One of Queensland’s leading trainers Toby Edmonds will have 5 chances going into today’s Ipswich meet, almost guaranteed a victory based on his impressive strike rate of almost 30% at the track for season 2017/18.
Punters will be licking their lips at each of the trainer’s prospects as markets open, in fact 3 of his 5 runners currently pre-race favorites. Kicked off by first starters Evolo ($3.00) in race 2 and Guanaba Girl ($3.60) in race 3, the maidens will be aiming to get the day off to a winning start for the stable before Miss Severina ($2.80), Awake The Stars ($3.60) and Cadogan ($5.50) will be trying to keep the Ipswich record in tact.
Adding to the big opportunity of perhaps going 5 from 5 tomorrow, the trainer will combine with premier jockey Jeff Lloyd and veteran Jim Byrne in all 5 races, with Lloyd in fact winning 26% of the time for the stable in season 2017/18.
Jeff Lloyd will steer debutant Evolo in race 2 before looking to pick up where he left off when he takes the ride on Cadogan in the final event of the day. Last start winner Miss Severina looks the best chance of the day, after the Foxwedge mare scored a dominant win at the Sunshine Coast last time out.
With Edmonds’ horses finding the money over 60% of the time at this track for season 2017/18, the opportunity arises for punters to combine all chances, in fact, backing all of his runners just to place gives you odds of $8.83 with Sportsbet.com.au, with just $11.30 needed to make $100.00.
