Ipswich Race 1 Tips | 11:48 PM | 1666m
Top Tip – Nicks
Jockey: Jake Bayliss | Trainer: Stu Kendrick
Nice daughter of former top sprinter Pierro coming off a fast finishing win over Just A Patsy 1400m Sunshine Coast last run. Came from near last before when close 4th Igor 1200m Gold Coast. Has an awkward gate in small field but sure to be running on well. Rates highly.
Place Tip – Treasure Of Gold
Jockey: Mark Du Plessis | Trainer: Mick Nolan
In good form winning two of past three. Led most of the way last time when held off Winter Rain to score by 2 lengths after finishing 4.6 lengths 4th Little Miss Pixie 1110m Toowoomba 10 days before. Deserves his chance in town. Consider.
Top 4 Tip – Igor
Jockey: Andrew Mallyon | Trainer: Kacy Fogden
Expecting him to get the run of the race if can cross from widest gate. Has enough toe to sit midfield after flashed home to beat Daring Man by 1.75 lengths 12100mn Gold Coast Maiden June 26. That was first run since February and bound to strip a lot fitter here.
Ipswich Race 2 Tips | 12:23 PM | 16666m
Top Tip – Barefoot
Jockey: Mark Du Plessis | Trainer: Tony & Maddy Sears
Giving her another chance in this after had every hope for 3.1 length 8th The Kingdom 1840m Eagle Farm last outing. Go on previous 1.3 length 4th Sure Knee 1630m Group 3 Sapphire Doomben last month. Should fight out finish.
Place Tip – Mangione
Jockey: Michael Cahill | Trainer: Chris Waller
Liked his win three runs back 1815m Eagle Farm June 6 before close 4th Milk Man heavy track Doomben two weeks later. Was doing best late when 0.6 length 3rd The Kingdom 1840m Eagle Farm last time out. Watch for him late. Big show.
Top 4 Tip – Milk Man
Jockey: Ryan Maloney | Trainer: Matthew Smith
Interesting decision not to claim with 61kgs. Connections sticking with last start winner Ryan Maloney who steered him to 0.2 length win over Top Prospect 1615m Doomben heavy track June 20. Placed previous two this area since coming from Sydney and looks big threat again.
Ipswich Race 3 Tips | 12:58 PM | 2150m
Top Tip – Kaonic
Jockey: Mark Du Plessis | Trainer: Chris Waller
Looks the pick of three Waller runners in this. Having only second run this area when worked home strongly for 2.1 length 5th Another Dollar 2200m Doomben Group 3 Premiers Cup last month. Hard to gauge where he maps but expect he’ll be in second half of field and full of running. Hard to beat.
Place Tip – Le Juge
Jockey: Michael Cahill | Trainer: Chris Waller
Backmarker who came from second last on turn for 2.25 length 6th Another Dollar 2200m Doomben Group 3 Premiers Cup last time out. Big win three runs back in 2000m Doomben Group 3 Chairmans in May. Will be right in finish.
Top 4 Tip – Alward
Jockey: Luke Dittman | Trainer: Chris Waller
Chased most of the way and fought on strongly latest 1.5 length 3rd Another Dollar 2200m Doomben Premier’s Cup June 27. Was doing best late previously when close 4th Le Juge 2000m Doomben Group 3 Chairmans May 30. Must be considered.
Ipswich Race 4 Tips | 1:33 PM | 1200m
Top Tip – Langhro
Jockey: Justin Huxtable | Trainer: Steve O’dea
Facing big drop in distance to 1200m after latest effort when led and weakened 8.6 length 7thy La Pula 1400m Doomben in May. Previous form was mixed but was an impressive trial winner Tuesday and has won three times this trip. Giving him another chance.
Place Tip – Pinnacle Star
Jockey: Stephanie Thornton | Trainer: David Vandyke
Ultra consistent with win and four placings past five runs. Went down 0.2 lengths when finished fast for 2nd to Love Squirrels 1200m Doomben last time out. Only start this track was runner-up Connoisseur 1200m May 17. Overdue for a win.
Top 4 Tip – Secret Spirit
Jockey: Ryan Maloney | Trainer: David Vandyke
Has got plenty of speed. Led last two starts when 4.2 length 4th Qiji Phoenix 1200m Doomben Dec 18 before spelled after length 2nd Clockwise 1200m Gold Coast Magic Millions Country Cup. Has won first-up and is a winner this track. Likely to lead and will take catching.
Ipswich Race 5 Tips | 2:12 PM | 1350m
Top Tip – Wren’s Day
Jockey: Andrew Mallyon | Trainer: James Cummings
Found the line strongly last time out when beaten 1.25 length 2nd Soxagon 1350m Doomben June 27. Failed badly previous run Randwick but has improved since coming north. Only has two wins for Godolphin but maps to get a good run off pace. Rates highly.
Place Tip – Right Or Wrong
Jockey: Mark Du Plessis | Trainer: Lindsay Gough
Saved for this instead of heading north for Friday’s Rockhampton Cup. Sat off pace most of the way when 2.7 length 3rd Inquiry 1350m Doomben Listed Chief De Beers last month. His win three runs back at Doomben in May was first for four years. Has loads of ability and has strong claims.
