Ascot horse racing tips
Race 1. (15:22) Amelia Park Plate (1000m)
#1 – Revitup – Bet @ Neds
Revitup is a quality filly with three wins from four starts and she has every chance to kick off her campaign with a win.
The daughter of Demerit won at Ascot by a length last start when beating Costume Party and she has massive upside.
Punters shouldn’t expect big odds on Saturday.
Race 2. (16:02) Tabtouch Westspeed Platinum (1000m)
#5 – Snipillicious – Bet @ Neds
The Adam Durrant-trained gelding won last time out at Belmont Park before going for a spell, which should be a good form guide.
He is a two-time winner from 11 starts, but he’s rarely too far away from the prize and this distance suits best.
His two recent Lark Hill trial wins bode well.
Race 3. (16:42) City of Belmont 1MW (1200m)
#1 – Alien from Mars – Bet @ Neds
Alien from Mars is a six-year-old mare who runs her best races at Ascot and she could add another on Saturday.
The daughter of War Chant comes off a win at Ascot and she has finished in the money in six of her 12 starts here.
It’s not an overly good field, so her chance of winning are high.
Race 4. (17:22) Schweppes BM72 (1600m)
#9 – Born to Try – Bet @ Neds
Born to Try is better than her form suggests and she does some of her best racing on this track.
The Lindsay Smith-trained mare didn’t fire behind Sowar last start, but this level of racing suits and she’s a two-time winner over the mile.
Punters could get a value price with only 54kg on her back.
Race 5. (18:00) Heineken 3 BM66 (1400m)
#4 – Phoneme – Bet @ Neds
Phoneme is a professional seven-time winner from 40 starts and five of those wins have come over this distance.
The six-year-old gelding rarely runs a bad race at Ascot and getting the inside draw should bode well.
We expect bookmakers to have him firm in the betting and he’s a good bet.
Race 6. (18:37) Crown Perth BM78 (1200m)
#5 – Chantorque – Bet @ Neds
Chantorque scored a win at Ascot two back and she followed it up with a third placing at Ascot.
The four-year-old daughter of War Chant owns five wins and three placings at Ascot, so she’s a course specialist with plenty of upside.
She will get back and hit the line with power and she attracts attention.
Race 7. (19:12) Schweppes Melvista Stakes (2200m)
#10 – Alaskan God @ $2.90 – Bet @ Neds
Alaskan Gold is gunning for four consecutive wins after winning by 3.3 lengths over 1800m last time out.
The three-year-old son of Playing God is unbeaten in two starts on the track and he’s a stakes winner in the waiting, so the $2.90 is a fair price.
This looks well within his reach and the early betting signs are positive.
Race 8. (19:50) City of Belmont W.A. Oaks (2400m)
#1 – Constant Dreaming @ $1.95 – Bet @ Neds
Constant Dreaming is shooting for three consecutive wins after scoring at Ascot her last two starts.
The three-year-old filly scored by just under a length last time out and she’s unbeaten in two starts on this track.
$1.95 is getting short, but she’s the class filly in the field.
Race 9. (20:30) Belmont City 1MW (1600m)
#6 – Catalpa – Bet @ Neds
Catalpa comes off a win at Ascot and he’s good enough to produce back-to-back wins.
The three-year-old gelding likes to sit on the pace and show a good kick in the straight, which is a good asset to have.
Barrier nine isn’t a worry and punters could get each-way odds.
