The BetDeluxe racing gurus have found all the best bets and tips for the day.
ascot Race 1
#1 Bandalera Beau
The four-kilo claiming apprentice in Taj Dyson gets a chance to make a big impact in town with Bandalera Beau.
This particular horse won very impressively over 1400 metres when resuming off a spell.
He was very heavily tried in the betting and landed the cash for the punters, so we expect that trend to continue here as he should enjoy a lovely trailing run from a nice barrier.
The instructions for Dyson should be fairly simple; just cleanly, get this horse on the pace and find some cover.
Suggested Bet: Bandalera Beau win at $3.5
Suggested Exotic: Boxed Trifecta – 1, 2, 6
ascot race 3
#4 pixie chix
It is either the class of the top weight who has to carry 60.5kgs or the fitness of the raced horses.
We are going to side with the fitness of Pixie Chix who has been racing in in open grade throughout his preparation.
Despite not winning, the three-year-old gelding gets arguably his best chance at breaking through for career victory number two.
Usually over 1000 metres, good horses can usually deal without having race fitness on their side, but Spin The Knife will have to overcome 1100 metres in this event which can bring horses undone.
Pixie Chix looks as though he will get that suck run tucked in behind the leaders.
Paul Harvey should be able to save this sprinter’s dash for the last 250 metres of the race where he tries to angle out for his run.
Expecting the market to side with this horse as we get closer to race time.
Suggested Bet: Pixie Chix win at $4.4
Suggest Exotic: Quinella 1 & 4
ascot race 4
#3 Sheeza Belter
There is no better jockey in Western Australia at the moment than Clint Johnson-Porter.
The man they dub ‘The Hyphen’ has been in career best form and can easily make it two-from-two aboard this two-year-old filly.
He piloted her to a sharp victory on debut over 1100 metres when she was a drifter in the market from $5 to $8.
With the race-day experience under her belt and the fitness elevation she will get from that debut effort, she is the lead winning hope in this event.
Suggested Bet: Sheeza Belter win at $3.4
ascot race 8
#5 Beau Zoom
Looking around the race form of the fit horses in this event and going with the resuming Beau Zoom.
He definitely the spell when he did after doing a heap of racing through the winter months on soft tracks.
Getting back to bone-dry ground during the summer looks as though it will suit him much better and he will have zip in his legs following the break.
Draws the perfect barrier to save all the ground and no do too much work in the run.
Backing him each-way in what looks to be a very open race.
Suggested Bet: Beau Zoom each-way at $9 the win and $3 the place.
Suggested Exotic: Boxed First Four – 1, 2, 4, 5, 8
