Ascot Tips - November 18

Previous Ascot Tips:

November 11

Race 6 - WAROA-LEE STEERE STAKES (1400m) 4:15pm

SCALES OF JUSTICE is three from three when third-up from a spell and he returns home after some top efforts in Group 1 and 2 events in Melbourne. He’s trialled in the interim and will be hard to beat.


GATTING is still on the up but has been great in both runs back from a spell. He was held up for the first half of the straight last time and couldn’t go with the first three that had momentum. He gets back to Ascot where he has four wins and three placings from nine starts, and William Pike has picked up the ride which can’t hurt.


I tipped GIGANTE last time at big odds and he got nailed just before the line but still paid well for the place. He’s at his absolute peak now and backs up two weeks later instead of three weeks which could just give him that extra bit of strength late. Stick with him each-way at $18 & $4.80.

November 4

Race 5 - TABTOUCH HANDICAP (1400m) 3:20pm

LA MOULINE is by Showcasing and out of the Don Eduardo mare Khales, so she should only improve as the distances get longer. She’s unbeaten in two starts at Ascot and her last two wins have been very impressive. She’s drawn to get a soft run from gate 3 and should be wining with Pike aboard. 

Race 6 - ASIAN BEAU STAKES (1400m) 4:00pm

VARIATION has four wins and a placing from five runs at the track and has to be respected getting back to Ascot. He hit the front a bit early when first-up over 1400m and was grabbed near the line when peaking on his run. He won the Raconteur Stakes (1500m) when second-up last campaign and looks set to maintain his good second-up record. 

Race 7 - PRINCE OF WALES STAKES (1000m) 4:35pm

DAINTY TESS has such a brilliant turn of foot and she reeled off the quickest final 600m of the day last time but just couldn’t catch State Solicitor. Caipirinha should run them along at a decent clip and that will give Dainty Tess every chance to flash home over the top of them.

October 28

Race 2 - GLENROY CHAFF HANDICAP (1000m) 1:40pm

FLOYD is probably the best bet of the day anywhere in the country because he’s paying more than Winx but looks just as certain to be winning. The other top chances in the race look better suited over 1200m and will only be getting warmed up late while Floyd will jump and run and prove too speedy for them. 

Race 5 - MUMM CHAMPAGNE HANDICAP (1200m) 3:45pm

GIGANTE was a victim of circumstances in the Birthday Stakes (1200m) and can bounce back here at massive odds. Having drawn barrier 1 in his past two starts has actually worked against him as he’s been crossed by others who have then slackened the speed which hasn’t allowed him to travel generously. He drops right back in class on Saturday, gets near peak fitness and should be able to run his own race from barrier 9. Each-way at $21 and $4.33.

Race 6 - IRON JACK - BELGRAVIA STAKES (1200m) 4:20pm

The way OCEAN JEWEL has worked home from the rear to win both starts over 1000m this campaign suggests the step up to 1200m on Saturday will suit perfectly. She tried to lead all the way over 1400m at her second start, so there is absolutely no problem with her running a strong 1200m race third-up from a spell this time. 

October 21

Race 2 - CROWN TOWERS HANDICAP (1600m) 1:54pm

PINZU was a victim of circumstances last start and I think he can bounce back. He was slow to begin and settled a clear last, but as jockey Kate Witten and Pinzu approached the bend, he was inside of the second last horse and had to maintain momentum in the ruck and ride for luck – which unfortunately didn’t pan out. The pair didn’t really get clear until the 100m mark, and as soon as Witten gave him one crack with the whip, he accelerated and got home for 3rd. Fred Kersley jumps aboard with a 3kg claim, and from barrier 5, he can settle toward the rear again, but on the outside this time where he built on the corner and storm down the outside. He has a great record at Ascot and looks hard to beat.

Race 4 - MYER SPRINT (1100m) 3:08pm

DAINTY TESS was ultra-impressive last start, and I like the fact trainer Daniel Morton has kept her fresh for this. She has such an electrifying turn of foot, and Kate Witten has a good association with her having been aboard for her past three starts for two wins and a 2nd.

Race 7 - CROWN PERTH-NORTHERLY STAKES (1400m) 4:55pm

COSMIC STORM took out the Jungle Mist Classic (1200m) when first-up last campaign and she only got warmed up late to score on the line, and it looked as if she would have been better suited over a slightly longer trip. She resumes this campaign over 1400m and has been prepped in the same fashion with two 950m barrier trials. William Pike would have had the choice to ride a few of the top chances in this and sticks with the lightly-raced mare.

What Bets To Place at Ascot Races

There are a number of ways to bet on horse racing this weekend from a standard win or place bet to quadrellas and multibets. 

SINGLE: The most common bet. The single bet involves betting on your selection to win, place, or both (each-way). If betting each-way (see our guide for what an each-way bet is), the stake is doubled as you are betting on your selection to win, and also to place.

QUINELLA: A Quinella bet is available on every thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race provided there are at least three or more runners. To win a Quinella, you must successfully predict the 1st and 2nd placegetters in any order

EXACTA: An exacta is exactly the same as a quinella. However, you must successfully predict the 1st and 2nd placegetters in the correct order

TRIFECTA: A Trifecta bet is available on every thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race provided there are at least four or more runners. To win a Trifecta, you must successfully predict the 1st, 2nd and 3rd placegetters in a given race. 

FIRST4: A First4 bet is available on most thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race provided there are at least four or more runners. To win a First4, you must successfully predict the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th placegetters in a given race. 

MYSTERY BET: A Mystery Bet takes the guess work out of picking a Trifecta and is generated by the betting agency’s computer. The computer system will randomly select three runners and if they fill the placings you win the Trifecta. 

QUADDIE: A Quaddie bet, or Quadrella bet as it is fully known, is available on most thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race meetings. A quaddie is betting on the winners of four nominated races, which are typically the last four races of any meeting, and is a very popular bet. 

MULTIBET: Multibets offer a great way to secure big winning returns on your bets as you combine various bets into one, and are proving to be an extremely popular way to bet. A multibet combines any number of bets from two to 25 into one single bet and dramatically increases the odds. 

PATENT BET: A Patent bet is similar to a three-leg multibet but is made up of seven separate bets: three singles, three doubles and a trio. Where a multibet requires all selections to win for a return, a patent bet will yield a return from just one winner.

ALL-IN BETTING: All-In betting involves a bookmaker offering fixed odds on selected feature races prior to the declaration of the final field. All-In betting on the Melbourne Cup, for example, is available for the better part of 12 months leading into the event. The risk with All-In Betting is that you will not receive your stake back if your horse is scratched.

Ascot Race Track Description

Regarded as the 'grand old lady' of Australian racecourses, Perth’s Ascot Racecourse is a well-drained turf track with a 300 metre inclining straight regarded by experts as the most severe test of stayers in Australia. 

Ascot is one of the smaller racecourses in Australia and inside barriers can be an advantage.
