Launceston Tips April 5


Motree Thoroughbreds Maiden Tips (Race 2)


Launceston Roughie - Race 2 No. 6 Love Nest

The four-year-old has had plenty of opportunities to break her maiden, having registered a number of decent efforts without getting her head in front.

Notably, Love Nest has shown that she handles soft underfoot conditions, as was the case when half-a-length second over 1390m at Hobart in August.

The mare was spelled following a fifth on a Soft 5 track at the same venue later that month, while she failed to shine in her first two starts this prep, including when eleventh in a 1200m maiden last month.

Love Nest took a marked step forward when beaten one-and-a-half-lengths into third over 1000m at Hobart nine days later. 

The daughter of Alpine Eagle has a good barrier here and she may prove up to belatedly breaking her maiden. 

Granville Stud Benchmark 60 Handicap Tips (Race 4)


Launceston Favourite - Race 4 No. 4 Grey Whisper

The daughter of Reliable Man has made just four starts since switching to Tasmania, including when a good third over 1100m at Hobart three starts back.

The mare was contesting an 1100m Benchmark 60 handicap on a Good 4 track that day and she has followed that up with two good efforts in defeat at this venue.

The most recent of those efforts saw the six-year-old beaten just over two lengths into fifth in an 1100m Benchmark 60 handicap on March 29.

Grey Whisper is a proven wet track performer, having won on a Soft 5 track in Benchmark 64 handicap company at Wodonga earlier this season.

The six-year-old has a good barrier in two here and making a relatively quick reappearance, she looks value to provide John Blacker and Taylor Johnstone with a winner

Tasbred 3yo Tips (Race 5)


Launceston Next Best Bet - Race 5 No. 6 Bine

The filly is a proven wet track performer, having taken out a maiden on a Soft 5 track over 1100m at Hobart in July last year.

Bine resumed with a half-a-length victory in an 1100m Class 1 handicap held on a Good 4 track at this venue in November.

While unable to salute since, she has registered some solid efforts in defeat since being freshened earlier this year, including when half-a-length fourth over this track/trip.

The form of that track and trip effort, which came in the PFD Food Services 3yo Classic at the end of February is working out well, with the third, fifth and sixth all winning since. 

She raced from the front on that occasion, but is equally happy tracking the pace, as evidenced by her length second over 1100m here last month.

Tasbred 4yo Tips (Race 7)


Launceston Best Bet - Race 7 No. 2 Cartoon Graveyard

John Keys’ representative has had a great time of it of late, winning three of his five starts since returning from a spell.

Those efforts include a win over this course and distance in the Magic Millions 3 & 4yo Classic held on a Good 4 surface here in early February.

While the gelding suffered a defeat when narrowly beaten over 1600m here subsequently, he has been freshened since that effort. 

Cartoon Graveyard goes well fresh, having won at Hobart in a 1200m Class 1 handicap when racing first-up this prep, while he has a good barrier in six for this contest.

The drop back to 1400m is a positive in this contest and he looks up to returning to winning ways, with Craig Newitt in the saddle for the first time.
