Some really good racing at Ascot, especially the first race which is anyone’s guess who will win that.   The 3 runner Novice chase 2.30, also looks like being a good race, I would like to see Finian’s Oscar win, I backed him when he was below par last time, that was over 2 miles, its back to a more preferable trip today of 2m 5f.  Hopefully he can prove himself back over this trip.

Todays free tips are as follows:

Horse: Divine Spear

Time: 1.20 Ascot

Current Odds: 5/4

Although short priced and inexperienced over fences, I think this horse could well improve a fair bit for the switch from hurdles to the bigger obstacles.  Having won at Catterick recently over fences, he will improve for that run, his trainers horses are flying, and I think he can be too good for his rivals.  The biggest possible threat could come from Exitas, he has been running well, and has a good claimer riding.

 

Horse: Posh Trish

Current Odds: 3.40 Ascot

Current Odds: 5/1 EW

I was taken with Posh Trish when she won at Cheltenham 34 days ago, in what is a very strong race today, with lots with chances and big reputations to live up to, this race will take a bit of winning, that is why I am betting her each way,  as she is round 5/1 with some firms.  Of rivals, it is quite difficult to know where to start on dangers, Gallashers Cross, Bullionaire, and Hidden Glen are all unbeaten.  All are promising types, I just think this big filly Posh Trish can be right in the mix in this race.
