Ipswich Tips - January 12

Race 1 - 12:35PM BLUE DOG TRAINING QTIS Three-Years-Old Maiden Plate (1666 METRES)
Runner-up at his past two starts, RICHEST is racing well enough to break his maiden here. Two starts back, found one much better when three lengths second behind Hekansplit at Beaudesert. Then last start, the Jet Spur gelding was trapped deep from his wide gate (11 of 12), which saw jockey, Frater-Hill eventually push forward to lead. Battled it out with Miss Sizz in the run home, finishing second again, beaten a nose on the line. Drawn wide again here but does step up in distance, allowing more time to cross and settle. He has plenty of fight at the end of his races. Looks the one they have to beat.

Race 5 - 3:00PM ACE ELECTRICAL & LIGHTING Class 5 Plate (1350 METRES)
Coming off two minor placings, I WANNA BE A JEEP looks the likely leader and will take catching here. First-up, had it won everywhere but right on the line when nailed by a fast finishing Lulu Express. The five-year-old gelding jumped from gate 10 that day and carried 59kgs. Last start it was déjà vu where he led all the way but was caught on the line, conceding weight to the first two past the post. Third-up here, he will strip a lot fitter and has won third-up. There is a bit of early speed here so settling positions could decide the finish. He comes in better at the weights this time and will be there at the finish again.

Race 7 - 4:25PM SWIFTS 100TH ANNIVERSARY Ratings Band 0 - 62 Handicap (1350 METRES)
Hard to go past winning form here and COLPO DI TAMBURO is certainly amongst that. Three starts back, the Drumbeats gelding held off all challenges to win a class 1 at Toowoomba over 1000m with Shannon Apthorpe in the saddle. Then after finding the class 2 competition a little tough on this track, the four-year-old bounced back big time and destroyed his opposition at Warwick last start winning a BM58 by more than six lengths. Up slightly in grade here, but four starts into this preparation he is at his peak and with Apthorpe back aboard, he can match it with them here.

Race 2 - 1:18PM IPSWICH RACING MUSEUM ROOM HIRE Class 3 Plate (1666 METRES) 
Finishing just behind the money at his past four, CAPEOS has been racing well enough to win a race of this calibre. He enjoyed a victory over Iowa five starts back at Beaudesert then was a very unlucky second behind Ponytales at Doomben, beaten a whisker on the line. Last start led the field into the straight and looked the winner until he was run down over the final 100m in a class 3 over 1660m. He’s back to have another crack at the same class and distance and looks well placed to crack it here.
Result (2nd)

Race 3 - 1:53PM CARLTON MID Maiden Handicap (1666 METRES)
A bridesmaid on five occasions to date, LOLA’S DIAMOND must be wondering what she has to do to break this maiden curse. Last she climbed to the 1350m trip and missed the start, settling last. She pushed her way through a narrow gap and ran home well, beating all but Conquer The Stars to the line. Trainer Kelly Schweida has pushed her out to the mile here and will leg aboard Glen Colless who finished second on the four-year-old mare at the Gold Coast in June last year. She has drawn well again (gate 3), and if she can jump with them and settle early, maybe she gets the job done here.
Result (1st - $2.60)

Race 6 - 3:48PM QUEENSLAND TIMES BenchMark 85 Handicap (1000 METRES)  
First-up after six months in the paddock, SPURCRAFT resumes here and already looks the one to beat. This Jet Spur gelding has been very lightly raced with just nine visits to the racetrack, but he has collected the winner’s purse on six occasions. He ended his last preparation with a big win in class 4 company at the Gold Coast before jumping to class 6 grade at Doomben only to win that as well, beating home Malvern Estate and My Girl Hayley over 1110m. Unbeaten first-up, he will look to lead and it will take a big effort here to run him down on fresh legs.
Result (2nd)

August 18

Race 2 - 1:03PM CCM INSTALLATIONS Class 3 Plate (800 METRES)
Fresh from five months in the paddock, VICEMAN has the edge on most of the field here and looks well placed over the 800m dash. First-up last campaign he finished second behind the talented Prue’s Angel (who is undefeated in her present campaign). A win three starts later in BM70 company puts him right in this. The Denman gelding is yet finish worse than second when fresh and the short trip here looks ideal for the five-year-old. Scratched from race five to run here, he looks the testing material.
Result (Won - $2.40)

Race 5 - 2:48PM MIHI CREEK TAVERN Class 5 Handicap (1000 METRES)
Another topweight who looks placed to win is the Stuart Kendrick-trained MISERY. Spelled for two months after a disappointing Sydney campaign, the Natural Destiny gelding showed a better attitude when first-up on the Gold Coast. Although well beaten to the line, he did finish third and clearly needed the run. He will find this a little easier and his resume shows he is a two-time winner when second-up and has three victories over the 1000m trip. That puts him right in the mix here.
Result (Won - $2.70)

Race 6 - 3:28PM IPSWICH CITY BULLS FOOTBALL CLUB Class 2 Handicap (1200 METRES)
Helen Page has a smart one in her stables with TOO EASY BRO lining up here and looks right in the mix. First-up this preparation he led all the way in a class 1 at Murwillumbah then followed that up finishing third over 1100m at Lismore when rising in grade. His latest effort at the Sunshine Coast saw him draw wide and had to do some work early to cross and lead. He then struggled on the heavy track to finish unplaced that day. He has since trialled at the Gold Coast and finished third under a good hold and not pushed. Coming off a six-week freshen-up, expect a bold front running effort here. 
Result (Unplaced)
