Ascot horse racing tips
Race 1. (14:14) Tabtouch Platinum Handicap (1000m)
#2 – Snipillicious – Bet @ Neds
Adam Durrant lines up the four-year-old gelding who looked good winning two back at Ascot.
The four-year-old son of Snippetson didn’t fully fire at Ascot last start, but he was only 2.1 lengths behind the winner.
Getting the inside draw could be all he needs to win.
Race 2. (14:49) Crown Perth BM62 (1000m)
#3 – Tadweer – Bet @ Neds
Tadweer started his career with consecutive wins at Ballarat and Sale before running seventh at Flemington.
Melbourne form bodes well for racing in Perth and his seventh came behind Profiteer, which is excellent form for this level of racing.
We expect him to put a couple of lengths on this field.
Race 3. (15:20) Belhus Racing Stables Plate (1100m)
#5 – Miss Drakova – Bet @ Neds
Miss Drakova has race experience and that could put her ahead of the rest of the field.
The two-year-old filly by Capitalist ran fifth at Ascot on debut before placing last time out behind Swear to God.
That run followed consecutive trial wins, so she has speed to burn.
Race 4. (16:00) Tabtouch Better Your Bet BM66 (1400m)
#1 – Charleton Eddie – Bet @ Neds
Charleton Eddie is a five-time winner from 19 starts and three of those wins have come at Ascot.
The four-year-old son of Shooting to Win is classy at best and we think he can turn his form around to win on Saturday.
Getting 2kg off his back brings him into contention.
Race 5. (16:40) Amelia Park BM72 (1100m)
#4 – It’sarayday – Bet @ Neds
Simon Miller lines up the three-year-old gelding who has been primed with a trial placing at Belmont.
The son of Winning Rupert is a three-time winner from five starts and he owns a win and a placing from three starts at Ascot.
He gets the inside draw and that’s enough to see the race go his way.
Race 6. (17:15) City of Belmont 1MW (1200m)
#3 – Warm ‘N’ Fuzzy – Bet @ Neds
The four-year-old is shooting for three consecutive wins after scoring by a half-length at Ascot.
He owns five wins and four placings from 15 starts, so the record speaks for itself and he could improve his record on Saturday.
3kg comes off his back and we wouldn’t be leaving him out.
Race 7. (17:45) Eurythmic Stakes (2200m)
#1 – Marocchino @ $5.50 – Bet @ Neds
Marocchino is nearing his best after posting a placing at Ascot, but he will need to turn the tables on Sentimental Queen.
The five-year-old is good enough to get back to winning form and he’s a five-time winner at Ascot, which can’t be overlooked.
Punters get each-way odds and they’re worth taking.
Race 8. (18:15) Belmont City of Opportunity 1MW (2200m)
#2 – General Grant – Bet @ Neds
General Grant scored a win two back at Ascot before placing behind Buster Bash last time out.
The four-year-old gelding is never too far away from the prize and there are no superstars in this race, so he could take advantage.
Barrier two is ideal and punters should be confident.
Race 9. (18:52) Drummond Golf BM72 (1600m)
#8 – Pretty Frair – Bet @ Neds
Pretty Frair scored back-to-back wins last preparation and she comes off a trial win at Belmont.
The five-year-old daughter of Blackfrairs has yet to win from six attempts at Ascot, but she has class on her side.
Carrying 55kg is ideal and punters should get each-way odds.
