Well done to anyone that made it through to the knockouts! I hope everyone enjoyed the 2nd day of action. I also hope that the settlement is right, shout up if it isn’t, ty.

The bottom match was a very interesting one today, Undertaker got off to a flier with a 300 pointer courtesy of his NAP – Kemari for the boys in the blue. A Strong win only choice saw him take command, but Lucky Luciano hit back with a huge 22/1 EW way winner! A standside run from Detorri secured him 275 points, which turned out not to be enough, LL can consider himself very unlucky not to qualify with 275 points on the board.

On the other end of the spectrum, I owe an apology to TN Mafia, I accused him of picking a horse that was due to run next week, that bit is true, but it was indeed withdrawn from today. Just 44 points (LOVE NAP) was the lowest total to go through today into the quarters, that’s the way to do it, best of luck!

Stocks must know a good thing when he sees one, he struck twice today with fair priced NAP and NB efforts, just to make sure of success he played them each way! His total of 317.5 was the highest of the round well done.

Good luck to the final 8 tomorrow. Here is the draw:

Report undertaker June 16, 2021 9:11 PM BST
I do feel I need to point out that the SP of my winner was subject to a rule 4, and after this has been applied, Lucky Luciano actually scored more points than me. Now I appreciate that rule 4s are not covered in the rules of this comp (because let's face it, you can't cover every eventuality) but I would feel uncomfortable progressing to the next round without pointing this out.

Swadds, you are the organiser, so the final decision is yours, but as I see it, you have 3 options:

1) Stick with your original settlement, ignore the R4 and I progress
2) Apply the R4 and Lucky Luciano progresses
3) Nominate an early race for tomorrow as a tie-breaker

Whatever you decide, I will go with, but I felt I should fess up to the R4 situation.

Lucky Luciano, I guess you probably spotted the R4 situation as well, fair play to you for congratulating me without pointing it out.

Fair play for spotting Undie

The rules were set up to be as clear and simple for all


Similar to the last comp, STAKE WILL NOT BE RETURNED ON WINNINGS BETS, this is to discourage the use of short prices where possible, each way betting is permitted BUT WILL BE SETTLED TO STANDARD NUMBER OF PLACES TO ¼  OF THE ODDS FOR EVERY SELECTION JUST TO HELP THE SIMPLE SETTLER SAVE A BIT OF TIME. You cannot take a price and all bets are settled to official SP.

So in the light of the rules you go forward

Rule 4 applies to all bets - deduction 15p in the pound

Report DeSSieReborn June 16, 2021 10:06 PM BST
the rule 4 is applied because a new market couldn't be formed thus the SP is a false SP until that rule 4 deduction is applied. I wouldn't want to lose in LLs situation, and wouldn't want to win in The Undertakers (No offence Undertaker). I applaud you Undertaker for your honesty, but my vote has to be 2.

13 ran NR: Kyprios (withdrawn, upset in stalls), Zinc White (unsuitable ground) R4: Kyprios was withdrawn. Price at time of withdrawal 9/2. Rule 4 applies to all bets - deduction 15p in the Pound.

My view is option 2    Just think if it had been in a race where there was an odds on favourite withdrawn just before the off;it would be a nonsense not to  apply a rule 4.
Huge credit to undertaker for raising the matter.
Report penzance June 16, 2021 10:12 PM BST
the only player to notice was the undertaker.
For his honesty I believe 3,the tie breaker,
should be called in.
Report differentdrum June 16, 2021 10:13 PM BST
I am going to go 3 because I think Rule 4's should count. An odds on favourite doesn't go into the stalls and someone gets very fortunate with the resultant SP if deduction is applied. I don't think that's the sort of luck you should get.

Report differentdrum June 16, 2021 11:12 PM BST
Strict interpretation yes in my opinion 2 is correct, but given the result has already been called then 3 is the fairest approach.

In an ideal world to keep it Royal Ascot they could use the 2.30, but that would only work if all three parties were not intent on wanting to pick something in that race for the quarter final. It's difficult, but I am sticking with 3.
