Ascot - Saturday December 8

5 months ago Tips
  • Rail Position: Out 6m
  • Track Conditions: Good 4
  • Track Comments: The track has been playing really well with a hint of leader bias, expect that to be the same with no disadvantage being up on the speed.


I think anything around $2 for this 5yo mare is value. She put away a similar field last time out by a space and I can see this happening again. Draws barrier 1 and Pike rides. Looks the lock of the card.


He's certainly a stable runner for me and continues to perform at an extremely consistent level. Just got held up on the inside last time out, today he draws out so he'll be thundering down the outside for us at around $12. No weight and Lucy Warwick will know what to do now after having ridden him last start.

Trainer Darren Mcauliffe has enjoyed an amazing run at Ascot so far this season. He's had 19 runners for 7 winners at the impressive strike rate of 37%. He's got the two runners on the card in The Velvet King who will run favourite in the Lee Steere Classic and Gatting the G1 Kingston Town.


Has been easily the best backed runner on the card, opened $2.20, in to as short as $1.90 now.

Leg 1: 1,2,9

Leg 2: 5

Leg 3: 1,2,4,12,15

Leg 4: 1,3,4,7

$60 gets you 100%


Race 1: 4,1,2,3 (Couldn't have been more impressive winning by a space on debut, bit speculative, but we are getting a decent price)

Race 2: 3,5,9,6 (Very tough race, I won't be having a bet in this one)

Race 3: 6,4,3,1 (BOLTER)

Race 4: 8,4,7,2 (Gets a nice weight swing from Royal Statue who beat him last start. Draws well and can turn the tables)

Race 5: 7,3,1,8 (Plenty of chances here as well, Shapita is ready to win now and draws well)

Race 6: 2,1,9,4 (Can't see why Misty Metal won't win again. Beat the race favourite Celebrity Dream by just under 3L last time out)

Race 7: 5,2,6,1 (BEST BET)

Race 8: 1,15,12,4 (I think he presents excellent value Trap For Fools, he'll lead and be mighty hard to chase down. Arcadia Queen is obviously the biggest danger, 50kg and Pike)

Race 9: 1,3,7,6 (No reason to jump off Dark Prospect, beat a similar field last time out.)
