Sunday was a tense last day of the round of 16.

Steamship has sadly ran out of steam in Match 1, his selection ran third and lost by less than a length but that was not enough to see him take any points to pass Glentoby. Glens selection wasn’t up to much at Southwell but that didn’t matter, he goes through in the top match.

Neither selection scored in Match 2 which left things the way they were and Bluenose prevails, Norfolk led earlier in the week but just the 1 hefty winner from Bluenose earlier in the week was enough, that seems the way to go in this comp. Thanks to Norfolk for a good laugh in the group stages!

Different Drum’s selection fell when beaten in Match 3, meaning the Duke was through to the next round no matter how his selection ran, it was well backed to 2/7 and scored to boost his points tally. Good work.

Smokey Malone was a fantastic selection by Foyleswar and it conceded 1st run only to be beaten by Fast Emma, his selection was 9/1 and he bet it each way, sadly this only provided 36 points and didn’t cover the deficit that Madhatters had built up earlier in the week, he was through regardless what happened with his selection in the 4:05. Freakishly Madhatters replied with a 9/1 placed effort of his own, that topped his score up to see him compete for a home tie next round, nice.

Match 5 luckily all selections ran so it was simple, a NR might of been complicated, Maykir went off favourite but couldn’t go in for Lockup, Adams selection didn’t grab a place in the same race so that group was left as it started. Well done Adamanty who is through.

Posy was looking to top his total up with Zylan before his opponent could take a stab at him in the last race at Southwell, Zylan didn’t go in but he was still sat pretty with 127 points, Al Suit Eile was a market drifter for Mmm later in the day, the price would of easily been enough to see him safely through to the quarters, but it didn’t win and Posy is safely though.

Round leader NE Correspondent has been relentless and today was no different, there was some carnage in his race but he managed to back a well priced 15/2 placed selection at Punchers, maybe one to watch for next time, I think that was a little tenderly handled, albeit he was able to add 30 points to the total, he was then left on 252. Jimnast had a mountain to climb and selected Motawwafeq in the last event at Southwell, and it went in! He had a 220 point gap to bridge and its job done with an SP of 7/1 scoring 280 points! Commiserations to NEC, thats a huge total to be dumped out with.

Finally the comp organiser is also dumped out in dramatic fashion, Match 7 was good fun all week, both players briefly lead and I have had the upper hand the last couple of days but only just by a thin margin. The end result has ended anything but tight, as above with Jimnast, Penzance had the same winner which provided him 280 points and a well deserved spot in the quarters. PS I’ve got to admit your selection forced me to have a little look at the race, seeing it was 14/1 overnight, I thought why on earth has he tipped that, but it did look like it had more chance than that on paper? You’ve made me slightly richer in the process, I debated whether or not to back it all day and seeing a bit of money for it I thought id have a 10er, im 100 odd quid richer cheers! Well done for winning the round Penzance too. Brave selections have been rewarded.

Very good luck to all players next round, hopefully all last 16 losers including myself will play along next time its organised, I’ve enjoyed my time in the comp good luck to all that remain, I will still do the organising, PLEASE GIVE ANY CORRECTIONS TO SCORES ASAP AND SAY WHETHER IT HAS AFFECTED YOUR FINISHING POSITION IF POSSIBLE PLEASE, IF THERE ARE NONE I WILL DRAW THE NEXT ROUND.

As it stands:

Home tie: (selections by time of 1st race or pass used)


Away: (Selections by 11:30am or pass used)

Duke of Puke

THIS THREAD WILL ACT AS DAY 1 , 2 and 3 OF THE QF STAGE, after that I plan to keep a daily table as I have been doing previously, the idea of this is that it should be easy for participants to see what is going on if they need to in the less crucial early days of the round, no need for a table or a writeup each day early on, thanks again all good luck.

Madhatters yeah that is void, not from a petty point of view , just to protect the rules.


If Adam sees this and gives it the ok then it can stand as a selection, if not void and pass.

Hi Jimnast,I doubt they did but I suspected my fate when the tapes went up,certainly one to keep an eye in the next couple of runs and if upped in trip and less testing ground may be of interest.Hobbs either knows or suspects better given the patience of the connections or just happy to collect the training fees,I suspect the former.

How the hell did you guess that swad?Had a great day on Tuesday,yesterday was ok,today just felt washed out,not slept since 2000 hrs yesterday.

Rather than sleeping at the mo,feel mega energised,an hour or so and probably collapse,the way it goes on drugs,so my OH tells me.The bonus for me is this compy gives me a reason to try and remember,same as the last one.

Out of the wheelchair,shame as it was bloody good fun.Found out why I had the mini stroke yesterday and it was nothing to do with genetics etc,purely down to a bit of metal embeded in me for over 30 years,the other stuff is,clear scans so far.

So very,very happy,only 26 Kilos to regain to get near normal,many,many thanks for putting up with me!!!!!HappyHappy
