Ascot Tips February 24


Ascot Value Bet - Race 3 No. 4 Excelestial

She's somewhat of an underrated galloper, who has more ability than her record to date suggests and still has upside as a four-year-old approaching what is now just her fourth racing preparation.

After having some excuses in her first two outings last winter, we managed to catch her at big odds third-up (25/1) where she got the better of Excellent Dream, a galloper that has won her last two outings at Saturday level and is rated well above anything in this line-up.

While this mare generally needs a bit of luck in transit with her usual racing pattern, she did show an ability to settle a little closer towards the back-end of her last campaign and off a good albeit quiet trial behind Group One winner Celebrity Queen, Excelestial is capable in a race of this strength.


Ascot Best Bet - Race 4 No. 6 Born To Try

Barring somewhat of a flat second-up effort where she was a heavily supported favourite at Pinjarra ($4.00-$3.00), this four-year-old has been building towards a win and on Wednesday, arguably finds her weakest assignment to date this preparation.

The daughter of Blackfriars in on the seven-day turnaround from last Wednesday's Bunbury program where she did drift late in the betting ($2.90-$3.70) and bumped into a progressive filly in Chiclett, who ultimately had the better turn-of-foot, but this mare continued to fight late.

They did manage to clear out from the rest of the field late and with her only effort over a similar trip resulting in a runner-up to a handy Fuhrer in good time, this looks the perfect opportunity to attempt the mile in a rather thin race.


Ascot Next Best Bet - Race 7 No. 3 Pablo's Poem

A gelding who looked a genuine stakes-class galloper in his two and three-year-old days, he's obviously had his fair share of problems since 2018, resuming off a long break on January 4, 2020 where he was a little plain albeit not beaten far and was tipped straight out.

Resuming last spring with an even midfield effort behind the smart Dom To Shoot, it looked to be going further south for Pablo's Poem after a flat effort on October 24 but off a shorter break, he may have turned the corner where following a big trial win, was well backed first-up on February 13 ($10.00-$6.50).

While the 12th-place finish doesn't read well, the grey finally found the line with some gusto when recording a race-fastest last 600m (33.49) in that 1000m event and up to 1200m here along with a nice drop-in class, is the one to bea if he can build off that.
