Italian Group One winner Voila Ici  heads the field for the Ipswich Cup on Saturday after being allotted topweight of 60kg for the $200,000 event. The Peter Moody trained galloper raced in all the top races last spring - including the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups –and even finished second to subsequent Cox Plate winner Ocean Park in a Group One event at Caulfield. After making a slow start to his campaign this time in, he showed that he was back in form by finishing third in the Eagle Farm Cup on Queensland Oaks day last time out and will relish the expected wet track.

Planetarium beat several of these rivals at Eagle Farm last time out and is should run well from the inside gate while Ginga Dude , Topping  and Kiwi visitor High Kin  are other leading chances. Michael Moroney won the race with Shenzhou Steeds twelve months ago and relies on Muirfield  this time around.
