Ascot horse racing tips
Race 1. (14:19) Belhus Racing Stables 1MW (1000m)
#1 – Sir Mambo – Bet @ Neds
Sir Mambo has the ability to beat this field and he’s better for his fresh up effort at Pinjarra.
The six-year-old owns four wins and 15 placings from 34 starts, which is an excellently consistent record and it bodes well.
Three of his wins have come at Ascot and he could return to his best.
Race 2. (14:56) Glenroy Chaff Plate (1200m)
#2 – Top of the Pops – Bet @ Neds
Top of the Pops lived up to his name when winning on debut at Pinjarra and he could remain unbeaten.
The son of Spirit of Boom won by 1.8 lengths as a $6 chance and we expect his odds to be much shorter on Saturday.
Any positive betting moves would be a good sign.
Race 3. (15:36) Morley Growers Market BM62 (1200m)
#4 – Success Play – Bet @ Neds
Success Play ended last preparation with consecutive wins and anything close to that form should be good enough.
The three-year-old son of Playing God owns a win at Ascot and he looks ready to fire after two runs in this campaign.
Getting the inside draw is ideal and punters could get each-way odds.
Race 4. (16:14) Tabtouch Westspeed Platinum (1600m)
#4 – Ginger Green – Bet @ Neds
Ginger Green is a consistent gelding who owns two wins and eight placings from 12 starts.
The four-year-old by Gingerbread Man won at Albany two back before placing last start, so his form checks out for this level.
It’s his first start at Ascot and it could be a winning one.
Race 5. (16:50) Mt Hallowell Waroa Day BM72 (1800m)
#1 – Double Digit – Bet @ Neds
Double Digit could get back to his best form on Saturday after two solid efforts this time in.
The eight-year-old is a 12-time winner, with five of those wins coming at Ascot, and it’s not an overly hard field.
Getting 3kg off his back helps and punters should get generous odds.
Race 6. (17:30) Crown Perth BM66 (1200m)
#1 – Apple Schnapps – Bet @ Neds
Apple Schnapps needed the fresh up run at Ascot and we’re expecting his form to improve.
The four-year-old is a two-time winner at Ascot and a six-time winner overall, so he has the class to beat this field.
Drawing barrier two is ideal and he gets weight off his back, so he’s worth putting on top.
Race 7. (18:08) Sheila Gwynne Classic (1400m)
#8 – Buzzoom @ $2.25 – Bet @ Neds
Buzzoom was beaten last time out but the three-year-old filly can bounce back in fine style.
The three-year-old daughter of Safeguard looked much better when winning fresh up and the five-time Ascot winner has class on her side.
Carrying 54kg is ideal and we’ll happily take the $2.25.
Race 8. (18:38) Tabtouch Better Your Bet BM66 (1600m)
#1 – Kia Ora Star – Bet @ Neds
Kia Ora Star returned to winning form at Ascot last time out and that form could continue.
The experienced eight-year-old relished the rise in distance and stepping up to the mile should be ideal. He owns five placings over 1600m, so he should enjoy it.
The 3kg claim is ideal and we’re expecting a nice effort.
Race 9. (19:10) Amelia Park 1MW (1400m)
#4 – My Mate – Bet @ Neds
My Mate owns three wins from five starts and his efforts at Ascot include a win and a placing.
The son of God Has Spoken comes off a third placing at Ascot and that followed consecutive wins at Ascot and Pinjarra.
Barrier three is ideal and we expect another top effort.
