A 15 horse field is engaged for this year’s $175,000 Listed Channel 7 Ipswich Cup (2150m) and in the latest markets at Ladbrokes.com.au three of the contenders are at single-figures for the win.

Sort After is the current $3.80 favourite in Ipswich Cup betting, Corey Brown riding the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained Wanted mare.

The four-year-old chases her first win over further than 1700m and hasn’t raced since a black-type second over 2019m at Morphettville in May.

She put in a solid Sunshine Coast trial on June 6 and is well-weighted on Saturday with 54.5kg, only needing luck in running from her awkward barrier 11 draw.

The two heaviest-weighted horses in the Ipswich Cup field are also being kept safe in betting by the bookies with Benzini ($4.50) and Jumbo Prince ($5.50) allocated 60kg and 58kg respectively.

Hong Kong-performed Kiwi raider Benzini has to set a modern-day weight-carrying record with the top kilos, but last year’s Brisbane Cup winner remains in the hunt.

Jumbo Prince meanwhile is out to atone for a last start 12th in the Group 3 Premier’s Cup (2200m) at Eagle Farm from May 27 and with an excellent Ipswich track record looks a livewire chance to do just that.

So will the best in betting get the job done or is there value to be found further down the Ipswich Cup odds this season in the likes of Rob Heathcote’s proven mudlark Kaiser Franz ($18) or last start Sunshine Coast winning Tavistock mare Tessastock ($12)?

Our 2017 Ipswich Cup Trifecta Tip is #4 Kaiser Franz from #2 Jumbo Prince and #7 Magnatune

1st

#4 Kaiser Franz ($18)

Tipping an upset Ipswich Cup result in 2017 with the Heavy-rated track to make the difference. Two back this Brisbane-trained six-year-old took out the Premier’s Cup as a $51 roughie flying home late on a Heavy (8) Eagle Farm track. On a Good (4) in last Saturday’s Brisbane Cup at Doomben he failed to fire running 10th. Heathcote has made an eleventh hour call to run again this Saturday taking advantage of the muddy conditions. The horse will thrive over the distance and conditions, has winning form at the Ipswich track, gets things his way from barrier one and is on the 54kg minimum with Robbie Fradd continuing associations.

2nd

#2 Jumbo Prince ($5.50)

Of the single-figure Ipswich Cup hopes think Jumbo Prince shapes-up as the most likely to salute. Happy to forgive the Michael Nolan-trained stallion for his Premier’s Cup 12th and think he’ll be the big improver getting to Ipswich over a more suitable distance. Has three placings from four runs over the metres and at the track he boasts a win and two seconds, including finishing runner-up to Maurus in the race last year.

3rd

#7 Magnatune ($17)

Great price on offer for Gary Duncan’s proven wet-tracker who comes into the race on the back of a string of nice autumn – winter runs. His Heavy form is outstanding (9-4-1-0) and two back he was runner-up from a wide gate (13 of 13) in the Toowoomba Cup (2000m) as a $31 roughie. Fourth at the Gold Coast over 1800m last time out carrying 57kg and comes back to 54kg for this, drawn well mid-field with Larry Cassidy in the saddle.
