Ascot horse racing tips

Race 1. (14:16) Tabtouch Westspeed 0MW (1100m)

#3 – Lacevinsky – Bet @ Sportsbet

Lacevinsky has the best form in the race with back-to-back wins followed by consecutive second placings.

The six-year-old gelding has only one win from 16 starts at Ascot, but he owns nine placings, so he’s always around the mark.

It’s not a strong field to open the day and he could take advantage.

Race 2. (15:05) Magic Millions Plate (1100m)

#6 – Costume Party – Bet @ Sportsbet

Costume Party scored a win on debut at Belmont Park before placing at Ascot in two subsequent races.

The two-year-old filly was under a length behind the winner at Ascot last start, which came behind Revitup. That form stacks up brilliantly for this contest.

We expect her odds to be on the shorter side.

Race 3. (15:45) Seppelt Drives Plate (1000m)

#6 – Rockin’ Rupert – Bet @ Sportsbet

Rockin’ Rupert looked the goods when winning by two lengths on debut and he wasn’t disgraced last time out.

The son of Winning Rupert finished a half-length behind the winner as a $2.15 chance, so there were big expectations.

Punters might not have got the chocolates on that occasion, but he’s worth sticking with.

Race 4. (16:25) Ascend Sales Trophies BM66 (1000m)

#2 – This’ll Testya – Bet @ Sportsbet

Class is with This’ll Testya, who is better than what she has shown at her last three starts.

The four-time winner looked like a nice type in the making early on, and she defeated a nice field fresh up by two lengths.

Consistency has been lacking lately but she demands attention.

Race 5. (17:05) Amelia Park 1MW (1400m)

#1 – Ginger Baker – Bet @ Sportsbet

Ginger Baker needed the fresh up run and the four-year-old should be ready to fire now.

He owns a win and a second placing from two second-up starts. He also owns three wins over the distance, so the statistics read well.

Punters could get each-way odds on race day, so include.

Race 6. (17:45) Furphy Summer Scorcher (1000m)

#10 – The Front Bar @ $2.35 – Bet @ Sportsbet

The Front Bar is shooting for four consecutive wins and we wouldn’t rule out her chances.

The Adam Durrant-trained filly scored by a half-length at Ascot last start and she is unbeaten from all three starts on the track.

Her future is bright and we wouldn’t rule her out.

Race 7. (18:25) Mumm Champagne BM66 (1600m)

#4 – Ginger Flyer – Bet @ Sportsbet

Simon Miller lines up the five-year-old mare who has five wins and 10 placings on her record.

The supremely consistent mare is a track specialist with four wins and four placings, so punters always get value for their money.

Getting a 3kg claimer in the saddle helps and drawing barrier three is ideal.

Race 8. (19:05) Mrs Macs La Trice Classic (1800m)

#8 – Bright Diamond @ $14 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Bright Diamond runs at value odds in the co-main event of the day. The Williams-trained mare owns four wins from 12 starts, so she is a quality type.

She didn’t fire behind Beret in a blanket finish last time out, but we’re prepared to give her another chance.

Carrying 55kg helps and punters get odds worth taking.

Race 9. (19:45) Tabtouch Perth Cup (2400m)

#12 – Midnight Blue @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Midnight Blue is the favourite following a third placing behind Stafford’s Lad, but we’re expecting better this time around.

The Williams-trained gelding owns three wins and seven placings at Ascot, so he’s a track specialist and well worth following.

Dropping to 53kg is ideal and he can’t be left out.

Race 10. (20:20) Crown Perth BM72 (1200m)

#4 – Son Son – Bet @ Sportsbet

The son of Rogano got back to his best form with a win at Ascot last start and we like his chances of winning again.

He defeated a quality field to win his fifth race from 11 attempts, which is a smart record at this stage of his career.

He’s unbeaten at the distance so put him on top.
