Launceston Tips December 8


Transmo Tasmania Maiden Tips (Race 3)


Launceston Value Bet - Race 3 No. 7 Chincero

Despite producing some fair work in his lead-up trials, this three-year-old was sent out at big odds in his November 24 debut, where he rattled home for an eventual fourth-place finish.

By Mshawish and out of the dam Feerique, a winner of the Tasmanian 1000 Guineas, Chincero is bred to thrive over a middle distance trip, so straight to seven furlongs is a tick.

From barrier three again and especially over this longer journey, there's no reason Troy Baker can't hold his position and be a few pairs closer on settling, as he did get shufled back a fortnight ago.


In Series Solar + Electrical “Interest Free Solar” Class 1 Hcp Tips (Race 7)


Launceston Value Bet - Race 7 No. 4 Essex

After a flat performance first-up, this four-year-old put in a much improved effort second-up, making good late inroads on the rail last Wednesday, when remaining at 1200m.

Essex was very consistent in her second campaign and broke through over 1400m on a short turnaround, while she's following a similar pattern this Wednesday, albeit it's seven instead of five days.

She did beat High Maintenance on that occasion, who recorded a winning hat-trick not long after and from barrier two, they should be able to settle closer in what isn't a strong race.

Launceston Best Bet - Race 8 No. 3 Wardell

This gelding was aiming for a winning hat-trick on November 24, a farcically run event where McCoull and co went far too slow up front, which allowed the eventual winner to catch them napping.

I don't mind the wider gate for Wardell, who was ridden a little colder in his prior outing and looked more comfortable letting down towards the outside of his rivals, where he had momentum.

The five-year-old also has tactical versatility, so there's options and now at the mile (won over 1650m two starts back), he's the one with a turn-of-foot in this field, especially with a more savvy ride.

Verdict

Wardell had some excuses in a narrow loss last start and can bounce back in the last on a tough Launceston card.

Chincero (Race 3) and Essex (Race 7) both have each-way chances.
