The first Group status race to run at Ascot’s WA Guineas Day this afternoon is Race 5 – the $125,000 Group 3 R.J. Peters Stakes (1500m) scheduled to start at 6:05pm (AEDST).
The 2010 R.J. Peters Stakes final field features 12 runners with Impressive Jeuney the current $3.60 favourite to win the showdown at Luxbet.
Drawn in barrier nine, Darren McAuliffe’s promising four-year-old mare Impressive Jeuney is coming off a first-up second this season in a 1400m race at Belmont, and dropping back from 58kg to a far more manageable 53kg in the R.J. Peters Stakes today looks a top chance.
Impressive Jeuney is also our pick of the field, so we are sticking with the favourite in Race 5 at Ascot today.
Ascot – Race 5 – R.J. Peters Stakes Tips
- Races.com.au Favourite: #9 Impressive Jeuney – Rated Special to Win at $3.60 Luxbet
- Best Place Picks: #11 Morant and #12 Ranger
To add value to your R.J. Peters Stakes betting this afternoon, two runners at longer odds to add into the multiples with the favourite are Morant and Ranger.
Coming up trumps with the barrier one draw, the Bill and Symon Wilde-trained Morant is another good light-weight chance and can finish in the money with a bit of luck.
Test Rossa gelding Ranger broke their maiden status with a win over 1303m on October 31 and should continue to perform having found form and is another runner advantaging from a weight drop here.
