Greg Hooper’s Ascot Preview Posted on April 5, 2017April 5, 2017 | Posted by Greg Hooper RACE 1 BLACKLINE should make amends for her last defeat. This is a big drop in class and she should lead and win. NIGHT BEATS looks the clear second pick after an impressive debut win where he defeated a subsequent winner. ORANGE STRUDEL and HOT BRESA have place claims. Numbers – 4 – 2 – 6 – 1 Suggested Bet – BLACKLINE WIN RACE 2 This looks the race of the day. FLOYD was a little disappointing first-up however suspect he improves off that run and takes some catching. DELANEY is a nice type who resumes from a spell. The gate is tricky as he may go back. PROCONI was a soft first-up winner at Bunbury. KING OF CHAOS is another who resumes from a spell and has ability. Numbers – 1 -3 – 7 – 6 Suggested Bet – FLOYD WIN RACE 3 Open race with a number of numbers. DETANGO resumes from a spell with the benefit of a soft trial win. She’s drawn a sticky gate however Pike rides and if he can get some cover she find the line strongly. REMEMBER BERLIN should lead and give a big sight. RECOILED and LE PATRON both appear genuine winning hopes. Numbers – 8 – 4 – 3 – 6 Suggested Bet – DETANGO AND REMEMBER BERLIN RACE 4 TONKATUFF found the line nicely first-up. He improves off that run and can settle closer from a good draw. SECRET DOUBT drops in class and appears the leader. FREMOND is always a chance at this level. GRADUAL INCLINE was outclassed in a Bunbury 3YO feature. This looks more suitable. Numbers – 1 – 7 – 4 – 6 Suggested Bet – TONKATUFF SAVE SECRET DOUBT RACE 5 National Apprentices’ Challenge race. TOUCH OF SILVER is the horse coming through the grades. With normal luck he goes very close. MAXIMUS MAK broke a long drought last week. He looks the leader again. AWESOME AS is racing well and will likely box seat in running. SAXSONIC JACK looks just about ready. Suggested – 2 – 4 – 3 – 5 Suggested Bet – TOUCH OF SILVER SAVE MAXIMUS MAK RACE 6 CELTIC WIZARD has been knocking on the door at his last few starts. The rise to a mile looks a positive and this looks a slightly easier race than last week. BEAUCOUNT hasn’t won since his debut however he can sit right on the speed and give a big sight. BIG CABBAGE is racing well. CHECKERS can lead or settle be right on the speed. Numbers – 7 – 2 – 6 – 3 Suggested Bet – CELTIC WIZARD WIN RACE 7 Tricky staying race to finish the program. ROSEWOOD HILL is in career best form and looks a strong chance. REGAL ROUGE comes off a month break since her win at Bunbury however she came off the same break in that event. CULVERIN drops in class. TOMMI TOOCAN was a dominant winner at Bunbury and Pike rides. Numbers- 1 – 2 – 3 – 4 Suggested Bet – ROSEWOOD HILL WIN QUADDIE Race 4 – 1, 7 Race 5 – 2, 3, 4 Race 6 – 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 11 Race 7 – 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 Bet Now!
