BEST BET 🏆
Race 1: No.2 I AM GOOD AT THIS ($3.10 with Bet Right)
The Matt Dunn-trained I AM GOOD AT THIS has had just one hiccup in his past seven starts and dropping in grade today, looks set to jump back on the tracks and give this contest a real shake. Last start, the I Am Invincible gelding was on a six-start podium streak when he faced his hardest test to date. With just two career wins (on country tracks) to his name, he took on city class gallopers in a Class 3 Highway Hcp over 1800m at Randwick which proved too big a mountain to climb, finished back in the field, beaten ten lengths on the day. Back to country company today, Dunn slips the tongue tie on here as Zac Wadick is legged aboard for the first time. Already a winner at the trip, he looks far better placed here and will take beating today.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 6: No.8 THEGIRLSGOTTHIS ($6.25 with Bet Right)
The Tony Gollan-trained THEGIRLSGOTTHIS is staring at a hat-trick today and she only needs a good start here to overcome her wide gate and she can take this out. Last start, the Headwater mare made it two-straight when she took out a BM0-58 over 1400m at Gatton. She is up slightly in grade today but faces just her own gender and Angela Jones returns for her third ride on the mare. The four-year-old receives some gate-relief here from several early scratchings as she maps to settle just off the speed today. Winning form is good form and with a bit of luck here, she looks in the mix in this contest.
BEST VALUE 💰
Rac 5: No.8 CHARGED ($12.20 with BoomBet)
Toowoomba galloper CHARGED is no stranger to Ipswich and now in top shelf form, looks a genuine winning chance at odds today. Last start, the Better Than Ready gelding came off a runner-up finish at Dalby when he went one better and recorded his first win on the Ipswich track, beating home a BM0-58 field over 1350m with Cejay Graham on board for the first time. From gate one, Graham had him box-seating to the turn, where soon after he took over and that was all she wrote. He steps up a little in grade today but has Graham sticking with him and rock-hard fit after four runs in, he can give this field a real fright at each-way odds today.
