Azzopardi should get a nice run from his alley and her form keeps her under notice. Failed to come on last start wen 5th of 7 at Ascot over 1200m on May 7 but previously good 2nd Ascot 1000m is a better form line here.
Ascot Race 3 Tips | 3:22 PM | 1400m
Top Tip – SNIPPY MISS (12)
Jockey: Clint Johnston-Porter | Trainer: A Durrant
Overdue for win seconds at past three runs. Runner-up past three Ascot runs 1200-1400m and looks likely to figure in the finish again despite wide alley. Will get back but should be running on strongly.
Place Tip – KELLY’S SECRET (8)
Jockey: Ms Jade McNaught | Trainer: A Durant
A stablemate of out top selection Snippy Miss and looks good value hereafter one run back from a spell. Belmont 1650m winner last August and is not the roughest here by far.

Place Tip – MISS FROST (8)
Jockey: William Pike | Trainer: Luke Fernie
Has undergone a few training changes but now back in the Luke Fernie camp. Not beaten far when 4th to Sir Mambo, Ascot 1100m May 2. William Pike has stuck.

Jockey: Joseph Azzopardi | Trainer: Neville Pateman
Rarely runs a bad race and looks well placed here from the favourable alley. A win and three seconds past five starts put her in the race with strong claims. Nice second to Miss Conteki, Ascot 1000m May 29. Each-way.
Ascot Race 5 Tips | 4:41 PM | 1800m
Top Tip – PORPHYRIO (2)
Jockey: Jarrad Noske | Trainer: Brett Pope

Place Tip – LAUFEY
Jockey: William Pike | Trainer: Liz Strempel
Hasn’t won for 12 months but will be well fancied with Pike in the pigskin. The best recent run was two starts back when a closing 4th Ascot 1600m on April 18. The extra 200m should help.
Place Tip – THAT’S FUNNY AZ (13)
Jockey: Ms Jade McNaught | Trainer: Dion Luciani
Won 3 of last five so doesn’t have to improve much here. The last start beat Divine Shadow Ascot 1800m on May 9 so you know he can handle the middle distance trip.

Top Tip – CONDOR HEROES (3)
Jockey: Shaun McGrudy | Trainer: Chris Gangemi
Won as he liked Ascot 1000m last start on May 2 making it back-to-back 1000m wins here. Similar conditions here and he should complete the hat-trick.
Place Tip – FRED DAG (6)
Jockey: Paul Harvey | Trainer: Bruce Watkins
Good close when speed is on as it should be here. This is probably short of his best distance but fresh since 6th behind Red Can Man Ascot 1400m in March. Look for him late.
Place Tip – RIVER BEAU
Jockey: Jason Whiting | Trainer: Bruce Watkins
Comes into this with strong claims having won his last two starts Ascot 1000m on April 25 after similar win same track and course on April 10. Will go well with “The Fish” in the saddle.

Top Tip – KELVIN (10)
Jockey: Jade McNaught | Trainer: Fred Kersley
Has found form and a lot to like about his solid last start win beating Kennedy Belmont 1000m dash on May 11. Distance no problem and has enough gate speed to contest early.
Place Tip – MANKIND (3)
Jockey: William Pike | Trainer: Hayden Ballantyne
Third to the speedy Condor Heroes Ascot 1000m May 2 when resuming and will strip much fitter for the run. Albany winner over 1230m before a spell and certainly has strong each-way claims.

Jockey: Mitchell Pateman | Trainer: Brett Pope
Has to overcome wide gate but has enough speed to get across. Her recent form is hard to fault and just beat Snippy Miss to land the prize Ascott 1200m May 2. Should handle the trip with the right run.

A quality sprinter who has drawn to get all the favours here. Winner of almost $4 million in prizemoney and 13 of his 26 starts. Has won two trials suggesting he will be ready for a first-up tilt and is a first-up winner four times. Looks the class runner.
