Ascot horse racing tips
Race 1. (15:18) Tabtouch Platinum Maiden (1200m)
#4 – Universal Angel – Bet Now
Team Williams lines up the four-year-old gelding which is making his debut.
The son of Universal Ruler has had two trials to prepare for this run, but he wasn’t asked to do much.
The big selling point is seeing William Pike in the saddle and that’s going to shorten his odds considerably.
Watch the market for a betting lead.
Race 2. (15:57) Amelia Park Plate (1000m)
#10 – Sunnysilk – Bet Now
Sunnysilk has had the benefit of race day experience and that’s big against an inexperienced field.
The two-year-old filly owns two placings from three starts, with her latest placing coming at Ascot behind Brooklyn Pier.
That form should stack up nicely at this level and punters should be able to find juicy odds.
Race 3. (16:37) Crown Perth BM72 (1800m)
#2 – Harry Thomas – Bet Now
It has been a long season for Harry Thomas, but he keeps producing good efforts. He has had plenty of recent racing, which includes a win at Ascot in November.
He’s a six-year-old that owns only five wins from 37 starts, but he also owns 17 placings. The consistent gelding is worth sticking with here.
Punters should be getting nice odds.
Race 4. (17:17) Jockey Celebration Day BM62 (1100m)
#6 – Chatter Session – Bet Now
William Pike teams up with the three-year-old filly for the first time. She comes into this having won by a nose at Pinjarra last start and there’s confidence in the camp.
The daughter of Sessions was a winner at Ascot three back when scoring by two lengths and that’s a great form guide for this race.
She’s going to get her chance in the run and perform highly.
Race 5. (17:54) Scenic Blast Stakes (1200m)
#1 – Valour Road – Bet Now
Class is with Valour Road after he scored a 1.3-length win on this track just two weeks ago.
The Simon Miller-trained four-year-old settled just off the pace with Pike in the saddle and kicked strongly in the straight.
Expect a similar effort and although there’s more depth to this stakes field, he presents punters with a good chance.
Race 6. (18:30) Jason Oliver Memorial BM72 (1400m)
#3 – Coming Around – Bet Now
Coming Around is searching for his third consecutive win after notching wins at Ascot.
The four-year-old scored by just under a length two back in December before winning by a nose last time out.
It was won in a driving finish from the Williams-trained son of Gingerbread Man and he should be able to go well again.
It’s another quality ride for Pike.
Race 7. (19:10) Adrian Chan Memorial 1MW (1600m)
#1 – Patristic – Bet Now
Patristic has found winning form of late, winning his last three races at Pinjarra and Ascot.
His last win was the most impressive, scoring by three lengths in a front-running display on this track.
If he’s able to get his own way out front again, he’ll be tough to beat at each-way odds.
There will be a hot favourite in Inspirational Girl, but take the value with this runner.
Race 8. (19:45) Hana Dickson Memorial BM66 (1200m)
#8 – State Attorney – Bet Now
The deadly combo of Adam Durrant and William Pike teams up with State Attorney. The gelding won well fresh up and wasn’t far behind them last start.
Punters might have been disappointed with his fourth at Pinjarra as the odds-on favourite, but he’s better suited to Ascot.
He has yet to miss a placing from five starts, so consider here.
Race 9. (20:25) Nicole Botica Memorial 1MW (1000m)
#11 – Silver Cloud Three – Bet Now
Silver Cloud Three has looked good at times throughout this season and he could add some value in the final race.
He won well fresh up and although hasn’t quite handled the rise in class, there are no superstars in this field.
Punters should take the value odds on offer.
