Ipswich Cup Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Numerian maps well and looks hard to beat. It is the class of this race and should prove hard to hold out. Desert Icon is nearing a win and is up to these while Berdibek will be hitting the line hard. Dark Destroyer is yet to show its best but looks suited to this field.

1. Numerian (9)

Should appreciate the drop in class and has this field covered in terms of form. Hard to beat with even luck from the draw.

2. Dark Destroyer (7)

Yet to show much in 2 runs back but has plenty of class. Keep an eye on the market.
