So lets be having all your best selections for Ascot alongside any special offers you see that we should be taking advantage of.  No doubt there will be selection a plenty for Fred but with Tikay and Tighty both on a Jolly there might be a lack of posting on there. 

It looks like it's going to be proper fast ground with predicted sunshine.

I'm probably going to take a few days off to watch the lot and enjoy a few cold ones while doing so.

So you are a fan of the Monarchy, and our wonderful Royal Family, after all.

Can we expect to see you applauding the Royal Procession, bowing as Her Majesty passes by, and enthusiastically waving the Union Jack?

Never mind all this horse racing, is there a 'what colour hat will the Queen wear' market we can get stuck into?

Royal Ascot?  Really?  Stratford and Uttox jumps tomorrow and Wednesday with the Greyhound derby inbetween on Tues night at Towcester.  What a lovely little road trip around the Midlands in the sun.  No fancy dress required either.  Shorts and flip flops fine at all venues

I'm going for gold.:

Ribchester - Queen Anne
Kings Stand - Lady Aurelia
Prince of Wales - Jack Hobbs
Norfolk - McErin
Gold Cup - Order of St George
Commonwealth - Caravaggio
St James Palace - Barney Roy

£50 acca.  If that wins I'm taking 3 month off going to Portugal for 8 weeks and Vegas for the Main Event.  ( I can dream)

1-3 RyRy is buying money. Wins easily barring unforeseens.

Double Ryan @ 1-3 with Mayweather @ 1-6, comes to almost 4-7. Luvverly.

Can't see Moore not winning top Jock. 

Thought Frankie might be worth a tickle at the prices though.

Missing all this as going to Vegas (thin).  Good luck all.

FWIW arbboy not sure the dress code is the deciding factor.  I went to York on Saturday and there were 4 handicaps with over 16 runners. 

Where we were, every single bookie bar 1 was going a fifth first 4.  I was reading through the racecard and there was some guff saying that every bookie had to offer at least a fifth first 4 when over 16 runners.  How is that protecting the punters?  When did this become nornal?

Would defo wear a jacket to get quarter first 4.

Most of the bets placed so far seem more like hopeful punts rather than value spots

WOn't be having many issues with EW terms at Uttox and Stratford tomorrow.  Small fields, low margins the bookies bet to.  Win only is the order of the day.  1/5 1,2,3,4 is minimum standards required to offer on course 16-19 runners,  1/4 1,2,3,4 for 20+ runners.  Some of the traditional old school layers still offer 1/4 on 16+ plus the high st firms on course as well.  Just a case of shopping around.

I think you should be wearing a fascinator as well just as a token gesture to RA and her maj.

I got 5/6 in my acca of first 3 in the betting.  Pretty unlucky today in that the one that beat me was literally a toss up, would have been a stonking Ascot had that came in.  Cheerfilly was the culprit today.

More likely my Golden State Warriors baseball cap as a token gesture to the NBA legends who made me a right pretty penny this season! Fuck fascinators!
