Previous Tips:


October 19

Race 7 - 4:35PM FURPHY-RS CRAWFORD STAKES (1000 METRES)
One of the big races at Ascot is the Listed Crawford Stakes and I am keen on one at the each-way odds and that horse is FIRST AMONG EQUALS. The eight-year-old resumed in the recent Birthday Stakes (1200m) but could only manage 8th of 10 runners after tiring following a tough run out wide for much of the trip. He has a few lengths to make up on Stageman in this but at his second run in the autumn he was a sharp improver when somehow missing out, finishing runner-up at Listed level in the Scenic Blast Stakes (1200m). He will be suited by the fast speed in this race and enjoys the Ascot 1000m, having won two from four at the track and trip. 
Result (unplaced)

Race 8 - 5:10PM CROWN PERTH-NORTHERLY STAKES (1400 METRES)
Despite missing out when resuming, I am sticking with ACHERNAR STAR to produce a much improved run when he steps out in the feature of the day, the Northerly Stakes over the 1400m journey at Ascot. The Simon Miller-trained galloper stepped out on September 28 in the Birthday Stakes and went down to Man Booker, fading in the last 200m to run 5th after sitting outside the leader for much of the trip. He should benefit from that run and at his second run last campaign he claimed the Bunbury Stakes (1400m) at Listed level over the 1400m. He might be better off with a bit of cover this time around and can turn the tables on the likes of Man Booker. 
Result (2nd - $1.70 to Place)

Race 9 - 5:45PM SEPPELT WINES HANDICAP (1200 METRES)
The final event of the day is a Rating 72+ and the exciting DANCE MUSIC steps out for the first time this preparation. Another from the Simon Miller stable, the daughter of War Chant won six of her seven career starts as a three-year-old and was last seen at Ascot on May 4, winning by a big margin ahead of City Circle and Lookout after leading all the way. She has had two trials in preparation for her return, winning the most recent of those and can get her spring campaign off to a flyer. 
Result (unplaced)


October 12


Race 6 - 3:45PM CROWN COURTYARD HANDICAP (1400 METRES)
Race 6 is a Rating 78+ over the 1400m journey and FORCEFUL can get the job done at his second run back from a spell. The Grant & Alana Williams-trained galloper stepped out at Belmont recently over the 1200m and settled in a three-wide position before fanning out very wide on the turn and running on very gamely, despite covering the extra ground throughout. He eventually finished 4th, beaten just under a length by Minus Looks. He has won two from four when second up and at his last campaign he had no luck whatsoever at the same stage of his preparation  before winning two of his next three starts. He steps up to the 1400m and is one from one at the distance, while he should be given a good steer by Willy Pike, who jumps from barrier 6. 
Result (unplaced)

Race 8 - 4:50PM CROWN PERTH-3YO CLASSIC (1000 METRES)
This shapes as an interesting one as the three-year-olds line up in the 3YO Classic. The $100,000 race pits together a number of promising types but I am inclined to go with the least experienced horse in the field and that is the filly, CELEBRITY QUEEN. Another from the Grant & Alana Williams stable, the daughter of Redoute's Choice stepped out on debut recently and reeled down Some Sort, while there was a six length margin back the the 3rd placegetter. She has drawn in a nice spot from barrier 5 and only needs to reproduce her debut performance to be a major player here. 
Result (2nd - $1.20 to Place)


May 18


Race 4 - 2:42PM AUSTRALIAN RACING HALL OF FAME HANDICAP (1200 METRES)
A promising bunch of three-year-olds line up in Race 4 of the day and I am going with the unbeaten NOT TO BE MIST to make it four wins from as many starts. The Adam Durrant-trained galloper enjoys a bit of a fitness edge on some of his rivals and charged to victory at Ascot at a midweek meeting just over a week ago. He looks up to the step up in grade. In his recent wins he has settled just behind the speed before peeling off them around the turn and his jockey, Brodie Kirby, might look to do the same on Saturday. The apprentice hoop claims 2kg and the pair have drawn ideally. 
Scratched

Race 6 - 3:50PM PERTH GLORY HANDICAP (1200 METRES)
This looks to be a nice race for the promising filly LEADING GIRL to kick off her campaign. The Grant & Alana Williams-trained galloper has had four starts for two wins and stepped up to Group 3 level before spelling. In the recent race she wasn't disgraced when placing behind the star performer, Arcadia Queen, and she has tuned up for this with two recent trials. They include a win in the most recent of those. The booking of Willy Pike is a bonus and the top hoop will likely get back in what should be a solidly run race early on. Look for her to be charging home at the business end. 
Result: (2nd)
