BEST BET 🏆
Race 9: No.3 THORPE ($3.10 with Unibet)
Annabel Neasham saddles-up THORPE here as her only runner for the meeting and yet to miss a podium finish in five starts, looks the testing material here today. Last start, the well-bred Fastnet Rock gelding came off a hat-trick of minor placings when he finished best to claim a Class 1 Hcp over 1400m at the Sunshine Coast. Ryan Maloney was aboard for his first ride on the three-year-old that day and got the job done in fine style. Maloney sticks with him here as the galloper makes his Ipswich debut today. A very promising type with plenty of upside, he looks the best of the day.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 4: No.6 CRAZY TRAIN ($4.80 with Ladbrokes)
The Matt Dunn-trained CRAZY TRAIN has excelled in her only two starts here and looks poised for another top shelf effort today. Last start, the Bull point mare was a big drifter in the markets ($5 – $10) but still managed to finish best and take out a BM68 Hcp over 1200m at Doomben. That’s two wins from four starts this preparation as she comes off city class company and lines up here already a track and distance winner. Rock-hard fit off four starts this preparation, she draws gate two here and should enjoy a sit off the pace in the small field. Andrew Mallyon steered her to victory on this track first-up this time in and has the reins again today. All boxes ticked, she will take beating here.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 6: No.10 PICK ZA BEANS ($4.40 with BoomBet)
The Jack Bruce-trained PICK ZA BEANS returns from city-based racing and looks well placed here to continue on with her good track form today. Last start, the Spill The Beans mare was up in weight and drew wide when she finished mid-mid in a BM65 over the mile at Doomben. Prior to that run, she had two wins and a minor placing next to her name, with both wins coming here on the Ipswich track. She faces country competition today and is down in weight for this contest. Samantha Collett sticks with her after steering the four-year-old to two victories from her six rides to date. She gets all the favours from gate one today and looks a serious contender for the major prize.
