Ascot Tips May 12


Ascot Best Bet - Race 2 No. 1 Albukthuri

As a galloper who placed behind some serious opposition that included Lunar Fox (Group One winner) and Glenfiddich (Group Two winner/Group One placed) in Victoria, you'd like to think he'd be taking care of a Class 1 midweek field from Ascot.

Racing previously under the Shadwell banner and now under the care of Chris & Michael Gangemi, a stable who do target many talented runners in the east, Albukthuri resumes as a gelding for the new yard and has a few gear changes.

He has trialled up very well, working to the line strongly for a third in good time via a 1000m Belmont heat on April 27 and while he'll improve with the run, on class, should be winning a race of this nature, with the 1200m a good starting point.


Ascot Value Bet - Race 7 No. 4 Said No One Ever

This gelding has had excuses in both runs this campaign, but now getting up to a mile and drawing kinder than the second-up tilt at Northam, he should be going close with more improvement predicted on Wednesday.

By Deep Field and out the dam Hidden Wonder, a Listed winning miler, Said No One Ever was lucky to stay on his feet first-up at Geraldton as favourite, a race in which he was effectively out of winning calculations after 100m before his latest attempt on May 2.

With a wide gate forcing Brad Rawiller to push forward on that occasion, he did do plenty of early work when eventually camping outside the leader and a result of that tough run, just peaked on his effort over the last 100m despite bravely boxing on for third.


Ascot Next Best Bet - Race 8 No. 10 Brave Dream

The famous cerise and white of Bob Peters combine with William Pike in the last from Ascot this Wednesday, so no flash odds are to be expected, however, this does look good first-up placement for a mare that recorded back-to-back spring wins before a spell.

A daughter of Declaration Of War that is out of a WA Derby and WA Oaks winning mare in Dreamaway, Brave Dream is bred to get over a lot further than the 1200m she faces here although did win at this track/trip when showing a good turn-of-foot to win her Maiden.

She was resuming off a 12 month break last spring, so understandably took a few runs to get back into the swing of it, but off her two lead-in trials this preparation, including a May 3 hit-out that this four-year-old easily could've won, she looks sharp enough to produce fresh.
