Townsville Tips for April 8


CARLTON & UNITED BREWERIES QTIS Two-Year-Old Handicap Tips (Race 2)

Townsville Best Bet - Race 2 No. 1 Keys Please

This unbeaten two-year-old was too good at both starts last time in at this track, beating Boomed who she also meets again in this event.

Keys Please has great early gate speed and can sit outside of Boomed or take this up if need be from a good gate in four.

She is by far the one with the most scope and although is lacking the race fitness to the likes of Boomed and Husette, may just have the class edge on her rivals here.

SKY RACING Class 6 Handicap Tips (Race 5)

Townsville Next Best Bet - Race 5 No. 3 Deluxe Rocker

He clearly looks one of the better bets of the day first-up, now getting back to Townsville, a track that he has won both attempts on.

His first-up record reads three wins from five goes while Deluxe Rocker  unbeaten at this track and trip.

The six-year-old is most effective on good ground, but does handle the sting out, so gets his chance to record win number five here first-up.

TAB VENUE MODE RATINGS BAND 0 - 55 Handicap Tips (Race 8)

Townsville Vaue Bet - Race 8 No. 1 Golden Charles

This gelding was transferred to Grahame Hughes prior to his last start effort, seemingly coming on nicely from his Class 1 win two back to perform well in class three company last start, only beaten a touch under two lengths.

He is yet to run a place in five runs around this circuit, but arguably is in some of his best form of late and hard fit.

With natural gate speed, this gelding will offset barrier nine early and once again give them something to catch in the run home.
