October 2 Betting Tips: River Nymph to fly at Ascot

All eyes are on ParisLongchamp but tipster Ross Brierley is focused on some tres bien domestic value at Ascot, including a Ferrero Rocher sweet pick.

Ross's picks are noted in society for the tipster's exquisite taste. He is really spoiling us…

Ascot 3.15 - Great Ambassador

Ross likes the Ed Walker trained Great Ambassador in the six furlong Group 3 at Ascot. The four year-old Exceed And Excel gelding finished a decent second last time out in the Ayr Gold Cup.

Richard Kingscote gets the leg up at Ascot in the big runner field.

Here's a snippet of why Ross thinks that Great Ambassador will be a leading light.

"Great Ambassador looked a group horse in waiting, he's already won listed honours at York and he has a huge chance here. He ran really well in the Britannia last year, not staying at this track, six furlongs on good to soft ground should be absolutely perfect for Ed Walker's charge.

He's got Glen Shiel to beat who's a genuine Group 1 performer at the track on his best but he is seven years old, Great Ambassador is four and hopefully he can improve past him today and go on to bigger and better things next season."

Ascot 3.50 - River Nymph

River Nymph catches Ross' eye in the 3.50 at Ascot with Clive Cox's four year-old a course and distance winner.

The Cable Bay colt won a competitive Victoria Cup over seven furlongs on soft ground in May so should handle the rain eased conditions in Berkshire.

Regular rider Adam Kirby gets the job again at Ascot.

Here's a Ferrero Rocher sized morsel of why Great Ambassador should get a good reception.

"He's won his last two starts over course and distance, including a 27 runner handicap back in May.

That will have put him primed for this contest, Adam Kirby gets on very well with him and he barely puts a foot wrong over this distance, so everything looks in place for a huge run, providing that seven box isn't a negative."
