Ascot horse racing tips

Race 1. (13:54) Schweppes BM62 (1000m)

#1 – Metallon – Bet @ Neds

The three-year-old gelding owns four wins from five starts, including all three starts at Ascot.

The son of Oratorio won by a nose last time out as a $4.80 chance, so punters shouldn’t be expecting big odds on Saturday.

Getting 3kg off his back could be enough to win.

Race 2. (14:33) Tabtouch Westspeed Platinum (1500m)

#5 – Snippy Miss – Bet @ Neds

Adam Durrant lines up the five-year-old mare who is only a three-time winner from 40 starts, but she rarely runs a bad race.

She does her best racing at Ascot and she comes off a second placing on the track, so she’s getting close to another win.

Drawing the rails is ideal and she’ll be in the race for a long way.

Race 3. (15:18) Crown Perth (1100m)

#9 – The Witch Doctor – Bet @ Neds

The Witch Doctor scored a win at Ascot two starts back before finishing well enough last time out.

She owns a win and a placing from six starts on the track and there are no superstars in this field, so she could take advantage.

Carrying 55kg on her back bodes well for another tidy effort.

Race 4. (15:58) Seacorp 1MW (1800m)

#10 – Sunsphere – Bet @ Neds

Sunsphere was only 1.4 lengths behind the winner last time out and he could improve on that result.

The four-year-old gelding has had three starts at Ascot for two placings, so he’s getting close to breaking through here.

We expect the Durrant-trained gelding to sit handy and kick strongly.

Race 5. (16:34) Andrich Cousins Raceday BM72 (1600m)

#1 – Dom to Shoot – Bet @ Neds

Dom to Shoot is a course specialist with 20 starts for four wins and nine placings, so we’re putting him on top.

The four-year-old son of Shooting to Win was a narrow margin behind the winner last start and he’s running well enough to go one better.

He gets 2kg off his back and it could be enough to win.

Race 6. (17:10) Bill Prins 80th Birthday BM78 (1000m)

#7 – Apple Schnapps – Bet @ Neds

Apple Schnapps is a six-time winner from 19 starts, and although he often likes a couple of runs, he could hit the ground running.

The four-year-old gelding is a two-time winner at Ascot and he has been facing strong fields throughout his career.

Getting the inside draw with 55.5kg on his back is in his favour.

Race 7. (17:50) Happy Anniversary C Burton BM66 (1400m)

#2 – Brooklyn Pier – Bet @ Neds

Brooklyn Pier scored by a nose two back at Ascot before running second behind Comes a Time last time out.

The four-year-old son of Magnus won’t have to do much work off the inside draw and he should be on the pace throughout.

Punters could get each-way odds on race day.

Race 8. (18:25) W.A. Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m)

#2 – Snowdome @ $3.90 – Bet @ Neds

Snowdome showed a good turn-of-foot to win at Ascot last start and he could win the feature of the day.

The Neville Parnham-trained colt won by 1.5 lengths against a tidy field and rising to 1400m should be ideal for the son of Rommel.

We expect money to come for him on race day, so lock in the $3.90.

Race 9. (19:02) Amelia Park BM66 (1200m)

#1 – Mood Swings – Bet @ Neds

Mood Swings isn’t always the easiest horse to follow, but he has won and placed from his last two starts.

The five-year-old won by a half-length two back before finishing a narrow margin behind Buzzoom last start, so there is plenty of upside.

Punters should get each-way odds.
