Ipswich Race 5: Queensland Times Provincial Stayers 2150m

17/06/2016: This is not a great race with most of the field here moderately performed at best. Caillebotte has to overcome a very wide draw here but clearly has the best recent form of anything engaged in this. Drops in grade here and is a winner at his only start this track and distance. This gelding has steadily improved with racing and is a clear top selection. Artibai needs to break an 11 run losing sequence but did show a return to form when runner up last time at the Sunshine Coast albeit on heavy ground. Has won up to 2500m and most of these are pretty weak so should be around the money again here. All Clear beat Artibai in that race and has got a very good record at this track. Rises in class on that run and has won up to 2200m. Genuine each way prospect in this. Denoninator was also a runner in that same race and was a luckless 5th. Had run 2 successive 2nds prior to that at lower grades. Probably needs it wet to be considered a genuine winning chance but should be around the place money at least. Jimmy Hoffa ran 3rd in that same race also. Hasn't done much since arriving from N.Z. and has won only 2 from 36, but could be a place chance against this lot.

PACE COMMENTS When I construct my race maps I sometimes have question marks above the names of the horses whom I am unsure of relevant to where they will settle. This race is peppered with question marks and to suggest this is an inconsistent group would be an understatement. Although I only have Canongate as the lone leader it would not surprise to see one or two of my on pacers at least challenging for the lead going out of the straight. As I have some doubts I have to suggest the pace will solid enough for the mid fielders but whether the back markers have the ability to make up the ground is another matter.
