Ipswich Turf Club is set to host a monster 10-race card on Friday, and HorseBetting.com.au’s tipping experts have you covered with their best bets and free quaddie selections for the meeting. The card is set to be run on a Good 4 with the rail out 4.5m for the entire course, and the first race is set to jump at 10:42am AEST.
Ipswich Best Bet: Hinged
Michael Nolan sends his two-year-old filly Hinged to Ipswich on the back of a narrow defeat at the Sunshine Coast on June 13 where she was overhauled late after leading the field up. The daughter of Worthy Cause has shown plenty of early barrier speed, allowing her to hunt for the rails and then dictate terms. In her four starts she is yet to finish outside of the quinella, and with Jim Byrne on board we expect the pair to set the pace throughout and prove too classy for their rivals over the 1350m. Hinged has raced at 1300m in the past, running second to The Stifmeister at Eagle Farm, and if she brings that form, she is a clear best bet on the Ipswich card.
Next Best at Ipswich: Fighting Commando
The Neil Hocking-trained Fighting Commando comes to Ipswich on the back of a runner-up performance at the Sunshine Coast on June 13 where he chased home a smart winner. His run prior to that effort was thoroughly impressive on the eye at the Sunshine Coast when railing nicely to find a split in the home straight and then bolting clear to win by over three lengths on May 28. Apprentice Minonette Kennedy retains the ride, and her 2kg claim gets them in with just 57kg. From barrier six, expect Kennedy to settle her mount with cover and then ask for an effort at the top of the straight. With even luck, the four-year-old Fighting Sun gelding should continue his good from and bring up another win.
Ipswich Value Bet: Crown War
The Garry Hutchesson-trained Crown War has been racing in strong enough form in Northern NSW to suggest she could take some beating on her third trip to Ipswich. Although she faded late at her last start at Ballina on June 14, the three-year-old filly had finished inside the top three in each of her three runs to begin her campaign. Having raced over 1590m at Ballina, she returns to 1400m here, a distance she tasted success at two runs back at Casino on May 28. We expect Andrew Spinks to take up the running, and if the filly brings her recent form across the border, she will take some catching in the second leg of the quaddie.
