Ascot Tips May 5


Ascot Best Bet - Race 6 No. 1 Blackwater Bay

A talented son of the mighty Blackfriars, Blackwater Bay is a full brother to Group One winner Come Play With Me and like his older sibling, he looks as though he'll relish the middle distance and staying journeys so the resumption over 1800m wasn't a shock.

With a big gap between a nice trial on March 8 and that return on April 24, the money still came for this four-year-old who led and travelled strongly, but his fitness just gave out over the last 50m when reeled in by Friar's Fantasia and Lyle's Choice, who have won eight races between them.

Staying at 1800m for now is a positive and coming all the way back to a Class 1 Handicap which sees him only goes up one kilo courtesy of the Laqdar Ramoly claim, there only needs to be the slightest of improvement on Wednesday to be winning this.


Ascot Value Bet - Race 7 No. 8 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 this gelding is the knock, however, he does continue to race well and finding an assignment where he still carries 56kg but gets a gun senior on in Chris Parnham instead of an apprentice, Heart Of Coeur is well placed in the last from Ascot.
