Ipswich continues to have a lot of work and with relatively small fields it is holding up well. As always the early pace of races here are the key factor. There looks to be that in most races.

No2 SWEET CAVIAR (BEST ROUGHIE) Recent form in the south not flash but she has raced well this area in previous campaigns. We liked her recent trial and she should be value odds here.
No12 POWER OF DIVAS
VALUE RUNNER: No2 SWEET CAVIAR
No10 SPLITZ First starter who has a big wrap on him. Won two trials in very good fashion. Has accepted in two races but looks likely to start here.
No1 CALL THE COPPERS Has a bad barrier but better form than these. Has trialled solidly for his comeback run.
No2 FLIM FLAN MAN Caught the eye with a Gold Coast trial win. Is having his first start here.
No13 A LITTLE WICKED An emergency here but should get a run. Always an each-way hope these races.
VALUE RUNNER: No2 FLIM FLAN MAN
No2 CATALINA MISS Has been racing very well in this class with placings three of four runs. Looks too good for these if has any luck.
No8 BIMINI ROAD Trialled well before first-up fourth at the Sunshine Coast. Is better than that run.
No3 EUCHARIST First starter who has been solid in two trials leading into this.
No5 NATURAL FORCE First starter who is related to some smart horses. Nice trial at the Gold Coast recently.
VALUE RUNNER: No8 BIMINI ROAD
No7 LEDOYEN (BEST BET) This is a weak race and he has been about the place past few starts in similar events. First try at this distance but should handle it and looks hard to beat.
No5 EQUISTAR Should find this distance and class more to his liking than recent efforts.
No12 PROUDER Tries hard and never far away in these type of races. Each-way again.
No8 DAGGA BOY Northern rivers and Gold Coast form is good enough to be a major player here.
VALUE RUNNER: No12 PROUDER
No9 SO INVINCIBLE (NEXT BEST BET) Looks better than this field. Drawn the inside barrier and should get the run of the race. Has raced against some more than handy horses without being disgraced.
No1 CASCATA ROSSA Looks the main danger here after strong last start second at the Gold Coast.
No4 OUR NICK Stepping up in class after first-start win in a maiden but shows promise.
No10 THE OVERDRAFT Has had a few chances but recent form gives him some hope here.
VALUE RUNNER: No4 OUR NICK
