As it would appear I have not yet been usurped as captain in spite of some disappointing results in the last competition, could I ask all previous members of the team to make known your willingness to continue as a memebr of this esteemed team. It would be helpful if you could all also confirm that your training programme is going well and that there are lots of decent priced winners waiting to be unvailed when the competition starts on Sunday 19th September.

Not for me ud. Admirable as he is he's now on his highest mark ever against some likely improvers. Not sure he beat much at Kelso last time either.

At the prices VWs appeals at 10/1. Skeltons had a nice warm up in a hurdle and I always pay attention to Emma Lavelles runners; not convinced about TDM from Nicholls stable.

But then again I'm wrong more often than I'm right Sad

Well done all the team, it has certainly been an impressive team performance with different members coming to the front in different weeks. No pressure this week, but I think we should keep tryimg to reach 100 points as a minimum and then up the ante when the knock out stages begin.

OK. Really fancy Bronze River in the 7.30 at Newcastle.
Trading at 3.45 at the moment but reckon it will go off at under 3.00 so 10pts on the nose for me.

As we are already through to the knock out stages I suppose I will go for Bringitonboris for the 4th time in this competition in the 6.10 at Newcastle. Up 4 lbs for his win last time out, that may well stop him winning but I would probably me more annoyed if he won and I hadn't picked him rather than if I pick him and he doesn't win.

Only the one winner for us this week and the lowest total of the 4 semi-finalists,so I suppose we deserved to lose but the SP of the 12.50 at Wetherby, I still find very strange. The other way round and we would have been in the final. However as there is no VAR it is over. Thanks to all the team for some good performances over the weeks and if undecided has the energy to run a furthr team competition I hope you will all be willing to participate again.

Sorry about the NR selection lads, rules are rules its an impossible task to please everyone, a really grim way to advance though.

With it being a big tie in the grand scheme of things I would of found it more than fair enough if Undecided had forced me to pick another selection, he has done the right thing even letting us know that that would be the sel if I couldnt post, which sadly I couldnt post at the time.

Doubt much can be done about this, and it makes it even more awkward the organiser is in your team. But if people genuinely do feel disgraced, you can liase with the Cpt Piccadilly, I'd be open to choosing something tomorrow (odds on so the same result is still likely) but it gives both teams a chance. If our lads feel its as simple as "rules are rules" then id get that too.
Report undecided November 13, 2021 4:50 PM GMT
Don't worry about it Swad, we beat you in the group stages on same rule, it's just one of those things, the rule is there for a reason and same for everyone.
