Daily Preview: Best Bet Launceston – Nov 30

The highly promising Nunivak is expected to continue his progression through the grades at Launceston on Wednesday.

The Scott Brunton-trained gelding resumes after a two start campaign late last season where he ventured across to the mainland off a dominant first up win at Hobart.

Nunivak Horseform was fair at Sandown in producing a 2.9 length fourth over 1000m.


His first two career outings in Tasmania at Hobart though were each dominant, winning them by a combined margin of 9.3 lengths.

The son of Artie Schiller can maintain his perfect record in the Apple Isle when contesting the Coca-Cola Amatil Benchmark 62 Handicap (1220m) at Launceston on Wednesday evening.

The eighth event of the night clearly shapes as Nunivak’s toughest test to date however this said, one of his anticipated main dangers in Bella Venus has been scratched.

Nunivak looked sharp in winning a trial over 900m at Hobart on November 22 and should be forward enough to fire fresh following the hitout.

He looks very much like a horse on the up and should take beating fresh.

Cuban Missile Horseform has produced improvement with each run this campaign and last start was prominent throughout when fourth over 1200m at Hobart, beaten less than a length.

The gelding should be peaking fourth run from a spell and comes in well at the weights once again following the 3kg claim of Sherry Barr.

Looking at how the race maps on paper, the Myboycharlie five-year-old could potentially slot in behind the anticipated favourite and get a perfect tow into the contest.

Gee Gee Sun Valley Horseform has been given a five week let up since winning a Class 2 event at this course and distance last month.

The mare possesses a good record at this course and outside of a clear cut favourite, arguably finds an easier race to what she contested last start.

Markets as of Wednesday morning have the mare at each way odds.

The lightly-raced Scrutineer Horseform rounds out the apparent chances second up off a fast closing fourth at Hobart.

The mare caught the eye late on that occasion after settling back and rattling home over 1000m.

She will be fitter for the run and Darmanin staying aboard can be considered a positive.

The daughter of Helike has a tendency to be slow out of the barriers which is a noted weakness.

That said, she could at least be the beneficiary of what looks to be solid pace on up front.

The eighth event at Launceston possesses a few potential each way plays however it is the Scott Brunton-trained Nunivak who profiles as a deserved favourite first run back from a spell.
