Ipswich Cup Day racing tips
Race 1. (11:43) Sirromet Wines Bundamba Plate (2150m)
#5 – Honey Pot @ $1.90 – Bet @ Neds
Honey Pot has been around some smart types throughout her career and she shouldn’t take long to break through.
The two-year-old filly found the line nicely at Eagle Farm fresh up and we expect that form to stack up nicely at this level.
Carrying 55.5kg helps and she runs at short odds.
Race 2. (12:18) Schweppes Cooney (1350m)
#5 – Indiscreetly @ $3.20 – Bet @ Neds
Indiscreetly kicked off her career with three consecutive wins before running down the track in the Magic Millions Guineas.
She will enjoy racing against an easier level of opposition and carrying 55kg is another bonus for the daughter of Spill the Beans.
$3.20 is a fair price and we’re putting her in our selections.
Race 3. (12:53) Channel Seven Stayers BM78 (1200m)
#3 – Read My Future @ $3.40 – Bet @ Neds
Read My Future comes off consecutive wins on the poly track, and although that form can be suspect, he has confidence.
The son of Nostradamus already owns three wins this preparation and he could finish over the top of an even betting field.
Getting the inside draw helps his chances, so put him on top.
Race 4. (13:28) Great Northern Ipswich Mile (1666m)
#8 – He Is @ $7.50 – Bet @ Neds
He Is scored consecutive wins to start his preparation and he’s better than what he has been showing in three runs since.
The five-year-old son of Pierro won his only start at Ipswich, which is ideal, and dropping to 52.5kg could give him an edge.
A firmer track helps, so watch the track conditions.
Race 5. (14:03) River FM Handicap (1100m)
#8 – Orbisyn – Bet @ Neds
The winning run of Orbisyn came to an end at Doomben last start but he can hit back on an improved track.
The four-year-old son of Rich Enuff owns four wins from five starts, including his only start at Ipswich, so he’s a quality type.
Carrying 54.5kg is ideal and he is a top winning chance.
Race 6. (14:38) Ray White Ipswich Handicap (1100m)
#5 – Uncommon James @ $3.10 – Bet @ Neds
Uncommon James is seeking three consecutive wins after winning at Sunshine Coast and Eagle Farm.
The three-year-old son of Cable Bay hasn’t raced for over a year but he comes off a trial win at Doomben and that should give punters confidence.
Watch for any late betting moves.
Race 7. (15:13) Tab Ipswich Cup (2150m)
#5 – Our Intrigue @ $4.80 – Bet @ Neds
Our Intrigue makes her own luck, and although she’s not in winning form recently, she’s good enough to win here.
The Waller-trained six-year-old finished second two back before running fourth last start. A similar run should see her fighting out the finish.
Punters get each-way odds in the co-feature.
Race 8. (15:53) City of Ipswich Eye Liner Stakes (1350m)
#5 – Vinco @ $6 – Bet @ Neds
Vinco is already a two-time winner this preparation and we fancy his chances of adding another to his record.
The five-year-old son of I Am Invincible won the Spear Chief last start and there’s never anything wrong with that form.
Carrying 55kg is ideal and we fancy his chances.
Race 9. (16:37) Kingsley Lawson Gai Waterhouse (1200m)
#4 – Majestic Shot – Bet @ Neds
Majestic Shot is better than her form suggests and the four-year-old could get back to her best on Saturday.
The daughter of Shooting to Win looked better earlier this preparation when placing twice and this field is there for the taking.
Punters should expect each-way odds.
