Launceston Tips October 13

Bishops Class 1 Hcp Tips (Race 3)

Launceston Next Best Bet - Race 3 No. 5 Tavisplash

In a 1400m Class 1 with next to no depth, it's a little surprising that Tavisplash, Incriminate and Need To Be Unique don't have a further gap on their rivals in the early markets here.

All three of those runners are fairly priced in the $4-$5 range, however, this five-year-old appears as the most talented of that trio, a mare that was an impressive debut winner at Hobart in May.

Hew two main market threats do have a race fitness edge, which is the knock for the daughter of Tavistock, although she was super impressive when travelling sweetly in a September 28 trial.

Launceston Best Bet - Race 5 No. 2 Freelancer

Now with three runs under his belt this prep, including the last two over the 1350m at Devonport, it's now D-Day for the son of Wordsmith, finding an ordinary Class 1/Maiden event here.

Freelancer steps up to the 1600m, a trip he's yet to succeed at (only attempt in the Tasmania Guineas), albeit his last two efforts support the rise in distance, including the September 26 run behind Weldborough.

We saw that runner frank that form last Wednesday when carrying weight in BM62 grade and potentially crossing to lead over this journey,  he won't find a better chance to record win number two.

Launceston Value Bet - Race 8 No. 6 Gee Gee Als Prince

This gelding was thereabouts in four runs via his two-year-old season, defeating Outbound at big odds-on debut, who won two of his next three and placed at listed level in the other attempt.

Gee Gee Als Prince wasn't in the class of Turk Warrior, Tasmania's dominant two-year-old from that season (unbeaten in six), a very talented rival that this gelding faced twice, albeit wasn't disgraced either time.

The Stuart Gandy-trained galloper threw away his other outing in April when veering out late, so he still has plenty of improvement and off a fair trial win, has found a winnable race on resumption here.
