Raider Heads 2012 Tasmania Newmarket Handicap Betting Odds

Victorian visitor It’s Crunch Time has opened top of the Tasmania Newmarket Handicap 2012 odds for tonight’s showdown at Launceston Racecourse, the Doug Harrison-trained Cranbourne galloper making their interstate debut in the feature.

It's Crunch Time

It's Crunch Time is favourite for tonight's Tasmania Newmarket Handicap 2012

A winner of five of their 11 career starts back in Melbourne to date, Fusaichi Pegasus five-year-old It’s Crunch Time is yet to race outside of their home state or against stakes company but both of those things will change come Launceston Race 5 at 8:55pm this evening.

The gelding is one of 14 sprinters engaged in the $90,000 Listed Country Club Tasmania Newmarket Handicap (1200m) and despite drawing double digits with barrier 10 they are the $3 favourite in the latest Tasmania Newmarket Handicap odds.

Currently settled in with trainer Gary White at Brighton, It’s Crunch Time was a first-up winner over Vatican in a 955m sprint at Moonee Valley on October 26.

They were then last seen finishing sixth to General Truce in the Listed Fashions On The Field Stakes (1000m) at Flemington during the Melbourne Cup Carnival – a performance White is confident they can improve on in the Newmarket.

“He’s travelled well and looks a treat,” White said.

“If he takes his Victorian form into the race, then he’s going to be very competitive as this appears to be the right race and he’s well weighted.

“Steve (Maskiell) rode him on Monday and reported that the horse gave him a good feel.”

There are two other hopefuls under double figures in the current Tasmania Newmarket Handicap betting markets with the father-son training combo David & Scott Brunton duo Galibier ($3.80) and last year’s Newmarket third place-getter Punctuate ($7).

Drawn in gate eight Telesto four-year-old Galibier is after their third win this time in having won over 1100m at both Hobart and Launceston in their opening two runs for the season.

Their first-up effort was an impressive three length victory on October 7 before they ran away to take out their latest start on October 24 by 4.5 lengths overcoming barrier 10 of 10 and 59kg.

Tonight they drop back to just 54kg and are sure to relish the light-weight as they step up in class.

Punctuate meanwhile has drawn the rails with gate one, the Invincible Spirit five-year-old also third-up in the Newmarket having improved on their resuming third at Devonport to win a 1100m handicap at Hobart on November 4 by four lengths after jumping from barrier 12 of 12 in their first turf triumph for over 18 months.

In a relatively open edition of the Tasmania Newmarket Handicap the other main dangers that could score an upset at a nice price then include the Bruton’s third runner Sorell Miss ($10) last seen winning over 1100m at Hobart by three lengths on October 21, Group 3 winning mare Rebel Bride ($11) and Bionic Star ($11) who resumed with a brave second to Punctuate.
