Looks like we are still awaiting Billy L and Wonders,fingers crossed they show up.Anyone up for volunteering as captain yet? I will take it on if nobody fancies it but it would be rather ad hoc due to commitments,if you are ok with that let me know.

As you may have noticed the previous thread heading was encrypted lol,no idea how that happened and never even noticed.If you can sign in here with selections and just to let the team know you are aware would help.

This is a cracking team,whatever anyone thinks.Do your own thing,however you feel not feel obliged.YET to make a selection just because someone else has.

We might be cobbled together but I can assure you,the best teams I have worked with were similar.NEC is probably the best tipster on the Forum,consistent and reliable.

The rest of us are what we are and that is what makes us a good fit,forget what you see me posting on the main Forum,it is not my real self,it is a persona.

Ask Skinto if you care to,I shook his hand and we more or less agreed why we were on this Forum,I just hope you all get the gist.

Hi lads,stew has pointed out that my last two selections were put up too late so putting it up here now but won't put it on the selections thread until closer to the off.If the price shortens significantly I may change the bet from ew to win or leave it alone.I have picked Midnight Aurora in the 1350 hrs Ludlow,she is dropping slightly in trip and I think it should suit her.Dan Skelton has raced her from her debut at the age of 5 and is now the owner as of 30th April,I am hoping he is expectant of a bold show.Her best chance imo is to be ridden close to the pace in this,don't want to see her held up in rear.

Currently 13/2 and weak so hope it stays like that,will post again about 10 mins before the off to let you know what I decide.

Hi scrabbler and lads,it was there scrabbler,round 6 week one thread,unfortunately.Hope I will make up for it next week,down to you guys to build a foundation this week.Provided we can manage a top 3 from now until the end we should be in a good  position.Far from done and dusted though so a case of concentrate and consolidate.

Many thanks to the other teams reps who have commented on our thread e.g stewpot,dessie et al who have been kind and get the nature of the compy.Elsewhere we have been called mongrels,fine,we are cobbled together somewhat but a good mongrel will always outlive a purebred,established fact!!!!Wink

All tongue in cheek obviously but a dark shadow is cast over the main Forum.Only just realised that the majority of the trolls inhabit opposing teams and are multi user names.Like the great Cassius Clay stated about getting into the opposition minds,we win even before the fight!!!

Bear that in mind when observing how inept they are but try and understand their insecurity every time you hammer them.Wink
