Well I sit back at my desk in South Dublin......all over for another year. I have to say I loved it this year in Royal Berkshire.
Wednesday was a classy as ever, got there pretty early and the champagne had been flowing enroute, people milling about, taking photo's just taking in the splendor of Royal Ascot.
It was nice as one of my party had an £85 win from a fiver & it's the 1st year she's won, so everyone came away happy.
Friday I'd name is Esscot, far too packed, far too many women who have no idea how to dress and a fair few people there would not have seen a horse all day....Friday won't be on my request list this Autumn.
Here's my results from Friday & Saturday, didn't get to post my picks up as I flew back to Dublin on Saturday so couldn't get online in the morning.

Slightly up in the end on the blog bets....I had some decent each wayers up on the days I was there but no massive wins to speak of. The Goldoplin need to get their 1st string back in action for Goodwood....I need to see Ramonti back on the course.
After all is said and done, the champers no longer in the fridge, the suit in the drycleaners and the racecard placed on the shelf with the others I don't think I'll make 25k, I reckon I'll get to 10 with Goodwood round the corner.
I could up my level stake but that's the road to the poor house.
Catch you at the weekend for two listed races at Newcastle.
