LAUNCESTON – WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 6

By Love The Punt 

Rail Position: True

Track Conditions: Soft 6

Track Comments: Can’t ride pretty here as this track generally rewards aggresive rides

Race 4, No 1 FRAGMENT, Race 6, No 1 HELLOVA STREET & Race 7, No 3 HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Should be able to find a few winners tonight but unfortunately there’s little value. Happy enough to try extract something out of a 3 leg multi with the above 3. All look tough to beat and we’re shopping around the $4.50-$5.00 mark for them all to salute.

Race 3, No 4 GEEGEE BLACKPRINCE

Hard horse to get a proper grasp on but there is some talent there. Favourite might’ve been a bit flattered by the end margin at Hobart and he meets him 2kg better off with the blinkers on. If he can settle a shade closer tonight then he’s a good each way chance. $7.00.

Troy Baker is a good jockey to follow as he can get them home at a good price and has 11 winners and 14 placings from 53 rides at Launceston this season. Has 6 rides tonight.

Race 5, No 6 CITY OF DREAMS

$4.20 looked a nice price when markets opened for this impressive last start winner. Into $3.00.

Leg 1 (Race 5): 1,2,5,6
Leg 2 (Race 6): 1
Leg 3 (Race 7): 3
Leg 4 (Race 8):
 1,2,3,5

$16 gets you 100%

SELECTIONS

Race 1: 3,6,4,7. Small field of 2yo’s. Gee Gee Pengala’s last trial was very sharp.

Race 2: 1,11,7,8. Don’t know about the $1.30 for Century Arrow but flat out trying to find something to beat it.

Race 3: 4,2,10,9. Best Value see above.

Race 4: 1,7,6,10. Fragment just needs a pinch of luck to be winning this.

Race 5: 6,1,5,2. Good little race, City of Dreams was impressive first up and will look to make her own luck again.

Race 6: 1,4,5,6. Hellova Street is 13 rating points ahead of his nearest rival and it’s at WFA level. Should be a matter of how far.

Race 7: 3,4,5,1. Hard to see how they catch Happy Halloween.

Race 8: 5,2,1,3. 2kg turnaround in the weights for Axion on Biscay Barb. Tricky race but he deserves a win.
