Ipswich | Rail: True | Good4

Ipswich for a bit of a change this week. Rail is in the true and that’s a decent spot, which allows for fair racing. They do race tight on this track and you do need some luck if you are in behind the leaders on the fence etc.

BI TURBO is clearly better than maiden grade and everything had panned out well until the draw had come out. Showed enough last prep and the recent trial win says he might have just come back a stronger horse. The booking of Byrne is a good one but it will take a Jimmy special from the gate.

ASCOT EXPRESS is another who will be winning races and who returned well fresh this prep. Didn’t mind the race he comes through and the run was that of an upcoming winner.

I feel the best form guide race is the one from the Gold Coast, where BARONIAL and MY SHAMANA went around. BARONIAL was a good run and he beat home MY SHAMANA but I think she turns the table here. Stewart eased her a long way back in a race where they walked up front. She was able to run some of the best splits of the race and did well to finish so close. Obviously she needs to land closer here but she should from the gate. She looks like a 1400m big track horse but this is within her reach. I’ll be having a win bet #16 as I’ve been waiting for her to step out again. Saving #2 if prices allow.

Betting Strategy

BACK (WIN) — My Shamana for 2 units

BACK (WIN) — Ascot Express for 0.75 units

I don’t like tipping/mentioning horses that could win or run last and neither result would surprise. That’s the case with HARMONY NATION. Off the maiden win at Donald you’d have thought it would just go through the grades but it’s turned into a walker. The Waller yard has sent him north and the recent Gold Coast trial was really nice. He has a big, extravagant action that looks better suited on big tracks but he could take a big step forward and I wouldn’t be surprised.

GENUINE AL is the consistent horse who races on speed and comes off a decent win. He’s the one they all have to beat. I’ll just be having him as a result to cover the race.

Betting Strategy

BACK (WIN) — Harmony Nation for 1 unit

BACK (WIN) — Genuine Al for 0.75 units