Top 4 Tip – Elixir
Jockey: Justin Huxtable | Trainer: Les Kelly
Up in weight even with claim following dominant 1.8 length win over Solar Star 1200m Eagle Farm last outing. Just edged out by The Kingdom Come 1300m Eagle Farm two runs back and should travel just off the speed. Looks a big threat again.
Ipswich Race 6 Tips | 2:52 PM | 1200m
Top Tip – Maddi Rocks
Jockey: Ryan Maloney | Trainer: Chris Waller
Useful type from the Chris Waller yard. Far from disgraced first run this region when 1.4 length 4th Euro Belle 1200m Eagle Farm two weeks ago. That was first run since February when failed Warwick Farm 1400m heavy track. Bound to be an improver and likely to figure in finish.
Place Tip – Vincere Volare
Jockey: Andrew Mallyon | Trainer: Kacey Fogden
Got a great run in behind speed last time when finished fast to beat Aggravate by 3.5 lengths 1100m Gold Coast last month. Got too far out of ground previously when 2.7 length 7th Hi Fiver 1050m Doomben in May. Maps to get a good run again and could make presence felt.
Top 4 Tip – Voila
Jockey: Luke Dittman | Trainer: Chris Waller
Caught the eye at first run in Qld when finished fast for 1.6 length 4th Star of Michelin 1400m Eagle Farm two weeks ago. Beat two home before but wasn’t far off them when 3.1 length 8th Stella Sea Sun 1200m Randwick heavy track last month. Expect her to take a lot of improvement for this. One of the chances.
Ipswich Race 7 Tips | 3:32 PM | 1200m
Top Tip – Pennino
Jockey: Jim Byrne | Trainer: Darryl Hansen
Jim Byrne is a key booking in this. Quality mare who worked home strongly latest outing when 2.5 length 3rd Jami Lady 1200m Eagle Farm Listed Bright Shadow July 4. Started fav on heavy track before when 3.4 length 6th Jadentom 1110m Doomben. Has won at Listed level and rates highly.
Place Tip – Boomsara
Jockey: Brad Stewart | Trainer: Chris Munce
Tried to lead all the way but fought on strongly latest run when 1.6 length 4th Signore Fox 1200m Grafton Ramornie July 8. Bound to take a lot of improvement second run back since 11th Outback Barbie 1300m Gold Coast Magic Millions QTIS in January. Should lead and take a lot of running down.
Top 4 Tip – Bandipur
Jockey: Jag Gutmann-Chester | Trainer: Kellie Purdy
Had every hope but not disgraced 2.3 length 10th Signore Fox 1200m Grafton Ramornie July 8. Caught the eye previous run when flashed home late for 1.2 length 2nd behind In Good Time 1200m Listed Ascot Eagle Farm in June. Don’t dismiss.
Ipswich Race 8 Tips | 4:08 PM | 1350m
Top Tip – Roman Aureus
Jockey: Jackson Murphy | Trainer: Brian Wakefield
Looks to have a bright future after two wins past three. Won 1200m Maiden three runs back Gold Coast then latest effort started fav when beat Hail Manhattan by less than one length 1350m Doomben July 1. Nicely drawn and maps to get a good run off speed. Go close.
Place Tip – Stuttering
Jockey: Mark Du Plessis | Trainer: Rob Heathcote
In good form with two wins last three. Sat off speed to beat River Rocket by one length two runs back 1200m Doomben heavy track then just went down in three-way photo when 3rd Euro Belle 1200m Eagle Farm July 4. Likely to lead here from good draw and will take running down.
Top 4 Tip – Chicago Milagro
Jockey: Jim Byrne | Trainer: Tony Gollan
Has had three runs back this campaign and was an easy 5.3 length winner two runs ago this track. Same most of the way since when beaten only 1.6 length when 6th to Euro Belle 1200m Eagle Farm two weeks ago. Has strong claims.
Ipswich Race 9 Tips | 4:44 PM | 1350m
Top Tip – Jami Lady
Jockey: Boris Thornton | Trainer: Steve O’dea
Has great record with seven wins from 19 starts and won only start this track. Impressive beating Ozark 1000m Eagle Farm June 6 then freshened up when led all the way downing Fiesta by 2.3 lengths in 1200m Listed Bright Shadow Eagle Farm July 4. Drawn perfectly and hard to catch.
Place Tip – Multaja
Jockey: Michael Cahill | Trainer: James Cummings
Godolphin mare who made up a stack of ground latest outing beaten 2.9 lengths 6th Jami Lady 1200m Listed Bright Shadow Eagle Farm July 4. That was a repeat of previous 1.5 length 5th Shalwa 1350m Listed Coughlan Doomben in May. Will give this a big shake from nice draw.
Top 4 Tip – Solar Star
Jockey: Robbie Fradd | Trainer: Tony Gollan
Talented mare with win, three placings past four. Fought all the way last time when 1.8 length 2nd Elixir 1200m Eagle Farm July 4. Sat off speed before when proved too strong with 1.25 length win Amicitia 1300mn Eagle Farm in June. Likely leader who should give a ton of cheek.
