Ascot Tips December 16


Ascot Best Bet - Race 1 No. 3 Warm 'N' Fuzzy

Set to return in his second racing preparation at Ascot on Wednesday is this gelding from the Neville Parnham stable who although was safely held in two runs via his first campaign, was still competitive and they have proven to be elite form lines whilst the recent trial win indicated that he's returned in good order.

He was supported prior his debut ($8.50-$6.00) but had to settle for fourth behind what's turned out to be a smart quinella in Watch Me Dance (three-time group winner) and Madam Torio (won four of nine) then followed that with a fifth-place finish behind the Wolfe-trained runner again and Dom To Shoot (Group One placed).

Warm 'N' Fuzzy looked a much more furnished galloper with the blinkers on for his Belmont trial victory on December 7 when extending away for a big win and likely to go forward here under Brad Parnham, he should get his chance to breakthrough in the opener.


Ascot Value Bet - Race 3 No. 1 Keep It Hush

Honest but limited is this hard fit four-year-old who strikes a Maiden with no standouts and the whole campaign to date has indicated that the 1500m journey he now finds himself over should suit now following a pair of Northam outings over 1300m.

Although never threatening, the third-place finish when finding the line on November 19 had some merit prior to his December 3 attempt where the 3kg claimer did get a little lost early and as a consequence, had Keep It Hush working three-wide throughout but he still managed to find the line fairly under the circumstances.

What he does have in his favour here is barrier one where over this longer journey in a field without much speed on paper, should be able to at least box-seat early and only needs to run up to his recent efforts to finish top three/four from a good map.


Ascot Next Best Bet - Race 5 No. 5 Worth A Risk

Although this is a little harder, we can't fault the preparation so far for this mare who after showing some promise over her first two campaigns, has now gone on with it in recording back-to-back victories and again draws well for Joseph Azzopardi who can lead or box-seat from gate one.

By Written Tycoon and out of the mare Risktaker who is from a superb family (half-sister to four stakes winners and a daughter of a WA Oaks winner), Worth A Risk was travelling like the winner a long way out on October 4 when safely accounting for Said No One, a galloper that subsequently placed behind a smart Notorious One prior to breaking his Maiden.

She sustained a strong gallop to prevail over 1400m when nearly seven weeks between runs via her latest victory and with the benefit of an inside draw, where they can kick up and lead or take the sit off Ohbeeh, they have options and she looks progressive enough complete the winning hat-trick.
