Ipswich Tips 10/03/2023

Our form expert provides Ipswich tips for today’s horse racing at Ipswich Racecourse and gives his best bets.



Race 4:  No.9  KAT CHINNA  ($4.40 with Palmerbet)

It will be a mad dash here over the short sprint course with Sunshine Coast galloper KAT CHINNA looking a genuine winning chance in this field. Last start, the Magnus gelding was first-up off a lengthy five-month absence when he beat all but one home in a BM62 Hcp over 1000m on his home track. With Taylor Marshall aboard, he ran a new personal best that day, covering the 1klm trip, 1 length slower than benchmark, still the best effort in this field. He gets the gun-run from gate one today and maps to settle just behind the pace as Marshall sticks with him. Already a winner when second-up, he looks winning material in this contest.



Race 2:  No.4  MISHANI KINGDOM  ($7 with Neds)

It’s Mishani madness here with three of the eight runners bearing the name as we run with the Les Ross-trained MISHANI KINGDOM to finish ahead of them all today. Last start, the Domesday gelding was second-up when he came off his Maiden win and wasn’t disgraced when finishing fourth in a BM60 Hcp over 1400m at Gatton. He finished off well, running his last 600m, 8.5 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best last-start effort here. Cody Collis has the reins today and after the claim, the three-year-old carries less weight than last start. Stepping up in distance today, he will strip even fitter after those two runs this time in and looks in the mix for victory here.



Race 9:  No.4  PRINCESS BOJACK  ($12 with Palmerbet)

The Michael Nolan-trained PRINCESS BOJACK is a track specialist here and with a new rider on board today, looks a genuine winning chance at odds. Last start, the Flying Artie mare settled too far back but still finished off well to grab fifth prize in a Class 6 Plate over 1050m at Doomben. She comes back to Ipswich today where her five starts at the track and distance have resulted in two wins and as many minor placings. Her seven starts at the track have ended with three wins and two other podium finishes so she clearly has a liking for the circuit. This event should be a little easier to compete in and the mare geta all the favours here as she draws gate one today. Currently at double-figures with the bagmen, she looks ‘overs’ with that resume and is well worth an each-way ticket here.
