Ipswich Race 5: Provincial Stayers Series Final 2150m

12/06/2015: As stated in my race map comments luck in running will be the decider in this race. At good each way odds I am selecting Wearing Wings simply because he will be close to the pace and isn't drawn near the car park. Wimpole Street looks to have an abysmal strike rate but considering his failure on wet tracks and he has one win from ten starts fresh it is better to assess him on this distance and track condition. He has two from his last three runs around this distance with a flop in between at $101, a forgivable run. Kobi Creek is a lightly race improver and from his good draw will feature in the finish based on his run behind Wimpole Street and the third in the Caloundra Cup. I'm Hector seems better at 1800m but if he settles in off the pace, as he will from barrier two, the soft run and a good split could be the game changer to allow a win at the extra distance. That'llbgood has the task ahead off 35 days and a shocking barrier but a trickle of early money suggests he is fancied to repeat his defeat of I'm Hector two runs ago. This is such an even race so go as wide as you can in the quaddie. Place chances for the trifecta/first four punters are all horses bar my outclassed runners. In other words it's a raffle.

PACE COMMENTS There should be enough pace early from my official on pacers, as some will go forward if they jump swiftly, and the front runners are drawn close to the fence and aren't likely to give that advantage away too quickly. I suspect luck in running is more of an issue than pace for this event.
