Ipswich horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (14:18) Ieec Handicap (1690m)
#3 – Melo Melo – Bet @ Sportsbet
Melo Melo scored a win over a similar field at Doomben last start and we’re sticking with the three-year-old filly.
She won by a narrow margin over Bold Executive and she hasn’t been punished too much in the weights. She carries only 1.5kg more than last start, so expect another good effort.
It could pay to watch for betting moves on race day.
Race 2. (14:53) All Access Hire Maiden (1200m)
#3 – Come In Spinner – Bet @ Sportsbet
Punters are getting frustrated with the lack of winning success for Come In Spinner, but he is worth sticking with.
The consistent gelding owns 11 placings from 20 starts, including three second placings from four starts this preparation.
He has yet to fire in three attempts at Ipswich, but this isn’t a strong field and he’s going well enough to put on top.
Race 3. (15:28) Qld State Fair Here Maiden (1200m)
#13 – Shooting Roses – Bet @ Sportsbet
Shooting Roses is nearing a win after posting three second placings from five starts. Trained by Chris Munce, she was only two lengths off the pace last start and improvement is to come.
The daughter of Shooting To Win has done most of her racing at Doomben, but Ipswich is a track that should suit her running style.
With a light weight on her back, expect a tidy effort.
Race 4. (16:03) Thoroughbreds Sports Bar C5 (1200m)
#1 – Boblee – Bet @ Sportsbet
Boblee brings in quality form and although yet to race at Ipswich, that shouldn’t bother the quality four-year-old.
He owns four wins and three second placings from 11 starts, so he hasn’t done much wrong throughout his career.
He does carry the top weight of 59kg, but Ryan Maloney rides and he could do the job.
Race 5. (16:38) Tab Live Sky Racing Vision C3 (1690m)
#4 – Divine Diva – Bet @ Sportsbet
Matthew Dunn lines up the five-year-old mare that doesn’t typically put in a bad performance.
She is a three-time winner that scored easily at Ipswich last start. The five-length performance could be a sign of things to come and punters should be confident.
Drawing barrier five gives her a good run throughout and she will be tough to beat.
Race 6. (17:13) River 94.9fm BM68 (1100m)
#6 – Global Citizen – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Edmonds-trained four-year-old scored a terrific 1.8-length win last start and that holds him in good stead for this race.
He now owns two wins and two second placings from four starts, and despite drawing wide, he could add another to his tally.
Expect bookmakers to have him firm in the market.
Race 7. (17:48) Grandview Stud BM68 (2190m)
#10 – Marakopa – Bet @ Sportsbet
Marakopa hasn’t won from two starts this campaign, but the Chris Waller-trained gelding is overdue.
The son of Sacred Falls scored back-to-back wins last preparation and he wasn’t too far behind a good field last start.
Drawing barrier eight should give him a nice drag into the race and this distance is ideal.
Race 8. (18:23) Barn Family Restaurant C3 Handicap (1350m)
#7 – Expert Eye – Bet @ Sportsbet
Expert Eye didn’t fire at Doomben last start but the four-year-old mare is good enough to bounce back.
She is unbeaten in two starts over this distance and she was always going to need the fresh up effort to gain fitness.
Punters should get each-way odds and 54.5kg on her back helps.
