Ascot horse racing tips
Race 1. (17:24) 3YO Plate (1200m)
#6 – Levitate @ $2.10 – Bet Now
Plenty of money has come for Levitate, which has run in the first three in all three career runs to date.
The Simon Miller-trained three-year-old scored a 1.5-length win at Bunbury before running on nicely at Ascot last start.
Gets William Pike in the saddle and that will take him a long way.
Race 2. (18:03) BM72 (1800m)
#5 – Prince Turbo @ $4.20 – Bet Now
Prince Turbo has the afterburners on this campaign with three consecutive wins coming into this race.
The six-year-old gelding scored by three lengths three starts back and won by a length at Ascot last time out.
He gets into this race nicely with only 55kg on his back and that’s going to take this on-form runner close once again.
Race 3. (18:39) BM72 (1000m)
#7 – Plutocracy @ $3 – Bet Now
Simon Miller lines up the five-year-old which should run better than what he showed fresh up.
The son of Sebring is only a two-win runner from 17 starts but he has been facing good fields and should find this easier.
It’s another good ride for William Pike and he could start the day with a bang.
Race 4. (19:14) BM72 (1500m)
#3 – Not To Be Mist @ $1.75 – Bet Now
Punters will have to take the short odds around Not to be Mist, but he’s far too good to leave out of calculations.
The Adam Durrant-trained four-year-old scored by a nose last start but he pulled out all the stops when beating a nice field.
He owns five wins from eight starts and guess who’s in the saddle? It’s that man William Pike once again.
Race 5. (19:50) 1MW Handicap (1600m)
#2 – Inflation @ $4.80 – Bet Now
Inflation has yet to win from three starts this campaign but hasn’t been all that far away either.
The four-year-old gelding is a three-time winner from 12 starts and his best run this campaign was a second placing at Ascot two back.
Bookmakers have opened him at nice odds of $4.80 and he should be on the drift to around $6 come race day.
Race 6. (20:25) 1MW Handicap (1400m)
#12 – Inspirational Girl @ $3 – Bet Now
Unbeaten runners are always worth watching and Inspirational Girl fits the bill.
The four-year-old mare by Reliable Man scored a debut win at Pinjarra by 1.8 lengths before winning again by two lengths.
Her recent trial form has been only average, but she wasn’t asked to do much and should take a power of beating on race day.
Race 7. (20:55) G.A. Towton Cup (2200m)
#1 – Taxagano @ $5 – Bet Now
Consistency is with Taxagano, which has been in work for some time now but continues to produce good efforts.
The six-year-old is trained by Fred Kersley and he owns four wins from 21 starts on this track. He has eight wins overall and he only narrowly went down last start.
There’s nothing wrong with his form coming into this and from a good barrier draw, he should be fighting out the finish.
Race 8. (21:25) BM66 (1200m)
#8 – Flower of War @ $2.25 – Bet Now
Flower of War kicked off her last campaign with three consecutive wins and she could hit the ground running here.
The Miller-trained four-year-old has four wins and two second placings from seven starts, which is a very good record to date.
Tricky draw barrier 10 but she clearly has the most ability in this race.
