Due to jump as Ipswich Race 7 at 3:05pm (AEST) this year’s $200,000 Listed Channel 7 Ipswich Cup (2150m) has already had its first scratching with the withdrawal of Tony Gollan’s Toowoomba Cup winner Bang On, the mare accepted for but never a sure starter.

Ipswich Cup betting meanwhile is still dominated by Peter Moody’s grey Italian import Voila Ici who is after their first victory down under after a close third to Quintessential last start in the Group 2 Eagle Farm Cup.

They have drifted out slightly in the markets however from $3.50 to $3.60 and there are a few niggling things working against them like the 60kg topweight and, with the withdrawal of Bang On, the widest gate in the big field.

There’s now just one other single figure fancy too in last start Eagle Farm winner Planetarium ($7.50) getting in on the 54kg minimum with the inside alley, which may or may not work in their favour on the Ipswich circuit.

Other notable hopes in the markets include High Kin ($10) from NZ, last start runner-up to Planetarium Za Magic ($10), veteran nine-year-old Group 1 performer Ginga Dude ($12) and Bang On’s stablemate Topping ($12) looking to improve on their Toowoomba Cup fourth.

But are these ones the really the horses to beat in the Ipswich Cup 2013? Or is there an upset result on the cards for the Queensland punters?

To save you time scrolling through the field we’ve done the hard work for you and come up with the below must know facts and statistics on the Ipswich Cup.
