Today’s 5 Horse Racing Tips from Henry at Ascot and Fontwell

Royal Ascot tips

Today’s five horse racing tips come from Henry and he’s picked out selections from Ascot and Fontwell for today’s bets. There are reasons for each selection below as we build up to a weekend of top class action from Longchamp.

Before betting on today’s racing, consider collecting some free bets for the Prix De l’Arc de Triomphe this weekend including a £20 cash refund if you lose and four free £5 bets when you bet £5.


3:05 Ascot

The 3:05 contest from Ascot is a Class 3 handicap over 7f. It’s a nice little race on paper as Raaeq bids to make it three wins in five runs for Brian Meehan.

I like TIGER CRUSADE here though for the David Simcock team. He made a pleasing debut before winning his next two starts. He then ran over course and distance and finished a fine third. I think he is better than his current mark and I think this race will be run to suit. Jamie Spencer has been riding well recently with a 25% strike rate in the last 2 weeks and hopefully he can add to that here on this unexposed sort.


4:15 Ascot

The 4:15 race is a Novice Stakes over just shy of 1m4f. Big talking horse Tyson Fury heads the market at a short price here but I’m happy to take him on here.

I like GOLDEN RULES NAP here. I was very taken with his debut 4th at Lingfield where he stayed on well over 1m2f suggesting this step up in trip would be perfect. It was a great debut education wise and I believe this horse will be seriously improved today with that run under his belt. Powerful connections, trained by John Gosden and out of Golden Horn, what more could you ask for?


4:50 Ascot

The 4:50 is next up and it is a Class 2 handicap over 6f.

I like COLD FRONT NB here for the William Haggas and Tom Marquand combination. He was second last time out at Doncaster over 7f and he shown good pace there and looked the winner at the 2f pole. This step back to 6f will be just what he needs and I think he will take a lot of beating today.


1:00 Fontwell

Fontwell hosts a NH card for us and the 1:00 is an intriguing beginners chase for us to get stuck into.

The one for me is COOLANLY. This horse has already had a couple of runs over fences placing on both occassions. He shown enough to warrant selection here as I am hopeful he can put his experience to good use today. Fergal O’Brien and Paddy Brennan team up on the selection and the pair couldn’t be in better form.


2:10 Fontwell

The next selection comes in the 2:10 contest and it appears an intriguing handicap chase on paper in a race I expect there to be plenty future winners running.

The one today for me is COBRA DE MAI. This horse was last seen running a solid race at the Cheltenham Festival where he finished sixth in a top handicap contest. He has a fine record fresh and I think he has scope to improve again this term. The Skelton team are slowly running into the form we expect of them at this time of the year and I think they have a lovely contender in this contest.
