Ipswich again hosts midweek racing in Queensland, with eight races to be run and won from 1:04pm AEST on Wednesday afternoon. The track is currently rated a Soft 5, with the rail out +8m for the entirety of the course. Let’s take a look at some of the best bets on offer at Australia’s top online bookmakers.
Tony Gollan and Baylee Nothdurft combine with four-year-old mare Tracy May after she finished second to Le Palmier at Toowoomba last start. She has never missed the places second up and looked to need the run first up, so she should be much fitter here. Barrier three should see her box seat and prove too strong over the 1200m.
We’ve tipped this gelding numerous times now, and he finally gets in a race where he should simply win. Ryan Wiggins heads west to Ipswich for the three rides, all for Garnett Taylor, and this looks by far the best of them after scratching the four-year-old from race two in preference for this much easier 1100m Class 1. We dare say from barrier two Wiggo will let the likes of Buckets Of Pride cross to lead, box seat and finish over the top of them late. Bold Hunter has been knocking on the door and can win here.
Another from the Gollan stable, Nashwah looks ready to win here at start number three. He is a horse we’ve been waiting to see the blinkers go on, given he has looked a bit green and fails to switch on. Top jockey Georgie Cartwright hops on again to utilise her claim, and they draw a barrier that will see them stroll over to settle midfield on the outside. There is a bit of a price about this horse third up, so we can be confident with an each-way bet. By Toronado, he trialled well before his debut run and wasn’t awful in his first two starts. This looks his race.
