Ascot Tips April 3


Ascot Value Bet - Race 3 No. 3 Nobel Laurence

After just missing in a slowly run affair first-up to Hot Zed, a galloper who franked the form with a comfortable victory on Bunbury Cup Day, this talented three-year-old was well placed to bounce back on March 10 and he duly saluted.

Nobel Laurence improved enough with the race experience in his first campaign to make light work of his opposition on November 12 and the runner-up Standout Rose franked the form by winning her next outing which followed a debut when rattling off a slick last 600m in a strong Maiden.

A galloper that was doing plenty wrong over his first four outings, the blinkers going on prior to that last victory was a key gear change for this gelding who now will likely face a faster run 1400m here in a harder race, but off that stronger tempo, he should be better suited.


Ascot Best Bet - Race 4 No. 3 Amelia's Contraire

Having prepared 11 winners in March at an excellent strike rate of 36%, we can do much worse than follow in-form trainer Simon Miller with this four-year-old, who should've won first-up on January 16 despite the double figure quote.

A half-sister to a New Zealand Group One winner in Media Sensation, Amelia's Contraire settled midfield via that fresh attempt, a position she was forced to retreat to after so much speed was pushing on outside of her, but was still travelling strongly albeit with nowhere to go.

She did take a little while to find that elusive win, getting the job done on February 27 and has been freshened up since her third at Bunbury, with the drop back to 1200m on Saturday a positive and drawn out a shade for William Pike, he can get a tag into it then unleash late in what is a weak race.


Ascot Roughie - Race 6 No. 10 Yadreamin'

Catching the eye late from the rear in both attempts this preparation, she is a very big price on Saturday considering those efforts and now stepping up past the sprint trips, looks well suited by the 1500m this Saturday.

She is admittedly up in grade a fair way off the second-up attempt, but has contested events that are around this mark with her last win coming at Ascot just over 12 months ago, defeating Lipstick Flickers over the seven furlongs, a mare that has some very strong form lines from prior campaigns.

Yadreamin' lends herself to needing luck given her racing pattern, hence the odds but can produce a turn-of-foot, especially on the 54kg minimum and with any improvement third-up, is worth though for the roughie/exotic players in the opening leg of the Quaddie.


Ascot Feature Tip - Race 8 No. 4 Spin The Knife

Western Australia's premier two-year-old race is the $500,000 Karrakatta Plate which sees a typically competitive field assembled for this Group Two but there's enough to like about the timing by trainer Luke Fernie with this gelding.

A winner at huge odds via his February 13 debut, what was most impressive in that victory was his ability to burn the candle at both ends after working across from a wide gate but showed versatility at start two when ridden cold in the Supremacy Stakes, making good ground for a midfield finish.

The 1100m time in that prior victory stacks up well against many of his rivals while with a gap between runs and avoiding the Perth Stakes on March 20, Spin The Knife brings fresh legs (has won a tick-over trial over a slick recent winner) and has plenty options in the big field from barrier eight.

Amelia's Contraire (Race 4) is back in class and looks well suited with a drop in trip off a freshen-up.

Race 3 is harder for Nobel Laurence but he's got class and the blinkers sharpened his up last start.

Spin The Knife is a leading chance in the Karrakatta Plate (Race 8).
