Ascot Tips - April 27

Race 5 of the day is a 1MW and INFLATION should be hard to beat. The Darren Mcauliffe-trained galloper lined up here two starts ago and overraced on the moderate speed before only managing 5th but improved when second up, taking out a Class 1 at Pinjarra when strong to the line. The step up to the 1400m should suit and he might get a cheap time of it out in front as he looks to be the only genuine leader engaged in this race. Stick with him. 

The final event of the day is a BenchMark 64 and NEW AGE can close the day out on top with Willy Pike on board. The lightly raced five-year-old has won seven of 14 and was a last start winner ahed of Superior Smile last time in a similar affair. She tends to race well over the 1600m at the Ascot track and at her previous run at the track & distance she narrowly went down after being stuck in traffic. A slight concern in the 60kg but she won with a bit in hand last time, while the booking of Pike should help. 

Previous Ascot Tips:

April 20

The stayers line up over the 3200m trip in Race 4 and the proven contender over the distance is DARK MUSKET. The veteran has had three runs this time in after finishing 9th in the Perth Cup (2400m) earlier in the year and has been building up nicely. His last start performance saw him run 4th in the Pinjarra Cup (2300m) and in that lead up he kept grinding away after settling last in the early stages before peeling out wide. He was just under two lengths from He's A Parker and he meets the placegetters much better at the weights this time around. He should get a nice steer from barrier 4 and will go very close at the each-way odds. 
Result (3rd)

Race 7 at Ascot is a BenchMark 64 and LITTLE FISH should be hard to beat. The Kalgoorlie galloper has won six of nine career starts and has been racing well this campaign. He took out a 1MW two starts ago over the 1200m after covering a lot of ground during the run and had to do it the hard way again on March 30 when posted out wide before running 3rd to Special Reward. While the four-year-old has drawn in a tricky spot, with any luck he might be able to land in the running line and with the 3kg claim for the apprentice hoop, Jade McNaught, he should be able to find plenty at the business end of the race. 
Result (2nd)

April 13

Race 8 - 4:25PM SCHWEPPES-W.A.T.C. DERBY (2400 METRES)
The feature of the day at Ascot is the Group 2 W.A.T.C. Derby and after dominating his rivals in the recent Melvista Stakes (2200m), REGAL POWER will be hard to stop. The Grant & Alana Williams stable have a habit of taking out the Perth majors and their gelding finished in the money in four runs over shorter trips before relishing the step up to the 2200m two weeks ago to clear out to win by over two lengths from Cockney Crew and Platoon in the Melvista. He meets those rivals at level weights and while he has drawn wide, the pace in the race will play into his hands. The dominant hoop, Willy Pike, retains the ride and he looks to be the one in the Grand Final for the young stayers. 
Result (1st - $1.40)

We close out the day at Ascot with a 64 rater and a sneaky contender at the double figure odds is DOUBLE BUBBLE, who should be suited back to the 1100m. The three-year-old has had six starts for three wins and was a strong winner over the distance here two starts ago before being swamped late over the 1200m on March 23, finishing a narrow 6th behind Comparative. She has drawn a fraction better than some of the favoured runners in this race and will push towards the lead in the early stages. She should be reaching peak fitness at her third run back from a spell and with the experienced jockey, Patrick Carbery, on board she can go very close. 
Result (4th)

April 6

The milers tackle the Old Comrade Stakes and it is PROPERANTES that can prove to be the surprise packet at the double figure odds. The seven-year-old has had two runs this time in for a 5th in the Pinjarra Classic before running 8th in the Grandstand Cup (1500m). He wasn't suited by them muddling pace in that race and there should be enough speed in this one through the likes of Abdicator and Rockon Tommy. He has an excellent record of two wins and a minor placing from three starts at the track and trip and at his third run back he should be nearing his peak. 
Result (2nd)

The feature of the day at Ascot is the Group 2 Karrakatta Plate (1200m) for the two-year-olds and RIO DEL MAR should be hard to beat. The Simon Miller-trained galloper looks to be the pick of the fillies, which represent just over half the field, and comes off an excellent win in the recent Gimcrack Stakes (1200m). On that occasion, the daughter of Magnus managed to barge through some traffic at the 200m mark and found the line perfectly to nail Prim And Proper. She gives the impression that the extra 100m should suit and provided that there are no hiccups from barrier 1, she can take out Perth's biggest race for the juveniles. 
Result (unplaced)

March 30

After missing out when resuming on March 16, ELECTRIC LIGHT should be tough to beat when she steps out in Race 6 of the day at Ascot, which is a BenchMark 76. The four-year-old won five on the trot at the end of her last preparation and stepped out over the 1100m last time. She settled in a midfield spot and ran on well before just peaking on her run in the last 100m, finishing 4th to Dam Ready. The Adam Durrant-trained galloper should improve off that run and is unbeaten from five starts over the 1200m. With Willy Pike on board, she looks to be a bit of an anchor for the day. 
Result (scratched)

The feature at Ascot is the W.A. Oaks (2400m) and it is the Maiden galloper, PING ME ANOTHER, that can spring a surprise by taking out the Group 3 affair for the three-year-old fillies. The Chris Willis-trained galloper comes out of the Natasha Stakes (2200m), which looks to be the form reference for this and on that occasion she was the best of the finishers, just failing to reel in Jedaffair. With question marks on the likes of Adornment, who doesn't seem to be coping with the rise in distance of late, Ping Me Another is one that has been progressing well as she steps up in trip and will be ridden quietly from the wide gate. With pace to come from a number of those inside her, the race might be set up for her to run over the top of them late in the piece. 
Result (2nd - $3.70 Place)
