Tradesman To Get Job Done In Ipswich Cup


The Darren Weir trained stayer Tradesman is the stand-out or punters at tomorrow’s Ipswich Cup meeting.

Weir has had some nice wins during the winter carnival and betting suggests he could have another big day. Punters are not shy about taking the short odds Tradesman and Gai Waterhouse Classic favourite, Platinum Angel, is likely to firm even more if the trend continues.

Away from the top two in Cup betting the Chris Munce trained First Crush ($20) also has plenty of admirers.

Bet on the Ipswich Cup here.


  • Tradesman ($1.80) holds more than twice the money than second favourite Equador ($6.00).
  • Cup outsider Miss Dubois ($21) has received more bets than Equador.
  • Solid support for Moss ‘n’ Dale ($4.60) could usurp Tyzone ($4.40) from favouritism in the Eye Liner Stakes.
  • Weir on target for feature race double as money rolls in for Platinum Angel ($3.20 favourite) in the Gai Waterhouse Classic.
