Ascot horse racing tips
Race 1. (15:23) Belhus Racing Stables BM62 (1000m)
#5 – Metallon @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Metallon owns two wins and a placing from three starts, so he has made a good start to his career.
The three-year-old son of Oratorio won by a length on this track last start and we struggle to find anything wrong with that form.
Follow the early betting moves and he gets the inside draw to help.
Race 2. (16:08) Tabtouch Westspeed (1400m)
#9 – Stella Fair @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Stella Fair is gunning for three consecutive wins after scoring at Pinjarra and York.
The four-year-old daughter of Trade Fair has yet to race at Ascot, but it’s a track she should enjoy and she has drawn well.
Punters get value odds for the favourite so she’s worth backing.
Race 3. (16:49) Ascend Sales Trophies BM66 (1600m)
#6 – National Guard @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
National Guard looked good earlier this preparation when winning back-to-back races, so anything close to that form is good enough.
The six-year-old son of War Front wasn’t far behind when fifth at Ascot last start and he runs best at this distance.
Barrier two is ideal and he should be in it for a long way.
Race 4. (17:28) Crown Perth BM72 (1200m)
#8 – River Rubicon @ $2.25 – Bet @ Sportsbet
River Rubicon has won four of his five starts and he’s shooting for his fourth consecutive win.
The three-year-old won by 1.8 lengths on this track last start, which was a fantastic effort and it bodes well for another win.
This is harder but carrying 54kg evens it out. Put him on top.
Race 5. (18:12) Furphy Gimcrack Stakes (1100m)
#1 – Amelia’s Jewel @ $2 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Amelia’s Jewel won by 2.3 lengths on debut and we’re not surprised by the money coming for her.
The daughter of Siyouni didn’t give them much of a chance to win and she looks like a nice type for the future.
Take the $2 before she firms to an odds-on quote.
Race 6. (18:45) Amelia Park Perth Stakes (1100m)
#11 – Givemeonereason @ $3.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Givemeonereason hasn’t picked an easy race to debut in but the two-year-old looks to have upside.
The son of Magnus has won twice at the trials and there has been a solid move in betting markets, which bodes well.
Getting the inside draw with a light weight is ideal.
Race 7. (19:20) Glenroy Chaff 1MW (1400m)
#1 – Time Scale @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Time Scale comes off a win at Ascot by a length and we like her chances of going back-to-back.
The four-year-old daughter of Press Statement built strongly towards the win and she does her best racing at Ascot.
2kg comes off her back and punters get each-way odds to enjoy.
Race 8. (20:00) Seacorp Grandstand Cup (1500m)
#1 – Coming Around @ $6.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Coming Around is a professional four-time winner at Ascot and his class should take him close.
He hasn’t been running at his best this season, but he could be the overlooked runner at each-way odds.
Punters get a good price and he’s worth the risk.
Race 9. (20:40) Morley Growers Market 1MW (1800m)
#11 – Pale Rider @ $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Pale Rider did enough fresh up when running second at Ascot and anything close to that run is good enough.
The three-year-old son of Rommel is only a one-time winner from eight starts, but he should have won more than that.
55kg on his back helps and we’re putting him on top.
