Ascot Tips 25/03/2023


Race 2 No. 6 AMERICAN TROOP – ($10)

The Gangemi brothers have found a good race for AMERICAN TROOP to continue his progression. He was beaten for speed while fresh over the 1200 metres at Pinjarra. Jarrad Noske remained hard at work to no avail through the early stages with American Troop continually losing ground. His horse managed to find some rhythm as the pressure came on inside the 600m to start getting himself involved in the race. American Troop kept coming late to finish third some lengths off the winner Beach West. Showed improvement into his second-up run when Noske had American Troop into a good rhythm early over the 1400m here. The big horse kept coming as he turned the tables on Beach West to score. The step-up to a mile from the perfect draw would seem ideal. 



Race 3 No. 2 TADWEER – ($4.40)

It would take a brave punter to deny TADWEER his chance against the top colt Snowdome who resumes a near even-money favourite. Tadweer is racing as a genuine racehorse displaying confidence and a winning attitude. Doesn’t hurt that the clock has been backing him up either. Laid the gauntlet down to his stablemate Mantelli to begin his winning sequence as he put paid to him late under Brandon Louis. Brad Parnham played the stalking role on Tadweer at his next start who showed real determination gunning down the speedy Acromantula. Perhaps his most impressive win of all came last start when he got back off a wide gate. Louis and Tadweer reeled in Man Crush for an impressive victory with the pair now drawn to stalk both Snowdome and Man Crush into the straight.



Race 9 No. 3 ARNIE’S BOY – ($20)

Ashley Maley had the well-travelled ARNIE’S BOY go around over a mile at Ascot when racing third-up. He’s still winless in 16 starts at the city track, yet raced as though he could break the duck there soon. Just ran into a rampant Mountain Ash who set a more than solid tempo from the front. Taj Dyson had Arnie’s Boy travelling in a comfortable rhythm along the rails and in the box-seat. They became held-up prior to straightening with Arnie’s Boy gathering himself well once they found clear running. He was never going to quicken off that sort of pace anyway and that strong gallop would have done him the world of good.
