Ascot horse racing tips
Race 1. (15:34) Tabtouch Platinum Maiden (1400m)
#8 – Wednesday – Bet @ Sportsbet
Wednesday could win on Saturday after two placings from her first two starts. The four-year-old mare ran second at Belmont last start, which is a good guide for this race.
It’s not the strongest field she will ever face and with Steven Parnham in the saddle, expect a solid effort in the opening race.
Race 2. (16:14) Schweppes Initial Plate (1000m)
#4 – Send It Son – Bet @ Sportsbet
Send It Son worked home nicely to win in a recent trial and that form should hold up nicely on debut.
The Pearce-trained two-year-old has only run over 400m at the trials, but he has been hitting the line with power, which bodes well.
Watch the market for a betting guide.
Race 3. (16:54) Amelia Park BM72 (2200m)
#4 – Bonneville Black – Bet @ Sportsbet
Form is with Bonneville Black, which has rattled off three consecutive wins. The five-year-old gelding scored all three wins at Belmont and he owns a win at Ascot.
His career is progressing nicely this season and we wouldn’t be betting against him against this level of opposition.
Put on top, especially with the 3kg claimer riding.
Race 4. (17:33) Seppelt Wines BM72 (1600m)
#3 – Red Hot Tip – Bet @ Sportsbet
Red Hot Tip didn’t fire at Belmont last start but he’s better than that, so stick with him on Saturday.
The four-year-old is a two-time winner and he ended last season with two wins and two second placings.
If he returns to that form, expect another tidy effort.
Race 5. (18:10) Byron Bay Premium Lager BM78 (1400m)
#4 – Inspirational Girl – Bet @ Sportsbet
Money will be with Inspirational Girl, which has won four of her last five starts. The five-year-old mare is a six-time winner from eight starts and she has more class than this field.
Drawing barrier nine is about the only negative for this race, but she likes to get back and storm home late.
Punters will likely back her with confidence.
Race 6. (18:45) Crown Sports Bar 1MW (1500m)
#6 – Alimentaria – Bet @ Sportsbet
Alimentaria showed her class when winning three consecutive races last season and she could fire up here.
The six-year-old mare hasn’t raced for some time but the daughter of Trade Fair has a good fresh up record, so punters should be confident.
Her recent trial win at Lark Hill could be a sign of things to come.
Race 7. (19:20) Crown Perth 3YO Classic (1000m)
#6 – Clairvoyance @ $1.55 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old filly is unbeaten after three runs and she has looked well above average.
She won by 5.3 lengths at Belmont last time out and although she has yet to race at Ascot, the new track shouldn’t do her any harm.
$1.55 is a fair price given her ceiling and punters could bet that price into $1.40.
Race 8. (20:00) Crown Towers 1MW (1000m)
#16 – Real Grace – Bet @ Sportsbet
Team Williams lines up the capable three-year-old filly that is searching for her third consecutive win.
The daughter of I Am Invincible won by 3.5 lengths at Belmont last start and that is a good form guide for this contest.
Drawing barrier 19 isn’t ideal but she should go close with luck.
Race 9. (20:38) The Merrywell BM66 (1200m)
#6 – This’ll Testya – Bet @ Sportsbet
Adam Durrant lines up the five-year-old mare that owns three wins and two placings from six starts.
She is a classy type that was 1.5 lengths behind the winner last start, but she didn’t lose any admirers with the run.
Luck will be needed from the draw but expect a solid effort.
