Ipswich horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (13:08) Whittington @ Grandview Stud Maiden (1350m)
#1 – Broncks – Bet Now
Broncks is knocking on the door of a win after two placings from three starts this campaign.
The three-year-old gelding finished second at Gold Coast last time out after settling on the pace and kicking strongly.
Jockey Daniel Griffin gets to use the inside draw and that should help the son of More Than Ready get a dream run in transit.
Race 2. (13:43) Sirromet C5 Handicap (1200m)
#5 – Solar Star – Bet Now
Solar Star won either side of a spell and it takes a good horse to do that. The four-year-old scored at Cranbourne before coming to Queensland and winning again.
That came at Ipswich by a narrow margin and she kicked nicely after racing on the pace throughout.
Baylee Nothdurft has been riding in much better form this season and he takes some weight off her back.
Race 3. (14:18) Carlton Mid Handicap (1680m)
#3 – Benico’s Prince – Bet Now
Benico’s Prince was a good winner two back at Ipswich and having form on this track is always a positive.
It was his fifth win at Ipswich and although he’s an eight-year-old now, he still has more wins in store.
The 13-time winner meets a relatively easy field here and having experienced rider Jim Byrne in the saddle helps.
Race 4. (14:53) Schweppes Maiden (1100m)
#9 – Winning Brothers – Bet Now
Matt Dunn lines up the three-year-old colt which makes his debut after some pleasing trial efforts.
The son of Dissident scored a one-length trial win at Gold Coast to prepare for this and that bodes well for his racing career.
Drawn wide but he should show good natural speed and race accordingly.
Race 5. (15:28) TAB Maiden Handicap (1350m)
#2 – Upper Delight – Bet Now
Upper Delight is warming up to the task after some pleasing runs this campaign. The five-year-old battled on nicely last start and he meets an easier field here.
He’s a son of Fastnet Rock, so there’s some quality there and trainer Kelly Schweida looks to have found the best race for him.
Drawn well and punters should get value odds.
Race 6. (16:03) Bendigo Bank C3 (1350m)
#7 – Heart Attack – Bet Now
Nathan Gay lines up Heart Attack, which scored nicely on debut at Toowoomba and didn’t lose any admirers last time out.
The four-year-old son of Real Saga ran a nose behind the winner at Ipswich last start after settling on the pace throughout.
Drawn to get a nice and soft trip, which is going to aide his chances.
Race 7. (16:38) Ray White C2 Handicap (1680m)
#1 – Marmaris – Bet Now
Mamaris has been threatening to win another race after posting only one win from 12 career attempts.
The Dunn-trained four-year-old has placed in two of his last three starts, including a second placing at Ipswich last start.
He made up good ground behind Six Stigma and that form looks good enough to compete at the midweek level.
Race 8. (17:13) Sky Racing C1 Handicap (1100m)
#10 – Virginia Dream – Bet Now
Team Edmonds lines up the three-year-old filly which has shown good professionalism to date.
The well-bred daughter of Snitzel was a winner on debut at Murwillumbah before running two solid races at Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.
She’s going to derive plenty of benefit from her fresh-up run and she gets in nicely on the weights at 54kg.
