20th October

Ipswich | Rail: +9.5m Entire Course | Good 4

Just the seven races to choose from and not big fields make it hard to find decent prices. Here are a couple of races that could be worth small plays.

ILLICIATE AFFAIRS is impossible to catch but 800m around Ipswich suits and has won this track/trip. Was wide the trip when resuming but stopped as if shot in the straight. Hard to have off that but watch the market with this stable.

DELUSIONAL went very hard at first Qld run and the effort was ok considering. Next time out just got a horrible run in transit and just forget that. Lightweight here and she should be able to get a far better run in transit. At the $5 she might be the value.

DARE TO SHARE is the consistent horse. Races well everywhere but Ipswich is his favourite track for sure. He hasn’t got the early speed but should be within a few lengths and if the track is anywhere near fair he gets his chance to run over them late.

Trying to guess prices, I’d be leaning a small win bet DELUSIONAL. No doubt DARE TO SHARE is the one to beat but odds on worries me and may even start shorter.

Betting Strategy

BACK (WIN) — Delusional for 0.75 units

MARRIED TO THE MOB is going as well as ever and races best on this track. Has the early speed to land in the first two pairs and handles all ground. He’s the one who shouldn’t have any excuses and gets every possible chance. The 3kg claim is also positive on the soft ground.

VAPOURIZING is also in career-best form but is usually a get-back horse and will need a very good ride with the rail out so far. Does have the right bloke on top though and scratching’s make less traffic.

A few other chances but it’s a small play #2 for me here.

Betting Strategy

BACK (WIN) — Married To The Mob for 1 unit
