LAST start winner Lazy Democracy has been the quiet achiever of the Barry Campbell stable and tonight in Launceston he could again get under the guard of punters.

Lazy Democracy resumed from a spell with an emphatic win in a strong class four event over 1220 metres in Launceston two weeks ago which was his first outing since finishing second to Espry in Hobart in mid June.

The four-year-old by Bel Esprit began his career in Tasmania when in the care of Andrew Moore but after one start in his home stare he was dispatched to Leon Corstens in Melbourne where he had one start for a third at Geelong when ridden by Craig Newitt in April last year.

The horse was spelled and then sent to Campbell who presented him at Elwick on Hobart Cup day this year for an effortless first-up win in a 3YO and Upwards maiden over 1100m.

Outside if the gelding’s second-up run last campaign he has finished no fuehrer back that fourth with his record standing at four wins and as many placings from only 12 starts.

Tonight he will carry 57 kilograms after the 1.5 kg claim fore stable apprentice Ismail Toker but he has drawn well in barrier five in the field of 10.

His main dangers look to be last-start Hobart winner Laurenstar from the Rhonda Hall stable; Sound Bar, Bideford and Merrick’s Beauty that will have benefitted from a first-up run that produced a fourth to Lazy Democracy, beaten 2.8 lengths.
