Just me this year?

I was looking forward to seeing this one Sad

http://www.racingpost.com/news/horse-racing/richard-hannon-newmarket-guineas-newmarket-harbour-watch-unlikely-to-make-guineas/1008002/

Unbeaten in three starts as a two-year-old, Harbour Watch missed the end of the last season with a leg injury before he suffered another setback last week.

He was a general 10-1 chance for the Classic but Hannon said: "We have never made any secret of the fact that Harbour Watch faced a race against time to make Newmarket and, following his most recent setback, you would have to say that it is unlikely that he will make it.

"One thing is certain - Harbour Watch won't be running anywhere until we are happy that he is 100 per cent."

Writing on his website, Hannon added: "He is a very valuable racehorse and the Irish 2,000 Guineas and the St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot are both possibles, but we are making no concrete plans until he is right again."

Got 6 or 7 of mine decided.

I might not enter Camelot Shocked Fcuking hate these hyped horses.

I will probably do 2 or 3 list this year and I actually came 448th last year, I was quite pleased.

Not sure when the cut-off is, but far more likely to include Camelot if he doesn't go for the Guineas.

I have a sneaking suspicion what the most popular horse will be but obviously I cannot say anything at this stage

Camelot a hype horse? Surely he's earned his reputation
By:
dtamutants
When: 06 Apr 12 22:42
Not really. He won one of the weakest Gr 1s ever, admittedly very well but still, definitely a hype horse. Roobuck, surely the most selected horse will just be Frankel, no?

Perhaps it's understandable but I think ye may be in danger of tagging all Ballydoyles bright prospects with the same brush. If anything this one has had a lot less hyperbole about it than the likes of SYT,SNA, George Washington or One cool cat. He's a very decent animal and all the evidence suggests he is the most likely winner of the Epsom derby at this point.

Nobody wins putting in the ten most obvious horses (and if you did would probably have to share the prize) and nobody wins by leaving them all out either. I like to take on a fancied horse that I expect to be popular and hope will be a flop. Haven't found my target yet. Waiting to see how the guineas shape up before deciding on my general approach. Nothing like knowing a horse is fit and well.

the flat comp is fecking impossible, 3yos a total lottery at the time you need to put the entries in, and total guesswork.  winner of derby and the arc not even in the comp last year.  That said, will probably fling a few lines of randoms at it!  how do folk structure their lines in this one, last year I went something like this...

1 x 3yo m miler
1 x 3yo f miler
1 x older horse miler
1 x 3yo m middle distance
1 x 3yo f middle distance
2 x older horses middle distance
1 x sprinter
2 x others, drawn from above + the odd cup horse

Horses are listed on the TTF site and rules (seems to be the same format).

Agree with the previous post that the comp does have its flaws, but the TTF is a long habbit to kick.

It doesn't matter if the classics winners come out of nowhere like last year as it means other entrants wont have them either.

I try and avoid the sprinters tbh, they are far to inconsistent unless you have a superstar like Starspanlgedbanner or Black Caviar.

6 3yo's
4 older horses

that'll do.

TTF Book says entries in by noon on Friday 4th May but website noon on the 5th, which obviously makes more sense.
Be interesting if anyone with an early entry had a crucial winner on the Friday come the shake-up!
Hard to claim a misprint as it is the actual day, ie Friday, which is stated, not just the date in isolation.

Postal entries need to arrive by noon Friday.

Online entries need to completed by noon Saturday. All pretty straightforward to me

OK fair comment and apologies - don't use the book myself.

Nah. It would be terrible,he is only expected to race once more.

Is going to be frustrating if they put him in two 50 pointers and he binks them obviously.

Have been hooked on this Comp since it began and did finish second in a Monthly once.
Good Luck All.

Unfortunately I am clueless but read this

http://bloodstock.racingpost.com/news/bloodstock/so-you-think-heading-for-australian-stud-duties/1014331/

COOLMORE Stud has confirmed the imminent retirement of So You Think to stand at stud in Australia.

The eight-time Group1 winner will head into quarantine "in a few weeks time"  according to a statement from Coolmore.

H0wever, the statement appeared to leave the door open for one final race in Europe.

It said:  "So You Think will join the roster at Coolmore Australia in September at the end of his racing career, alongside Musir, Uncle Mo & Zoffany."

The six-year-oldson of High Chapparal, a top level winner in both hemispheres, was last seen out when fourth in the Dubai World Cup.


He has these entries

19May12  3:45  (Early closer) at Newbury, JLT Lockinge Stakes (British Champions Series) (Group 1)   
 
27May12  3:10  (Early closer) at Curragh, Tattersalls Gold Cup (Group 1)   
 
2Jun12  2:40  (Early closer) at Epsom, Diamond Jubilee Coronation Cup (Sponsored By Investec) (Group 1)   
 
19Jun12  2:30  (Early closer) at Ascot, Queen Anne Stakes (British Champions Series) (Group 1)   
 
20Jun12  3:45  (Early closer) at Ascot, 150th Anniversary of Prince of Wales's Stakes (British Champions Series) (Group 1)   
 
7Jul12  3:10  (Early closer) at Sandown, Coral-Eclipse (British Champions Series) (Group 1)
 


As I say it will be very bad for me if he wins the prince of wales and the coral eclipse.  I expect he could meet Frankel in the former and in the Lockinge.

Put a few lists in. Almost didn't bother. Found the 3yos very hard to weigh up. Big on fillies for the first time.

Good luck everyone.
