Ascot horse racing tips
Race 1. (14:19) Tabtouch Westspeed Maiden (1400m)
#3 – Billy Jack – Bet Now
Billy Jack has placed in both starts to date and he could improve enough to win. The three-year-old placed at Albany on both occasions and he made good ground.
He’s facing a harder field here but punters should get value odds and he could be worth a play in the opening race.
Race 2. (14:59) Gourmet Takeaway Plate (1200m)
#7 – Ghobella – Bet Now
Ghobella has placed in both career starts and although she’s facing a three-time winner that looks special, she could add place value.
The daughter of Blackfriars ran second at Pinjarra last start and that should be a good form guide. If any runner is going to upset Charleton Eddie, it could be Ghobella.
Race 3. (15:39) Amelia Park BM56 (1200m)
#2 – Blazing Billy – Bet Now
Blazing Billy is blazing after posting back-to-back wins at Pinjarra. The gelding scored by 1.3 lengths last month and backed that up with a tough victory last start.
He has had one run at Ascot for a fifth on debut and having had the experience should do him plenty of good.
The small field should help his chances.
Race 4. (16:19) Byron Bay Premium 1MW (1100m)
#7 – Blankenberge – Bet Now
The four-year-old mare has been in work for a while now and she continues to run well. She scored three consecutive victories earlier this preparation before placing twice.
She’s yet to win from seven attempts at Ascot but William Pike gets back in the saddle after her recent placing and that’s a good sign.
Punters should get value odds despite the booking of Pike.
Race 5. (16:55) Crown Perth 1MW (1400m)
#4 – The Escort – Bet Now
The Escort did well to run fourth last start and he’s always better with a run under his belt. The five-year-old is a four-time winner and he owns form on this track.
His best efforts come second-up with five starts for a win and two placings. It’s good enough form for this race and we’re backing him in.
Race 6. (17:25) Kirin Megumi BM72 (1600m)
#6 – Pinsson – Bet Now
Pinsson owns a good record of 31 starts for six wins and eight placings, including two recent wins. He hasn’t run a bad race for some time now and that bodes well for this race.
He’s facing a solid field and that’s his biggest hurdle, but his confidence is up and that shouldn’t be overlooked as a nine-year-old.
Bookmakers should offer generous odds.
Race 7. (17:55) Schweppes BM68 (1200m)
#1 – Massimo – Bet Now
Massimo is looking to improve on a recent fourth at Ascot. The three-year-old was sent out the favourite last start but he couldn’t pick up the winner.
He has four wins from only eight starts, so there’s no doubting his class. Three of those wins have come on this track and we’re prepared to give him another chance.
We’re expecting his odds to be short.
Race 8. (18:25) Eurythmic Stakes (2100m)
#5 – Mystery Miss – Bet Now
Mystery Miss is a mystery but she’s talented on her day. The Williams-trained mare has six wins from 14 starts, so the talent is there. However, she’s coming off a disappointing eighth.
Her win on this track earlier last month was a much better guide and Pike sticks with her. Punters might not get value odds but she’s the best horse in the race.
Race 9. (19:00) Seppelt Wines BM64 (1800m)
#1 – Dark Choice – Bet Now
Dark Choice scored by a half-length two starts back before running third at Ascot last start. The four-year-old mare has talent and she deserves respect in this field.
She’s in good hands and although drawing barrier 12 could make it tricky, she should run well at each-way odds.
