Royal Ascot 2014 (Day 5)


It’s the final day of the 2014 Royal Ascot meeting and we are all set for another day of top notch action.

Finally there was some success for the blog in the last race of the day yesterday as the 33/1 shot Louis The Pious powered down the stands’ rail to win the Buckingham Palace Stakes. Backed by myself at 50/1 early on Friday morning I watched in amazement as Silvestre de Sousa set sail from the pack two furlongs from home and held them all off.

As you know I’m not a bragger or a boom man on Twitter but I certainly believe that a big priced winner is worth a tweet. Amazingly three sore losers unfollowed me immediately after this tweet? There’s nowt as queer as folk!

Today’s Royal Ascot fancies:

2.30 Ascot- Richard Pankhurst (e/w).

3.05 Ascot- Elidor & Lahaag (e/w).

3.45 Ascot- Dandino (e/w).

4.25 Ascot- Slade Power (e/w).
