2021 LAUNCESTON CUP – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

Pace to come from Queen La Diva and White Hawk. Runaway may also roll forward from a wide draw. BARADE (5) was the only one of the placegetters in Hobart to settle on the rail and was forced to come from well back in the field to make his way into third. Has a huge 4kg swing in his favour from Hobart.

DOUBLE YOU TEE (1) the money suggested that he was going to run a big race in the Hobart Cup, and it was spot on. The obvious obstacle now is that he will carry an additional 4.5kg in Launceston than he did in Hobart. CLASSIC WEIWEI (8) ran a terrific race to finish second in Hobart. Craig Newitt takes the ride from Daniel Stackhouse, knowing what it takes to win this race having done so two years ago on Eastender. Staying on the minimum of 54kg means he'll meet the toppy 4.5kg better off.

RUNAWAY (4) is one of the harder horses to assess in the race, the 6YO is a former Geelong Cup and VRC St Leger winner. Obviously warrants respect. SUPALOPO (12) is the new blood and enters the race in irresistible form but the query is whether this race is a year early.
