Ascot horse racing tips
Race 1. (15:51) Mrs Mac’s Pi Day Plate (1200m)
#1 – Dom to Shoot – Bet Now
Dom to Shoot has won and placed from three career starts. The two-year-old gelding scored an impressive win on this track two starts back before running a gallant second last start.
He only narrowly missed by a nose and that’s going to be a good form guide for this race. Drawing barrier two helps and he should be well-backed on race day.
Race 2. (16:31) Tabtouch Better Your Bet BM71 (1600m)
#2 – Mystery Miss – Bet Now
Team Williams lines up the four-year-old mare, that has good form second-up. She owns five wins from 10 starts, and she could be a type that heads to Melbourne next season.
She’s a past winner on this track and with Chris Graham in the saddle from barrier six, she should be very tough to beat.
Race 3. (17:11) R Moore & Sons BM78 (1200m)
#2 – Carocapo – Bet Now
The six-year-old rattled off three consecutive wins earlier this preparation, and that form is tough to overlook.
He is a son of Husson that was only 2.4 lengths behind the winner last start, and he should be able to build on that run.
Five of his six wins have come on this track and he should prove tough to beat again.
Race 4. (17:50) Glenroy Chaff 1MW (1200m)
#5 – Sherpa Lass – Bet Now
Sherpa Lass is unbeaten after three starts and she could remain unbeaten following this race. The four-year-old scored narrowly at Ascot last start and it was her second win on this track.
She’s only one of two last-start winners in this race, which bodes well for another good run. Punters might not get big odds, but she’s worth including regardless of the price.
Race 5. (18:25) D’orsogna 1MW (1600m)
#2 – Dark Choice – Bet Now
Dark Choice is another runner from the Williams stable and she could improve after running sixth last start.
The daughter of Redoute’s Choice scored her maiden win last March when winning over 2400m, so the rise up to the mile suits perfectly.
Drawing barrier five should see her fighting out the finish.
Race 6. (19:05) Byron Bay Premium Lager BM66 (1400m)
#8 – Cryptic Love – Bet Now
The four-year-old mare flew home to finish second at Ascot last start, and she could get back to winning form here.
The daughter of My Admiration has the experience of 21 starts and that’s likely to show up against this field.
Punters should get value odds from bookmakers on race day.
Race 7. (19:45) Schweppes JC Roberts Stakes (1800m)
#3 – Talladega – Bet Now
Unbeaten after three starts, Talladega looks a nice type in the making. The three-year-old scored by a length at Ascot last start, and he gets every chance from the inside draw.
Carrying 55kg is another bonus and although this will be his biggest test to date, he should be up to this standard.
The class of this race could see punters getting nice odds.
Race 8. (20:20) Natasha Stakes (2200m)
#1 – Tuscan Queen – Bet Now
Team Williams lines up the talented filly which is looking to bounce back after a disappointing effort last start.
She settled back during the run and never really came on, but she’s much better than that. The daughter of Fastnet Rock owns two wins on this track and we’re expecting a form reversal.
Race 9. (20:55) Crown Perth 1MW (1200m)
#2 – Sweet Dreamin’ – Bet Now
Sweet Dreamin’ was good enough to win three consecutive races this campaign. He followed that up with a second placing last start, so he’s in good form.
Drawing barrier 13 isn’t ideal but he only needs some luck to figure in the finish. That could come with a good ride, so keep him safe.
