Best Bets of the Day

July is notoriously a busy month for owners, trainers and horses - as everybody looks to get their house in order with Spring on the horizon and a busy card at Townsville here is representative of that.

With plenty of rides looking to get up to speed again, whilst others are battling with confidence and injury issues, it is a broad selection of horses that line up here in Queensland and there are plenty of markets worth accessing with the biggest and best Australian horse racing betting sites and  OnlyRacing have their finger on the pulse as ever.

Townsville - Race 5 - Roktaffy

This should be a super contest over the mile at Townsville and Irish flyer Roktaffy is the hot favourite to add to its winning tally. Hitting the post at Townsville over 1200m just a couple of weeks ago suggested that this horse has plenty of running in the legs and connections have asked it to kick on here over the longer trip.

Key danger lines up in the form of Never Cry, a horse that never gives up the ghost and this should be a super race but all of the smart money looks to be on Roktaffyin race 5.

Townsville - Race 2 - Hartshorn

The second race of the day at Townsville could well be one of the most open contests on the card and Hartshorn certainly represents a shrewd value bet. Winning over a very similar distance last time out, Hartshorn knows how to get over the line and this presents a real opportunity to add to its wins.

Most of the betting sites seem to be getting behind the likes of Win And Tonic and I'm Pinker, two horses with excellent claims but for those chasing value, Hartshorn could be the one to back.
