Ascot horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:23) Tabtouch Westspeed Platinum Maiden (1000m)
#1 – Stella Door – Bet Now
Stella Door ran well for second at Ascot last start and he could improve by going one better this Saturday.
The three-year-old has finished second on three occasions and although yet to win, he meets a relatively even field here.
Race 2. (13:58) Amelia Park Plate (1000m)
#1 – Our Boy Dylan – Bet Now
Our Boy Dylan capped off consistent form with a win on this track last start. He won easily by 1.5 lengths and it could be a sign of things to come.
He’s a two-year-old that has shown good barrier speed in all three starts and that’s a good asset to have.
Drawing barrier three should see him land on the speed.
Race 3. (14:34) Furphy BM60 (1200m)
#1 – Son of a God – Bet Now
Son of a God is shooting for four consecutive wins and his most recent was impressive. It came by 3.5 lengths at Pinjarra and it’s good to see William Pike stick with him.
The Simon Miller-trained son of Playing God could have a nice future and punters should be confident of his chances.
Race 4. (15:19) Crown Perth BM65 (1000m)
#6 – Deacalda – Bet Now
Deacalda is another premium ride for William Pike. The four-year-old mare is a three-time winner from seven starts, and she has three additional placings as well.
Another runner for Simon Miller, the daughter of Sizzling is looking to improve on a fair fresh up performance at Ascot.
She’s better than that so expect quick improvement.
Race 5. (15:59) Penfolds BM78 (1600m)
#2 – Touch of Silver – Bet Now
Adam Durrant is having a tough time getting Touch of Silver back to winning form, but he could cause an upset.
The experienced winner of 10 races needs to lift on his recent efforts but he’s an eight-time winner at Ascot.
He needs to be respected and the odds should appeal.
Race 6. (16:38) Cool Ridge 1MW (1600m)
#4 – Tollman – Bet Now
Tollman is a three-time winner from only eight starts. He has finished in the money in seven of his eight starts, so there’s plenty to like.
One of those wins came on this track in February and he backed it up with a win at Bunbury.
Stick with Tollman as he hasn’t shown any reason not to.
Race 7. (17:14) Happy 80th Colin Webster 1MW (1600m)
#7 – Our Idyll – Bet Now
The four-year-old has won two of her last three starts and it’s tough to overlook that run of form.
She scored both wins at Pinjarra and although she’s yet to win at Ascot, she has placed here in the past.
Drawing barrier 11 could make it tough but punters should be getting each-way odds.
Race 8. (17:50) W.A. Derby (2400m)
#4 – Tuscan Queen @ $1.55 – Bet Now
Tuscan Queen is the clear top pick and her odds reflects that. The filly owns five wins from nine starts, including a two-length win last start.
The Williams-trained daughter of Fastnet Rock gets every chance from barrier two and William Pike stays with her.
$1.55 is short but add it to your multi bets.
Race 9. (18:25) Pepsi Max BM66 (2100m)
#4 – Adornment – Bet Now
Adornment has improved with every run this season and she looks ready to cross the line first.
The four-year-old ran second at Ascot last start and she was only beaten by a nose right on the line.
She has won twice at Ascot and we’re expecting another good effort.
Race 10. (19:00) Schweppes Tonic BM72 (1200m)
#2 – Fred Dag – Bet Now
Fred Dag won twice last campaign and he’s good enough to win here. He went close fresh up before needing the run last time out.
Jason Whiting takes the ride and although he’s yet to win from six attempts at Ascot, he owns three placings.
Punters should get value odds.
