker, who had the favours and performed well in the $50,000 Tasbred 4yo event last Friday whilst with gun hoop David Pires now in the saddle, he should get every chance early from gate five.
