Heading the Launceston Night Racing program for December 23, this year’s $100,000 Listed Kevin Sharkie Tasmanian Stakes (1600m) is due to run as Race 7 at 9:25pm (TAS time).

A nine-horse field of weight-for-age hopefuls faces off in the mile feature with Mossman gelding Admiral dominating Tasmanian Stakes betting at, who are offering Money Back up to $50 if your horse runs second or third!

Admiral enjoyed his sixth win from eight starts at the Launceston track on December 9 when flying home in the Listed Conquering WFA Stakes (1400m) and his now paying $1.60 to salute again with regular rider Brendon McCoull continuing his association.

The horse is back up to the mile for the first time since his game fifth to Wandjina in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) at Flemington in March and has two of his previous three runs over the distance.

There are three other single figure hopes in the latest Tasmanian Stakes odds this summer including the $4.20 second elect Eximius jumping one inside of Admiral from barrier six.

Mick Price’s Melbourne raider is a six-year-old son of Exceed And Excel having his maiden run at Launceston on the back of two nice runs back home.

The first was a second when only a neck off Rhythm To Spare in the Listed Kilmore Cup (1600m) in November and the last was a third over the same distance at Sandown-Hillside three weeks back.

The other hopes under $10 for the win are Geegees Goldengirl ($7) and Player One ($8) drawn in barriers three and nine respectively.

Stuart Gandy’s four-year-old Wordsmith mare Geegees Goldengirl gave Admiral a run for his money last time out when runner-up in the Conquering Stakes, but she has bene out over a mile just once before when runner-up to Admiral in the Listed Tasmanian Guineas at Hobart nearly a year ago.

Player One has the outside alley tonight, Anthony Darmanin aboard the in-form Max Cowen-trained Host six-year-old coming off three top three runs including his third in the Conquering Stakes.

He is yet to win at Launceston from seven previous runs at the track however, but can finish in the money if he produces another eye-catching run like last time out.

The only other runner considered any kind of chance of scoring the upset Tasmanian Stakes result is Streetwise Savoire ($10) in barrier four, the Scott Brunton-trained gelding fourth in the Conquering last start.

He has had 17 starts at the track for five wins, a second and two thirds and also has a credible mile record of a win and a third from three 1600m runs to date.
