Launceston Tips December 6


Ladbrokes Launceston Cup 28th February Class 1 Handicap Tips (Race 3)


Launceston Value Bet - Race 3 No. 5 Belpine Miss

With the likes of Anyways Roxie, Wheeling and Positive Press all likely to want to go forward, this race may well be set up for a closer.

Belpine Miss fits the bill in that regard, having raced from off the pace in her final two starts of last season.

Both of those efforts came at Devenport Synthetic, including when runner-up over 1150m in a Class 1 handicap there two starts back.

The mare was held up in the straight when appearing to have plenty left at the finish in delivering a sixth place finish subsequently and she was spelled following that effort. 

Belpine Miss broke her maiden here first-up in her last spell and arrives here on the back of a near two-length victory in an 800m barrier trial at Longford last month.  

Christmas Buffet 13th December BM76 Handicap Tips (Race 6)


Launceston Best Bet - Race 6 No. 3 Geegees Gemstone

The four-year-old debuted with an impressive victory over this course and distance 12 months ago and he has shown up well at this venue in three outings here since.

The gelding has registered a win and two-thirds from those three appearances, with both of the victories coming this prep.

The first of those saw Geegees Gemstone win by a narrow margin here in early October, while he duly followed up over this track/trip subsequently.

That latest effort came when racing in a Benchmark 72 contest and the form of that event has been boosted by the fourth home Quicken Up winning subsequently. 

While he suffered a defeat on his only previous start on a wet track, he was beaten less than half-a-length in a set weights event here that day and is taken to complete a hat-trick here. 

Ladbrokes Live Betting BM64 Handicap Tips (Race 7)


Launceston Roughie - Race 7 No. 5 Lady Vuitton

The mare has shown a liking for wet tracks in the past, including when winning twice on soft going at Hobart last season.

The second of those victories saw her deliver a narrow victory when racing over 2100m on a Soft 5 track in a Benchmark 68 handicap there in May.

Lady Vuitton has failed to shine in two starts over shorter distances this prep, including when beating one rival home in a ten-runner 1400m handicap here on November 17.

The switch to a forecast Soft 5 surface here is in her favour, while she steps up to 1600m, the distance over which she broke her maiden at Hobart in April. 

Glenn Stevenson’s representative has an inside barrier here and with Anthony Darmanin up for the first time this season, she may prove capable of springing a surprise. 

Country Cup Marquee Longford Cup Day BM60 Handicap Tips (Race 8)


Launceston Next Best Bet - Race 8 No. 1 Coup De Spry

The gelding recorded his first victory of the season when taking out a 1650m Class 2 handicap at Devenport Synthetic at the start of October.

Coup De Spry has been in good form since placing in two of his three starts, while he was beaten less than a length in his sole unplaced effort here wo starts back.

Trained by Liandra Gray, the gelding showed good form at this trip and 2150m here earlier this year, while he returned to 2150m with a close-up third on November 22.

While Kelvin Sanderson’s mount failed to shine on his only previous outing on a wet track, that effort here in March was too bad to be true and he has a good barrier here.

The son of Ready For Victory drops in grade for this contest and looks capable of conceding weight to his rivals from barrier four.
