Feature Race Race 8: W.A. Oaks (2400m)

It is W.A. Oaks Day on Saturday afternoon at Ascot Racecourse where nine races are set down for judgement on a track rated a Good 4, with the rail out 3m the entire circuit. Horsebetting’s WA form expert is confident he has found a couple of winners to help round out your Saturday afternoon on the punt, including a top tip in Saturday’s feature, the Group 3 W.A. Oaks.

Ascot racing is set to get underway at 12:22pm AWST (3:22pm AEDT).

W.A. Oaks Top Tip – Constant Dreaming

The Group 3 W.A. Oaks over 2400m for the three-year-old fillies is the feature event on Saturday’s program and is worth $250,000. Having won the Listed 1000 Ascot Guineas two starts ago and then the Listed Natasha Stakes last time out, the Adam Durrant-trained Constant Dreaming is clearly the one to beat. The Blackfriars filly looks to do her best racing when stalking the speed and popping out on the home turn, before unleashing a nice turn of foot and from barrier four looks set to do just that. She is undefeated through two starts at Ascot and that record is almost certainly going to stay intact and we believe the $2.20 from Bet365 is a nice price to launch into.

Ascot Best Bet – Catalpa

There are no prizes for tipping a $1.95 shot as the best bet of the day, but the Grant Williams-trained Catalpa looks perfectly placed to build on his last start win at the Ascot 1400m when second-up from a spell. The Rios gelding managed to settle outside the leader on that day and when asked for an effort inside the final furlong quickened nicely and was pulling away from his rivals late in the piece. He steps up to the mile on Saturday, a trip he has had one start at for a win, and despite drawing barrier nine, he looks a clear best bet of the day. With speed drawn to his outside, Patrick Carbery looks set to gain a cart across the field and if Catalpa lobs in the one-one after 200m the race might well be over as quick as that.

Ascot Next Best – Panzdown

Simon Miller and Holly Watson are set to combine in the opening leg of the quaddie, with the four-year-old gelding Panzdown. The bay gelding chased home Acromantula last time out and was taking good ground off the leader/winner. On Saturday she steps up to the 1200m for just the second time in his career, but at his sole start at the six furlongs, he managed to fill a minor placing, so the trip will be no issue. With Watson’s 2kg claim, he goes around with 57.5kg on his back and from barrier one is set to stalk the speed throughout. Armed with a strong turn of foot, Panzdown should quicken nicely and has the ability to win against this lot.

Ascot Best Value – Critical Altitude

With four runner-up efforts to her name and a win two runs back from five runs this campaign, the Neville Parnham-trained Critical Altitude is racing in form, but continually find one better in each of her races in recent times. However, Saturday looks to be the day that the four-year-old mare adds a second win to name as she looks set to gain an uncontested lead out in front. Her early speed from the barrier negates the fact she is drawn out in 11 and Steve Parnham looks set to dictate terms with relative ease aboard the Exosphere mare. With a well-rated front running steer, Critical Attitude looks a great bet at around $7.50 with Australian bookmakers.
