Yes it seems like a last minute panic but we got all our picks in,perhaps capt should make the pick looking at what others have put up as reserve rather than leaving that to the individual
Report lockup May 15, 2021 3:14 PM BST
Well yes you can't put a selection forward and say use mine it's better than the other two.
Report madhatter May 15, 2021 5:36 PM BST
Sorry lads - I put up one and hoped/assumed that no-one would then feel the need to name any others as it's been a long time since I did two in a week.
Then I got a call to go out drinking so never got to check replies or personally post my choice up and have only just got back home...haven't seen a result since about 2 o'clock.
Report madhatter May 15, 2021 5:39 PM BST
As lockup said...if we all end up picking a second weekly selection then how do we decide the final choice?
Report dukeofpuke May 15, 2021 5:49 PM BST
Has to be capt call very easy to say bluenose7 wildcard picked by madhatter,aquarius,lockup,qqking,The Sawyer,dukeofpuke one of those,if capt not around then say so and delegate someone else lets say me as i'm normally around Saturdays

You should do what happens in TOFTL, the captain doesnt bother asking anyone else. Just takes them all for himself!
Report Aquarius May 15, 2021 8:53 PM BST
Apologies to all my team members, I think I messed up trying to give everyone a chance of the wildcard selection today. I had set a 2.30 cut off time for making a selection and as a result any selections for races before that timecould not really be taken into consideration. So for next week and all future weeks, on the bais it appears that bluenose is never going to make a reappearance, someone will get the wildcard selection for that week, and will have the whole week to make their 2 selections. So invitations are invited for the wildcard for next week. Anyone who has already made 2 wildcard selecions should defer until everyone has had two wildcards. Please make your wishes here so that there is no doubt as to whose entitlement it is each week.

Looking at this week's meetings I won't even be looking until Sandown on Thurs so no wildcard for me thanks.
Report madhatter May 15, 2021 10:41 PM BST
There is at least one jumps meeting every day this coming week and I am therefore happy to take the wildcard if ok with you guys?
Especially as my initial choice is going to be 10pts win Sizing Cusimano - 4.47 Stratford tomorrow.
Cheers, Mad. DevilDevilDevil

OK this week's wildcard recipient is madhatter. Good luck with that one today
Report madhatter May 16, 2021 5:32 PM BST
Well that was disappointing...thought it would beat the morning favourite Embole, which it did, but didn't see two others still finishing in front of it when assessing the race.
Sorry lads.Sad

Afternoon all

Can't see anything I like tomorrow at Stratford so will put up Wishing and Hoping in the Worcester hunter chase this evening. Looks a three horse race (but I always discount Maxwell) so 2/1 ish in a 2 horse race appeals to me!!

I have been struggling to see a wildcard choice this week...Go Steady @ 2/1 win only 18.10 Stratford is the best one left for me.
If one of you chaps can see something better at a longer price then by all means please use the wildcard instead of me, otherwise I will post the above selection up 5 minutes before the 3 o'clock deadline.

Rather than waiting to near the cut-off time I have now posted my pick of Count D'orsay in the 3.50 York. Was tempted to go win only but any place points may be decisive in the final placings, so have made it EW.

We avoid last place, not exactly much to shout about but there is still hope for beating last year's overall 4th.

At least we got some points today, unlike last Saturday. Didn't quite manage a three figure total but at least we weren't last. We started this competition well, let's see if we can finish it in a similar manner.

We have 4 more wildcard selections to make in this competition. These should be made by 4 different team members. So I suggest anyone wishing to make a proposed selection posts on here before 1.00 and then a decision can be made as to which one should be picked. The same position will apply for the following 3 Saturdays.
Report The Sawyer May 29, 2021 7:46 AM BST
My selection today is Absolutely Dylan EW 2.10 Cartmel

The only other I like (but not really my sort of price) is Jemima P in the 7.00 Ffos Las

Slight reservation would be that it was a nr on gs ground and does look a better horse on good.

Not much interest in the wildcard; The Sawyer's proposal is a bit too short for me and dukeofpuke hasn't given a specific selection, so I think I will post my suggestion of Look My Way in the 4.30 Cartmel EW.

I have gone for Heights Of Abraham in the 3.25 Musselburgh, a previous selction in this competition. No doubt will take a time to get going from out of the stalls but the smallish field and extra distance from its previous run should help. For a wildcard I would consider another of my previous selections in this competition Kayf Adventure in the 4.45 Hexham.
