Ipswich Tips for February 17


BARN FAMILY RESTAURANT QTIS Two-Year-Old Maiden Plate Tips (Race 1)

Ipswich Value Bet - Race 1 No. 3 Red Wave

Ryan Maloney on was the big booking here seeing he has never ridden (or has not in a very long time) for Tony and Maddysen Sears.

There has already been a lot of early market support for this gelding, coming in from doube figures to single figures, so expecting a bold run based from this.

The trial at Toowoomba was okay over 650m and first-up over 800m will be much more to Red Wave's liking.


SCHWEPPES BENCHMARK 70 Handicap Tips (Race 5)

Ipswich Next Best Bet - Race 5 No. 6 Hallsidehankypanky

This filly in a good vein of form having not missed the top in two in her last four starts.

All of the last four outings have come over the 800m journey, and although rolled at odds on two back, she performed incredibly well when up in grade.

Her favourite circuit is Ipswich with her win three back and last starts effort coming over this track and trip, so with the natural early pace, Hallsidehankypanky could lead from start to finish.

TAB VENUE MODE Class 2 Plate Tips (Race 7)

Ipswich Best Bet - Race 7 No. 3 Firebox

This gelding comes into the race fourth-up off the back of a nice win on the Sunshine Coast when he was a well-supported favourite. 

He gets around Ipswich well, having had four starts for a win and two placings, so this is the horse that is setting the benchmark coming into the event,

Barrier five is the perfect draw as jockey James Orman can take the box-seat in running and give Firebox every chance in the last from Ipswich.

Verdict

Firebox won well last start and can keep the form going at a track he loves.

Hallsidehankypanky is in great form over the short trip and clearly performs his best at the Ipswich.

Red Wave has been the subject of early support with a positive jockey booking, so expecting a bold run.
