Ascot horse racing tips
Race 1. (15:52) Free Entry for Females BM62 (1400m)
#1 – Long Beach – Bet Now
Long Beach has rattled off consecutive wins this preparation, which bodes well for this race. The three-year-old gelding came from near last to scorch home last start and he looks a nice type in the making.
He is in the right hands for a big run and we’re confident of his chances to win three consecutive races.
Race 2. (16:32) Tabtouch Westspeed 0MW (1100m)
#5 – I’m Pretty – Bet Now
I’m Pretty is looking to rebound from a disappointing effort at Pinjarra last start, but she has the capability to do so.
She is a three-time winner that placed in her only attempt on this track, so she should appreciate returning to Ascot.
It’s a competitive field and represents good value.
Race 3. (17:08) International Women’s Day Maiden (1400m)
#1 – Son of the Sun – Bet Now
The four-year-old gelding has yet to win from 12 starts, but he owns four placings and this isn’t a strong field to face.
Trained by Brett Pope, the son of Demerit kicked off this campaign with a third placing at Ascot and he could improve nicely to finally break his duck.
Race 4. (17:45) Crown Towers BM78 (1600m)
#6 – Bella’s Idol – Bet Now
Bella’s Idol did well to run fifth on this track last start when starting as a $40 chance. The Summer Dickson-trained gelding was good enough to win two races on this track last year, so that form would take him close.
He’s not the most consistent runner going around but he should provide punters with some good value at odds.
Race 5. (18:25) Supremacy Stakes (1000m)
#5 – Our Danni – Bet Now
The two-year-old looked good when winning on debut at Ascot, and her form since has been solid. She finished second in November and returned in February to run third behind Watch Me Dance.
That form should stack up nicely for this race and with Chris Parnham in the saddle with 55.5kg on her back, she should be tough to handle.
Punters will likely get good odds given the opposition.
Race 6. (19:05) Hawaiian Ride for Youth BM62 (1000m)
#1 – Laverrod – Bet Now
It took five runs for Laverrod to break maiden grades and he could go back-to-back now. The three-year-old by Toronado scored by a length at Ascot last start, which came against a good field.
It holds him in good stead for this run and despite rising in weight to 60kg, he looks classy at his best and he could score again.
Race 7. (19:40) Amelia Park Beef BM72 (1200m)
#5 – Red Can Man – Bet Now
Red Can Man has a good record of three wins and four placings from eight starts. That form will stack up nicely in this grade and most of his runs have come on this track.
The son of Gingerbread Man finished third at Ascot last November, and has been primed with two trial wins at Albany.
Drawing barrier four is ideal and we’re expecting a big effort.
Race 8. (20:15) Budget Car & Truck Rental BM66 (2100m)
#2 – Morning Song – Bet Now
Morning Song comes from the powerful Williams stable and she’s in winning form. The four-year-old has won four of her last six starts, including a 1.3-length win last start.
It came in a higher class than this, so dropping back in class and only rising up 2kg is an ideal situation for the daughter of Bernardini.
She looks like one of the better bets on the card.
Race 9. (20:55) Ride Like a Girl Movie 1MW (1400m)
#1 – Smarty – Bet Now
The four-year-old mare is a professional winner of six from 11 starts, which also includes three placings. She rattled off four consecutive wins to close her last campaign and she could start in a similar fashion.
It will be a good test of her ability in this grade but we’re expecting her to flourish.
