Voila Ici Clear Ipswich Cup Betting Favourite

Peter Moody’s Italian import Voila Ici hasn’t won for his Australian trainer but that hasn’t stopped the bookies installing him as favourite for Saturday’s $200,000 2013 Ipswich Cup (2150m).

The grey front-runner has had nine starts for Moody without tasting success but has opened a $3.50 for Saturday’s Queensland feature race.

The eight-year-old is coming off an Eagle Farm Cup third and is a clear favourite in the Ipswich Cup market, with last-start winner Planetarium the next best at $7.

Planetarium, from the stable of Sydney trainer Gerald Ryan, has drawn barrier one for his attempt to make it two wins in a row after scoring at Eagle Farm on June 1.

Ryan admits it is a step up this weekend but believes he has earned his right to have a crack at stakes grade.

“This is a step up for him but if he can do well then that also opens up the options for him,” Ryan said.

The only other runner under double figures is New Zealand mare High Kin who is considered a $9 chance.

The five-year-old is a Listed winner in New Zealand and heads into his Australian debut on the back of a runner-up finish over 2100m at Te Rapa last month. Any rain in Queensland is expected to improve the daughter of High Chaparral’s chances.

Out to turn the tables on Planetarium will be Brian Smith’s seven-year-old Za Magic ($10) who was a narrow runner-up when they met last start.

Sharing the next line of betting at $12 are consistent Queenslander Topping, veteran gelding Ginga Dude and four-year-old mare Secret Garden.

Others in the Ipswich market include Group 1 winner Zabeelionaire ($14), former Adelaide Cup winner Rialya ($19) and Toowoomba Cup winner Bang On ($21).
