Ascot horse racing tips
Race 1. (15:37) Oktoberfest 1MW (2200m)
#8 – Frosty Heart – Bet @ Sportsbet
Frosty Heart was good enough to score back-to-back wins earlier this season and not much went his way last start.
The six-year-old gelding is a five-time winner that is yet to fire at Ascot, but he should have his confidence up and punters will get each-way odds.
Race 2. (16:19) Westspeed Platinum Series 0MW (1200m)
#8 – Igarashi – Bet @ Sportsbet
Igarashi is a talented mare that owns a win and three placings from eight starts. She scored her maiden win two back at Belmont and followed it up with a second placing.
The daughter of Slater gets into this race with only 54.5kg on her back and carrying the light weight is ideal.
Drawing barrier four helps and she should go close again.
Race 3. (16:55) Morley Growers Market 1MW (1200m)
#6 – Secret Plan – Bet @ Sportsbet
Secret Plan scored with ease on debut when winning by over a length at Belmont. It bodes well for what could be a successful career for Team Williams.
The three-year-old gelding has the breeding to continue rising through the grades and punters might need to take short odds on Saturday.
Watch the market for any positive betting moves.
Race 4. (17:42) Amelia Park BM65 (1600m)
#8 – Notorious One – Bet @ Sportsbet
The unbeaten record of Notorious One is on the line here after two impressive wins to date. He won both starts at Belmont and Ascot shouldn’t pose too many problems.
He has yet to face any significant opposition but with only 55kg on his back, he should be able to produce a fine turn-of-foot.
Race 5. (18:18) Glenroy Chaff 1MW (1400m)
#9 – Bolshoi Gal – Bet @ Sportsbet
Bolshoi Gal has been in consistent form throughout this year and she could score her first win at Ascot.
The five-year-old owns two placings on this track and given her recent form at Belmont, she is a leading chance to get it done.
Her win two starts back is a good form guide and punters should be confident.
Race 6. (18:55) Crown Towers BM72 (1000m)
#2 – Condor Heroes – Bet @ Sportsbet
The six-year-old is a speedy type on his day and he is coming off some terrific performances. He scored consecutive wins at Ascot and Belmont before running second last time out.
The former Sydney runner is unbeaten from two starts at Ascot and he could remain perfect come Saturday.
Look for short odds to be offered by bookmakers.
Race 7. (19:30) Furphy Crawford Stakes (1000m)
#10 – Indian Pacific @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Form is with Indian Pacific, which owns five wins from seven starts. The four-year-old gelding scored impressively at Belmont last start, where he won by 4.5 lengths.
It was a big effort to score and punters are getting fair odds for this race. He should get into a good spot and score the biggest win of his career.
Race 8. (20:05) Northerly Stakes (1400m)
#6 – Massimo @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Massimo is gunning for four consecutive wins after posting three wins at Belmont. His record at Ascot consists of seven starts for three wins, so he loves this track as well.
The Adam Durrant-trained four-year-old has plenty of talent and we are surprised by the $5.50 available with bookmakers.
It is worth taking and those odds should shorten.
Race 9. (20:40) Seacorp BM72 (1400m)
#6 – Morning Song – Bet @ Sportsbet
Morning Song is fresh up after a successful campaign and the five-year-old could hit the ground running.
She hasn’t raced for 224 days but she is a three-time winner at Ascot that demands respect, and punters will get fair odds.
Look for a good return to the track for Morning Song.
