12:20 Ascot Maiden Hurdle Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 3 maiden hurdle
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 7
Distance: 2m 3f

Race Preview

We start the day of racing from Ascot with a look at this maiden hurdle from Ascot in which DOCTOR KEN looks like being a big player.

He picked up a win in a bumper at Market Rasen on his third race track appearance, getting off the mark impressively there.

Following that he went to a break before returning to take a third-place finish in a strong maiden contest at Aintree.

On that hurdle debut, Doctor Ken finished behind one that has since gone to get in the frame at Grade 2.

PULL AGAIN GREEN looks of interest as well after collecting a Uttoxeter score last month.

That was his first run for a new yard and he looked to be in much better heart. Pull Again Green had defied a penalty to get that score as well.

Another of the big threats in the field is KINCARDINE who makes a hurdles debut.

He was last seen in a Southwell bumper in May, and he got himself up very well late on after settling into his groove. He looks full of potential.


Ones to watch: Doctor Ken 6/5, Kincardine 15/8

15:15 Ascot Handicap Chase Horse Racing UK Tips

Race Type: Class 3 handicap chase
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 6
Distance: 2m 7 1/2f

Race Preview

GETAROUND may be a big player in this contest having had a reappearance run under his belt three weeks ago.

That was at Chepstow following a wind op and it was on a debut for a new yard. He does need to find some kind of big bounce-back performance but he’s no forlorn hope.

EVA’S OSKAR got the better of Getaround at Chepstow last month.

So he is naturally a big player as well in this one if he can find a follow-up performance.

Eva’s Oskar was a good hurdler and never quite got things together over the fences. But that score at Chepstow puts him in good stead.

KAPGA DE LILY is interesting as she returns from a break of seven months. She was in superb form last season over the fences, and rates a danger if she picks things up fresh.

There was a ton of progress made by her in this sphere and she may not be done yet.


Ones to watch: Eva’s Oskar 10/3, Getaround 13/8

14:40 Ascot Handicap Hurdle Horse Racing Tips & Odds

Race Type: Class handicap hurdle
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 9
Distance: 1m 7 1/2f

Race Preview

CABOT CLIFFS may play a leading role in this handicap hurdle contest from Ascot on Thursday. He was in great shape over the hurdles in juvenile contests last season.

On his reappearance, he claimed a very good place finish at Chepstow in a handicap and he stays as the same mark as that. Claims are there.

METHOD MADNESS steps into handicapping for the first time and looks as if he could offer something here.

There was a victory over him in a 2m Ludlow maiden earlier this year. He has been off the track since a second at Ffos Las in April.

LEONCAVALLO warrants respect for the shortlists as well. He has been in good shape since his return and rattled the crossbar over course and distance three weeks ago.

Notably, that was in a Listed event, so his sights have been lowered. If Leoncavallo is back anywhere near that kind of form, he rates as a big danger.

Others to note in this very competitive field include CAPTAIN MORGS who drops in the trip and GARRY CLERMONT who is looking to follow up a win at Warwick on his latest.


Ones to watch: Leoncavallo 3/1, Method Madness 7/1

14:05 Ascot Handicap Chase Horse Racing Betting

Race Type: Class 2 handicap chase
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 8
Distance: 2m 5f

Race Preview

YES INDEED picked up a win at the start of the new season and was sent into a Grade 1 at Auteuil for his latest effort.

That was back in May and he ran with credit there to take a fifth-place finish.

He has been consistently progressing and this should be well within his scope.

Yes Indeed has been handed a chance by the handicapper here on his British debut.

GUY was a runner up at Market Rasen on his reappearance run, which puts him in good stead for this contest. There should be plenty more to come from him.

This is a very competitive fixture and PINK LEGEND is another that could get herself fully involved.

She picked up a win from fresh last season at Bangor over the fences.

Pink Legend went on to close out last seasons’ campaign with a Listed victory at Cheltenham with the headgear, which hasn’t been retained for this one.

Another who can’t be written off are SMARTY WILD who was just too keen too early on in his reappearance at Newbury a couple of weeks ago.

Tip: YES INDEED 10/1

Ones to watch: Guy 15/8, Pink Legend 13/2

12:55 Ascot Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase Horse Racing Odds

Race Type: Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 5
Distance: 2m 2 1/2f

Race Preview

We drop by a smaller field for this one and TORN AND FRAYED could take some beating in it as well given the previous form.

He was in great pain over the hurdles, winning a couple of times last season. He made his chase debut on his reappearance a month ago at Cheltenham.

It was a third-place finish that he took in a promising effort, and form has been franked from it, so Torn And Frayed rates as obvious danger.

FAVOR isn’t to be written off here as he picked up a win on his chasing debut at Uttoxeter last month.

He looked to have benefited from a wind op. He followed up that Uttoxeter success with a strong effort in taking fourth in a Cheltenham novice. Faivoir can challenge.

CASSAVA made a return to Ascot for his chasing debut. He won at the venue in a novice event back in March.

GOLDEN BOY GREY is a huge 10lb out of the handicap for this one and its chase debut. Still, he doesn’t look out of his depth with a couple of notable hurdles wins last season.


Ones to watch: Faivoir 13/8, Cascova 3/1

15:50 Ascot Novices’ Handicap Hurdle Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 4 novices’ handicap hurdle
Age: 3-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 7
Distance: 2m 5f

Race Preview

There are a few with claims in this one including BADDESLEY who should end up being well-supported in the market.

This test of stamina should play to his strengths.

Baddesley was last seen three weeks ago taking a runner up spot over the hurdles in a novice effort at Uttoxeter. He looks like being a good fit here.

HIDDEN DEPTHS arrives under a 7lb penalty for the fixture and also seeking a hattrick. So he is thriving at the moment.

Hidden Depths has been given a very fair opening mark which puts him right in the thick of this one on Friday.

The other that gets on the shortlist is THIRTYFOURSTITCHES who picked up a win on his debut for a new yard a month ago.

That was at Fontwell, making it three wins in his last five efforts. Thirtyfourstitches likes to get to the front and can produce a bold challenge.


Ones to watch: Baddesley 5/2, Thirtyfourstitches 4/1
