Top tipster Andrew Mount has three bets on Friday, day four of Royal Ascot. Check out his thoughts below, with all selections backable via the Tote who currently have an offer in place which provides new customers with a £10 welcome offer.
MOONEISTA – (3.40 Ascot, 1pt each-way, 25/1)
MOONEISTA was third (demoted from second) behind A Case Of You at Naas last time but wasn’t best drawn and will appreciate the likely stronger gallop here. Since her debut, her record in fields of 12+ runners reads 22312 (1-5), with the second places by a short head, a neck and three-quarters of a length (14-1).
She did best of those to come from off the pace when a 50-1 third in the other. She strikes me as the type of horse who might prove better in a better race and she makes each-way appeal.
POTAPOVA – (4.20 Ascot, 1pt win, 14/1)
The unbeaten POTAPOVA was entitled to win at Redcar last time, as she was the 1/5 favourite, but she still impressed after coming from off the pace on the slowest part of the track.
The winning margin was eight lengths and she’d scored in similar fashion on her debut, bolting up by six and a half lengths. There could be any amount of improvement to come and she’s worth a speculative interest at a big price.
MO CELITA – (6.10 Ascot, 1pt win 9/1)
MO CELITA took her record for Adrian Nicholls to 11111 (5-5) when bolting up in a fast time in a 5f Haydock handicap last time and can continue the sequence here. She’s gone up 8lb but scored with any amount in hand and won’t mind if the forecast rain arrives. Oisin Murphy is an excellent booking and stall 12 gives him options.
