Ascot Tips March 13


Ascot Roughie - Race 3 No. 8 Street Fair

This galloper became a very costly one for punters last preparation, going down at short odds on numerous occasions, but he does look better placed over these shorter trips, with a strong 1600m-2000m seeing him out late.

While Street Fair is still eligible for Class 1 company, this is quite a weak Saturday event and with that low rating, it does see him in on the 54.5kg minimum with the in-form Clint Johnston-Porter taking the reins, who is striking at 20% in March.

Although he only has a short sprint, what this five-year-old does have in his favour over many of these rivals is a turn-of-foot and if saved up for one last crack at them late, could easily figure somewhere in the finish at a double figure quote.


Ascot Value Bet - Race 4 No. 1 Sir Mambo

He doesn't exactly win out of turn but despite a pair of flops over his 27-start career to date, you're doing well to find an uncompetitive effort from this five-year-old who had excuses second-up and does find a suitable race here.

The son of War Chant generally needs the run fresh, which was no exception on January 21 despite holding his ground for a fourth-place finish and following that, was four-wide throughout the 1200m on February 13, but still stuck on for third despite covering so much extra ground.

With the second favourite in Universal Pleasure drawn out, the option is there for Maddi Derrick to hold up early from barrier five and have it working early, while with Secret Plan likely heading back, the map does favour Sir Mambo, who is at an each-way price.


Ascot Next Best Bet - Race 6 No. 7 Miss Marietta

This is admittedly a little harder albeit she only just missed second-up in a stronger race to what is on offer here and as an in-form mare in what isn't an overly strong affair, I don't see any reason why she can't go back-to-back.

The writing was on the wall for Miss Marietta prior to that third-up attempt at Pinjarra, where she was sent out an odds-on favourite and after getting off the fence early to sustain a long run, was ridden like a good thing then saluted accordingly.

Her ability to do that off a slow tempo and still put that margin on her rivals was impressive, so from potentially a box-seat position give they have drawn barrier one, she can sit then sprint (something a lot of these can't do) should they find the back of the likely early leader in Melareb.


Ascot Best Bet - Race 8 No. 4 River Beau

A gelding who generally improves second-up and off a strong return performance on February 27 where he was a little tardy away from a wide draw, trainer Bruce Watkins has placed him well this Saturday, with a little drop in grade.

At 32.85, River Beau recorded comfortably the fastest last 600m for that entire Ascot program when sprinting hard late from the rear but was out gunned by the hard-fit Plutocracy, who had the suck run into that contest late and he's a galloper that is rated well above anything in this field.

The four-year-old had no luck in his last second-up attempt when three-wide the trip and defeated by the smart Chantorque, but with a low draw here in four, we're looking for a more positive Jason Whiting early, as there doesn't look to be as much speed engaged this time around.

River Beau was terrific fresh and with predicted improvement second-up, finds a winnable assignment in Race 8 from Ascot this Saturday.

The in-form Miss Marietta (Race 6) can progress further off a strong last start victory.

Sir Mambo had excuses second-up but from a better draw, is a good each-way chance in Race 4.
