Launceston Tips January 27

Steve’s Liquor Maiden Tips (Race 3)

Launceston Best Bet - Race 3 No. 4 Hero Of Romani

With 20 winners at a healthy strike rate of 23%, trainer Adam Trinder is enjoying a good season at Launceston and this honest three-year-old is one of his leading chances on the January 27 program.

The son of Outreach was consistent in two outings over August and September last year prior to his summer return on January 6, where he sustained a long and wide run on the Devonport Synthetic in a 1350m Maiden that rated very well for that program (significantly faster than the Benchmark 66).

With the winner Need A Gin just missing in a Class 1 following that and the runner-up Endured breaking though comfortably last Wednesday, the form has been franked well from that event and from a soft draw, Hero Of Romani should get his chance in a race that's no harder.

Carlton & United Breweries Benchmark 60 Hcp Tips (Race 5)

Launceston Next Best Bet - Race 5 No. 7 Look To The Future

While he has drawn out, I suspect jockey Brendon McCoull was likely heading back anyway but third-up now and stepping up to the 1620m, this gelding does look one of the few ready to peak in this line-up.

By Nostradamus and out of a half-sister to three-time Group One winner Spinning Hill, Look To The Future is a lightly raced type that following a pair of placings to begin his career, won his Maiden in fine style at Devonport last August and was tipped out after pulling up lame the start following.

Inconvenienced on return when beaten just under two lengths, this three-year-old was five weeks between runs on January 16 in a strong effort from the rear via a leader-dominated race and with expected improvement, comes right into this at a good each-way price.

Ladbrokes Punters Marquee Benchmark 66 Hcp Tips (Race 8)

Launceston Value Bet - Race 8 No. 6 Shewearsthepants

Aside from an ambitious attempt in the Devonport Cup off a five-day turnaround, this mare has been very consistent throughout the entire campaign and although luckless, showed she was back on track last week in a similar affair to this.

After being well supported late ($9.00-$5.50) prior to that last start performance, nothing went right for Shewearsthepants there when losing ground at a key stage before the run home where she was again badly inconvenienced again approaching the final furlong.

The tenacity shown in being able to charge late after picking herself up was very brave under the circumstances and although she loses the claim, it does prove that the money was spot on last week and decent early odds are available again.

With any improvement off a good return effort, Hero Of Romani should take some beating in Race 3 at Launceston this Wednesday.

Look To The Future (Race 5) should be suited by the rise in trip third-up and with a little luck from a wide draw, is a leading chance.

Shewearsthepants (Race 8) was luckless last week but has again opened up at a decent price.
