Ellerslie racing tips

Race 1. (11:00) Bentleys Chartered Accountants Handicap (1200m)

#5 – Pour the Wine @ $2.20

Pour the Wine has come of age this preparation after scoring wins at Pukekohe.

The four-year-old mare by Telperion owns three wins over the distance, and her confidence levels are right up.

Dropping to 54kg makes her the one to beat.

Race 3. (11:35) Eagle Charters BM65 (1500m)

#8 – Savacat @ $5

Savacat disappointed last time out at Hastings, but that came on a heavy surface.

The four-year-old mare by Savabeel owns a win and five placings from 10 starts, and the each-way odds appeal.

We expect her to be fighting out the finish.

Race 5. (12:52) Skycity Horizon Uncle Remis Stakes (1200m)

#5 – Merchant Queen @ $2.50

Merchant Queen started her career with three consecutive wins before placing behind Crocetti.

That form is excellent for this race, and the three-year-old daughter of Merchant Navy could get back to winning form.

Getting $2.50 is a fair price from bookmakers.

Race 6. (13:28) Eagle Technology Avondale Guineas (2100m)

#15 – Orchestral @ $1.75

Orchestral is one of the more promising types in New Zealand following a big performance at the Karaka Millions.

The three-year-old filly owns three wins and two placings from six starts, and rising to 2100m only helps her chances.

The short odds are warranted.

Ascot Park racing tips

Race 2. (10:43) Heineken Maiden (1600m)

#1 – Gentle Ben @ $4.80

Gentle Ben is getting close to breaking through following a second placing at Ascot Park.

The four-year-old gelding handles all track conditions, and there are no superstars racing in this field.

Punters get each-way odds, which are worth snapping up.

Race 4. (11:52) Cruickshank Pryde Southland Stakes (1400m)

#4 – The Radiant One @ $2.60

Form is with The Radiant One, who won at Riccarton last time out in good fashion.

The five-year-old daughter of Darci Brahma is a four-time winner overall, and she’s unbeaten in two starts at the track.

We expect her form to continue on Saturday.

Race 6. (13:00) White Robe Lodge BM75 (1200m)

#4 – Madam Dubai @ $4.20

The four-year-old mare owns four wins from 13 starts, including last time out at Riccarton Park.

She is a two-time winner over the distance, and we’re not surprised by the money coming for her throughout the week.

Take the odds before they firm on race day.

Race 8. (14:10) Ascot Park Hotel Southland Guineas (1600m)

#9 – Aberlour @ $4

Bet365Best Bookmaker for NZ!Join Now

Aberlour has looked impressive winning her last two starts, including a quality win at Gore last time out.

The three-year-old daughter by Mongolian Khan is bred to rise in distance, and she’s our clear top pick for this race.

Carrying 55kg helps her cause.
