2013 Ipswich Cup Day – Best Bets

Queensland winter carnival action heads west of Brisbane this Saturday for an action-packed nine-race card for 2013 Ipswich Cup Day.

Heading the program is of course the Ipswich Cup where Peter Moody’s classy import Voila Ici is a $3.50 favourite despite being asked to defy history and carry 60kg to victory.

Despite having a touch of class, the price looks a touch short and there are a host of horses down in the weights that have every chance of toppling the favourite. Among those fancied in the market are last-start winner Planetarium ($7) and Kiwi stayer High Kin ($9).

The Cup is one of three black-type races on the card, with the Gai Waterhouse Classic (1350m) and the Eye Liner Stakes (1350m) both sure to generate plenty of interest.

Classy filly Peron heads betting at $3.80 in her stakes debut in the Gai Waterhouse while another three-year-old, Dances On Stars, is a $3.50 Eye Liner favourite.

It might not be Stradbroke or Doomben 10,000 day but a winner’s a winner and the day is always a popular one with punters.

Best Bet

Race 6 – #11 Peron $3.50

A filly with a touch of class who is third-up after beating the older horses convincingly at her last two starts. Granted she rises in class but her performances this campaign have been faultless and a career record of five wins from six starts shows she knows how to get the job done. Barrier six will help her find a good position on a sometimes tricky track and on the minimum of 54kg she has a weight advantage over the older horses.

The Cup

Race 7 – #14 Planetarium $7

Drawn the inside which can sometimes be a negative but the winner did come from this alley last year. Distance suits third-up after winning over 1800m at Eagle Farm two weeks ago. Will carry the minimum of just 54kg, 6kg less than the favourite. Brenton Avdulla travels up from Sydney to assume the ride.

Best Roughie

Race 7 – #4 Rialya $21

Tipping Adelaide stayer Rialya to run a big race in the Cup. Trainer Lloyd Kennewell deliberately bypassed the Brisbane Cup as he wanted to keep the sprint in his legs for what is his major winter assignment. Hasn’t won since the 2012 Adelaide Cup but definitely has the ability to be in the finish. Fit and ready fourth-up here.
