Set The Sails was one of the better things beaten you will ever see on debut. He got back to last the fence and was badly held up until the last 300m before flying home to finish a narrow second. He ran the fastest last 600,400 & 200m of the day in the process. Expect him to settle much handier here from barrier four. Looks a real talent!
We made her a black booker after a good effort here first up. She is a lightly raced four year old mare with a stack of upside and is drawn to get a perfect run for Craig Newitt from barrier eight. Expecting her to be in the finish.
Seb Song has come up $4.40 in early markets. He resumed in his second preparation with a narrow win at Cranbourne a fortnight ago. He will derive good benefit from that run and stepping to the mile suits but he is up against a few progressive types here and I’m not sure he represents any value at the current quote.

Our Ascot Horse Racing Tips for Saturday’s meeting. Key Comments The track is Good and the rail is +6 metre for the entire circuit. The feature race is the $125,000 Detonator Stakes (race 8). Best Bet Siren Assault (Ascot Race 2 No. 7) This filly led and beat all except the talented Golden Vale on debut then was sent for a spell. She resumes after 17 weeks on the back of 2 excellent trials. Has drawn well and should be hard to beat, $2.50
