When Saturday, January 27, 2024
First Race 1:08pm AWST

Feature racing will return to Ascot Racecourse this Saturday afternoon, where the Listed Scenic Blast Stakes will headline the nine-race card. Typical warm and dry conditions are forecast for Perth on Friday and Saturday, with a perfect Good 4 surface expected for the whole meeting. The rail will be pushed out to the +9m position for the entire circuit, which should see the track play favourably to on-speed runners. The opening race at Ascot will jump at 1:08pm AWST.

Scenic Blast Stakes Tip: Gemma’s Son

Gemma’s Son will enter the Scenic Blast Stakes third-up for this preparation, coming off a runner-up finish in the Listed Miss Andretti Stakes behind the talented Wild Belle. Since that run, this gelding has changed trainers to Embroja-Lee Altieri from David Harrison. Although this son of Snippetson was beaten at his most recent start, he was made to work wide around the home turn and lacked a strong finish. From barrier one on Saturday, Joseph Azzopardi should be able to lob in the box seat, get all the favours on the inside, and burst through late to claim a deserving win.

Best Bet at Ascot: Autumn Rebel

Autumn Rebel made it two wins on the bounce at Pinjarra on December 30, where the Darren McAuliffe-trained colt won as a long odds-on favourite over 1700m. After settling off the rail and just behind the speed, Clint Johnston-Porter had to get busy on this guy, but he responded quickly, as he ran to the lead at the 150m mark and won easily. This son of The Autumn Sun has won three of his last four starts, which were the first three victories of his career. With him stepping up in distance to 1800m with Johnston-Porter sticking, we expect Autumn Rebel to prove too good once again and bring up a hattrick of wins.

Best Bet

Race 5 – Silks#10 Autumn Rebel (9)

Next Best at Ascot: King’s Parade

Darren McAuliffe and Clint Johnston-Porter will combine once again in the following race with King’s Parade, who is also seeking a hattrick of wins after recording narrow victories in his past two. At his most recent start, this son of Impending ran home from midfield to nab Rocket Juice in the shadows of the post due to a strong finishing burst over the final 200m. From barrier five, Johnston-Porter will attempt to get this guy into a similar mid-field position off the rail and allow him to build his momentum on the home turn. If King’s Parade can let down with that turn of foot again, he will prove hard to beat again.

Next Best

Race 6 – silks#9 King’s Parade (5)

Best Value at Ascot: Fashion Stakes

Fashion Stakes recorded her first victory of the preparation at her most recent start, defeating a small field of rivals over 1500m at this track on December 28. The Neville Parnham-trained mare settled on speed and followed the leader every step of the way before letting down with a strong finish to take over and win by just under one length. With little to no speed in this contest on Saturday, Chris Parnham can push forward, settle in the first four, and build into the final 400m before letting down strong. If Fashion Stakes can get across the field without doing too much work, she can give a good sight at double figures with online bookmakers.

Best Value

Race 3 – Silks#9 Fashion Stakes (11)
