Ascot Racing Tips For January 22 2020 - Is Eurasia ready to progress?

A seven race card from Ascot awaits us in the west this Wednesday where cloudy and mild conditions are expected.

The rail shifts out to the 12m position and the track is currently a Good 4.

Ascot Best Bet

Race 5 No. 8 Eurasia

From the Steve Wolfe stable is this gelding who whilst is still doing a little wrong, isn't short on ability.

The late drift fresh suggested he'd need the hit-out coming in off one trial ($2.00 - $2.60) before improving off that to breakthrough in fine style at Albany on January 12 after he was three wide the trip off a strong tempo up front.

That maiden did go more than a length quicker than the Class 2 held just after that and third-up last time in when stepping up to the seven furlongs, he was third and within a length of the subsequent Kingston Town Classic winner Kay Cee.

Still has plenty of improvement to come and with that victory now under the belt, Eurasia can go on with it via a thin Class 1 as the best bet at Ascot.

Ascot Next Best Bet

Race 3 No. 2 Olga Luisa

A mostly consistent mare who's first-up and did win a similar race fresh last campaign carrying an extra 2kg.

As was also the case prior to that victory, she arrives off a big trial win which occured at Lark Hill January 13 where she ran more than six lengths faster than the second quickest heat that morning and that was taken out by the handy Cryptic Wonder.

The blinkers have been applied for the first time on this daughter of Blackfriars and despite a slightly tricky gate, she has shown versatility in the past which gives Chris Williams options early.

Olga Luisa looks ready to strike in a very winnable race to start her preparation.

Ascot Best Value Bet

Race 4 No. 8 Black Attack

Whilst it's perhaps a little unconventional going straight to 1800m first-up, this five-year-old has had four trials in readiness for this.

This has included three 1450m hit-outs and after a few quiet heats, she was much more prominent in her last attempt on January 13 when making ground as the eventual runner-up.

Her fresh effort last time in resulted in a third-place finish when getting home late behind Play Hard and Truly Belong who have both been competitive at listed level.

Gets in below the minimum courtesy of the 3kg claim and at massive odds, Black Attack represents nice each way value.
