Royal Ascot 2017 was another year full of fantastic performances but I have narrowed it down to my five personal highlights. I have tried to leave the punting side of my mind out (very difficult) and strictly focus on what I enjoyed watching from a racing stand point. Royal Ascot really is a special place and continues to attract the best horses every year and what is more special is the fact they come from all over the globe to compete! With English, Irish, French and American winners this year we were treated to a truly international festival. Working from fifth to first here are the best performances/races.
