THE Queensland meeting of Tuesday is at Townsville as the popular venue hosts a seven race meet.
There are a number of runners we fancy here to generate some cash as the work week gets underway so let’s take a look at what we’re dealing with.

Flinders Hiway is the only horse in the field that has won previously and we think that will hold it in good stead. The horse won in commanding fashion as a short-priced favourite on December 28 and we expect it to jump as a similar price.
How Leighway is still a maiden is a mystery to us but we do not expect that to be the case after Tuesday. In its last eight races the horse has placed six times including a narrow defeat last-start on January 4. The horse should battle close to the speed and be hard to hold out.
Green Anchor draws well in a smaller field and is the horse to beat here. The horse won at a huge price two starts ago and backed that up on January 4 with a gallant second. Green Anchor concedes weight to the field but looks the best prospect.
Mainshaft get a good claim from the jockey here and when that’s coupled alongside great form it makes for a compelling case. Two of the last three races the horse has ran in have been wins including a last-start win at this very track. Mainshaft is one of our favoured bets of the day.
