Our Townsville Horse Racing Tips for Monday’s meeting.
Apolline (Townsville Race 7 No. 6)
This three-year-old Rich Enuff filly trained by Roy Chillemi at Atherton has had one win and two place from five starts. She led into the home turn then was headed at the 100m and battled on for 3.25 lengths 2nd over 1250 on a heavy track at Cairns on 23 February, then boxed on for 4.8 lengths 2nd over 1300m at Townsville on 11 March. She has the speed to overcome drawing a wide barrier and looks tough to beat in this Class 1 handicap.
Muzanboal Rouge (Townsville Race 4 No. 3):
This five-year-old Jet Spur gelding has had four places from his 14 starts. He fought hard to just miss when 0.2 lengths 2nd over 1400m at Townsville on 19 February with 3rd place 4 lengths behond, then ran0,8 lengths 4th in a busy finish over 1609m at Townsville on 11 March. He has been close at his last two stats and is a great each-way chance.
Oriental Girl (Townsville Race 5 No. 6):
This four-year-old Mossman mare has eight wins and seven places from 21 starts and is the early favourite in this Open handicap over 1000m. She did best out wide for a 0.5 length win over 950m at Cairns on 23 February, then got stuck four wide with no cover and finished 5.2 lengths 8th after a torrid run over 1000m at Townsville on 11 March. She is a good sprinter but others offer better value.

The rail is in the true position. Bullock has been riding in terrific form and comes up with a strong card again. He looks the jockey to follow on a card full of favourites that are hard to beat. Best Bet Sardonyx (Scone Race 2 No.3 ) A key scratching comes out and leaves Sardonyx very hard to beat. Maps well, Bullock steers and gets the right race here. Hard to beat at goods still. $2.90 Best Each Way
Our Newcastle tips for Monday's meeting. Key Comments The rail is in 5 metres. Heavy conditions expected so looking towards runners that are proven on wet tracks. Best Bet Dale (Newcastle Race 6 No. 2) No prizes for finding this runner but put in a solid effort on debut and drops miles in grade. In smartly at the weights here and with no jockey booked yet does look very hard to hold out in this thin maiden. $1.40 l
Our Nowra Tips for Monday's meeting. Key Comments The track is in the heavy range. The rail is true. Best Bet Deni Gal (Nowra Race 7 No. 4) None of these win out of turn but Deni Gal has good claims with a superb record at the track and a good record with Guymer steering. He has won twice from 6 goes aboard which is a very good sign given the horse is 3 wins from 22 starts. Hard to beat and maps
