ROUND 5 - Saturday February 10

It is top quality races, top jocks and top trainers all the way on Saturday with a Premier card at Te Rapa and a stakes studded program at Caulfield in Melbourne. The Waikato card for us features 3 staying contests while every race at Caulfield is a sprint of one sort or another. You will need to be a versatile 🐊crocodile to snap up the big bucks !

Clash of the day sees the in-form Showtime cast take on the heavy hitters of the Styx franchise fresh from snatching victory from the jaws of defeat over The Coven last week.  The big guns for each side Gordy and Paul (Harewood) face off in a terrific personal battle.

The Cat-girls of Magic go hunting Seagulls this week , each looking to bounce back from losses last week and again the top two scorers - former Naki team-mates Heather and Maurice - meet in a vital HTH. Another pair of top aggregate scorers - Black Caviar and Midnight Caller - do battle as the highlight of the Kaos vs Old Mate encounter. Both sides are in winning form and this looks closer than the table may suggest.

Finally, we have the train-wreck encounter of two sides with one victory between them in 8 matches: the chaotic Max Factory crew take on the rotten Reapers. I expect plenty of trash talk, some close encounters and a thrashing or two, but at the end of the day ONE of these teams HAS to come out a winner ! Just who will it be ??? My money is on the Factory but with the form I am in picking winners at present, the Reapers might be grinning 🤣

After just 4 Rounds everyone has suffered at least one personal defeat, an indication of the closeness of tipping skills on here but Barb and Graeme are looking to get the winless monkey off their back so look out Hesi and Pam !

Remember you must have at least 6 different picks (of 20) for those who post after their opponent

seems A real Battle of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. The Greatest Western ever filmed.  Clint at his best . 

and with The Good "Blondie" Blue Shooting for Plenty of Winners this week , we know who gets the Gold Coin in the end at the cemetery showdown. 💰

the Bad "Angel Eyes" Max will be firing winners from the Hip..... and The grim Ugly form of the Reapers by ugly "Tuco" Hesi looks sure to continue ⚰️.

Knew I wouldn't have to wait long for Robert's picks!!

Sorry some off-colour humour from my teens folks after PJ's crocodile reference (apologies for any offence caused)

What did an impatient Crocodile Dundee say to the saltwater croc

Give me a blow job and make it snappy!

you're on fiyah again LB, though Max woulda preferred to be Mad insteada Bad, cos poor cap'n Max is really just a big softie with an Anger problem when he loses...but I'm All Cried Out (to quote 'Alf' Moyet) and have left The Crying Room door firmly shut.

The cunning Maxi Plan is to win a few points this weekend and rip into the Triple Joker the following week...unbelievably, we cant play it this weekend against the Reapers. By the end of Round 7, reckon we'll be in the top three.

There's only one Mad Max in the Movies mate ... patrolling the Aussie wastelands like a true Badass lol.....but not meaning bad of character. We have Big Bad Max in the Factory as in bad of intention. Sometimes you say these Bad boys are hard to Beat as in act of intention. (you're not really Bad mate) 

Intention is we are gunnin' for these 'Reapers' this week . Let's hope GEE isn't firing blanks , and PETE has turned his Mrs into like the famed lady gunslinger  'Annie Oakley' with some backyard target practice and sniping some winners....... Have her tuned up for the Triple Joker playing Hesi  the Outlaw of The RP Land.  

Here's the Bad boys from the Factory ...ready to Go Maxi ..... High Noon Saturday ??😂
