Ipswich free tips & form
Race 1. (12:33) Schweppes C5 Handicap (1350m)
#1 – So Spirited – Bet Now
Steven O’dea lines up the six-year-old which hasn’t won this campaign but doesn’t have much to beat here.
The field of five is going to help the five-time winner regain his confidence after eight runs without a win. His last win came in the summer but improved track conditions should help.
Gets some weight off his back and should be tough to beat.
Race 2. (13:08) Following The Sun Maiden (1200m)
#1 – Arzu – Bet Now
Arzu has yet to win from nine starts but she owns good barrier speed and that’s always a good attribute to have.
The Jason Edwards-trained four-year-old finished a close third at Gold Coast last start and anything close to that run looks good for this.
Jockey Michael Cahill should go to the front again and they could all be off the bit chasing around the home turn.
Race 3. (13:43) Winter Guest 2019 Maiden (1200m)
#5 – All To Do – Bet Now
That was a nice debut effort from All To Do, which ran second on this track.
The Stuart Kendrick-trained three-year-old came into that race with consecutive trial wins at Sunshine Coast and he’s only going to improve with time.
He’s a nicely-bred type which should be well-favoured in betting and run accordingly.
Race 4. (14:18) Tallebudgera Tourist Park C1 (2150m)
#8 – Filters – Bet Now
Filters capped off some improving form with a win at Toowoomba last start and she could kick on with it now.
She won as a $17 chance and although this field isn’t that much harder, punters should be getting good odds again.
The daughter of Dundeel is bred to get up in distance and the 2150m looks ideal. She found form immediately when rising in distance so stick with her.
Race 5. (14:53) The Last Mystery C3 Handicap (1666m)
#4 – Coco Fashion – Bet Now
Coco Fashion will need some luck from out wide but she’s one of the better horses in the field. She has won two and placed in six of her 11 starts, so she’s consistent.
Her most recent run came at Gold Coast when running second and she has placed twice from three starts at Ipswich.
With two runs under her belt this preparation, she looks in fit order and should be running close.
Race 6. (15:28) Carlton Mid BM65 (1100m)
#5 – Baby Boomer – Bet Now
We were impressed with the win from Baby Boomer last start on this track and he could go on with it now.
The Tony Gollan-trained gelding ran a close second on debut at Doomben and scored a comfortable 2.3-length win at Ipswich last start.
Jockey Jim Byrne pulled him to the outside where he launched late and his turn-of-foot will win him plenty more races.
Looks tough to beat in a good field.
Race 7. (16:03) Channel Seven 65 Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Black Strata – Bet Now
Tony Gollan lines up the four-year-old gelding which scored a quality win on debut before being spelled.
That win came in January at Doomben when scoring by 1.3 lengths. He has been freshened up with a trial last week and although drawn wide here, he has class.
Betting will tell the full story, so watch for any late movement.
Race 8. (16:38) TAB C2 Handicap (1350m)
#2 – Ocean Ruler – Bet Now
Ocean Ruler comes into this having won two of his last four starts and he’ll have plenty of confidence.
The Jenkins-trained five-year-old made up good ground to win at Sunshine Coast earlier this month and a similar run would take him close here.
Robbie Fradd is a good jockey to have in the saddle and he should get the best out of Ocean Ruler.
