Launceston Tips March 17

Good Friday Racing @ The Ladbrokes Racing Centre Maiden Tips (Race 1)

Launceston Next Best Bet - Race 1 No. 2 Military Law

While he's limited, this four-year-old has shown more than enough in four career starts to date to be taking out what is a very weak Maiden to open the Launceston card this Wednesday night.

By Shamus Award and out of the dam Cosmic Strike, a Group Three winning mare, Military Law recorded back-to-back seconds in South Australia before arriving to the Peter Luttrell stable at Longford, where he was fair on his stable prior to his November 4 attempt, where he worked early for an eventual third-place finish.

Four winners have been produced from that event, which is as good as form gets in this field and going to the line with a subsequent winner in decent time via a recent trial, he gets every chance to produce off that hit-out from barrier one here.

Happy St Paddy’s Day MDN/CL1 Tips (Race 5)

Launceston Best Bet - Race 5 No. 6 Tassie O'Reilly

Providing this ex-Victorian can stay sound, he will be winning races in Tasmania and off an honest return over the mile on Hobart Cup Day, they elected to step straight to the 2150m on March 4 where he should've won.

After racing a little keenly throughout that contest, Tassie O'Reilly still looked the winner with 100m to go but along with some fitness giving out (was a month between runs), Codi Jordan did elect to ride him and heels late due to him slightly laying-in, with that decision arguably costing the gelding that bit extra late in proceedings.

She did rate him well from the front in that first-up attempt, so will be well and truly familiar with the five-year-old now who only needs to improve slightly third-up to be winning what is a similar affair to the one he contested last start.

Steve’s Liquor Benchmark 66 Hcp Tips (Race 6)

Launceston Value Bet - Race 6 No. 6 Phenomenal Dancer

Very honest but going no further than Benchmark 58-64 level in Victoria, this mare has been super consistent throughout her first preparation for trainer John Blacker and hasn't had much luck in her last two outings.

After saluting as favourite in her Tasmanian debut on the Devonport Synthetic on January 11, Phenomenal Dancer whacked away fairly in the worst part of the Hobart track on February 5 before dropping to the 1400m on February 21, where she was three-wide the trip on speed and beaten only three lengths.

Held-up for a good chunk of the straight behind the in-form Coronation Pia last time out, she didn't have the turn-of-foot to overcome the margin late but was still only narrowly defeated and in a line-up with little speed, she can settle handy with senior jockey Daniel Ganderton now taking the reins.
