Ascot horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:49) Amelia Park BM62 (1000m)
#4 – Critical Altitude – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Neville Parnham-trained three-year-old filly has yet to win from three starts, but she looks to have good upside.
She finished third behind Son Son at Ascot last start and she shouldn’t find this any harder. It’s good form and she gets the inside draw and a light weight.
Watch late betting moves with this runner.
Race 2. (14:24) Crown Perth Plate (1200m)
#3 – Written Exceed – Bet @ Sportsbet
Written Exeed comes off a win at Ascot on debut and we have high expectations for the two-year-old colt.
The son of Safegaurd scored by 1.5 lengths as a $3.60 chance and punters should expect shorter odds on this occasion.
He showed good barrier speed and finding the front shouldn’t be a problem on Saturday.
Race 3. (15:05) Tabtouch Better Your Bet 1MW (1200m)
#8 – Billy Ray – Bet @ Sportsbet
Billy Ray hit the line powerfully when running second at Ascot last start and the 1.3-length win bodes well for this contest.
The three-year-old gelding owns four placings from five starts and he is fitter and ready to breakthrough for the victory.
Chris Parnham rides and he should find a good spot in running.
Race 4. (15:44) Schweppes BM66 (2200m)
#3 – Bonneville Black – Bet @ Sportsbet
We’re prepared to give Bonneville Black another chance after some disappointing efforts this season.
The Fred Kersley-trained five-year-old owns a win and placing at Ascot and although poor last start, he deserves one more chance.
Punters will get value odds and they’re worth taking.
Race 5. (16:24) Heineken 3 1MW (1800m)
#6 – Koranis – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old was good enough to score back-to-back wins before running sixth at Ascot last time out.
He wasn’t able to continue his winning streak but he did too much work in front and capitulated late in the straight.
Getting a 3kg claimer helps and he could be tough to catch.
Race 6. (17:00) Devil’s Lair BM78 (1500m)
#3 – Watch Me Dance – Bet @ Sportsbet
Watch Me Dance is a quality type that owns five wins and eight placings from 16 starts, so she is rarely far away.
The three-year-old filly comes off a third placing at Ascot and this isn’t the strongest field she has ever faced, so she could put them away.
Barrier four will give her a nice sit behind the speed and she could kick home late.
Race 7. (17:35) Mrs Macs BM72 (1000m)
#2 – River Beau – Bet @ Sportsbet
It didn’t look likely for River Beau last start but the smart four-year-old found the line impressively to score.
The son of Snippetson hit the line with power and it was his third win from his last four starts. He’s flying at the moment and rising in weight shouldn’t deter him.
Barrier two is ideal and punters should get each-way odds.
Race 8. (18:15) Westspeed Autumn Final 0MW (1200m)
#3 – Image Keeper – Bet @ Sportsbet
Image Keeper searches for his fourth consecutive win and we wouldn’t be ruling out the son of Scandal Keeper.
The four-year-old scored by a length last time out and he looks like a type that could rise through the grades.
This is another rise in class but punters should get value odds to enjoy.
Race 9. (18:55) Events at Ascot BM66 (1400m)
#7 – Sowar – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sowar is only a three-time winner from 22 starts but two of those wins have come at Ascot.
The four-year-old son of Sepoy is classy at best and he hasn’t been too far away from the prize at his last few starts.
Barrier one is ideal and we fancy his chances of being right around the mark.
