Ascot Racing Tips For March 7 2020

The Listed Supremacy Stakes is the feature on the nine race card from Ascot this Saturday where the rail is in the 7m position.

No rain and mild conditions are predicted on a surface that is rated a Good 4.

Ascot Best Bet

Race 6 No. 1 Laverrod

This son of rising star sire Toronado is clearly the one to beat here off exposed form.

The furthest he's been beaten in five career starts to date is a 1.46 length third in the Listed Lee-Steere Classic over the carnival period and coming back from stakes company, was able to breakthrough before being spelled.

He arrives here off a strong trial win at Lark Hill on February 24 when ridden out late to score in a hit-out that suggested that a hard run five furlongs straight up shouldn't be an issue.

Against what's effectively a midweek Class 1 three-year-old field, the ability of Laverrod should see him home with any luck as the best bet at Ascot this Saturday.

Ascot Next Best Bet

Race 8 No. 2 Morning Song

She's been up a long time which is the query, but off her soft last start win in a very similar race on February 22, I'm struggling to see why she can't do it again.

Racing in the famous cerise and white colors of Bob Peters, she's won four of her last six starts and in the process, has worked through the grades quite comfortably.

Whilst admittedly she received all the favors last time out, Morning Song maps for pretty well the same run again where she can lob in the first few pairs from barrier four and actually drops 1kg with the Chris Graham claim.

This four-year-old is putting together a good record and only needs to hold her current form to be saluting again in a rather weak race.

Ascot Value Bet

Race 9 No. 4 Bobcat Johnnie

He's making up for lost time is this seven-year-old who had issues early days but has strung together a good lot of consistent performances since resuming off a long lay off back in September of last year.

Following five runs in a campaign that included two wins and three seconds, he was sent for a spell with the blinkers coming off for his January 29 resumption.

Now with two solid chasing efforts under the belt and expected to strip fitter following a last start seven furlong attempt, the blinkers have now been re-applied.

The draw is a little sticky but they're expected to be more positive early with the important gear change and is a big price compared to his last two efforts and neither of them were bad.
