Nap Of the Day

Fiddlerontheroof - 2:25 Ascot (Swinley Chase)

The first selection in our UK horse racing betting tips is Colin Tizzard-trained Fiddlerontheroof. A 9/4 chance in the UK horse racing betting online markets for this three-mile race, he was second last time out at Newbury in the Ladbrokes Trophy Chase. He also finished a valiant second behind Monkfish at the 2021 Cheltenham Festival in the Brown Advisory Novices' Chase. His last victory came over a shorter distance, but given he has experience over this distance, we think he'll perform well here.

Dark Horse of the Day Zacony Rebel - 3:00 Ascot

Our dark horse of the day in our online horse betting odds comes in the form of Zacony Rebel. Trained by Toby Lawes, he's become a strong novice hurdler since his reappearance at Huntingdon and finished first at Ludlow last time out. He's upped in distance for this race to two miles, three furlongs, but he is lowered in weight to 10-9, which could play to his advantage here.

Longshot of the Day Bean In Trouble - 4:10 Ascot

Our longshot of the day in the horse racing betting online markets at Ascot is Bean In Trouble. A 9/1 chance for this race, he's featured strongly for Jonjo O'Neill even though he's been high up the weights, but we feel he'll appreciate softer ground this time rather than heavy, which could help his cause on a tricky Ascot track.

Ascot Chase Betting Stats

When looking at the Ascot Chase, some betting trends of the last renewals stand out, one of which is 71% of runners and winners fell under odds of 10/1 or shorter and 73% of runners placed within their last two starts. It's also worth noting that 89% of runners trained in England when they last won, which is only proven by the lack of Irish trainers on the winning list.
