National Championships Summer Super Comp - Round 7 (FINAL) - Sat March 6


Recommended Posts

ROUND 7 - Saturday Mar 6

CLOSING TIME FOR SELECTIONS: 4.20pm Saturday (NZ time)

Okay - Needs must ! The races have a back-to-front look this week with the Oz races following hard on the heels of the fillies race at Otago and then the wait for the conclusion at Ellerslie on Sunday (if it happens). If Ellerslie is abandoned and not re-scheduled for the next 5 days then the comp will conclude at Riccarton on Thursday (heaven help us !).

IMPORTANT: Selections for ALL races (including Ellerslie on Sunday) must be submitted before Saturday's closing time. If you have scratchings among your Ellerslie selections (comp races 7-10) then you may submit replacements before 2.00pm NZ time on Sunday.

Some pointers for the weekend-

1.  It's patently ridiculous that 60% of the Blues team make up half the "Serendipitous Six". Someone needs to give them a thumping...

2. Three Jokers left to be played but no double Joker clashes

3. Captain Howie is the only player to have won more than 4 of his 6 head-to-heads and also the only player to feature in both the Magnificent Seven and The Unfortunate Five

4. There is evidence that the catch-cry "we can dooz it" is rather unlucky - just ask Rob

5. Expect some team members from the Steelers & Ferdies to go rough with their picks as the 5-0 result they need to have any show also needs to have a BIG aggregate to catch the Kats

6. It's possible the Final Round could be split across two days. All selections will still have to be submitted on the Saturday. Time to get your weather apps out ??
