I used to love watching The Walking Dead.
I figured out, I thought, why it worked. The old style zombie films - there have been some great ones - could never find an apt ending. If there was a part of the film which didn't quite live up to its billing - it was the end.
With The Walking Dead being a series it didn't really need an end. It could just go on forever in a zombie kind of way. Dragging a leg, covered in blood and always following some poor victim until they were cornered in a cul-de-sac.
Well, I thought it was the answer. Perhaps it wasn't. As I'm sure many fans of The Walking Dead looked on in ''horror'' that the storyline goes so stupid that is just wasn't worth watching anymore.
Do you think Royal Ascot brings out a kind of zombie betting? Like a zombie chasing after a sheep. There's no particular reason for the chase, endeavour, addiction whatever you want to call it.
I'm sure plenty of punters aren't betting on Royal Ascot 2019 in some kind of zombie state. They bet with intelligence. I guess when a good meeting with top-class horses comes along it's going to catch the interest.
However, if you feel compelled to bet on Royal Ascot more than normal you may have become a zombie bettor without realising.
