Ascot horse racing tips

Race 1. (15:27) Magic Millions Plate (1000m)

#5 – Lucky Sue – Bet @ Sportsbet

Lucky Sue finished second on debut at Belmont Park and she had plenty of betting support on that occasion.

The two-year-old daughter of Lucky Street should improve with the run under her belt and that should be reflected in betting markets.

Carrying 55kg is ideal and she should be tough to beat.

Race 2. (16:07) Tabtouch Platinum 0MW (1400m)

#1 – Blazing Away – Bet @ Sportsbet

Blazing Away is a two-time winner from nine starts and the son of City Place should have every chance to win.

He didn’t win at his only start at Ascot, but he finished only 2.5 lengths behind the winner in a fresh state.

His most recent placing is a good sign and punters should get value odds.

Race 3. (16:47) Neville Forward Memorial Plate (1400m)

#8 – The Velvet Queen – Bet @ Sportsbet

The Velvet Queen scored back-to-back wins to open her account this season. She wasn’t disgraced behind a smart field last start and that form bodes well.

The daughter of Universal Ruler should appreciate running in this company and drawing barrier two is ideal.

We expect bookmakers to have her at short odds.

Race 4. (17:27) Amelia Park Lodge BM72 (1000m)

#6 – Mantelli – Bet @ Sportsbet

Mantelli has yet to win at Ascot from three starts, but the five-year-old has gone close on numerous occasions.

The son of Per Incanto was close behind them last start, which followed a second placing at Ascot in similar conditions.

Carrying 54kg is ideal and we fancy his chances of success.

Race 5. (18:05) Crown Towers BM72 (1600m)

#4 – I’m Pretty – Bet @ Sportsbet

I’m Pretty paid a good price when running third at Ascot last start and she’ll be at much shorter odds this time around.

She is a seven-time winner from 26 starts, so she’s always around the mark and having William Pike in the saddle is a bonus.

Pike has ridden her in six of her seven wins, so the pair combine well.

Race 6. (18:40) Belhus Racing Stables 1MW (1600m)

#1 – Blackwater Bay – Bet @ Sportsbet

Blackwater Bay struggled towards the end of his last campaign, but his form prior was good enough to warrant attention.

The son of Blackfriars has yet to finish worse than third from five attempts at Ascot, so he’s a track specialist.

Getting the inside draw adds to his appeal and he’s a two-time winner at the distance.

Race 7. (19:15) Glenroy Chaff BM66 (2200m)

#1 – Come Right Back – Bet @ Sportsbet

Come Right Back doesn’t have the form on the board this season, but we’re not discounting his talent.

The five-year-old son of Toronado is a three-time winner at Ascot and five of his six wins have come on a good track.

Drawing barrier 13 will test William Pike, but he has time to find cover and he’ll likely drop back and try run them down late.

Race 8. (19:50) Easingworld Stakes BM84 (1400m)

#5 – The Spruiker – Bet @ Sportsbet

The four-year-old continues to perform at a high level after notching his eighth win from 14 starts last time out.

He scored by a half-length against a talented field and he owns three wins over this distance, so he gets conditions to suit.

Bookmakers should have him as the short favourite.

Race 9. (20:25) Morley Growers Market 1MW (1200m)

#2 – Material Witness – Bet @ Sportsbet

Material Witness is looking for consecutive wins after beating a hot field at Pinjarra last time out.

The five-year-old has figured in the finish in nine of his 11 career starts and he has shown a fine turn-of-foot in the process.

Having Pike in the saddle helps and he could end the day on a high.
