Clarice Cliffs in the last at HQ on Sat a good bet. Deserved favourite. Been smashing the clock in first two prep runs, maps to box seat, is rock hard fit racing against horses who are beginning their campaigns and looking for further. Like it
I'd rather go E/W on La Tigeressa @ 12's. Have a look at the replay of their 1st up run over 1140m.

Best Launceston Cup field for the record would have to be 2013 I think.

Geegees Blackflash
The Cleaner
Dream Pedlar
Norsqui
Fieldmaster (Payne)
Hurdy Gurdy Man (Weir)
Lucky Angel (Vasil)
Gee Gees La Quita - won Tas 1000 Guineas and beat the Cleaner over 2200m WFA
Ollie's Gold - won Tas Derby beating Kenjorwood
Whoever is responsible for all these Gee Gee names in TAS is a complete dick. Worst sounding names ever! I cringe every time i have to listen to a race when there is 3 or 4 of them in. I seriously can't even bring myself to backing one of them.

The Coongy last year was legit one of the worst Group races i have witnessed.
You mean the one won by Best of Days who went on to win the G1 mile handicap at the Cup carnival?

Speaking of - those silly enough to back him into single figures in the Futurity must think he is the bet of the year in the Blamey

On a related note i was having a chat the other day with a.fellow punter about what is the worst group 1 race in australia.

We landed with these candidates:
Kingsford Smith Cup
Qld oaks
SA Derby
Winterbottom

Was on course at Morphetville last Sat. Team Clarken declared - Behave in the last. Killed me and the other 23 punters that were down there, dropping dead as an early crow was voiced. Bookies had to sit to hide their big stiffies.
I’m keeping the faith. On the quick backup in the last. $4.

After Avilius saluted and made my day, Behave pulled the rug from under me just as fast.

SA Derby by a Winx like margin I would have thought. To be honest - any of the SA ones except the Goodwood would be up there.

Theres an argument despite the history and the fanfare of the raceday that the VRC Derby is a pretty poor group 1 race
The classics tend to have there up and down periods though but on average they deserve their status - nothing wrong with the last 5 VRC Derby winners for mine.

Have the last 5 Caulfield Guineas winners been that much better? Debatable
