Ascot Tips - December 15

Tips to be updated on Thursday, December 13.

Previous Ascot Tips:

December 8

THE VELVET KING is unbeaten in two starts over 1400m and just found the WA Guineas (1600m) a bit tough when finishing 5.7 lengths from Arcadia Queen after sitting on a hot speed early. Darren Weir’s Junipal worked home strongly in that race and was only half a length back from The Velvet King, but The Velvet King will be much stronger late over the shorter trip and he maps to control this race at a leisurely tempo with all bar one other being backmarkers. 
Result (Won - $2.40)

William Pike fans will be all over MISSISSIPPI DELTA who aims for her eighth win from 13 starts. The daughter of High Chaparral peaked sixth-up last campaign over 2150m where she charged home from the rear to record a 1.25-length victory over At The Ready who was in scintillating form having won his previous start and then finishing runner-up and winning his next two which included a win over Dudemanbro who was 2nd behind Railway Stakes winner Galaxy Star. She let down powerfully from 6th place to score by two lengths last start, and she can go on with the job here.

I’m expecting Arcadia Prince and Mrs Brown’s Boy to attract most of the betting attention here but don’t let SPILLINOVA get under your guard. He led throughout to score last start over 1400m in 1:24.67, and although he won by 2.5 lengths, he tired late to run the slowest final 600m of the race (36:04). In comparison, Arcadia Prince defeated Mrs Brown’s Boy at the track and trip in 1:25.44 but clocked a much slicker final 200m of 34:52. Spillinova drops 2.5kg on that run and Arcadia Prince goes up 1.5kg, and with plenty of upside for Spillinova, I’d expect him to prove hard to catch. 
Result (2nd)

Willing to have a crack at KAKADU after he improved out of sight from his first barrier trial to the next and has had two weeks to come on. He was impressive winning two in a row at Belmont last preparation and was far from disgraced finishing runner-up to Flirtini when giving that filly 4kg. Down in the weights and drawn well, he’ll go close.
Result (unplaced)

Race 1 - 12:24PM TOURISM WA TROPHY (1600 METRES)
LIKE A BUTTERFLY’s biggest win to date was when stepping up to 1600m at her third run last campaign and scoring by 3.75 lengths. She finished 3.5 lengths from Jeraft when first-up over 1400m this preparation and then just missed behind that galloper last start over 1500m. She meets him 1.5kg better at the weights and has more upside so I’m expecting her to turn the tables here. Miracle Man ran slower than that pair and goes up 3.5kg on Saturday so I’m guessing it’s the ‘Pike factor’ that has him favourite. 
Result (unplaced)

Race 3 - 1:44PM CARBINE CLUB OF W.A. STAKES (1400 METRES)I was expecting a spike performance from IN LOVE WITH PARIS last start as she usually improves significantly second-up, but after battling with The Nicconian she lacked dash and seemed to peak on her run The Nicconian scored by two lengths. With two 1200m runs under her belt and a softer early tempo, she should be finishing hard to score.
Result (2nd)

DANCE MUSIC won her first two in a row before running eight lengths below her previous performance over 1200m. There must have been an issue as trainer Simon Miller gave her a six-week break before she returned over 1100m and scored a convincing win over Pablo’s Gem. She’s drawn to get a soft run behind the speed and looks like the filly to beat. 
Result (1st - $2.70)

November 17 (Jackson Oldham)

Race 6 - 4:37pm AMELIA PARK LODGE HANDICAP (1400m) 
I’m keen to take on the favourite and play the four-year-old gelding SPILLANOVA. He was unsuited first-up over 1200m and still hit the line terrifically to finish only 1.25 lengths off Pearls and Prawns. His second-up record is good and he goes up to 1400m which looks his pet distance. He maps well from gate six. Jockey Jason Brown can either let him lead or sit just off the speed and he should prove very hard to beat. 
Result (1st - $3.50)

Race 7 - 5:12pm R.J. PETERS STAKES (1500m) - Action 
The best bet of the card looks to be four-year-old Pierro gelding, ACTION. He is only behind Galaxy Star, Iconoclasm, Fifty Stars and Peaceful State in betting for the Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) next Saturday and needs to win this race to get into the field. He was dominant in the Group 2 W.A.T.C Derby (2400m) last preparation and has come back in terrific order, finishing second behind Galaxy Star last start in the Group 3 Asian Beau Stakes (1400m) behind Galaxy Star with a gap back to third. He looks too good for these and $2.25 is a good price.
Result (unplaced)
