Ipswich Cup Day horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:38) Sirromet Bundamba Plate (1350m)
#2 – Derani @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Derani comes off a win at Doomben and he’s good enough to kick on with it. The Kacy Fogden-trained son of Sebring won by a length against a similar field and punters get value odds.
He is a two-year-old worth following and his turn-of-foot was impressive, so he’s capable of rising through the grades.
Take the $5 before the odds drop.
Race 2. (12:13) Carlton Mid Ipswich BM80 (1666m)
#6 – Getyourgreyon @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Getyourgreyon comes off back-to-back wins at Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast, so he could be heading places.
The four-year-old son of Bel Esprit owns five wins from 16 starts and we would be surprised if punters didn’t come for him late.
Barrier eight could be tricky but he should get a nice drag into the race.
Race 3. (12:48) Channel Seven Stayers BM78 (2500m)
#2 – Incentivise @ $1.35 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old gelding has rattled off four consecutive wins and although the odds are short, he’s a runner worth following.
He is a son of Shamus Award that scored by nine lengths at Eagle Farm last start and that form stacks up brilliantly for this race.
It could pay to include Incentivise in multi bets.
Race 4. (13:23) Ray White Ipswich 0MW (1350m)
#9 – Red Bloom @ $7.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Red Bloom didn’t fire last start at Eagle Farm but her form prior included a win at Ipswich and she is unbeaten in four starts here.
She is an Ipswich specialist and her recent win came by over three lengths, so it was effortless and she is worth following.
Bookmakers have missed her in the market, so take the value available.
Race 5. (13:58) Schweppes TL Cooney (1350m)
#12 – Palaisipan @ $3.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Chris Munce-trained three-year-old is unbeaten after three starts and two of them have come at Ipswich.
She is a daughter of So You Think that has won all three races narrowly, but she knows where the line is and that’s a good asset to have.
Having Craig Williams in the saddle is a bonus.
Race 6. (14:37) River FM C6 Plate (1200m)
#3 – Desert Lord @ $2.45 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Desert Lord has yet to race at Ipswich, but the six-year-old is a slick sprinter on his day and his form bodes well.
The six-year-old son of High Chaparral is a six-time winner from 23 starts and two of those wins have come over this distance.
His opening odds have firmed considerably, so that’s a good sign.
Race 7. (15:17) Ipswich Cup (2150m)
#2 – So You Win @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
So You Win is getting close to a win without getting much luck. The six-year-old gelding is a seven-time winner that finished off nicely last time out and that form bodes well.
He has yet to run at Ipswich, but it’s a track that should suit and punters get a fair price with bookmakers.
Luke Dittman rides and we’re expecting a nice effort.
Race 8. (15:53) City of Ipswich Eye Liner Stakes (1350m)
#14 – Really Discreet @ $17 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Coming off a win at Doomben is Really Discreet, which scored by 3.3 lengths and she has plenty of upside.
The four-year-old mare faces her toughest test to date, but she gets in with only 54kg on her back and punters get value odds.
Robbie Fradd rides and we wouldn’t be surprised to see her win.
Race 9. (16:36) Ipswich Gai Waterhouse (1200m)
#2 – Boomtown Lass @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Boomtown Lass has put together many placings in a row and she deserves a winning turn on Saturday.
The five-year-old mare has missed a win or placing in only one of her five starts at Ipswich, so punters should expect a good run.
The inside draw is ideal and she loves the distance.
