Not sure I’ve ever seen so many mad results at one festival - surely it’s got to revert back to the norm? What do we think are the reasons for so many big prices winners? Lack of good horses? Lack of quality races in the build up to get an accurate read? Whatever it is it’s doing my bank balance in!!
It’s does seem more random than ever but that’s easy for me to say as I can’t pick my nose at the moment. But I’d say everyone’s scores are down in the comp. Sometimes when the early season form is all on soft and it suddenly changes to good to firm that can obviously leave the form looking suspect but even taking that into account this seems strange but Ascot can be a funny track that suits some horses and not others

Short answer : no idea what’s going on :)

Same here regarding the picks, I’ve had one winner so all week! It does seem most are struggling so something is amiss. You’re attending today aren’t you? Good luck, hopefully you can pick a few winners out!

How the fuck did Shaquille win that over 6f, after losing about 10 lengths at the start?

Dermot Weld got her beat in the Guineas. Left her too underdone, she should still be unbeaten. She's very high class.

I effectively gave up on the tipster competition by not backing Tahirya. I've tanked 3 days running so might as well go down in flames!

Cheers managed one winner and a couple of places with decent enough returns. Walked away slightly down overall, as I didn’t go mad due to my poor form. Like you I had had one winner up until Shaquille won (which wasn’t even my pick it was my mate’s)

I've not had one winner so far but five or six decent priced ew's and the 5th race yesterday done my placey in.

Moore is on five and Dettori is in four I think so a bit of interest going into the last day.

He’s come back well after the first day blank. He only has 5 rides today whereas Moore has a ride in every race, but every horse Frankie’s on is either Fav or second or third in the betting. Unsurprisingly so are Ryan’s mounts more or less.

Should be close but Moore has the favs in the first and last race when Frankie doesn’t have a ride and that probably puts things strongly in his favour. Still I hope he can produce some magic for you

Suspect the second could be decent there but Stoute horses rarely win first time up

Stoute’s horses rarely win at all these days. Gets a lot of ammo but not many actually go on to be high class. Not convinced Appleby’s are in good form too, they’ve had a lot of horses run like donkeys this week. Ancient Wisdom looks like he’ll enjoy a bit of juice in the ground too. Definitely still mad keen on him going forward.

I think Stoute has some good ones and was definitely in form at the start of the season but this week they’ve been woeful.
As you say Godolphin have had a lot running poorly for a while now

Nice one.

I need to find yesterdays placey slip as one of my horses was a non runner and if it was the 5th race then I've won.

I didn't now the result until I read that. I got excited but I had the other 80/1 donkey.

Haven’t missed many winners this week, because I wouldn’t have found them in 10 years but Pyledriver stings a bit. I knew he was by far the best horse in the race, I just thought he might need it so I went for Free Wind. Pyledriver always had it covered.

Very strange festival for me. Truly awful first 3 days (one winner, no places I think!). An ok Friday and a little bit better on the Saturday. Overall I’m down but it could’ve been much worse had it not been for doing better yesterday and today. Just watch for the next couple of week I think and try and get a grasp on what’s going on.

They might have another decent prospect. Imperial Emperor won the same race Baaeed won at Newmarket on Saturday and was given the same rating
