Ipswich horse racing tips & form

Race 1. (13:00) Tab Venue Mode Maiden (1200m)

#2 – Redvedev – Bet @ Sportsbet

The Paul Butterworth-trained colt comes off a trial win at Deagon and he could make a winning debut.

He is a son of Redwood, who is bred to enjoy slightly longer distances, but that shouldn’t stop him from running well here.

2kg comes off his back and he has upside.

Race 2. (13:38) Follow Ipswichturfclub Maiden (1666m)

#9 – Turn Me Over – Bet @ Sportsbet

Turn Me Over did enough on debut at Sunshine Coast to warrant attention. The Chris Waller-trained gelding was only a half-length behind the winner, which is a nice effort.

The son of Turn Me Loose had solid betting support on debut, so we’re expecting to money to come for him again.

Having Larry Cassidy in the saddle is a bonus.

Race 3. (14:13) Sirromet Maiden (1100m)

#1 – Bakuhatsu – Bet @ Sportsbet

Bakuhatsu needs to cope with a wide barrier draw, but the four-year-old gelding has shown good speed to date.

The Edmonds-trained son of Spirit of Boom was only 1.1 lengths behind the winner at Sunshine Coast last start and a repeat of that effort gets it done.

It will be tough from barrier 16, but look for him to push forward and be there in the mix.

Race 4. (14:48) Great Northern BM65 (2150m)

#4 – Scarlet Pimpernel – Bet @ Sportsbet

Scarlet Pimpernel capped off three consecutive placings with a win at Sunshine Coast last start.

The five-year-old got the job done by a nose and it was a deserved win after going so close at Gold Coast and Ipswich.

We expect him to kick on with it now.

Race 5. (15:23) Brunch @ The Barn C2 Handicap (1350m)

#1 – Minjee – Bet @ Sportsbet

We’re keeping the faith with Minjee, who showed excellent ability earlier on in her career.

The four-year-old mare showed a fine turn-of-foot early on before going off the boil, but we saw enough in her most recent effort.

She finished 1.3 lengths behind the winner, so a repeat performance takes her close.

Race 6. (15:58) Schweppes C2 Handicap (1350m)

#2 – Corvo – Bet @ Sportsbet

Corvo made a return to winning form at Sunshine Coast last start and he charged through the field to win by over a length.

The Gollan-trained son of Spirit of Boom is now a two-time winner from 17 starts, which also includes six minor placings.

Getting the inside draw is ideal and we like his chances of winning.

Race 7. (16:33) River 949FM C5 Handicap (1666m)

#1 – Jetty – Bet @ Sportsbet

Jetty opened his account with back-to-back wins this preparation and he can get back to that form on Wednesday.

The four-year-old didn’t handle the rise in class last time out, but he’s classy at best and the four-time winner has upside.

Getting 2kg off his back helps and we wouldn’t be leaving him out.

Race 8. (17:10) Events @ IEEC BM72 (1200m)

#4 – Le Heros – Bet @ Sportsbet

The Paul Duncan-trained gelding won his only start at Ipswich, which came two starts back when scoring by a length.

He is a two-time winner and four-time placegetter from 10 starts, so he’s always around the mark and he goes on top here.

The son of Kermadec drops in class for this race and we like his chances.

Race 9. (17:50) Ray White Ipswich C1 Handicap (1100m)

#9 – Sanzera – Bet @ Sportsbet

Sanzera won impressively on debut at Gold Coast and she could kick on with the job.

The David Vandyke-trained three-year-old had solid betting support and we expect the money to come again.

Barrier two is ideal and punters should get a good sight for their money.
