Ipswich horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (14:00) Follow Ipswich Maiden (1100m)
#1 – Hypothesize – Bet @ Sportsbet
Hypothesize comes off two solid trials where the two-year-old colt wasn’t asked for much.
The son of Capitalist meets a field of only five runners on debut, so he won’t need to be a superstar to win.
Ryan Maloney is a key booking so watch the betting for any late moves.
Race 2. (14:35) Tab Venue Mode Maiden (800m)
#3 – Autumn Daze – Bet @ Sportsbet
Autumn Daze needs to contend with the wide draw, but three-year-old filly could be the best horse in the field.
The daughter of Golden Archer started her career with consecutive second placings and anything close to that form should see her run well.
It’s an open field, so punters should get value odds.
Race 3. (15:10) River 949FM Maiden (1200m)
#1 – Ambitious Spirit – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ambitious Spirit is knocking on the door after consecutive second placings and he went awfully close last time out.
The four-year-old son of Spirit of Boom was backed into $1.90 last time out when missing on the line, which followed up a half-length defeat on debut.
Barrier 15 isn’t ideal, but we’re in his camp.
Race 4. (15:48) K&R Plumbing Supplies BM65 (2180m)
#1 – Neptune’s Choice – Bet @ Sportsbet
Neptune’s Choice comes off back-to-back third placings at Gold Coast and Doomben, so he’s almost back to his best.
The four-time winner owns two wins from three attempts at Ipswich, so he finds his best form on the track.
Punters should expect him to settle back and warm up late.
Race 5. (16:23) Great Northern Plate C1 (1690m)
#8 – Black Monaco – Bet @ Sportsbet
Black Monaco hasn’t done much wrong in three starts this season, including a win at Toowoomba two starts back.
The four-year-old mare scored by a nose before running second at Rockhampton, and although yet to race at Ipswich, she should handle it.
Barrier three is ideal and punters will get value odds.
Race 6. (16:58) Sirromet BM72 (1690m)
#3 – Donandkim – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old has experience winning at Ipswich when scoring two starts ago and he followed it with another win at Doomben.
He scored by 1.4 lengths as a $13 chance last start, but we expect bookmakers to offer much lower odds this time around.
Barrier two is ideal and there are no superstars in this race.
Race 7. (17:33) Schweppes C2 Handicap (1350m)
#2 – Harlequin Field – Bet @ Sportsbet
Harlequin Field got the job done at Grafton last time out and he paid only $1.90 to win, so he won’t be long in the betting here.
The Matthew Dunn-trained four-year-old owns two wins from eight starts and he showed a good turn-of-foot when winning last start.
We like his chances of kicking on with it.
Race 8. (18:10) Seven Handicap C2 (1350m)
#4 – Kellers Shelter – Bet @ Sportsbet
Punters could get value for Kellers Shelter, who scored a win at Sunshine Coast last time out.
The four-year-old son of Sebring defeated only a field of four, but the win should give him confidence to produce the goods again.
3kg comes off his back and he’s worth including.
Race 9. (18:50) Sunday Brunch The Barn C5 (1100m)
#4 – Joy to All – Bet @ Sportsbet
The aptly-named Joy to All has brought plenty of joy to punters with four wins from six starts.
She comes off a win at Ipswich where she scored by 2.3 lengths, so the future is bright for the David Vandyke-trained daughter of All Too Hard.
She should be well-backed to win on race day.
