Ascot horse racing tips
Race 1. (14:04) Seacorp Handicap (1600m)
#4 – Success Play – Bet @ Sportsbet
Success Play comes off a win at Northam by a short margin, and he looks capable of kicking on with it.
The Neville Parnham-trained three-year-old has taken a while to hit his straps, but he doesn’t have to beat much in this field.
Look for a strong betting push with Success Play.
Race 2. (14:44) Amelia Park Plate (1000m)
#1 – Ain’t No Other Man – Bet @ Sportsbet
Speed is with three-year-old gelding, who owns three wins and a placing from six career starts.
The son of Gingerbread Man scored a quality win at Belmont when last in work, and he has been given a soft trial since.
He owns two wins at Ascot, so the conditions should be right up his alley.
Race 3. (15:30) Tabtouch Westspeed 0MW (1200m)
#5 – Snippy Miss – Bet @ Sportsbet
Snippy Miss comes off consecutive third placings, and although she’s struggling to win, she doesn’t face a tough field.
The five-year-old owns two wins and 15 placings from 32 starts, so she isn’t lacking consistency. She should be right in the thick of the action again.
Race 4. (16:15) Glenroy Chaff Handicap (1400m)
#10 – Fashion Queen – Bet @ Sportsbet
Fashion Queen is the class runner of the field after posting three wins from only five starts.
The Adam Durrant-trained mare scored at $1.50 odds fresh up, which was a nice hit-out for this race.
She gets William Pike in the saddle and punters should be expecting big odds.
Race 5. (16:54) Crown Perth 1MW (1400m)
#9 – God Has Chosen – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Lindsay Smith-trained four-year-old has yet to finish worse than second from four starts, so the class is there.
He kicked off his career with consecutive wins at Albany, and his recent placing at Northam is a good betting guide.
Pike takes over the riding duties and the light weight is ideal.
Race 6. (17:35) All Flags Signs & Banners 1MW (1800m)
#7 – Real Passion – Bet @ Sportsbet
Real Passion showed ability when second last start and she could improve enough to beat this field.
The Durrant-trained daughter of Pierro owns two wins and two placings from eight starts, so she is typically around the mark.
Barrier three with a light weight should take her close.
Race 7. (18:14) Mumm Champagne BM66 (1600m)
#8 – Real Charisma – Bet @ Sportsbet
Real Charisma is a quality type in the making after posting four wins and two placings from six starts.
She returned this season with a half-length win at Ascot, and she will only get better with more racing under her belt.
She could be a runner we see in Melbourne next year.
Race 8. (18:52) Quayclean BM72 (1000m)
#7 – Wilchino – Bet @ Sportsbet
Wilchino is gunning for five wins on the bounce, and she’s an up and comer in Perth.
The five-year-old mare owns six wins from nine starts, including a four-length romp on this track last time out.
This is a smart field, but everything is in her favour.
Race 9. (19:30) Prince of Wales Stakes (1000m)
#2 – Elite Street @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Elite Street comes off a win at Ascot, which was his fourth wins from six attempts on the track.

His opening odds were taken quickly, so jump on.

#9 – Western Empire @ $2.45 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Form is with Western Empire, who rattled off four consecutive wins to close his last campaign.

His odds are drifting, but punters are getting value.
Race 11. (20:45) Byron Bay Premium Lager BM72 (1800m)
#4 – Roman Flirt – Bet @ Sportsbet
Roman Flirt is searching for her third consecutive win, and we’re putting her on top in an even field.
