Racing Post reporter provides hilarious commentary of racegoers at Royal Ascot

The Racing Post produced a video with their reporter having great craic with punters heading into Aintree for the Grand National meeting back in April.

Two months later and they have repeated the feat, giving a comedy take of in-running commentary as fans headed into Ascot for the Royal Meeting.

Video from the Racing Post.

The five-day festival is the highlight of the flat racing calendar in the UK and attracts bumper crowds, dressed in their finest.

This year's meeting has been plagued by poor weather, but it does not seem to have dampened spirits.

While the video may have lacked any footage of the Queen in attendance, we eagerly await the next installment.
