Ascot horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:48) Morley Growers Market Plate (1000m)
#1 – Swear to God – Bet @ Neds
Swear to God looked good when winning on debut at Ascot by 1.8 lengths before placing last time out.
The two-year-old son of Playing God wasn’t far behind Snowdome as the $2.30 chance and we expect similar odds this time around.
Getting 1.5kg off his back helps.
Race 2. (14:28) Belhus Racing Stables BM72 (1400m)
#3 – God Has Chosen – Bet @ Neds
God Has Chosen is a slick customer with five wins and three second placings from nine starts.
The four-year-old gelding owns three wins at Ascot and he’s fitter after a fourth placing fresh up on the track.
Punters shouldn’t expect big odds off the inside draw.
Race 3. (15:08) Crown Perth 1MW (1600m)
#3 – Blow Me Out – Bet @ Neds
Blow Me Out capped off solid form with a win at Pinjarra and she is good enough to go back-to-back.
The four-year-old daughter of Alfred Nobel is a past winner and placegetter at Ascot, so running on this track is fine.
Drawing barrier four is ideal and she should get every chance in the run.
Race 4. (15:44) Tabtouch Better Your Bet BM66 (1800m)
#3 – Lonehand Larry – Bet @ Neds
Lonehand Larry showed a nice turn-of-foot when winning at Ascot and the rise in distance is ideal.
The Summer Dickson-trained five-year-old doesn’t win all that often, but he looks like a nice stayer in the making.
Punters could get each-way value odds on race day.
Race 5. (16:24) The Carbine Club of WA BM66 (1000m)
#2 – Mercanto – Bet @ Neds
The four-year-old gelding is a four-time winner from 11 starts and most of his best form comes at Ascot.
He owns three wins and three placings at Ascot, including a 1.5-length win as the odds-on favourite last time out.
It’s not an easy field and he’s fresh up, but we’re in his camp.
Race 6. (16:59) Amelia Park BM62 (1400m)
#4 – Galactic Storm – Bet @ Neds
Galactic Storm shoots for three consecutive wins after scoring by a half-length last time out at Pinjarra.
The three-year-old son of Street Boss looks to have a fair amount of ability and he won despite the saddle slipping late.
It’s a good sign and drawing barrier two is a bonus.
Race 7. (17:37) Heineken 3 BM72 (1200m)
#4 – Chantorque – Bet @ Neds
Chantorque is the testing material in this race after posting six wins from 18 starts, including five wins on the track.
The four-year-old mare has been mixing her form of late, but she was only a half-length behind Express Time last start and that warrants attention.
Getting weight off her back could make all the difference.
Race 8. (18:12) Westspeed Platinum Autumn Final (1200m)
#2 – Snipillicious @ $3.30 – Bet @ Neds
Snipillicious comes off consecutive wins and the four-year-old son of Snippetson is improving with every run.
He won by 1.5 lengths last start, and despite rising in class, he’s good enough to handle it. He is drawn well and that is ideal.
After opening at $3.10, his odds have drifted but expect to see him start around $3.30.
Race 9. (18:52) Schweppes 1MW (1200m)
#4 – Warm ‘n’ Fuzzy – Bet @ Neds
The four-year-old was too good for them at Ascot last time out and a repeat win could be on the cards.
He is a four-time winner from 14 starts overall, including twice at the distance and his second-up form is good enough.
We wouldn’t be surprised to see him fighting out the finish.
