Thirteen gallopers are accepted to face off in this year’s $175,000 Listed Channel 7 Ipswich Cup (2150m), the handicap clash running as Ipswich Race 6 at 3:17pm (AEST).

Heading the Ipswich Cup field and weights with 59kg is the now Bevan Laming-trained Banca Mo, winner of the Listed Mornington Cup (2200m) back in late February.

The Tough Speed seven-year-old comes off two subsequent unplaced runs however when 11th in the Group 1 Doomben Cup (2000m) and then dead last (10th) beaten nearly six lengths in the Listed Spear Chief Handicap (1630m) over an unsuitably short distance in Brisbane on May 30.

Despite giving all the weight away to his dozen rivals, connections of Banca Mo are hoping the step back up in distance suits this Saturday as the gelding has his first look at the notoriously tight Ipswich circuit.

The second heaviest weighted Ipswich Cup hopeful this year is then Andrew Williamson’s in-form Darci Be Good (57kg) from the Sunshine Coast who is drawn one outside of Banca Mo (5) in barrier six.

A six-year-old son of Darci Brahma, Darci Be Good comes off three top three runs including a third behind Frespanol when beaten only a neck in the Spear Chief last time out.

He has winning form up to 2040m though and so the extra metres of the Ipswich Cup should be a non-issue with top Queensland hoop Damian Browne retaining the ride.

The next highest-rated and weighted hope is then Robert Heathcote’s widely-drawn Volkhere, the on-pace runner with work to do to cross from barrier 12 of 13.

Tegan Harrison rides the Dehere gelding again after four straight runs on him this time in including a third to Epingle in the Group 3 Chairman’s Handicap (2200m) at the Gold Coast in April and a second behind subsequent Doomben Cup winner Ponrichet in the Toowoomba Cup (2150m) in early May.

He has been unplaced in his two most recent runs however when eighth in the Listed Caloundra Cup (2400m) on May 16 and fifth last time out, albeit beaten only one and a quarter lengths in the Group 2 Brisbane Cup (2200m) at Doomben just last Saturday.

Volkhere had only 53kg on his back in the Brisbane Cup, won by Jetset Lad in an upset, however and goes up to 55.5kg this weekend on the short seven day back-up.

The only other galloper in the line-up weighted over the 54kg minimum is then the Tony Gollan-trained Hi Son (54.5kg) drawn in gate 11 with veteran jockey Jim Byrne in the saddle.

Gollan won last year’s Ipswich Cup with Brave Ali (2014) and so shoots for successive wins in the feature this winter with Husson five-year-old Hi Son who comes off a fifth to Faust in the Group 3 Premier’s Cup (2020m) at Doomben on May 23 when carrying a kilo more than his allocated weight on the weekend.

Dually represented in the Ipswich Cup field with two acceptors is the Gold Coast’s Bruce Hill who saddles-up in-form Husson mare Miss Husson and fellow last start winner Vodnik.

A winner of two of her past three starts, four-year-old Miss Husson jumps from barrier 10 with apprentice Matthew McGuren in the saddle on Saturday.

She comes off a Class 5 win over 1800m at the Sunshine Coast from June 3, the same hoop in the saddle, where she had the rails run from barrier one but carried 2.5kg more than her weight in the Ipswich Cup.

Vodnik meanwhile has Glen Colless riding from barrier seven, the Irish-bred son of Zaminda having won the Murwillumbah Cup Prelude (1800m) last time out on May 31.

Also coming off a last start victory along with Hill’s stablemates are the Team Meagher-trained Shotover River with the outside alley on Saturday and Bryan Guy’s Shovhog six-year-old Noisy Ocean (barrier eight) who both won over 1800m at the Gold Coast in their final Ipswich Cup lead-ups.
