Ascot Racing Tips For March 11 2020

Eight races will be run in the west from Ascot on Wednesday afternoon where mostly fine conditions are expected.

The rail shifts out to the 14m position and the track is rated a Good 4.

Ascot Best Bet

Race 8 No. 1 Divine Shadow

This four-year-old looks a cracking each way chance to end the Wednesday card in the west.

He's been very consistent over his short career to date with both career wins having come over this seven furlong distance he stays at following an excellent return as runner-up at Pinjarra on February 23.

There was plenty of merit in that performance where he was three wide and chasing a strong speed from the start but continued to find late to better a few that have been competitive at Saturday level.

Comes down in grade but only goes up half a kilo courtesy of the Campbell Rawiller claim where from barrier five, he should be able give Divine shadow a nice run in transit as the best bet at Ascot.

Ascot Next Best Bet

Race 7 No. 1 Kelly's Gem

She's admittedly had a few looks at it this campaign but back up to the 1800m, I'm willing to give this mare another chance.

This daughter of Vital Equine always needs a bit to go her way with her racing pattern, however these Apprentice Series races tend to roll along and finally with an inside alley, she can naturally land a pair or two closer.

The drop back to a mile last time out didn't suit where she was about the only one blending in out wide whilst the Ava Express form from two starts back has stood up with that gelding a subsequent Saturday winner.

With a close second on that occasion over this track and trip, Kelly's Gem gets her chance to bring up a much deserved victory in the seventh from Ascot.

Ascot Value Bet

Race 5 No. 10 Warfish

Whilst he was doing a bit wrong, this three-year-old showed nice potential last campaign around some very useful opposition.

He's trialed up superbly for this first-up assignment where in one of the fastest 950m Lark Hill trial heats on February 24, he led throughout for a dominant victory.

Warfish has drawn out here in a field that looks to have plenty of speed, however he has the versatility to take a sit if required as he has displayed in the past and the ability to sprint down in the weights could be crucial here.

Is up against some seasoned sprinters but Warfish has the most upside in this line-up and off that recent trial, he looks ready to fire fresh.
