Launceston Cup Form Guide, Tips, Odds and Free Bets Offers Best of Tasmanian Racing

The 2012 Launceston Cup is Tasmania’s premiere racing and social event and to help share the exciting track action Punters Paradise is providing a free form guide with detailed profiles for each stayer in the field, a comparison table of the best available bookmaker odds on offer, access to free bets, the opportunity to buy or sell racing tips online and more.

2012 Launceston Cup

The 2012 AAMI Launceston Cup is scheduled to jump off on Wednesday the 29th of February at 4:10pm Sydney time as race seven at the Launceston racecourse in Mowbray Tasmania.

The Launceston Cup is a 2400 metre Group Three event open to horses of any age and gender that offers prize money totaling $225,000.

Given its unique mid-week presence the Launceston Cup typically attracts strong local and interstate contenders. This year‘s eleven horse field is no exception as Tasmanian favourite Geegees Blackflash, who came within a neck’s length of winning the event last year, duels Melbourne raider Sea Galleon and a host of other strong rivals.

Launceston Cup Odds

The 2012 Launceston Cup odds co-favourite is the John Luttrell trained local runner Geegees Blackflash, who's priced to win in the $3.50 range and jumping from barrier nine, along with the Colin & Cindy Alderson trained Sea Galleon who's jumping from barrier one and also priced to win in the $3.50 range. 

In the next tier is the Patrick Payne trained Fieldmaster (NZ) who’s jumping from barrier four priced to win in the $5.50 range, followed by the Michael Moroney trained Viking Hero priced to win in the $6.50 range with the Troy Blacker trained Dream Flyer rounding out an extremely competitive top five priced to win in the $7.50 range.

As such, a free $300 ‘win bet’ available to our visitors through exclusively arranged Punters Paradise Free Launceston Cup bets, would be worth a whopping $1,050.00 at a $3.50 price should Geegees Blackflash be declared the first horse past the winning AAMI Launceston Cup post.

The Free Punters Paradise Launceston Cup odds comparison page displays the top prices from the leading online bookmakers and betting exchanges side by side, to help racing fans get the best betting value for every listed Australasian racing event.

Launceston Cup Form Guide

The free Punters Paradise Launceston Cup form guide, which includes a unique Easy Selections tipping menu to help improve strike-rate, contains detailed profiles of every horse, jockey and trainer in this year’s bumper field.

Among the Launceston Cup form facts that have helped establish the favourites to win and place include:

- The Peter Mertens ridden Geegees Blackflash is unbeaten from five starts in his current campaign, including a dominating win while carrying the top weight in the Summer Cup, and is fresh off a victory over Viking Hero and Dream Flyer in the $225,000 Hobart Cup on the 12th of February.

- The Ben Melham ridden Sea Galleon, winner of the Rosehill Christmas Cup, placed third in the $300,000 Mornington Cup on the 15th of February and is carrying 4kgs less than top-weight Geegees Blackflash.

Other notable Launceston Cup form facts are:

- The last horse to win the Hobart Cup-Launceston Cup double was Zacielo in 2004. With a victory Geegees Blackflash would add his name to this short list.

- The last Tasmanian horse to win in the Launceston Cup was St Andrews in 2003. Based on the odds, Geegees Blackflash represents the best chance for a local horse to win in the past ten years.

- To achieve both of the above, Geegees Blackflash will have to set a modern-day Launceston Cup weight-carrying record of 60kg.
