Geegees Goldengirl has been a strong and consistent performer this time and remains outright $3.70 favourite in 2016 Launceston Cup betting markets with Ladbrokes.com.au.

Confirmed to line up for her eighth start this preparation in the 2016 Launceston Cup, Geegees Goldengirl ran second in the Tasmanian Goodwood Handicap (1000m) first-up in October, and while failing to fire when eleventh in the Listed Tasmanian Newmarket Handicap (1200m), responded well in placing second to Admiral in the Listed Conquering Stakes (1400m) on December 9th.

Placing third in the Listed Tasmanian Stakes (1600m) on December 23rd, the Wordsmith mare returned to winning form in the Devonport Cup (1880m) before placing second in each of the Summer Cup (2200m) and Group 3 Hobart Cup (2400m) most recently.

Up Cups charged home to win the Hobart Cup most recently and arguably offers punters the best value for money at Launceston Cup odds of $5 for success.

Posting an impressive career total of seven wins and eleven minors through 35 competitive starts, the Helike gelding ran second in the Longford Cup (1800m) on January 1st before returning to winning form in the Brighton Cup (2100m) on January 8th.

Repeating the dose in the Summer Cup in his only other start prior to his Hobart Cup triumph, Up Cups has been charged with overcome a race-high 58kgs and will leave from the wide barrier 15.

Player One has received steady support from punters in betting markets since his allocation of the ideal barrier 1 and currently sits as outright third-favourite at 2016 Launceston Cup odds of $6.50 for success.

Resuming this time for third in the Conquering Stakes, Player One failed to fire when seventh in the Tasmanian Stakes but ran a close second the Brighton Cup and third in the Summer Cup before placing a credible fourth in the Hobart Cup most recently.

Craig Newitt has been booked to take the ride on the classy son of Host, who should have no issue carrying just 56kgs in the 2016 Launceston Cup.

Mainland raiders Shockemohle ($9) and Arianne ($9.50) interestingly figure as the only other runners currently available at 2016 Launceston Cup odds of less-than $10.
