2015 Launceston Cup Odds: Geegees Blackflash v Genuine Lad

The horses that ran one-two in the Hobart Cup at the start of the month are now battling for favouritism in the other famous Tassie cup, odds for Wednesday afternoon’s Launceston Cup 2015 led by Geegees Blackflash and Genuine Lad.

A final field of 13 stayers is set to face off in this year’s $225,000 Group 3 Launceston Cup (2400m), which runs as race eight at 4:27pm (local) tomorrow afternoon.

Narrow favourite in Launceston Cup betting at Ladbrokes.com.au is the John Luttrell-trained veteran and 60.5kg top weight Geegees Blackflash.

He has contested the past four editions of the race including a win in 2013.

Now eight, the Clangalang gelding was last seen contesting his fifth Group 3 Hobart Cup (2400m) on February 9 where he enjoyed his second win adding to that of 2012 when beating home Genuine Lad by a neck.

In the Hobart Cup this Tasmanian Summer Racing Carnival Geegees Blackflash carried 59kg and he goes one and a half kilos on Wednesday, jumping from barrier four with apprentice Sigrid Carr in the saddle.

Despite the weight he leads the markets at $3.30 with Genuine Lad hot on his heels at $3.40.

Interstate hoop Craig Williams is down in the Apple Isle tomorrow for the ride on the Bill Ryan-trained Ladoni four-year-old who has run second at his past three starts including in both the Summer Cup and Hobart Cup behind Geegees Blackflash.

Last time out the ultra-consistent gelding had 54kg and stays on the minimum for the Launceston Cup.

Outside the dominant two in the Launceston Cup odds this year are then two other single figure fancies with Banca Mo ($4.40) and Pelicano ($7).

Scott Brunton’s Seven Mile Beach-based Tough Speed seven-year-old Banca Mo is another top Hobart Cup graduate having run third when beaten over three and a half lengths by Geegees Blackflash.

Runner-up in the Listed Tasmanian Stakes (1600m) at Launceston back on New Year’s Eve he’s after his fourth win at the track where he also boasts two seconds and two thirds form his nine runs.

Pelicano meanwhile has drawn barrier two for this week’s showdown with Matthew Neilson to ride the best fancied of the interstate raiders.

The Tony McEvoy-trained Court Of Jewels six-year-old is based at Hawkesbury but travelled to Tasmania for the Hobart Cup where he ran a disappointing fifth beaten nine lengths.

He drops a kilo to 57kg for the Launceston Cup however, connections hoping that is enough to see him finish closer.

Outside those under double figures are then a host of juicily priced hopefuls with claims for an upset including Michael Moroney’s Victorian raider Garud ($10) coming off a Hobart Cup eighth, the Gary White-trained Hobart Cup fourth placed gelding Ollie’s Golde ($14) and Ryan’s four-year-old mare Iggimacool ($15) who won the Tasmanian Stakes in December.
