Hi all. I am new as a poster but have followed threads over the past couple of years with interest :) Could it be worth arrnaging the plunge as a bit more of an ante-post approach. Appreciate more risk - but as fun anyway rather than our serious / considered personal investments - why not? I am very much an amrchair punter but happy to get invilved and shift prices!

Just to confirm my understanding is correct...the point of the plunge is seeing if you can all get on at a good price and move the market? But you want to give the information to some people first, make sure you all get the 'good' price and then share with everyone else?!
Out of interest, what sort of price change has there been in recent years? I.E. from the price you put the 'plunge horse up at to SP how many points shorter is they SP on average say over the last 5 years?

The price on most of the plunges over the years has dropped considerably. In at least a couple of cases it's gone off half the price or less. Don't think we've had a winner yet though. And of course, it's nigh-on-impossible to determine how much of the price move is down to the plunge. I suspect very little, especially these days when the traffic on the forum is minimal. At Cheltenham, there's so much money that it takes a fair old whack to move a price.

If you you guys aren't going to chuck your stone into the pond until midday Tuesday then it'll need to be a pretty big stone to make a ripple.

I'm not involved, but good luck to you all.

I assume your eventual selection will be in one of the handicaps. Not usually a subset of races I concentrate on, but fwiw this year I've played in 3 (I won't invoke after-timing ire by mentioning prices): Mal Dini (Ultima, NR), A Toi Phil (Pertemps), Fine Brunello (Fred Winter) - so avoid those whatever you do!
