Best From The West: Ascot - 21st December 2019

After last week’s meeting being off there are ten on this Saturday.

The big race is the Group 2 Ted Van Heemst at WFA in the lead up to the Perth Cup.

In the small field, it could well be a trot and canter for a fair way and those giving away a couple of lengths will have to sprint fast.

For that reason we reckon Gatting is the one to beat. He's been contesting all the main races around the carnivals and is still giving plenty.

Jamie Kah is back on and she was the one to get his biggest win in the Group 1 Makybe Diva back in September.

No doubt he meets good horses here but you'd think the Perth Cup at handicap level would suit a few more than this.

The following race is the Starstruck Classic and there is a little value in the shape of Snowchino.

She is well suited out to the mile now coming off some excellent efforts in the two mare lead up races.

Leading and just fading late in the Jungle Mist, she did similar in the Jungle Dawn but finished much closer.

Now out to the right trip for her, she might just be able to control this and being fitter, get going earlier. She's worth a gamble both totes.


BET OF THE DAY: Race 8 #2 Gatting @ $3.60

EACH WAY PLAY: Race 9 #5 Snowchino @ $6.50
