ROUND 8 - Saturday May 1

Selections Close off at 12.14pm (NZ time)

The season has turned and the Sydney Carnival has concluded so for the second half of the comp we head into the likes of South Australia (this week) and later Queensland to uncover some more tricky races for you to find the winners of, as the tracks head towards the heavy in NZ.  Brisbane fields looked a bit ordinary this week and there will be plenty of races there to come so it's off to Adelaide for Saturday's conclusion.

After Tom the Terror's defeat last week no one is unbeaten but 5 competitors boast a 5-1 record: Tom & Sharne (this pair clashing this week), Geoff & Steve P (also meeting head-on this round) and Ray (bye this week).  A big welcome to Jase who steps in for Baby who has withdrawn for personal reasons. We hope she returns soon.

The top of the table clash between the bombastic Barellans and the sh*t hot Seagulls is the headline act for Round 8 and it promises to be a cracker with some heavy hitters locking horns across the tie. My money is on the 'Gulls ! Don't think the Bye Boys - Ardern Up - will be taking on this match for their aggregate hunt....

The Escapists will attempt to bring the Maxis back down to earth after their Joker-fuelled success last week while the Basement Battle ensues between Showtime and The Ramones to see who will occupy the cellar come Sunday (might be neither as it happens)...

16 hours ago, brown fox said:

Blackiston told RSN he had no memory of the fall.

“All I remember is the horse went down and then I had these misty dreams, things like white roses and green fields. It was bizarre,” he said.

“I honestly didn’t know if I was alive or dead but I didn’t see any flames so I was pretty confident I wasn’t going to hell.”

Max says he shoulda been worried about feeling the flames more than seeing 'em!
