    Royal Ascot - Day 1

    I used to avoid APost betting at this meeting but I now think it's almost as important as it is at Cheltenham. If you're well in on the prices you have so much scope in terms of locking in profit.

    Queen Anne - I have Lightning Spear ew at 7s for the opener and have topped up with singles at 5s and 9/2 with the two firms offering money back as a freebie if you lose. Presuming that happens said bets will go on top up later in the week.

    King's Stand. Signs of Blessing 8/1 ap and topped up at 8.2 on the machine. I'm slightly worried about the ground with this one but he's run well enough on good, including in the Far East. Also backed Marsha at 4s in a double with Daban for the Jersey (cover both races). Nasty feeling a rag might take this, can't have the fav.

    SJP. I'm in an excellent possie in this race as I have Barney Roy as a second part of a double with Ribchester (Lockinge, both 3/1) and have topped up since at 11/4 and 5/2. I will probably go in again tomorrow. I have protection as Churchill was backed in a double a bit ago with Le Brivido (like Daban in the Jersey) at 8/11 and 5/1. Have lost a little on Al Wukair ap in this race.

    No other interests on the first day.

    Christ, a top poster on here starts a thread for the biggest flat week of the year and not a single response.

    is the racing actually **** poor or does no one here like the flat?
    Some people say heís the best since Arkle and thatís certainly true when you look at what heís done

    On yer bike The flat's a decent game for local forum members, there's nothing for you here Granger


    Looks an excellent days racing tomorrow, My money's going the way of:
    Ribchester is the obvious choice but I can see him slightly weak in the market tomorrow on account of the ground so we should see 11/8 tomorrow I reckon, He wins for me.

    No opinion on the Coventry but is of course a very interesting race as always.

    Kings Stand-Big fan of Marsha and have her in singles and a double with Jack Hobbs, will have a saver on Goldream as he's another who comes alive on this ground and was unlucky last time at

    PS: Hills offering a 1/5 3 places on this race is nothing short of pathetic

    No bet in the SJP just hopefully another tussle to savour, Churchill wins, Barneys day will come though,

    Oh aye. I had to work a couple of years back and it nearly killed me. Never again.

    Hopefully this place will pick up during the week. My excitement level isn't at Cheltenham level - 8 on the richter scale rather than a 10. Can't wait.

    Yeah should do, there's still a few good posters about in the summer months, mind you it's a shame gus isn't about at the moment.

    Not me alas, I just about get away with using 7 days holiday for Cheltenham and Aintree

    Will be laying Ribchester in the first-my nap of the week.Bet365 are going 1/4 odds -4 places best price in the village on the Kings Stand-this is an excellent offer.I am going to throw a few quid each way on Washington DC-he is drawn next to the juicehead -and if she scorches the turf it might drag him into the race.

    Thought similarly myself, as the Yank is likely to tow them along on the stand rail. Can't see Marsha lasting home given that pace scenario, either.

    Great meeting and I love that Wesley Ward brings some over as it makes it a better meeting in my view. The only frustration thing is it is hard to judge any form and they could be anything. Prices aren't as short as I thought on his so am a icking them in some each way multiples.

    I agree with Luke that Ribchester is worth taking on and Mutakeyef for me is the one to be on.

    I also like Oceane for Alan King on the card, ground should be fine.

    Rivet is over priced returned to fast ground 7f. I think they will go too quick and it will pick up some place money.

    Good luck all, looks like I am being made redundant today so I'll need something to cheer this afternoon!

    Bugger, that is a school boy error. Got to hope he is settled better and can come home strong at the finish then. Fast ground should suit....

    Excellent betting style. I'm looking at e/w multiples with 365 around Barney Roy.

    I love flat racing but I have to agree that its nothing like Cheltenham. Also there is just too many short ones this week.

    I don't understand why they don't run/win the Jersey with him.

    I'm hoping that Brother Bear will kick off what could be a very good meeting for Jessie. Both her 2yo's are currently top rated for their gender by RPR and her runner in the Gold Cup has huge potential although going into the unknown this week. Muthmir could be back to former levels and at the price looks value especially with those going 5 places.
    Oceane is the other one I've backed.
