Ascot horse racing tips
Race 1. (15:19) Schweppes BM57 (1100m)
#1 – Cliffs of Comfort – Bet Now
Cliffs of Comfort is unbeaten after two starts and he could remain perfect. The Pearce-trained gelding won on debut at Bunbury by 1.8 lengths before winning again.
His last-start effort at Ascot was a professional display, scoring by two lengths after leading throughout.
If he’s able to find the front again, he should take some running down.
Race 2. (15:59) Crown Perth BM62 (1400m)
#6 – That’s Funny Az – Bet Now
The three-year-old gelding owns two wins and three placings from 10 starts. He was only 1.3 lengths behind the winner last start, so it could pay to overlook that effort.
Prior to that, he scored back-to-back wins at Bunbury. Getting William Pike in the saddle is a bonus and we’re expecting another good run.
Race 3. (16:39) Tabtouch 0MW (1400m)
#12 – Rewrite the Stars – Bet Now
The three-year-old isn’t the most consistent type but she has ability. She scored her maiden win at Belmont in September and has faced some tough fields since.
The daughter of Universal Ruler gets in with only 55kg on her back, and it’s another good ride for William Pike.
Drawing barrier three should see her find a nice spot and kick strongly.
Race 4. (17:19) Amelia Park Beef 1MW (1000m)
#11 – She’s Vital – Bet Now
Punters should get good value with She’s Vital, which improved to run second last time out.
It was a much-improved effort from the five-year-old mare after some disappointing efforts to kick off her campaign.
Drawing barrier four should see her right in the mix and the odds will be generous.
Race 5. (17:54) Amelia Park Lamb BM64 (2400m)
#4 – Picture Perfect – Bet Now
Team Williams lines up the four-year-old gelding that is coming off a win on this track.
The son of Reset extended his win record to three from seven starts, which is a nice way to kick off his career.
It comes as no surprise to see Pike in the saddle and that’s going to shorten his odds. He’s worth sticking with at this level.
Race 6. (18:30) Amelia Park Lodge BM64 (1400m)
#7 – Sherpa Lass – Bet Now
Sherpa Lass made it a perfect four-from-four last start, and she looks a good chance of remaining unbeaten.
The Daniel Morton-trained mare scored her first two wins easily but her last two have been last-ditch efforts.
Her turn-of-foot is impressive and if she’s able to beat this field, she could be a nice type in the making.
Race 7. (19:05) Old Comrade Stakes (1600m)
#8 – Western Temple – Bet Now
Adam Durrant lines up the six-year-old gelding that did enough fresh up to warrant attention. He finished fourth and his second-up record consists of five starts for a win and four placings.
He owns a wealth of experience on this track with 18 starts for four wins and nine placings. It could be enough to see him fighting out the finish.
William Pike scores another good ride.
Race 8. (19:45) Amelia Park Karrakatta Plate (1200m)
#1 – Gemma’s Son @ $1.65 – Bet Now
Money is with Gemma’s Son and we’re not surprised. The two-year-old colt has scored four easy victories, and looks set to add another.
He scored easily by two lengths at Ascot last start and he could be the next star out of the west.
He has the class edge over this field and the odds are justified.
Race 9. (20:20) Amelia Park Wines BM78 (1100m)
#9 – Laverrod – Bet Now
The consistent gelding has had seven starts for two wins and five placings. He doesn’t know how to run a bad race and he gets everything in his favour here.
He scored back-to-back wins before running second last start. He’s capable of getting back to winning form and drawing barrier two with 55kg helps.
