Ipswich horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (13:08) Follow @ Ipswichturfclub BM65 (1666m)
#4 – Sea Ripple – Bet @ Sportsbet
David Vandyke lines up the three-year-old filly who scored a win on debut at Sunshine Coast by a half-length.
The daughter of Sebring had good betting support on debut, and despite facing a much harder field here, we’re expecting similar betting support.
Having Ryan Maloney in the saddle is a bonus.
Race 2. (13:43) Members & Mates Raceday Maiden (2150m)
#5 – Jakk’s Right – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old gelding owns only two placings from 12 starts, but that was an encouraging performance at Gold Coast last start.
He finished second over 1800m and the rise in distance is only going to help his chances. Punters should get value odds, so we wouldn’t leave him out of calculations.
Race 3. (14:18) Oktoberfest @ The Barn BM68 (800m)
#5 – Trip the Light – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old mare is rarely out of the action after posting three wins and six placings from 13 career starts.
She has finished in the first two home in three of her four starts at Ipswich, so punters should be confident of a top result.
Barrier six should give her a nice drag into the race.
Race 4. (14:53) Beers, Bubbles & Brunch Maiden (1200m)
#3 – Bolt Action – Bet @ Sportsbet
Bolt Action has two placings from two starts and it’s only a matter of time before he scores his maiden win.
The three-year-old son of Shooting to Win was the heavily backed $1.65 favourite last start, so he will likely be well-supported again.
Ryan Maloney rides and that should drive his price down.
Race 5. (15:28) ITC Membership Now Open C4 (1350m)
#1 – Xanthus – Bet @ Sportsbet
Xanthus showed excellent form to start his career, and although it has tapered off a touch, he still can win.
The five-year-old son of Better than Ready showed improvement when third at Murwillumbah last time out, and that form bodes well for midweek level.
Zac Lloyd takes 3kg off his back, so put him on top.
Race 6. (16:03) The Barn Family Restaurant C1 (1200m)
#7 – Saltoree – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old mare has made a positive start to her career with a win and three second placings from five starts.
She has finished outside the top two only once, so the consistency is there. She is looking to rebound from her worst performance when sixth at Sunshine Coast but dropping in class helps.
Punters could get each-way odds on race day.
Race 7. (16:38) Ipswich Events BM70 (1666m)
#3 – Genuine Al – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking to continue his winning form is Genuine Al, who owns four wins from eight starts. The five-year-old gelding won at Sunshine Coast last start, where he relished the rise in distance.
He scored by a length as the $2.35 favourite and we expect similar odds this time around, which would be a value price.
It’s another good ride for Lloyd, and his claim is ideal.
Race 8. (17:13) Melbourne Cup Tix on Sale BM58 (1666m)
#16 – Stellar Way – Bet @ Sportsbet
Stellar Way is only a one-win mare, but the four-year-old can take country form into Ipswich.
The daughter of Red Dazzler finished second at Surat last start, and although she faces a rise in class, she gets down in the weights at 51kg.
We wouldn’t be overlooking her chances at a price.
