Following the amazing success of the Route 66 Service at Cheltenham I have once again been inundated by requests for a similar service on the Flat. Although the flat doesn't have a similar Festival that provides an end of Season target it does have a mid-Season Festival that attracts the very best of European and, increasingly, the world's thoroughbreds. That Festival is of course Royal Ascot and it takes place in June.
We don't really have time to cram 66 important race trials into the next 10 weeks so I propose, for those that are interested, a smaller version which I have called...
HIGHWAY 50 - THE ROAD TO ROYAL ASCOT
It's the little brother of Route 66 and will feature 50 of the most informative races that have all provided Royal Ascot winners and places over the last decade. As with the Route 66 Service with Highway 50 you'll get the trends for all 50 Races, trainer records, their importance as a Royal Ascot 'trial' and an Ante-Post portfolio that will build up over the 10 weeks leading up to Royal Ascot.
In 2017 this Ante-Post Portfolio made a profit of 24.28pts thanks to having 5 winners at 25/1, 16/1, 14/1, 12/1, 15/8 along with two places at 10/1 & 10/1
We staked 40.5pts and returned 64.78pts meaning a Return on Investment of 60% in just 10 weeks!!
And if you think that was a fluke then take a look at the results from 2016 when the smaller Route 33 Ante-Post portfolio had bets in 20 Royal Ascot races that included;
My Dream Boat - Winner at 33/1 and Across The Stars - Winner at 20/1

The first 3 races for Highway 50 are at Newmarket's Craven meeting in just over 3 weeks time and include a very important fillies trial for one of the handicap races at Royal Ascot.
If it's half as much fun as we had with the Cheltenham version it should make for a very enjoyable couple of months.
