Townsville Tips for January 20


GOLDEN ROAST TOWNSVILLE Class 2 Handicap Tips (Race 2)

Townsville Best Bet - Race 2 No. 1 Galaxy Ghost

This ex-Victorian loves a wet track which is exactly what he will get at Townsville on Wednesday.

Last preparation he was a strong winner at Warrnambool on a heavy nine surface, beating a field of 14 when favourite.

Last start was his first outing for Queensland trainer Sharlee D'Avila, where he was a second place getter here on a soft seven surface over 1000m.

Galaxy Ghost now comes up in trip for his second-up run which is ideal and with the wet track, is going to be hard to hold out in this small field.

Townsville Next Best Bet - Race 6 No. 2 Dalon

I am hoping the slight weight swing from when Dalon last met Langhro can be a deciding factor in the result of this race, where Dalon will carry 56.6kg and the top weight will have 63.5kg.

He loves a wet track, with three starts in soft conditions for two wins and a placing, while he is one from one on a heavy surface.

Back in August last year, Dalon was only four lengths from The Harrovian who we know has taken the racing scene in metro Queensland by storm.

The son of Falvelon has recorded all eight of his wins here at Townsville, so the stars do look to be aligning for him on Wednesday.

PAYNTERS Class 6 Handicap Tips (Race 7)

Townsville Value Bet - Race 7 No. 5 Hard Yaga

Hoping the market misses this bloke who is first-up off a six month spell and racing on a heavy surface, which is not always ideal after a long break.

Hard Taga will enjoy the wet track, however, so we know that if fitness is not an issue that he will at least get through the going.

His first-up record suggest he can fire, with two placings next to his name from three attempts while he gets around Townsville as well, recording a win and a placing from two attempts.

A consistent gelding that is a great money spinner for connections, he can be around the mark in this event on resumption.

Verdict

Galaxy Ghost looks well placed to breakthrough for the new stable via the second from Townsville this Wednesday.

Dalon (Race 6) is a good price to turn the tables on Langhro from their last clash.

The consistent Hard Yaga can strike fresh at fair odds in Race 7.
