With another exciting midweek schedule of horse racing action from across Britain, there is no doubt that all eyes will fall on Ascot and what promises to be a standout afternoon from flat racing’s biggest meeting of the summer.
On that note, for those of you looking to stick on a midweek flutter, we have searched far and wide to find you a couple of helpful tips that are worth keeping an eye out for on Tuesday.
15:35 PM – Ascot – Race 5
For our opening Tip of the Day, we take a look at what is an outstanding day at Ascot and one super sprinter who will have all eyes on him on Tuesday afternoon.
Rightfully opening the King’s Stand Stakes meeting as a clear top pick with the bookmakers, Charlie Hills’ BATTAASH has produced a string of remarkable performances over the past four seasons. Receiving hefty praise and forming an eye-catching partnership with Tuesday’s jockey Jim Crowley, he has already gained a long list of admirers for his displays in the Prix de l’Abbaye, Nunthorpe Stakes, and the King George Stakes. Claiming victory at York prior to the break and beating SOLDIER’S CALL in Class 1 meeting, BATTAASH and Crowley have picked up the victory in three of their last five starts together.
Despite finishing runner-up behind BLUE POINT in back-to-back appearances at Tuesday’s race over the past two seasons, we’re backing a rapid BATTAASH to come out on top in what is a stellar meeting at Ascot.
16:10 PM – Ascot – Race 6
For our second Tip of the Day, we turn our attention to the Duke Of Cambridge Stakes Group 2 meeting.
Marking her return from the enforced break with yet another dominant display at Kempton earlier in the month, the highly-rated NAZEEF claimed victory over BILLESDON BROOK in the EBF/Unibet Snowdrop Fillies’ Stakes. Another standout prospect that will have Jim Crowley taking the saddle on Tuesday afternoon, she finds herself in the midst of what has been a purple patch that has sent a statement across the British horse racing scene. In fact, the much-improved filly has now claimed the win in each of her last five consecutive appearances either side of the enforced break and should be chomping at a step up in class in midweek.
With Crowley believing that NAZEEF’s toughest test will come in Tuesday’s Group 2 meeting, we’re backing the high-flying four-year-old to pass with flying colours in what is flat racing’s biggest meeting of the summer.
