Former Victorian trainer Ben Yole celebrated his biggest win since he established permanent stables in Tasmania almost two years ago when Slick Bromac powered home to win the $20,000 City of Launceston Cup over 2200 metres on Sunday night.

It was also a victory for visiting New South Wales reinswoman Amanda Turnbull who delivered a classic drive to secure the win.

Slick Bromac trailed the race leader Ransom Olds while the odds-on favourite Motu Crusader face the breeze to the home turn.

But when the favourite started to weaken turning for home it allowed Turnbull to ease her charge off the fence to mount a challenge.

The nine-year-old knuckled down to his task and forged clear to win comfortably on the line from Ransom Olds.

Slick Bromac paid $49.70 on Tattsbet and $9.40 the place as one of two rank outsiders in the field of seven.

It was Slick Bromac's fourth start for Yole but he put the writing on the wall with a game second to Our Chain of Command in the Cannonball Charge in Hobart a week earlier.

Maybe Doc worked home well to grab third well in advance of Moto Crusader.

It was a great win for Yole who has been patient about how he has gone about establishing himself as one of the state's better trainers.

Turnbull, who hails from Bathurst in NSW, was visiting the state with her life partner, reinsman Nathan Jack who drove Moto Crusader so needless to say she would have made the most of bragging rights over a few drinks at the end of the night.

Meanwhile Ben's brother Mark, who was reported to be thinking about embarking on a training career in his home state of Victoria, confirmed those plans have been put on hold.

"It's not the right time for me to be starting a training career anywhere so I am just enjoying some annual leave from my job at Bondor at Kings Meadows and spending time with my parents (Wayne and Louise) over Christmas but I'll be back home in Tassie on December 28," Mark said.
