Royal Ascot 2015 Day 2 – Competition

Day one of Royal Ascot saw a certain participant excel as Sean stole a march on the rest of the pack with an impressive profit on a difficult day’s punting with a couple lagging in rears. However, this is a marathon, not a sprint so there is plenty of time for those who had poor days yesterday to fight back. Let’s not forget Luke didn’t particularly have a good time of it at Cheltenham this year until he napped Next Sensation to (cruelly) deny Calum the grand prize.

Here are the totals from day one.

With Calum leading the competition for the last two days, he looked in a strong position going into the final day. Although Peace And Co did the business for him, Luke’s final nap Next Sensation went in at 16/1 to ensure he stole the competition from under Calum’s nose. It was a good effort today from Sean who bagged a 25/1 winner with Wicklow Brave which made sure he ended the week in profit.

Royal Ascot winner Michael ended the week slightly out of profit whilst Wubyer did much better than expected. Ant’s performance wasn’t as bad as the person who ran the competition who will need a miracle if ever he is to win one of these competitions.
