Royal Ascot Day 1 Round-Up

Royal Ascot, one of the most exciting week of sport in the year, kicking off yesterday/last night. Unfortunately, with the first race being at 11:30pm AEST/2:30pm GMT, I was already tucked up in bed, and therefore didn’t get to hear any of the races. Not that that mattered much, as I got a lovely surprise in the morning seeing that I’d won 125% of what I’d put on. Great way to start a freezing frosty morning!!

Race 1: Started the day with Gregorian placing. A good one to get in the first race, as he was a bit of an outsider. My other to-place, didn’t.

Race 2: No runners because too many numbers.

Race 3: Three horse duet with Dawn Approach, Dundonnell and Tornado, won one leg of it – Dawn Approach and Tornado. Also had Dawn Approach to place, which I got and was nice, as well as Mars, who didn’t come in.

Race 4: Three-horse duet with Championship, Stubbs and Thunder Strike. Got nothing. Mawfoor, Parbold and Thunder Strike to place, Parbold placed. I had all the favourites, but the roughies got up!

Race 5: No runners because too many numbers.

A great first day, very exciting, and at least one success in each race I had money on, which I’m happy about. Now for Day 2…
