Ascot horse racing tips
Race 1. (15:07) Crown Towers Plate (1100m)
#1 – Mindarie – Bet Now
The two-year-old filly was a winner on debut when scoring an upset at odds of $13.
She will be shorter in the market here as she showed good barrier speed when putting a field of nine away with ease.
The daughter of Safeguard shouldn’t have any problems finding the front from barrier one and she could remain unbeaten.
Race 2. (15:47) Tabtouch 0MW (1600m)
#5 – Over There – Bet Now
Over There has had two starts this campaign and she showed an improved effort when fourth last start.
The four-year-old mare is a three-time winner that scored earlier this year at Belmont and looks set to score another win soon.
Bookmakers should be offering juicy odds and she could be the value runner of the field.
Race 3. (16:27) All Flags BM72 (1800m)
#1 – Royal Command – Bet Now
Adam Durrant lines up the six-year-old gelding which was disappointing last start but not everything went right.
The son of Street Sense lost a plate and was caught wide throughout, so he was entitled to drop back in the straight.
He’s a six-time winner from only 16 starts and that’s a very good record at this stage of his career.
He should be winning this based on that.
Race 4. (17:07) Stephen Rakich Birthday BM78 (1000m)
#1 – Kemono – Bet Now
The former Japanese runner is overdue a win in Australia and facing easier company could help his cause.
He’s a four-year-old gelding that has been facing tough fields in Melbourne and Sydney. He has form behind the likes of Vinland, Pierata and Guizot.
That is great form for a race like this and he could finally score a win for loyal punters.
Race 5. (17:47) Schweppes 1MW (1200m)
#5 – This’ll Testya – Bet Now
This’ll Testya could be the next superstar of racing in Perth if her first two wins are anything to go by.
The Durrant-trained four-year-old scored on debut by 4.5 lengths before destroying her opposition by 6.8 lengths at Ascot.
It was a simply incredible performance from the daughter of Testa Rossa which is certainly going to fly through the grades.
Short odds will be on offer.
Race 6. (18:24) Amelia Park Plate (1200m)
#7 – Levitate – Bet Now
Simon Miller lines up the three-year-old gelding that has finished in the first three home in every start.
The son of Husson scored a win at Bunbury by 1.5 lengths two starts back and followed that up with a handy placing at Ascot.
He should get every chance down in the weights and having William Pike in the saddle is only going to help his chances.
Race 7. (19:03) Iron Jack BM72 (1400m)
#3 – Not To Be Mist – Bet Now
Form is with Not To Be Mist after winning his last two starts and those have both been impressive outings.
The Durrant-trained four-year-old scored by 3.5 lengths last start and he looks a type which could make a group horse at some stage.
It’s another good ride for William Pike and we’re not expecting punters to be getting huge odds for the likely favourite.
He will be a popular pick for multi-bet players.
Race 8. (19:42) Ted Van Heemst Stakes (2100m)
#5 – Regal Power @ $2 – Bet Now
Regal Power is a classy type that deserves to be favourite in this race.
The Williams-trained four-year-old is a five-time winner from 16 starts and he has another six placings on his record.
He wasn’t all that far away in the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic last start and that form is great at this level.
Pike rides and he’s clearly the one to beat.
Race 9. (20:20) Starstruck Classic (1600m)
#6 – Midnight Sky – Bet Now
Midnight Sky could improve on her latest run at Ascot to win here. She finished second behind Arctic Stream and she could handle this grade.
Gets into this race nicely on the weights at 55kg and if she can find a good spot in running from barrier nine, punters might get rewarded.
Value odds should be on offer from bookmakers.
Race 10. (20:57) Crown Sports Bar BM66 (2200m)
#3 – Sentimental Gift – Bet Now
Sentimental Gift doesn’t know how to run a bad race and that bodes well for this run.
The Williams-trained mare has yet to run worse than third in seven career starts. That includes a 1.3-length win at Ascot last start.
She could end a big day for William Pike and she should be at short odds to win.
