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.
