Race Details

Race Type: Fillies’ Handicap Class 3
Age: 3 year olds plus
Declared Runners: 12
Distance: 1m

Race Favourite

The race favourite is MELNIKOVA at 7/2 odds* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 20:59 GMT on Tuesday, 7th April 2020).

The Frankel Filly scored on her debut which was at Kempton in August.

She didn’t quite hit the same mark on her next race when she took 3rd at Newbury in September. B

ut the potential remains there as she comes into her handicap debut on her return after the winter break.

Ascot Racing Odds Tips

MANAABIT has scored twice in her last three trips.

She is in good hands and she made a winning start to handicap life at Beverley 18 days ago over a seven and a half furlong trip.

So she is likely to be there or thereabouts and can’t be overlooked from 5/1* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 20:59 GMT on Tuesday, 7th April 2020).

On her last run DECLARED INTEREST took a fifth place finish over course and distance.

That was after scoring on what was her reappearance and handicap debut which was at Chelmsford on a 1m trip.

Declared Interest stays on a very nice respectable mark which should put her in contention.

Race Details

Race Type: Class 2 Handicap
Age: 3 year olds only
Declared Runners: 5 (1 non-runner)
Distance: 1m 3f 211y

Race Favourite

Only a small field to size up in Ascot racing odds for this one. Heading up the field is CELESTRAN at 6/5 odds* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 20:59 GMT on Tuesday, 7th April 2020).

She scored at Yarmouth on her return to action and then she went among listed company at Goodwood to follow that and battled very well to take a third place finish in that contest.

She didn’t really seem to shape well in that one, however.

So Celestran will go with blinkers for the first time because of not settling on that previous trip, and should be a major player in this fixture.

Ascot Racing Odds Tips

DUBAI SOUQ gets the cheek pieces on for the first time as she comes back for a return to action.

She signed off for the winter break with a good score at Nottingham. That was back in October but she should warrant respect and goes at top weight after an 11lb raise.

SUMMIT REACH delivered a win on her reappearance, the third run of her career.

That was in a novice effort at Chelmsford back in January. She failed to get things together particularly well on a follow up at Kempton.

Rounding out the Ascot racing odds preview for this Fillies’ Handicap, is CARLOS FELIX.

She is looking to break her maiden on what will be the fifth attempt. She has only made it to the places one from her previous efforts.

Carlos Felix comes up on a trip so it will be interesting to see what Carlos Felix, who was a very expensive juvenile purchase, can do.

Race Details

Race Type: Summer Mile Stakes Group 2 Class 1
Age: 4 year olds plus
Declared Runners: 11
Distance: 7f 213y

Race Favourite

MOHAATHER is the 7/4 favourite for the Summer Mile Stakes* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 20:59 GMT on Tuesday, 7th April 2020).

He has had one run under belt since reappearance which was in the Queen Anne at Royal Ascot. He didn’t have the greatest of luck in that run.

Mohaather still comes with some big claims here for this Group 2 contest, dropping down in class.

He would have likely been in the places at Ascot had he had a clean run. That’s worth bearing in mind for Ascot racing odds here.

Ascot Racing Odds Tips

Another key competitor for the Summer Mile Stakes should be SKARDU from 7/1* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 20:59 GMT on Tuesday, 7th April 2020).

He was also up in the Queen Anne on a reappearance. Skardu took eighth place there, one behind Mohaather.

He was shaping up really well last year with notable efforts coming with a win at Newmarket in the Craven and a third place finish in the 2000 Guineas. Skardu is likely to be in the frame.

MARIE’S DIAMOND has been going well recently. Last month he delivered a win among listed company by more than four lengths. He lined up in the Queen Anne as well and claimed third place.

Based on that, getting the better of some of those he re-opposes here in that 1m trip, he’s worth keeping on side at 9/1* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 20:59 GMT on Tuesday, 7th April 2020).

Race Type: Class 2 Handicap
Age: 3 year olds plus
Declared Runners: 20
Distance: 5f

Race Favourite

The 5/1 favourite in Ascot racing odds for this is ARICEBO* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 20:59 GMT on Tuesday, 7th April 2020).

His last trip saw him take a 5th place finish from a field of 11 at Doncaster on a 5f trip less than a week ago.

Aricebo was the beaten favourite in that one. In a field of this size punters probably are not going to be afraid to take him on.

Ascot Racing Odds Tips

APLOMB catches the eye for this contest after travelling well in the Silver Wokingham. He took seventh of 19 in that run.

He is down 1lb after that and should be well in the frame for a win here.

Aplomb has won three times at 6f on good to soft and soft ground.

He’s coming back down in trip and he looks to be one to keep on the shortlist at 12/1* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 20:59 GMT on Tuesday, 7th April 2020).

The other that we will cast an eye on is STONE OF DESTINY. He was sixth in the Wokingham on his last trip.

Very interestingly last year he delivered a course and distance win. This looks to be his best distance and therefore coming in sharp here may have a saw in proceedings.

16:25 Ascot Racing Odds & Tips

Alphabetical 15/8
Stag Horn 2/1
Sly Minx 7/2

Race Type: Class 4 Handicap
Age: 3 year olds only
Declared Runners: 6
Distance: 2 miles

Race Favourite

There is a test of endurance coming up for this small field. It is ALPHABETICAL who is the 15/8 favourite* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 20:59 GMT on Tuesday, 7th April 2020).

Hard to argue with that as he is looking for a four-timer.

The completion of the hattrick for Alphabetical came just under two weeks ago at Yarmouth.

This will be a tougher race than that and he comes up 6lb as well. But he does appear to be able to handle that and deserves massive respect.

Ascot Racing Odds Tips

STAG HORN will be a key challenger to the favourite in Ascot racing odds for this particular fixture. He delivered a win on his handicap which was at Goodwood on his reappearance.

Stag Horn came along nicely as a juvenile and that recent handicap score saw him really enjoy himself on a longer trip.

He should be in this from 2/1* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 20:59 GMT on Tuesday, 7th April 2020).

We have to size up GRAIN OF SENSE for this one simply because of the lack of conviction of the challenges from the rest of the pack.

He is coming up in trip so is totally untested in terms of stamina. Grain Of Sense was fifth at Doncaster on his last run, his first effort after being gelded. So does he have more?
