18/1/20 Ascot tips and best bets

Best in the West

Racing returns to Ascot this Saturday following a weekend down at Pinjarra, which should be our second 'metro' track if you ask me, but that's for another day.    

A perfect sunny 28 degrees is predicted in Perth on Saturday. The track will be rated a Good 4 and the rail is out 5 metres the entire course. 

With winds tending Southerly, I'm looking for runners who settle midfield with cover and a good turn of foot.

 

Justin's tips have yielded 4% POT over the past 365 days.

Below are his three best bets for Saturday's Ascot meet, however you can get access to all of his selections in his tipping package here

Race 4 GLENROY CHAFF HANDICAP 1600m (BM68+)

The speed here is expected to be good with Patristic and Butterlea Lad rolling along in front, with Son Of Bacchus taking a sit behind that pair.

Star Value (7) has returned in tremendous order after an almost two year injury lay-off. He flashed home over the unsuitable 1200m first-up and was then held up at a crucial stage second-up, but managed to finish strongly when clear.

He's reaching peak fitness now third-up and will appreciate the strong tempo. Jarrad Noske should be able to sit three pairs back and can finish over the top of them.

Son Of Bacchus (2) does everything right in his races except win! This looks his race off a strong run 7 days ago, but it's getting too risky to back him at the short quote. Gets the perfect run behind the speed here and will have every chance again.

Patristic (5) is racing extremely well this prep, rolling along in front and giving nothing else a chance. With 52kg on his back after the claim, he is the one they will have to catch. 

Skinnen Tins (6) was enormous first up, no better than 4 wide the trip and still finished well over an unsuitable distance. Maps to get the 1x1 here and has a good second-up record. At the mile, he is not without a chance.

1st  Star Value

2nd  Son Of Bacchus

3rd  Patristic

4th  Skinnen Tins

 

Race 6 DAVID DELLA ROCCA HANDICAP 2100 (1MW 58+) 

As with all our staying races, the speed here will be slow. Magic Las Vegas should lead, with The Cat Ratcher breezing and Alimentaria box-seating behind them. 

Alimentaria (3) has really gone from strength to strength this prep and maps to get the box seat in a slowly run race. He loses the 3kg claim and concedes 1.5kg to Mackenzie Brooke who beat this mare by 1 length last time out. However, Pike alone is worth more than that. I expect him to be turning the tables here.

Mackenzie Brooke (5) has always shown staying ability and now that she has matured a bit, she's really come on strongly after stringing two wins together. Does have to carry 60kg for the first time, but she looks the main danger to Alimentaria in this.

Barbie Will Do (9) is another who seems to be maintaining consistent form over the staying trips. A dominant winner last start after a soft run, she looks ready to acquit herself well here. However, she's likely to give Alimentaria and Mackenzie Brooke a head start given she'll be forced back from the wide draw.

Plays The Game (11) was beaten 4.2 lengths in the Perth Cup. It will be interesting to see what tactics they adopt here.

1st  Alimentaria

2nd  Mackenzie Brooke

3rd  Barbie Will Do

4th  Plays The Game

 

Race 8 SEACORP HANDICAP 1000m (72+)

Expect the speed to be average here. Saracino looks the logical leader, Chix Pic and Rebel Yell will be handy. Does Plutocracy breeze or drag back?

Essential Spice (4) is a clear top pick here. She chased home gun mare Fabergino gallantly in the Summer Scorcher in sizzling time. Chris Graham takes 3kg off her back and has previously had success on this mare. She maps to be one out and two back, and from there with natural luck, she should be winning this comfortably. 

Chix Pic (3) was very good behind the low-flying Carocapo and Dance Music, who has franked that formline with a win in the Mandurah Cup. Drops in grade and maps for a very soft run and is the logical danger to Essential Spice.

Undisclosed (9) is another that Team Webster have flying right now. She was run off her feet in the Summer Scorcher and will appreciate less tempo. She will have to snag back from the wide draw and does concede 2kg to Essential Spice out of the Scorcher, but will be finishing strongly. 

Rebel Yell (7) with the right run can always impress, and he should get that here. He meets Essential Spice 3.5kg better for their last meeting and picks up the services of Pike. He should have admirers.

1st  Essential Spice

2nd  Chix Pic

3rd  Undisclosed
