Ascot Tips April 21


Ascot Best Bet - Race 1 No. 4 Sheza Chalmer

With tactical versatility along with a turn-of-foot to overcome most scenarios, this filly can return a winner via the opener at Ascot on Wednesday following an eye-catching third in a Belmont trial, albeit it was in March.

Prepared by the Bernie Miller yard, Sheza Chalmer was excellent in her first campaign, defeating Testing Love (won her next two) at start two before an even more dominant display on a November 25 card where she was the only runner to come from off the speed at Bunbury and prevail (smashed the clock for the day too).

Although she had to settle for second as a short favourite on December 12, it looked an end of preparation performance and from barrier one this Wednesday, jockey Patrick Carbery can make use of the cutaway in the home straight if need be.


Ascot Next Best Bet - Race 5 No. 5 Reciting

Despite not being able to breakthrough in two preparations last year, this filly did show ability against some handy types and now as a more mature, later three-year-old, has really come into her own over these longer journeys.

Over 1300m and then 1500m, she was building strongly into her third-up assignment at Pinjarra on March 18 and following a good push in the betting ($3.60-$2.80), bolted in by a big margin over the the mile, with connections then electing to start her in the WA Oaks.

Stepping straight to 2400m on a nine-day turnaround, it was a decent ask for Reciting who although was well held, did have some excuses (lost a plate/laceration to a fetlock) but freshened-up and back to a modest Class 3, can bounce back in a race of this nature.


Ascot Value Bet - Race 9 No. 6 Heart Of Coeur

He was a genuine city class galloper at his best but went off the boil following his first two outings last year, a trend which continued over a short early summer campaign, however, off a little spell and with the blinkers going on, we saw much-improved efforts this year.

At 34.18, the six-year-old recorded comfortably the fastest last 600m of that February 11 contest where he was only a few strides off reeling in Sweet Dreamin', again placing behind that runner on March 11 before two attempts at Pinjarra where he's made ground on both occasions.

The racing pattern of Heart Of Coeur is the knock, however, with barrier one and a cutaway in play via the home straight, it does give him a sniff late, especially over an extra furlong with this 1500m trip worth an attempt off his recent performances.
