The Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott trained Ecudaor will carry thee top weight of 60kg and has drawn nicely at barrier two with Tegan Harrison to ride.

Harrison takes over from Tim Clark who was aboard the eight year old last start when ninth to Hopfgarten in the Listed $100,000 The Wayne Wilson (1600m) at Doomben last Saturday.

The front running Ecuador will be right at home on the tight turning Ipswich track and will be hard to run down if let to do his own thing in front.

Tradesman will be trainer Darren Weir’s sole runner in the Ipswich Cup and has drawn midfield at barrier five with Dean Yendall retaining the mount after the pair combined for a second placings last start to Egg Tart in the Group 2 $200,000 Bradford Access Insulation P.J. O’Shea Stakes (2200m) at the Sunshine Coast on June 2.

Chris Waller has accepted with two runners, Tumultuous and My Giuliano, in the Ipswich Cup with mixed results at the barrier draw.

My Giuliano has drawn nicely at barrier four with Michael Cahill booked to ride while Tumultuous has drawn out wide at ten for Corey Brown.

Both stayers have been out of the prizemoney of late with My Giuliano coming off last start sixth over 1800m at the Gold Coast on May 23 while Tumultuous was a well beaten ninth in the Group 3 $125,000 Channel Seven Premier’s Cup (2200m) at Doomben on May 26.

Smart As You Think stepped up to a middle distance weight for age race for the first time last start and wasn’t disgraced to finish fourth to Egg Tart in the P.J. O’Shea Stakes and looks well placed in the Ipswich Cup.

The John McArdie trained mare has drawn barrier nine with James Orman in the saddle again.
