In the horse racing calendar, 2021 is the year of the Shrewdie!

Just a quick word from your Captain.

Please enjoy the comp and don't put yourself under pressure to come up with a winner. As much as I'd love to beat the mongrels that make up the rest of the teams in the comp Grin I want this to be a fun comp, one where we can enjoy talking about the game we all love, putting forth ideas and theories and consoling each other if one of selections gets done on the jam stick by 100/1 priced beast that has finished closer to last than 1st in all its previous 16 races. If you can chip in with the odd winner? Great! But its not the end of the world if you go the whole comp without putting one up........not naming names, but it does happen! Plain

Sign in chaps & let battle commence! Grin

Thanks SS, only a few points on the board but lets hope they prove the difference when we win this round. Grin

Thanks Platty. Happy The door is always open for Tiger to return and will shall keep a few old speckled hen's in the ice bucket for him....ale lovers will be up in arms about my storage method!

RM booked up tonight so connections must mean business. My wildcard pick is running again in the same race, he's won over CD and should run well & Punchbowl Flyer looks to be running into form. Good luck Platty.

Well said everyone regarding our man Tiger,thats what he is to us,our man.

Sounds like you have been incredibly busy over the last few weeks,up at all hours,that must take its toll.

Friday nights will not be the same.

Along with the rest of the heathen shrewdies,been a blast from day 1,you have been a big part of that.

Whatever you decide,behind you 100%.

Picking up on those small things can make a difference to our own punting long term.

No worries Swad. I just wish I'd put the horse up that broke your duck in the comp! Really sweet on my double figured price  selection yesterday, hit odds on IR but got picked up close home. Also backed one at 16s on here that hit 1/50 IR before getting touched off. I put in a keep lay at a very short price on all my bets so as to get my stake back, its something I've added into my betting over the last couple of years. It kind of helps me to accept these losers but I'd much rather they got the job done and I give 1/2pt of my potential profit back!

Very sweet on Soto Sizzler in the 5.15. He's a 10lb better horse here and at Goodwood and I'm hopeful he can turn the form around with the fav. I'm on one at a huge price Ante Post in the Derby so I may put him up as the wildcard. I'm very much open to suggestions but I think we will need one at a price.
