Our Ipswich Horse Racing Tips for the weekend.

Milk Man (Ipswich Race 2 No. 1)
This six-year-old gelding has been going well this campaign. He led coming to the home turn but was run down in the final 100m to finish 0.8 lengths 2nd over 1800m at Gold Coast on 16 May where he put a big gap on the rest of the field, then he hit the front at the 250m and hung on for a 0.2 length win over 1615m at Doomben on a heavy track on 20 June. He looks well-suite here and should win again.


How to pick a winner

Each Way

Hollaback Girl (Ipswich Race 6 No. 2):
With 3 starts from 3 runs at this track it is clear this Your Song mare trained by Tony Gollan likes to race here. She won a BM 72 over 1200m at Doomben before over-racing then fading late to finish 2.1 lengths 6th over 1200m at Eagle farm on 23 May. Last start she was caught wide early but led into the home turn and held on for a narrow o.1 length win over 1200m at Ipswich on a soft track on 17 June.  She shouild go well here again and is a solid each-way bet at double-figure odds.


Best Lay

Boomsara (Ipswich Race 7 No. 4):
This Spirit Of Boom gelding is the early favourite in the Listed Eye Liner Stakes over 1200m. He finished last campaign with 3.4 lengths 11th in the Magic Millions open quality handicap over 1300m on 11 January, then resumed for 1.7 lengths 4th in the Listed Ramornie Handicap over 1200m at Grafton on 8 July where he led until headed at the 200m. His second-up record isn’t very good and he is up against a field of race fit rivals.
