12:45 Ascot Racing Tips (14th July)

Racing Tips
ASCOT 12.45 (8.6)
Where do i start with 20 runners and only 5 that i can discard completely, there's usually no advantage in the draw but I've got 5 that have led before and all drawn stall 8 or higher so maybe stalls 1-7 may struggle, the one I'm favouring to go well front the front is Foxy Forever in stall 19 and my joint 2nd top rated the other joint 2nd top is Line Of Reason in stall 18 while my top rated is OPEN WIDE 20/1 who from stall 14 could get a nice tow into the race, any stakes will be kept low and i may dutch all my top 3 and cover all my stakes by laying some of the no-hopers but i will be having a small each way bet on the selection.

Open Wide 20/1 Unp
YORK 1.55 (8.5)
Only 8 runners and I've narrowed it down to 3, I've got joint top rated horses with MUTHMIR 4/1 and ALPHA DELPHINI 5/1 but lurking near the bottom is the 3 year old ABEL HANDY 28/1 who could vie for the lead and this Listed class race is actually a drop in class, I will dutch them to make a profit.

Alpha Delphini 5/1 2nd
Muthmir 4/1 3rd
Able Handy 28/1 6th
Newmarket 2.15
WOW what a cracking race and if i had to put any cash down it would be on Blue Point 10/3 but not at this price, then A.P. O’Brien has got 5 in the race and a bunch of 3 year olds that could improve, so a race to watch and savour.
CHESTER 2.40 (8.2)
At least with only 5 runners the draw wont matter but 4 of them are 3 year olds, I've no idea what will set the pace or whether they will go a fast pace, i will be placing my faith in CROTCHET 6/4 who’s time recorded at Ripon this year puts it a few spots clear.

Crochet 7/4 2nd
HAMILTON 6.30 (7.4)
A 6 runner race where i can discount the bottom pair, Oriental Splendour is the only “known” front runners so could be dangerous but it would need to improve time wise to win this race, Alsvineris 3rd top,Scoundrel in 2nd spot with BURMESE BLAZER 9/2 in top place and has to be the selection.

Burmese Blazer 7/1 4th
HAMILTON 7.00 (7.4)
Small field again of 6 and half look as though they will struggle here, Hee Haw is 3rd best and the only known pace setter in the field, Mujassam is 2nd top and races as though further would suit but the pace might not be fast enough for its stamina to come into play, top rated is CAMEO STAR 3/1 who usually likes to track the leaders and that way it can sit just off the pace and cover any moves made and then stay on the stronger.

Cameo Star 7/2 2nd
