Ascot Tips October 9


Ascot Value Bet - Race 4 No. 7 Avalon Bay

After winning first-up at 1400m and staying in the same grade/trip on September 25, this gelding wasn't as suited, as he was forced to loop the field rather than get the softer run in transit.

While he isn't expected to settle at the front, jockey Paul Harvey has more options aboard Avalon Bay from gate six this time, so the onus is on him to have this gelding at least a pair or two closer.

His last 600m a fortnight ago was only bettered by the winner and given he generally puts in that flat one second-up, it would suggest that this six-year-old is going very well, while the mile suits now.


Ascot Best Bet - Race 5 No. 4 Kaptain Kaos

To put it simply, this four-year-old is a winner, a gelding who has won six of his last seven starts, which includes his maiden victory only in March, so he's quickly working through the grades.

Kaptain Kaos is aiming to remain unbeaten from his fourth outing this prep, and considering the market was keen to take him on first and second-up, he was just winning those 1200m events on ability.

A big lead is Chris Parnham sticking and not staying on Kissonallforcheeks, his main threat, while drawing better than that mare, Parnham can settle closer as his key rival will either have to go back or she'll be working.


Ascot Roughie - Race 7 No. 10 Solid Azza

She put in a monster effort first-up when running some very slick closing splits and although was visually disappointing following that, that big fresh run may have just flattened her staying at 1000m, 

Solid Azza has no second-up form and has never finished in the top three on soft going, so it's worth forgiving that recent run and in her last attempt over the Ascot 1200m, she beat a listed winner in Miss Frost.

The bonus of waiting until Race 7 is that you can monitor how the track is playing, as if they can't make ground, I wouldn't bother, but if they can blend in out wide, she's a chance at big odds.


Ascot Next Best Bet - Race 9 No. 13 Arcadia Grace

It almost seems farcical considering her coming from a Northam win, however, you simply don’t see many overcome trouble, take a tight run and absolutely bolt in like that on debut.

A superbly bred filly from a famous family (out of a Group 2 winning mare, who is half-sister to Arcadia Queen), Arcadia Grace is one of the more interesting runners on this Ascot card.

Putting away her rivals in the blink of an eye via that August 26 victory, it's only the good ones that can do that and while this is a handy race, Bob Peters doesn't throw them in the deep end for a laugh.


Ascot Value Bet - Race 10 No. 2 Captain Kink

The Brett Pope stable can be a hard one to catch for punters, albeit one of his few honest and consistent performers is this returning five-year-old, who has five wins and three placings to his name from 17 starts.

Captain Kink has won twice and placed three times at Ascot, while the furthest he's been beaten in eight attempts on this circuit is a 2.5 length defeat in 78+ grade, much stronger company than he finds here.

Behind an up-and-coming star in Western Empire, his two lead-up trials were sound (not knocked about) and with a smart 2kg claimer engaged, the son of Sessions is a great each-way chance in the last.

Generally corporate bookies provide betting markets a day prior to a Wednesday meeting at Ascot and around two days before a Saturday or feature program.



Kaptain Kaos (Race 5) and Arcadia Grace (Race 9) will run as the best bets at Ascot on Saturday.

Captain Kink (Race 10) is the best each-way play of the card, while Avalon Bay (Race 4) and Solid Azza (Race 7) both have some claims.

Value Bet: Avalon Bay Each Way $14.00 at Palmerbet - 2 Units
