Ascot Chase Raceday Betting Tips
The Ascot Chase Raceday takes place on Saturday, as part of the build-up to Royal Ascot in June. The trainers and jockeys will be hoping for a strong performance in order to gain notoriety and momentum leading into a huge couple of months of elite racing. Remember that all of the horse racing betting odds are available at our online betting.
Bet UK will have all of the Royal Ascot betting tips for the huge festival when it comes around in the summer.
NAP of the Day
The big race of the day is of course the Ascot Chase itself, which gets underway at 15:55. This is the sole Grade 1 race of what is being dubbed Super Saturday in some quarters and will be live on ITV Racing.
In a very competitive field, it is Waiting Patiently that we believe to be worth a look at odds of 7/4*. Trained by Ruth Jefferson, Waiting Patiently is unbeaten in five starts over fences and has had some really impressive rides. The 8-year-old will be ridden by BS Hughes on Saturday, and the same combination of jockey and horse won this exact race a year ago, beating Cue Card to win with a sensational run.
The recent bout of equine flu is not a worry in the Ruth Jefferson camp, as the horses have received their vaccinations and are ready to run. Waiting Patiently did unseat in the King George, but hopefully will not be fazed by that here.
Dark Horse of the Day
The Hurdle is taking place from 15:20 as a build up to the Ascot Chase Raceday and it looks like an open field. Al Dancer starts as the favourite with odds of 5/2*, but the Bet UK tip on this occasion will be Lisp at odds of 8/1*. This horse finished second to Mohaayed back in December at the same track, so the course will be very familiar.
Trained by Alan King and ridden by Wayne Hutchinson, this slight outsider suits the dark horse billing to a tee. Other Horses with a good chance in the 15:20 at Ascot on Saturday are Getaway Trump at 3/1* and Didtheyleaveuoutto at 15/2*.
‘Super Saturday’ promises to live up to its name this time around, with the Ascot Chase as the main event.
