Ascot Tips April 20

Amelia Park Lamb Handicap Tips (Race 3)

Ascot Value Bet - Race 3 No. 6 Hesket

The gelding is a three-time winner this season while he has delivered a number of other placed efforts including over this track and trip.

The five-year-old was freshened following a down-the-field effort when ninth in a course and distance handicap at the end of January.

The son of Fastnet Rock appeared to benefit from that short break with him returning with a two-and-a-half-length third in a Class 5 handicap over 1300m at Pinjarra last month. 

The selection took a step forward when successful having jumped at odds of $7.50 for a similar race to this over course and distance nine days later.

The subsequent victory of the third home Oly’s Choice at this venue last week gives that form a solid look and the pick has a good barrier two from the rail.

Trainer Dylan Bairstow has won with three of his last five runners, including the selection and his representative looks value to salute in this event.

Furphy Handicap Tips (Race 6)

Ascot Best Bet - Race 6 No. 6 Twain’s Angel

The three-year-old gained plenty of experience in barrier trials prior to making her debut at Belmont Park at the end of August.

Racing on a good 4 track that day the filly raced close to the speed before coming home three lengths clear of her rivals in a 1200m maiden contest.

The daughter of Toronado duly maintained her unbeaten record when coming home over a length clear of her rivals in the 1300m Amelia Park Plate at the same track the following month.

The selection hasn’t been seen in race action since that success which came on a soft 5 surface however she has advertised her well-being in barrier trials in recent weeks.

Trained by Sean & Jake Casey the filly has won two such contests at Belmont Park including a ten-runner affair over 1000m at the start of this month.

Apprentice Madi Derrick, on board for both previous rides is again in the saddle and with a good alley the pair are taken to complete a hat-trick together. 

Amelia Park – Karrakatta Plate (Group 2) Tips (Race 7)

Ascot Next Best Bet - Race 7 No. 7 Golden Kathleen

The daughter of Leonardo Da Hinchi has belied her low sales prices in showing plenty of ability in her two starts to date.

The youngster claimed a 1000m barrier trial at Belmont Park before making the perfect start to her career when saluting over 1100m at Bunbury in February.

The pick came home over two-and-a-half-lengths clear of her rivals on that occasion and she was stepped up to Group 3 company subsequently.

The filly caught the eye in finishing strongly from off the pace when runner-up in the Furphy – Gimcrack Stakes over 1100m here two weeks ago.

Russell Stewart’s filly shaped as if the step up in distance she gets here would suit when beaten one-and-a-half-lengths that day. 

Both of those efforts came on good 4 surfaces and similar underfoot conditions are expected here. 

The selection has a wide barrier to contend with here but she looks capable of overcoming that to return to winning ways.  

The Kia Quokka Tips (Race 8)

Ascot Feature Bet - Race 8 No. 10 Oscar’s Fortune

Don Luciani’s gelding made the perfect start to his career when debuting with a two-length success over 1000m at Belmont Park at the end of August.

The three-year-old won his next three starts including twice over 1000m here before losing out by a narrow margin in the Listed Placid Ark Stakes over this track and trip.

The three-year-old proved that he can be competitive at the highest level when a good second in the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes over this course and distance in December.

The son of Rich Enuff was spelled following that second returning with a good second over 1099m in a set weights contest at Albany.

The pick went one better when taking out the Group 3 PKF AS Roma – AC Milan Cup over 1100m here earlier this month and the extra 100m here is no issue.

William Pike’s mount has an inside alley here and he looks up to registering the biggest win of his career to date.
