Ascot horse racing tips
Race 1. (14:38) Westspeed Platinum Maiden (1600m)
#1 – Trade Fair Express – Bet @ Sportsbet
Trade Fair Express comes into this race following four placings from his last five starts, which shows good consistency.
He has yet to win from 15 starts but he owns 10 placings and if there’s a runner that deserves a win, it’s the five-year-old gelding.
Race 2. (15:18) Tabtouch Better Your Bet Maiden (1200m)
#6 – Keytrade – Bet @ Sportsbet
Keytrade did enough to finish fifth on debut at Belmont and we’re expecting that form to hold up well this season.
The son of Trade Fair was only 2.2 lengths behind the winner on that occasion and from barrier eight, he should get a good run behind the speed.
Race 3. (15:59) Crown Perth Plate (1000m)
#4 – The Lady Is A Vamp – Bet @ Sportsbet
She was heavily backed on debut and she lost no admirers when narrowly suffering defeat behind a smart type.
It was a good run at Ascot and she was able to clear out from the third runner, so she looks to have the class edge over this field with Fatale Femme.
Put her on top to turn the tables.
Race 4. (16:38) Guinness BM72 (2200m)
#5 – Bonneville Black – Bet @ Sportsbet
Bonneville Black rattled off three consecutive wins prior to finishing third at Ascot last time out. He doesn’t have the best record on this track, but this isn’t the hardest field to beat.
He is a five-time winner from 21 starts that has the confidence up and we’re expecting a bounce-back performance.
Race 5. (17:14) Schweppes BM66 (1400m)
#6 – Western Pride – Bet @ Sportsbet
Money should be with Western Pride, which resumed with a second placing at Belmont and that form reads well.
The five-year-old mare is a proven winner of four from six starts and with that fitness under her belt, she should be finishing too strongly for this field.
3kg comes off her back to help with the weight.
Race 6. (17:55) Devil’s Lair 1MW (1200m)
#10 – Oristano – Bet @ Sportsbet
Oristano was good enough to score back-to-back wins to open his account this season, so he’s worth sticking with.
The four-year-old finished fourth at Ascot last start and that came against a big field, so he should be well-suited to this race.
Each-way odds should be available for punters on race day.
Race 7. (18:30) Belgravia Stakes (1200m)
#4 – Clairvoyance @ $1.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Clairvoyance is a superstar in the making and after four starts for four wins, another successful outing is on the cards.
The three-year-old cruised home last start and despite a bar plate going on here, which is concerning, she should be too good for them.
Take the short odds but watch the market closely.
Race 8. (19:10) Amelia Park BM78 (1200m)
#8 – Celebrity Queen – Bet @ Sportsbet
Celebrity Queen is a smart type that owns five wins from eight starts and she should be right in the mix once again.
The Williams-trained four-year-old has two wins on this track and she looked good winning at Belmont last time out.
It’s a competitive field but punters will get decent odds.
Race 9. (19:45) Irish Day 1MW (1800m)
#1 – Adornment – Bet @ Sportsbet
Adornment is finding it tough to get back to winning form but she is classy at best and she only needs confidence.
The Durrant-trained mare has had 12 of her 14 career starts at Ascot and she has two wins and five placings.
She should be tough to beat and punters will be getting each-way odds.
