Ipswich Tips December 24

CARPET COURT IPSWICH Maiden Handicap Tips (Race 2)

Ipswich Best Bet - Race 2 No. 3 Wild And Ready

Following a maiden preparation where he was competitive without winning, the Kelly Schweida-trained Wild And Ready has trialled extremely well for his second campaign.

After finishing fourth in three consecutive races on wet tracks, the four-year-old mare by Wild Storm found dry ground for the first time in her trial at Doomben, making strong ground behind Missy Em.

Drawn barrier eight, Ron Stewart will likely take a sit in the second half of the field and already boasting a strong partnership with Kelly Schweida, will be looking to continue their hot form aboard Wild And Ready.


Ipswich Next Best Bet - Race 3 No. 2 Steel Pier

Already boasting a terrific run in the Group 3 Rough Habit during the winter carnival, Steel Pier returned to form at the Gold Coast last start in a last to first victory rarely seen at the track.

A four-year-old son of Pierro, the Tony Gollan trained gelding thrived when stepping out over further ground last preparation, finishing one-and-a-half lengths off Navy Cross at the Sunshine Coast before finishing sixth in the Rough Habit over 2200m as well, finishing three-and-a-half lengths off Ballistic Boy.

Despite drawing barrier three, expect Kyle Wilson-Taylor to settle Steel Pier at the rear of the field, saving him up for one last effort late as one of the best bets of the day.

TAB VENUE MODE Fillies and Mares Class 1 Handicap Tips (Race 8)

Ipswich Value Bet - Race 8 No. 11 Semifox

After finally stepping up to the mile last start at Eagle Farm, the Desleigh Forster-trained filly was brave chasing home a couple of well touted milers in Highlights and Two Smokin Barrels.

Third-up this preparation, the three-year-old by Foxwedge battled on bravely at Eagle Farm after the leaders fell back into her lap, sustaining strong sectionals home when finding clear air.

Drawn perfectly to take full advantage of the draw from barrier three, the step up in distance should suit Semifox and with Mark Du Plessis staying aboard, looks well placed to run a massive race.
