Summer Super Draft Comp - Round 4 - Sat Feb 5 - selection thread


Recommended Posts

ROUND 4 - Saturday Feb 5

Offngone and The Max Factors each look to bounce back from defeats last week while both Surf N Turf and the Grim Reapers are seeking back-to-back wins. The Hot Baches have a much better aggregate than the Yahabebees but find themselves 4 points behind them, a situation they hope to rectify come Saturday while the winless (and almost pointless) Grey Ways and Wurzels franchises will each be looking to make up for lost time and points when they clash head-on. Will we see a double-header Joker play ???

Amazingly, after just 3 Rounds only Ian is 3-for-3 with Max tasked to bring about his first defeat. Long odds I think....

Some interesting races this week spread across 4 venues with the Inglis Millennium being the highlight with 8 runners boasting a win in their last 2 starts while the final 2 races from Caulfield look wide open with some great odds sure to be on offer for some form horses. Good luck everyone.


Due to problems that have occurred so far in the comp the following changes will be made:

a) The posting deadline for selections will now be ONE HOUR before the first race in the comp. Everyone is expected to post by this time.

b) After the one hour deadline, Captains (or a nominated person from their team) will be able to post any scratching sub, missing BBs, etc necessary. They will have 30 minutes to do this. If you have team members who have posted to your own private message chat then this is the time to post their selections to the selection thread.

c) After this 30 minute period (1 hour before race 1 to 30 minutes before race 1) the thread will be deemed closed and no correspondence, changes, selections will be accepted after this time. Period. No excuses will be accepted. In that time I will post the extrapolations for the first race, time permitting. As in the case of Steve P yesterday who originally posted a completely wrong set of picks, this will need to be fixed before the 30 minute close off. The corrections will need to be in a new post not as an added post to the original selection post.  

d) THIS IS IMPORTANT. EVERY POST to the selection page needs to be a new message/thread. Do not edit posts and do not post on the thread on which you have already posted your selections. Most people do this already using a heading like "Craig's Scratching Subs" or something similar. If you don't follow this rule and add posts to your selection thread they will be ignored and any changes requested will not be granted. If Captains notice that team members have disobeyed this rule then they will have to correct the issue in a new post.


4. Scratching Rule. You may post replacements for any scratching by making a new post entirely (i.e. new thread) clearly indicating your replacement selection(s). This may now be done any time up until 1 HOUR before the first race which I will refer to as CLOSING TIME. If you have not posted by then your Captain (or other team member) will have 30 minutes to submit a replacement set of selections on the selection thread (in a new post/thread). Any scratchings that require subs can also be submitted by the Captains at that time. It would be very helpful if you are at all able, to please check your selections for scratchings, before closing time. Once we are 1 HOUR away from the start of race one, the selection thread will be opened to allow everyone to view everyone else's selections and for Captains to have 30 minutes to post any subs, BBs  etc. Selections cannot be changed at this point except in the event of scratchings or numbers posted that don't exist for that specific race. After this point - 30 minutes prior to race 1 - ALL selections are LOCKED IN. Late scratchings will go to the TAB sub followed by the 2nd favourite by TAB win odds in that order. If more than one horse meets the latter criteria then the replacement will be the horse with the higher number. 

Post your selections here. Remember, two selections per race; one best bet in each country; scratching replacements on a new post (don't edit your original). You won't know your opponents selections until the selection thread is opened up 20 minutes before the start of comp race #1.

I think Rex (in The Grey Ways) won PJ's last comp , so you are in for a torrid time Pete. the master might strike.?    

The Aybees are bound to be hanging around like one of those very annoying mosquito's. Likely to put you off your game , while you swat away madly .

Good luck though !! (and keep away from the Mortein lol..)

I'm calling a pre race Stewards enquiry on my opponent today!

One, because I am led to believe  that there is three in our competition, with my opponent getting a "helping hand" from a certain  nurse Gla Gla Gladys Emmanuel.

Secondly, the rider of Sir Galivant maybe holding substances within,that are not in the laws of racing. Rex, can you kindly piss in the pot before leaving the birdcage!

Good luck today, I feel I'm in for a rough ride.

Got my old nemesis  PJ today whom I would estimate has defeated me in 7 of our last 8 match ups. 

My single victory came, as I recall, when PJ turned up all cock-a-hoop after posting a huge individual score in his previous match. 

Much like today....😉
