Loader’s Lucky 15 – Friday’s 500/1 multiple featuring four fancied runners at Ascot

Racing expert, Chris Loader rolls four of his selections at Ascot today into this 500/1 Lucky 15 on Friday 22nd November.

We had a winner with Baddesley Knight and a place with Storm Arising at Wincanton on Thursday. However I’m looking to build on that with some success at Ascot today.

1.30 Ascot – Fred
(Daryl Jacob/Nicky Henderson)

The Simon Munir & Isaac Soeude owned gelding ran a perfectly respectable race in a warm Novice Hurdle at Cheltenham for Nicky Henderson. He still remains a maiden under rules but has some good form from his days in France. I think going up in trip will be no problem at all and I think connections have found a good opportunity to break his duck.

2.40 Ascot – Sky Pirate
(Jonjo O’Neill jnr/Jonjo O’Neill)

I have a lot of time for this horse as he always has been on my radar. I backed him in an amateur race at Cheltenham when he looked the winner until he slipped and brought down Patrick Mullins. He’s a good stayer and a strong traveller and looks very well handicapped of a rating of 132. Also Jonjo O’Neill jnr is able to claim three pounds which is another bonus. He is my strongest fancy on the card and is due to land a big race.

3.15 Ascot – Orchardstown Cross
(Nick Scholfield/Jeremy Scott)

This horse just doesn’t know how to stop winning and was very impressive when he won at Exeter last time out. I was there that day and the way he travelled through the field was magnificent. The handicapper has raised him nine pounds but he could still have more to offer.

3.50 Ascot – Red Force One
(Harry Cobden/Paul Nicholls)

The four-year-old ran a cracker here in a Listed Handicap Hurdle behind Gumball. This appears to be an easier contest than last time and I think he’s still well treated off 129. As long as the ground remains on the good side I think he takes all the beating.
