Ascot Tips March 17


Ascot Best Bet - Race 2 No. 3 American Grin

While there's no prizes for finding him at a short quote, off two excellent and eye-catching performances to start this preparation, he should be breaking through on Wednesday in what is a weak Maiden.

Showing ability in his first two starts last March against some useful company, American Grin just never came up in his second campaign but off a pair of decent trials, rattled home first-up where he was only a stride off prevailing at Bunbury, a circuit that can be tough to make ground on.

American Grin was no match for what looks a handy one in Elafella at Pinjarra, but at 34.98, recorded the comfortably the fastest last 600m of that event when coming from the rear and on Wednesday, can settle closer now he finally draws well (barrier three) for Mitchell Pateman.


Ascot Value Bet - Race 5 No. 3 Lyle's Choice

A big strapping gelding is this progressive four-year-old who is improving and while he's likely to come on further from whatever is delivered here second-up, he can just about pinch this at a good price.

Getting past a mile was a key in his last campaign, where he was able to string back-to-back victories in November and although was still very competitive in a pursuit of a winning hat-trick, had just come to the end of his preparation on November 25, but certainly hasn't gone backwards this time in.

Off two trials, including a strong 1450m hit-out,  Lyle's Choice made good inroads as runner-up behind Miss Marietta on March 3, who franked the form with another comfortable win at Ascot last Saturday and dropping 3.5kg, is well in after the Laqdar Romely claim, a talented apprentice who was aboard for this galloper's last victory.


Ascot Each-Way Bet - Race 7 No. 2 Wiener Waltz

Even with very little first-up form, following a good Belmont trial on January 18 and resuming at the races six weeks later at Mount Barker, this son of Zoustar should've won in that fresh attempt at Mount Barker in what wasn't a bad race by any means.

After jumping quite well from a low draw, Wiener Waltz somehow found himself shuffled back to last, towards the inside in an impossible position before eventually getting to the complete outside in the home straight and launching late to grab fourth, finishing within a length of the winner.

Via his second and third-up efforts last preparation, he was only narrowly defeated firstly by the useful Cool Serenity before just missing behind the speedy Ziebell, a galloper that's rated well ahead of anything in this field and from barrier one, the onus is on Mollie Clark to settle much closer, especially with the winkers going on.
