Ascot horse racing tips
Race 1. (15:37) Vale Harold Hutchison Handicap (1200m)
#2 – Ohbeeh – Bet Now
Ohbeeh was a good winner on debut at Bunbury and he could stay unbeaten against this field.
The three-year-old son of Sessions scored by 1.3 lengths after leading throughout and we’re expecting similar tactics to be used.
Drawing barrier four is ideal and there should be good betting support on race day.
Race 2. (16:17) Tabtouch Westspeed Maiden (1100m)
#6 – Miss Quoted – Bet Now
Miss Quoted has yet to win from 19 career starts but it’s never too late and she could represent value in this race.
The five-year-old owns four placings from those 19 starts and three of those have come this preparation.
That’s good form coming into this and it’s not the best maiden field we’ve ever seen.
Race 3. (16:57) Amelia Park Plate (1100m)
#3 – Convalesce – Bet Now
The two-year-old colt by Playing God comes into this as a trial winner at Lark Hill and he could have tough to beat.
He’s a debutante that has had three trials and he gets the coveted inside draw for this run. That’s important for the juveniles and it could be telling over the concluding stages.
Interesting runner so watch the market.
Race 4. (17:37) Glenroy Chaff BM68 (1600m)
#1 – Midnight Sky – Bet Now
Midnight Sky is more than capable of beating this field as a six-time winner that also has eight placings.
The Adam Durrant-trained six-year-old was beaten comfortably at Pinjarra last start but that came against open company and this is much easier.
Her win at Ascot prior came in BM72 grade and she looks the hardest to beat.
Race 5. (18:14) Miss Andretti Stakes (1100m)
#2 – Valour Road – Bet Now
Valour Road gets the services of William Pike and that could see him turn his solid form into winning form.
The four-year-old finished second at Ascot last start after not handling a tough grade prior to that behind Hey Doc.
He’s a five-time winner from 13 starts and we’re not expecting punters to be getting very big odds for this runner.
Race 6. (18:50) David Della Rocca 1MW (2100m)
#3 – Alimentaria – Bet Now
Alimentaria was good enough to win three consecutive races earlier this campaign, so respect that form.
The five-year-old mare then ran third at Ascot last start but it’s good to see William Pike back in the saddle for this run.
She clearly has talent and from barrier three, she’s going to get every chance to show off her turn-of-foot in the straight.
Race 7. (19:20) Terence Brown 80th Birthday BM66 (1400m)
#3 – Coming Around – Bet Now
Coming Around gives William Pike another good winning chance and he could go back-to-back.
The four-year-old gelding is coming off a one-length win at Ascot last start and he’s a type that could rise through the grades.
Drawing barrier 11 makes it tough over this distance but he looks tough to beat regardless.
Race 8. (19:50) Seacorp BM72 (1000m)
#7 – Plutocracy – Bet Now
Getting better with every run is Plutocracy, which is knocking on the door after consecutive placings.
The five-year-old gelding ran third at Ascot two back in December and went one better when second at Ascot last start.
The form out of that race should stack up nicely and he showed a good turn-of-foot in the straight. If he can show the same speed here, he’ll be tough to hold out.
Race 9. (20:25) Crown Sports Bar 1MW (1000m)
#7 – Dynabelle – Bet Now
Dynabelle looked good winning consecutive races to open her account this preparation. The six-year-old won at Narrogin before winning again at Ascot.
Having winning experience on this track is ideal and she is a two-time winner over this distance.
Kyra Yuill will need to provide a good ride from the barrier but she’s capable on her day.
