Launceston Tips October 22

Jackson Security Tas Newmarket Dec 1st Maiden Tips (Race 1)

Launceston Value Bet - Race 1 No. 1 Babe's Boy

Despite possessing an awful racing pattern, Babe's Boy clearly has some ability and in a maiden field this Friday does lack depth, I wouldn't be shocked to see him lob here at a big price.

The lightly raced six-year-old returned over the 1200m at a much shorter quote and after making a meal of the start, rattled home in his customary fashion, with the gelding now going straight to the mile.

He was terribly unlucky when blocked for a run second-up last prep and if you've been burnt with him at skinnier prices previously, then you're having a spec at the $15 for this assignment.

Ladbrokes Class 1 Hcp Tips (Race 2)

Launceston Nest Best Bet - Race 2 No. 5 Geegeeluckystar

With better luck first-up, this long striding three-year-old would've won that Class 1 on October 6 where he forced to work early, and was vulnerable late in a race set up for the off-speed runners.

The late drift suggested that Geegeeluckystar ($2.70 - $6.00) would need that run, so there was plenty of merit to the performance and at start two in April, he did bolt in before facing the very smart Turk Warrior.

From barrier four in a race that is no harder, jockey Ismail Toker won't need to spend those early petrol tickets this time around and with any improvement, the son of Wordsmith can bring up win number two.

Balmoral On York BM68 Hcp Tips (Race 9)

Launceston Best Bet - Race 9 No. 1 Weldborough

Despite going up in weight off a nice second-up victory at Class 1 level, this four-year-old picked-up after hitting a flat spot over 1400m, going back-to-back on the October 6 meeting from Launceston.

The ability was evident with this gelding as a three-year-old , but he was just very inconsistent and now having strung together three good runs this prep, it looks as though the penny has dropped.

Johnny Chutzpah franked the recent form, winning at Hobart yesterday and while he now faces a very genuine Assaranca, Weldborough still has upside and may just be a little classier than his main threat.

Babe's Boy needs luck, but does have claims at each-way odds in the opener.
